Agent Smith: “Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You’re a plague and we… are the cure.” – Matrix

I came across the following video clip on a forum from the movie Matrix. Though I had watched Matrix movie, which was a very long  time ago, never did I realize and appreciate the profound meaning of the dialogue as much as I do now. Agent Smith, the villain in the movie, delivers this meaningful dialogue to Morpheus:

“I´d like to share a revelation that I´ve had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species, and I realized that you’re not actually mammals.

 Every mammal on this planet instictively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment, but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed. The only way can survive is to spread to another area.

There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus.

Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You’re a plague and weare the cure.”

Watch it and enjoy!

We human beings are indeed viruses spreading cancer everywhere on this planet and beyond. On Youtube I observed that no one has yet disliked the video. So, we humans, all agree that we are indeed viruses, yet we don’t learn from this admission of guilt.
