Lain there are plenty of philosophical metaphors in the first movie, you could use some of them.
So to seems I'll have to elaborate the most interesting aspect of Ghost in the Shell, at least to me - Stand Alone Complex.
Stand Alone Complex is a social phenomenon where unrelated, yet very similar actions of individuals create a seemingly concerted effort. Example given in the series is the Laughing Man case which was started by a individual perpetrator forming sort of a myth around himself as a very skilled hacker (which he wasn't; at least not to extent he was credited) . Later on the logo of Laughing Man was taken by numerous other "copycats" which build an extensive myth around him making him seem as sort of a super hacker (he was credited for being able to live hack anyone in the visible range and replace his face and face of other people with Laughing Man logo).
The "starting" Laughing Man eventually got fed up with this and left the scene leaving it to be exploited by numerous other individuals and organizations.
