    My After-Hours theory is that Idiocracy, Wall-E, and the Matrix in that order are a trilogy.

    In the matrix they Used humans as CPU power they only said battery in the movie because they thought people would be to stupid to know what that was

    Wait, a minute. If the Matrix was created by humans to keep the robots in control, whats the point of making them super intelligent? The Matrix would have to reseemble the real world in order for any of their processing power to be useful. For instance, if you have the day/night cycle line up, you could use a robot to detect whether its day or night, and then input that information to the real world. But only if they are able to detect something happening in the real world are they useful.

    *Or maybe its all just a fun little experiement :)*

    What if all the humans are atually robots, but their taught that they are "humans" on "planet earth" and only a very very small percentagge of their processing power is actually used on Earth. But, of course, what would be the point of complex things, like single celled organisms, or astrology? If humans made the Matrix, they would have no reason to make it any more complicated than a Simpsons Halloween Special. *Naturally, humans and robots will believe what they see, and theres no reason for them to assume theres something above the sky except for a giant light blue tarp and some giant balls of cotton candy if they've been taught that from birth*

    Um.......01 is the number 1 in binary......you can put zeros in front of shit in binary and it has the same effect as putting it in front of base 10 numbers aka nothing.

    I have a theory that the matrix is a movie about a simulation where the characters don't know they're being played by actors.

    also to the Oracle ate some candy that look like a red pill. So what if neo saw that an keep his choice for himself as a sacafice for the one he love. An after he lost her all be had was the people in his mind. Because if smith would have lost neo could have done the same thing. I think neo lost everything in belief, reason, love an self worth to just I want to see another place peacefully. But he like nature went out fighting an accepting if ur a god fearing or believing man an he was or at least was before an more.

  • Carl C'Q
    Carl C'Q 2 months ago

    Neo is the the unknown articutech , an everything before. For he seen many of himself before. Member trinity said he had a choice in the first matrix, but he knew what would happen if he walked down that road. Neo had nothing in a past of family or love so why do we live if not for love. Neo said that outside had curiosity, in the white rabbit . An that killed the cat! So neo world is only what he knew until he unplug of what we know, could have been a drug for pills aren't part of history or a real cure, its mostly a illusion. An religionwise we are all in his likeness but world we didn't create an in a different world if not the real world. Who from we are taught don't like a law breaker , superior being, if not but to be a hero at all risk for mankind in what we believe. An I came to the theory matrix is in are mind keeps us busy. An ever since then in real Life.since then people believe more in there heads the things there doing outside the outsider. An sadly u can tell the in society by sad event's. An before then violence didn't get believable until unbelievable viewing. An sadly technology is the matrix an the movie is just a view into the future an what we creat as man and in are minds, to past in a cycle history until extinction. Matrix is Pandoras box an we all have are part in it.

    I always felt that every iteration of the Matrix just kept going further in. So if there were 7 like the Architect said then Zion was only the 5th Matrix and each time the Matrix program become a corrupt (aka: people become unruly) they make a new Matrix within a Matrix to further trap the minds of the humans.

    Re-watching this, I am reminded of the Star Trek episodes with Professor Moriarty, who is created as a simulation capable of giving Data a challenge and becomes sentient. Long story short, they created a simulation of the universe to make him think that he is free so explores a universe that he believes to be reality just to keep him busy.

    I just figured the flaw in Dan's theory. If the computers are in a double reverse matrix, they're useless. So to be in a Matrix situation, all the inputs a brain (or CPU) recieves have to be of the fake existence, otherwise the brain would definately find out everything is a lie. So, for Dan's theory, there has to be a vast, ulta-powerful super computer AI that can't run anything but Matrix.exe. you try to open pornhub, it instantly realizes there is a user fucking with it. If you can't use the computer to, y'know, compute, what's the point of keeping it around?

    Honestly though, fuck the sequels. The premise is already a lot, never mind when you start nailing random pieces of garbage to it. The movies are dense, overly complicated, and hard to follow. The original had a tight, streamlined story with just enough extraneous detail without weighing the movie down

    well not really Persephone was stolen but in the underworld she ate some pomegranate seeds but not all of it. so she comes up for spring till the end of summer. then she goes back to the underworld from fall till the end of winter ( Demeter is a bitch and zues can't handle Hades power.) so boooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooommmmmmmmm

    They kept using "three layers of reality" as proof as to why there's a third layer of reality that wasn't shown in the movies (the real world) ...but that would be the fourth would it not? There's the Matrix, the machine world, and then Zion, so why would the real world be considered the third level of reality and not the fourth? You can't seriously count the machine world and the matrix as only one level of reality if you're counting Zion as a separate one, all three of them are simulations according to this theory so either all three are one level of reality or they are each their own

    8:05 - "...in binary, 01 has no useful meaning." Say what? 01 is incredibly useful. It can represent the numeral '1.' It can be a high plus a low input to a circuit. The zero may tell us that this combination represents positive 1, where 11 would be negative 1. With that number of bits (2), you have 4 valid configurations: 00, 01, 10, 11. Those four states could represent TONS of things. If you're not a computer scientist, I can understand why you may think that 01 is inherently meaningless. I assure you, it is anything but.
    Oh, and a null value is actually all zeros. And is also very useful.
