Zhuang Zhou

There is a famous scene in The Matrix where Neo (Keanu Reeves) visits the Oracle, a wise, mysterious, and powerful figure who can see the future.

While there, he encounters a gifted child who bends a spoon with his mind. After doing the impossible, the bald-headed child hands the spoon to Neo and tells him something.

Spoon Boy: Do not try and bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead, only try to realize the truth.

Neo: What truth?

Spoon Boy: There is no spoon.

Neo : There is no spoon?

Spoon Boy : Then you'll see, that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.
