There is no spoon

The script:
Neo watches a little girl levitate wooden alphabet blocks.
A skinny BOY holds a SPOON which sways like a blade of grass as he bends it with his hand.

Neo crosses to him, sits.

The Boy smiles as Neo picks up a spoon and tries to imitate him.
Despite his best efforts, Neo cannot make it bend.

SPOON BOY:
Your spoon does not bend
because it is just that, a spoon.
Mine bends because there is no spoon,
just my mind.

Neo watches as it curls into a knot.

SPOON BOY:
Link yourself to the spoon.
Become the spoon and bend yourself.

Neo nods, again holding up his spoon.

NEO:
There is no spoon. Right.

He concentrates. The spoon begins to bend just as the
Priestess touches his shoulder.

The movie:
Boy: Do not try and bend the spoon. That’s impossible. Instead only try to realize the truth.

Neo: What truth?

Boy: There is no spoon.

Neo: There is no spoon?

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