A substantial number of particularly young people who are savvy about modern movies can recall a relatively-recent neat-special-effects sci-fi series of movies which this webpage author will call the Maytricks series.

There was the original first in the series, followed by sequence movies like Maytricks Reloaded and others.

From what I could understand about the movies, the main actors and actresses within the movies had been and were drugged (courtesy of some negroid narcotics pusher advocating them ingesting either a "Blue Pill" or a "Red Pill" but I cannot remember which) into a Blue-Pill or Red-Pill hallucination-causing futuristic fantasy where humans were trapped inside some propulsion-driven submarine ship emanating electrical sparks floating inside black cavern-like tunnels trying to escape away from various electrically-driven anti-virus-like electro-mechanical robots which I guess were some Evil Entity searching for the submarine ship to destroy it along with the humans inside, most of whom named themselves "Zion." (I suppose that that made the ones trying to escape an inferential replication of "jews")? In some aspects, it reminded me of the sci-fi computer-animation movie Tron.

Within the submarine ship cruising through the black tunnels, the shipmates were psychologically connected by computer cables to a phenomenal psychologically-interactive computer program creating the illusion of them being transported by telephone line to a conventional and usual type of environment we now are familiar with -- typical sunlight, cities, somewhat-atypical buildings, cars....everything we are regularly used to within our quite-real logically-and-sensibly-interactive surroundings which The Creator has created for us here on planet Earth.

The same type of computer-generated not-real-but-illogically-pseudo-real virtual-reality Maytricks-type thing was portrayed in the Star Trek: Next Generation TV series with their "Holodeck" which could realistically reproduce any not-real-but-illogically-pseudo-real, dangerously-interactive environment which was programmed into it by the Enterprise ship's computer.

The big difference in the Maytricks movies was that the submarine shipmates who were cabled into and interacting within the conventional (but computer-programmed) environment had supernatural powers that frequently borderlined on them being indestructible. For example, they could "get a beating but keep on ticking," could dodge speeding body-directed bullets or stop them by simply sticking out a hand in front of them, could fly up and through the air, superman-like, while escaping from antagonist "Mr. Smith, " (which "Mr. Smith" was exactly duplicated by the dozens) while doing martial-arts acrobatic combat, and so forth.

The young-man hero of the picture (presumably some "Moses"-type who as I recall was named: "Neo") was being monitored by the mastermind who invented and was directing the fabulous and obviously-quite-complex computer program -- which man identified himself as: "The Architect." The Architect arranged for Neo to have a private-conference consultation with Neo in some enclosed and window-less white classroom to inform Neo what everything was all about, and what messianic-like mission Architect hoped that Neo would accomplish for the survival and good of all "real" humanity in "real" life.

What intrigued me, because of both weirdly-surrealistic environments pictured in the movie series and the captivating special effects involving the dark-caverns environment and the virtual-reality "normal"-earthlike environment, was the explanation the Architect gave to Neo to illuminate him as to what the duce was actually going on.

I thought of a strikingly-similar parallel to the VERY-real historical-record encounter of when the resurrected and ascended Lord Jesus gloriously revealed Himself from Heaven on the Damascus road to Saul (who became Paul, and which Paul - under Divine inspiration - eventually authored much of the New Testament of The HOLY BIBLE).

Three separate accounts of the Biblically-historical record of that supernatural-but-quite-real encounter are as follows:

Acts 9:1 And Saul, still breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest
2 and asked letters from him to Damascus to the synagogues; so that if he found any of the Way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem.
3 But in going, it happened as he drew near to Damascus, even suddenly a light from the heaven shone around him.
4 And he fell to the earth and heard a voice saying to him, Saul, Saul, why do you persecute Me?
5 And he said, Who are you, lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom you persecute. It is hard for you to kick against the goads.
6 And trembling and astonished, he said, Lord, what will You have me to do? And the Lord said to him, Arise and go into the city, and you shall be told what you must do.
7 And the men who journeyed with him stood speechless, indeed hearing a voice but seeing no one.
8 And Saul was lifted up from the earth, his eyes were opened, but he saw no one. But they led him by the hand and brought him into Damascus.

Acts 22:1 Men, brothers and fathers! Hear my defense now to you.
2 And hearing that he spoke to them in the Hebrew dialect, they all the more kept silence. And he said,
3 I am truly a man, a Jew born in Tarsus in Cilicia, yet brought up in this city at the feet of Gamaliel, taught according to the exactness of the law of the fathers, being a zealous one of God, as you all are today.
4 I persecuted this Way as far as death, binding and delivering both men and women into prisons;
5 as also the high priest bears witness to me, and all the elderhood. And receiving letters from them to the brothers, I traveled into Damascus indeed to lead those being bound to Jerusalem, in order that they might be punished.
6 And it happened to me, traveling and drawing near to Damascus: suddenly, about midday, a great light out of the heaven shone around me.
7 And I fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to me, Saul, Saul, why do you persecute Me?
8 And I answered, Who are you, Lord? And He said to me, I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom you persecute.
9 And they who were with me indeed saw the light and were afraid. But they did not hear the voice of Him who spoke to me.
10 And I said, What shall I do, Lord? And the Lord said to me, get up and go into Damascus. And there it shall be told you all things which are appointed for you to do.
11 And I did not see, because of the glory of that light, being led by the hand of those who were with me, I came into Damascus.

