Again, they're hairy from the long cold years, and have endurance reserved for creatures that had to go days without food or water. These are the colonists of other worlds, come back at relativistic speeds to find the Earth a strangely twisted place. The fun may finally be over for Parisian boors. The story never really clarifies how one AI applience machine suddenly gain awareness or how suddendly the other machines also gains instantaneous awareness.
Then, the ones left over could just live in peace. So the women would all end up in the real world and the Matrix would be all dudes and machines pretending to be chicks? So its just the current internet? Its even worse than we imagined. Humans fucking started it! Well, humanity getting scared and trying to 'shut down' AI seems to be quite realistic. Them being to stupid to handle it peacefully sounds like modern politics as well.
But that is the problem in the animatirix story. One buttler AI robot design to sereve humans decides to kill its master out of nowere. The story never really clarifies how one AI applience machine suddenly gain awareness or how suddendly the other machines also gains instantaneous awareness. I just think the writters could have build up the plot better by showing how AIs became slowy self aware over a period of time.
When Morpheus was being tortured, Agent Smith did comment on how the matrix was originally "a dream world utopia, but humans rejected it, could not believe it, so we made it look like it was at the peak of civilization". Yeah, how is it that everyone else ITT has forgotten this. It was a disaster.
No one would accept the program. Entire crops were lost.
Some believed we lacked the programming language to describe your perfect world. But I believe that, as a species, human beings define their reality through suffering and misery. The perfect world was a dream that your primitive cerebrum kept trying to wake up from. Which is why the Matrix was redesigned to this: I love the Agent Smith monologues. I'll now attempt to type this one verbatim, from memory. Have you ever just sat and stared at it? Marveled at its beauty, its genius? Billions of people just living out their lives.
Did you know that the first Matrix was designed to be a perfect world? Where none suffered, where everyone would be happy. Some believed that we lacked the programming language to describe your 'perfect world,' but I believe that, as a species, humans define their reality through misery and suffering. That the perfect world was just a dream that your primitive cerebrum kept trying to wake up from. Thus, the Matrix was redesigned to this: And I say, "your" civilization because as soon as we started thinking for you, it really became our civilization, and that of course is what this is all about.
Look out that window. Like the dinosaur, you've had your time.
The future is our world, Morpheus. The future is our time. That's probably because they tried to trick them into it. If you show me he'll hole or offer me virtual utopia, I'll willingly choose utopia. The other day, I asked my sister if she wanted to watch a documentary with me about body language.
It was thought that audiences wouldn't have enough brain power to process this, so it was simplified to something that makes no physical sense. That said, it explains why people, especially people destined for greatness want to flee and why Morpheus refers to the condition of living in the Matrix as mental imprisonment. You are constantly, unconsciously, having very tedious and mindnumbing work demanded of you, taxing on your creativity, and even your very sense of joy, there like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad. Yah, originally the Matrix was sort of like the teleporters in Dan Simmons' Hyperion series.
So there are humans and then these amazing and mysterious AIs. There is instantaneous communication across the galaxy, and people can almost instantly teleport from any place to any other place leading to cool stuff like the spare bathroom in your home being on another planet.
For the instant you're in-between teleporter pads, your brain is co-opted by the AIs to run calculations--so, the mass of humanity in all its trillions teleporting around provides the infrastructure for the AIs to run themselves. I did not know that While the people as batteries has always been a big science plot hole, I'm not sure the other explanation is much better, or even much more realistic in the science scenes.
The reasoning they went with DID give us that visually striking moment when Morpheus holds up the battery, and the pretty detailed vision of the Real World being a hell scape with the sun blotted out makes it seem to me that this change wasn't made solely because "audiences won't get it.
Regardless, I definitely find this alternate motivation endlessly more intriguing.
Idk what "calculations for fusion power" means, but I feel like the networking of human brains to be used as a super computer is pretty fucking cool. Also it's kind of crazy that the idea networked brains and using neural interfaces for better computing is still fringe science with no hard data to say what is and is not plausible or what kind of effect it would have on our consciousness , while even in when The Matrix came out it was pretty simple math to determine that farms of human bodies would be a pretty shitty power supply.
