    In a nutshell ...

    It is the idea that the key to manipulating the physical world mentally is the realization that it all only exists within your mind. Once you realize there is no spoon, you can do anything.

    Entire books have been written on the meaning of "The Matrix," so I've whittled it down to the idea of the spoon, which holds the basic premise of the entire movie.

    This is a quite from the movie "The Matrix".

    In the scene in the film, a young boy, dressed like a swami, is seen to bend a spoon effortlessly and make it twist and reform.

    When asked how this is done, part of his answer contains the phrase 'there is no spoon'.

    To sum up his explanation, physical reality is merely an illusion, and when one realises this so deeply that it becomes obvious and second nature, then one can reform reality however you want.

    In fact the only reality is our perception of it, and we can choose to see it any way we wish and project that back out to others. Essentially we have free reign to shape and change reality in any way that we so desire. The only thing stopping us is our previous experience of reality holds us back from believing that it can be real, even if we try. This is coupled with another quote in the movie “free your mind”.

    In everyday use it often means that a problem is not as bad as we think.

    They're in the matrix right, so the spoon isn't really there even though they can see it and feel it and it really seems like it's there, but it's a trick. now the matrix isn't really a movie so much as a bunch of philosophical bs, and the spoon represents everything in the world that is not as it seems. you only get power over something when you understand it's nature. so the kid can make the spoon do whatever he wants because he knows it isn't really there, the illusion no longer fools him. he's trying to explain this in the most pseudo deep action movie way possible, to that guy from the bill & ted.

    This means the spoon is goon when you loose it or accidentally eat it.
