are you sure about that..never heard that mentioned before

The page at http://www.autisticsociety.org/article773.html contains a list of people suspected of having high-functioning autism, by which they mean AS. Others on the same list are Bill Gates, Woody Allen, Al Gore, Beethoven, Einstein, Newton, etc.


Keanu Reeves has an official diagnosis of mild AS.

Not that I don't believe you, but do you have a (preferably online) reference that offers more than just conjecture?

Agent Smith is the upholder of justice, and the seeker of order. He is my idol.

Oh, and if you spot Renegade, let me know. . . .

If it was the same place that told him Temple Grandin has an official diagnosis of Asperger's Syndrome then I wouldn't put much faith in it. (Temple was officially LFA.)

Another one; it goes off topic for a while, but then it goes back.

Does kevin costner also have aspergers? Cause i love both keanu reeves acting and kevin costners. Screw NT's and their outrageous facial expressions, a dramatic pause tells so much more.

The movie suggested a couple of things that were supposed to be signifigant that are contrary to reality just to create dramatic moments and concepts. This isn't necessarily bad. This doesn't mean you shouldn't enjoy the movies, but it does mean that the movies aren't necessarily teaching usable lessons about the world.

Something which pissed me off which is what the entire damn movie is based on is that the body cannot exist without the mind. That is complete bullshit. You don't even need the entire brain to keep the body alive.

But it was suggested in the movie to create a dramatic situation. The movie would be far less dramatic if you could survive dying in the matrix. And that neo could cause himself to live through dying in the matrix just by will and some kind of epiphany about the reality(or lack thereof) of the matrix.
