Subject: African-American author of The Matrix receives damages after 6 year dispute

This little known story has met a just conclusion, as Sophia Stewart,
African American author of The Matrix will finally receive her just due
from the copyright infringement of her original work!!!


Monday, October 4th 2004 ended a six-year dispute involving Sophia
Stewart, the Wachowski Brothers, Joel Silver and Warner Brothers.
Stewart's allegations, involving copyright infringement and racketeering, were received and acknowledged by the Central District of California,
Judge Margaret Morrow residing.

Stewart, a New Yorker who has resided in Salt Lake City for the past five
years, will recover damages from the films, The Matrix I, II and III, as
well as The Terminator and its sequels. She will soon receive one of the
biggest payoffs in the history of Hollywood, as the gross receipts of both
films and their sequels total over 2.5 billion dollars.

Stewart filed her case in 1999, after viewing the Matrix, which she felt
had been based on her manuscript, "The Third Eye," copyrighted in 1981.
In the mid-eighties Stewart had submitted her manuscript to an ad placed
by the Wachowski Brothers, requesting new sci-fi works.

According to court documentation, an FBI investigation discovered that
more than thirty minutes had been edited from the original film, in
attempt to avoid penalties for copyright infringement. The investigation
also stated that "credible witnesses employed at Warner Brothers came
forward, claiming that the executives and lawyers had full knowledge that
the work in question did not belong to the Wachowski Brothers." These
witnesses claimed to have seen Stewart's original work and that it had
been "often usedduring preparation of the motion pictures." The
defendants tried, on several occasions, to have Stewart's case dismissed,
without success.

Stewart has confronted skepticism on all sides, much of which comes
from Matrix fans, who are strangely loyal to the Wachowski Brothers.
One on-line forum, entitled Matrix Explained has an entire section
devoted to Stewart. Some who have researched her history and writings
are open to her story. Others are suspicious and mocking. "It doesn't
both me,"said Stewart in a phone interview last week, "I always knew
what was true."

Some fans, are unaware of the case or they question its legitimacy, due
to the fact that it has received little to no media coverage. Though the
case was not made public until October of 2003, Stewart has her own
explanation, as quoted atWWW.aghettotymz.com:

"The reason you have not seen any of this in the media is because
Warner Brothers parent company is AOL-Time Warner ... this GIANT owns
95 percent of the media ... let me give you a clue as to what they own in
the media business... New York Times papers/magazines, LA Times
papers/magazines, People Magazine, CNN news, Extra, Celebrity Justice,
Entertainment Tonight, HBO, New Line Cinema, Dreamworks, Newsweek,
Village Roadshow ... many, many more!... They are not going to report
on themselves. They have been surpressing my case for years..."

Fans who have taken Stewart's allegations seriously, have found eerie
mythological parallels, which seem significant in a case that revolves
around the highly metaphorical and symbolic Matrix series.
Sophia, the Greek goddess of wisdom has been referenced many times
in speculation about Stewart. In one book about the Goddess Sophia, it
reads, "The black goddess is the mistress of web creation spun in her
divine matrix."

Although there have been outside implications as to racial injustice
(Stewart is African American), she does not feel that this is the
case. "This is all about the Benjamin's," said Stewart. "It's not about
money with me. It's about justice."

Stewart's future plans involve a record label, entitled Popsilk Records,
and a motion picture production company, All Eyez On Me, in reference to
God. "I wrote The Third Eye to wake people up, to remind them why God
put them here. There's more to life than money," said Stewart. "My whole
message to the world is about Godand good and about choice, about
spirituality prevailing over 'technocracy.'"

If Stewart represents spirituality, then she truly has prevailed over
the "technocracy" represented in both the Terminator and the Matrix, and
now, ironically, by their supposed creators.

Stewart is currently having discussions with CBS about a possible
exclusive story and has several media engagements in the near future to
nationally publicize her victory.

Additional Excerpts:

June 13th 2004. Sophia Stewart's press release read: "The Matrix &
Terminator movie franchises have made world history and have ultimately changed the way people view movies and how Hollywood do
business, yet the real truth about the creator and creation of these films
continue to allude the masses because the hidden secret of the matter is
that these films were created and written by a Black woman... a Black
woman named Sophia Stewart. But Hollywood does not want you to know
this fact simply because it would change history. Also it would encourage
our Black children to realize a dream and that is ... nothing is impossible
for them to achieve!"

Mother Jones posted a list of "law makers" nationwide who promoted/assisted in the insurrection on our government. ALL should be ousted, stripped of pensions, charged with sedition and felony murder.
If black folks are present at a crime, whether they participated or not, they're charged with as many violations as white folks can conjure up. Felony murder is top of their list. Why not for white domestic terrorist?
25,000 National Guardsmen are set up to protect for Biden/Harris inauguration! Authorities are AGAIN saying that white domestic terrorist are the largest threat in American and to the democratic process.
NOT Black Lives Matter protestors, NOT even foreign terrorist, but American grown white men who are angry about all the white privilege they have.
Twitter is now locking accounts for unusual activity when there is no unusual activity. Apparently if you post to much to soon, it triggers their spider hairs. Never mind that it's (or was) a platform to post information and opinions, now it's just a flat bed from the ghost-of-trump-past. Jack Dorsey/Twitter should be charged with giving trump the media to incite a resurrection against the United States government.
18 family members tested positive for COVID after a holiday party in Pennsylvania, including a one year old baby. YES of course they were white. The mother knew she had "something", but during a world pandemic she didn't think it was COVID. This is insane! They just keep spreading it!
Good news; NRA filed for bankruptcy.
Bad news; Police often kill mentally and handicapped people.