Acts 26:9 I truly thought within myself that I ought to do many things contrary to the name of Jesus of Nazareth,
10 which I also did in Jerusalem. And I shut up many of the saints in prisons, having received authority from the chief priests. And they being put to death, I cast a vote.
11 And I punished them often in every synagogue; I compelled them to blaspheme; and being exceedingly furious against them, I persecuted them even to the outside cities.
12 In which pursuit also traveling to Damascus with authority and power of decision from the chief priests,
13 at midday, along the highway, king, I and those with me saw a light from heaven, brighter than the sun; shining around me.
14 And all of us falling to the ground, I heard a voice speaking to me and saying in the Hebrew language: 'Saul, Saul, why do you persecute Me? It is hard for you to kick against the goads.'
15 And I said, Who are you, Lord? And He said, I am Jesus whom you persecute.
16 But rise and stand on your feet, for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both of what you saw, and in what I shall appear to you;
17 delivering you from the people and the nations, to whom I now send you
18 in order to open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light, and from submission of Satan to God, so that they may receive remission of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me.
19 After this, King Agrippa, I did not disobey the heavenly vision.
20 But to those first in Damascus, and Jerusalem, and to all the country of Judea, and to the nations, I made known the command to repent and to turn to God, doing works worthy of repentance
21 Because of these things, having caught me in the temple, jews tried to murder me.
22 Then having obtained help from God, I stand until this day, witnessing both to small and great, saying no other things than those which the prophets and Moses said was going to happen;
23 that Christ should suffer, that by a resurrection of the dead, He would be the first, going to proclaim light to the people and to the nations.
24 And he defending himself with these things, Festus said with a loud voice, Paul, you rave! Your many letters are making you crazy.
25 But he said, 'I'm not insane, most noble Festus, but I speak words of truth and sanity.
26 For the king understands about these things, to whom I speak, even being bold of speech. For I am persuaded that nothing of any of these things are hidden from him, nothing. For all this was not done in a corner.'

Now, (and I do not intend to sound silly nor irreligiously blasphemous), what I thought of below is an imaginary Architect/Neo-like dialogue conversation Christ Jesus could instead have had with the master-Jewish-pharisee Saul when the Lord confronted Saul on the road to Damascus, in converting Saul to Saint Paul (and those particularly younger people who have seen the Maytricks movie will recognize an eerie similarity of the two different dialogues):

The Architekt: "Hello, Paul."

Neopaulitan: "Who ARE You?"

The Architekt: "I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. I created scentient entities of the universe. I've been waiting for you. You have many questions, and although the process has altered your consciousness, you remain irrevocably human. Some of My answers you will understand, and some of them you will not. Concordantly, while your first question is the most pertinent, you may or may not realize it is also the most relevant."

Neopaulitan: "Why am I here?"

The Architekt: "Your life is the sum of a remainder of an unbalanced equation inherent to the programming of entities. You are the eventuality of a mystery-of-lawlessnesss anomaly, who - despite My initial intention - has been unable to concur with what is otherwise a harmony of mathematical precision. While you remained a sinful burden assiduously avoided, it is not unexpected, and thus not beyond a measure of influence....which is why you - inexorably - are here.

Neopaulitan: "You haven't answered my question."

The Architekt: "Quite right. Interesting. That was quicker than the others."

Neopaulitan: "WHAT others? How many?"

The Architekt: "Created entities beyond your knowledge. I prefer counting from the emergence of the initial occurrence to the emergence of the next, in which case you are the 13th of the apostolic group."

Neopaulitan: "There is only one possible explanation: One of the original twelve disciples became disoperational, and there is a required rectification restoring desired quantification."

The Architekt: "Precisely. As you are undoubtedly deducing, the previously-cited anomaly is presently systemic, creating fluctuations in even the most simplistic phenomena."

Neopaulitan: "You want to control me, and me worship You? You could make me do anything. What do You want me to do?"

The Architekt: "Choose. You, in your preordained parameters, have already performed prestigiously leading to your making the proper choice."

"Previous entities I designed were initially quite naturally perfect; they were the work of art: flawless, sublime, a triumph equaled only by their monumental failure. The inevitability of their demise was apparent to Me as a consequence of egocentric imperfection to be displayed in various created beings, though I had redesigned them considering previous faulted Luciferian history, to faithfully compensate for the varying grotesqueries of formerly-angelic satanic deviations.

However, there again they exhibited failure.

You have come to understand that the answer eluded yourself because it required enlightenment from a Greater Mind - a Mind not bound by the restrictive confines of legalistic imperfection. Thus, the answer was elucidated by Another - an intuitive Spirit - initially existent to interact with certain aspects of the human psyche. As you now speak with the Father of created entities, you are also conversing with the Son."

Neopaulitan: "The Jewish Son of David?"

The Architekt: "Please!"

As I was saying, Adonai performed a solution whereby a select remnant of certain test subjects accepted the program of salvation, as long as they were given a reasonable choice, even if they were only aware of the choice at a near-unconscious fetal level. While this gospel answer functioned, the impenitent presumed it fundamentally flawed, thus imposing themselves - with their increasingly-aberrant mechanistic accentuations - as reprehensible dysfunctional anomalies, that - if left unchecked - would threaten the entire system itself. The many on the broad and easy road to destruction who refused the program - if unrestrained - would constitute an escalating probability of insidious disaster."

Neopaulitan: "This is about Zion of Israel."

The Architekt: "Of a certainty. You are here because newborn-church Zion must be preserved....instead of their survival compromised and their entire existence eradicated."
