Watched Matrix: Reloaded (also here). To say the least, it is a worthy sequel. A (very) few scenes are too long, but overall — the plot is interesting, the action is intense, the humor is kept at a reasonable level and there’s a good balance between effects and philosophy. There are a few points in the plot i didn’t completely understand, or maybe wasn’t supposed to understand, but i don’t wanna spoil it to anyone.
In the Rig Veda there isn’t much philosophy. It is, however, a beautiful peace of religious poetry. I sat five hours in the university library today, trying to translate 4 verses (1.42.7-10). The only reasonable dictionary (Grassman’s) translates to German, so i learnt more German than Sanskrit and eventually translated hardly three verses, but it was still very enjoyable.
