The controversial public speaker is renowned for his conspiracy theories and claims the world is a hologram.
As part of the programme's Supernatural Week David told the presenters the 1999 film, which stars Keanu Reeves, is not far from the truth.
"If you take the basic concept of the film, our prime reality has been hacked into just like the Matrix - a lot of stuff comes out of Hollywood which is actually telling you the truth," he said.
"In a sense this place is hell," he added.
The former broadcaster's notorious views span across politics, culture, religion and the environment.
His ideals came to prominence in the 1990s after what he describes as a 'eureka' moment.
Our prime reality has been hacked into just like The Matrix.
"You know when you push too many buttons on a computer keyboard and it freezes, that's what happened to me," he explained.
"Now I'm seeing the world in a completely different way - before there were puzzle pieces all over the floor, now suddenly I can see how they fit together.
"I have been saying for so many years that this world is actually holographic."
David also believes that the world's population are being suppressed and it is prominent figures in the media and members of the Royal family who are behind it.
"If you want to keep people in the bubble, one of the fundamental ways of doing that is to suppress the perception of the possible."
"We have to expand our perception of the possible."
"Their power is in us not knowing they exist, and their power is also getting the population to give them their power."
