yes, he did touch the source, but the dissemination of the code he carried did NOT occur. if the temporary dissemination did occur, neo would have to pick 23 individuals from the existing matrix, after which the matrix would be reloaded and updating it to the latest version, the 7th if i am not mistaken. then all that has happened would be in nobody's memory, even the oracle because that places them back to square one. and lastly, if the afformentioned took place, we would see neo up on his feet at the end of revolutions because beacuse him and the 23 other people will have to rebuild zion...
just to reiterate, Neo could only choose to reset the Matrix while talking to the Architect, and he had to make the choice. since he didn't do that, no matter how many times he touched the source thereafter, he couldn't reset the matrix. Neo stopped the reset, through his choice, and then the matrix was saved by his choice. But this is not Matrix v.3.7...this is Matrix v3.6.a...or something like that...perhaps even v 4.0
Alpha i think that we are in agreement, what you call RSI i call consciousness.
Jedi, Neo does not reset the matrix, the Architect does. The One has to return to the source before he can do this however. Your theory of what matrix it is though is interesting, I don't agree with it but I respect your right to voice it.
I believe that The One is born with normal matrix code just like everyone else, he then upgrades it within himself when he becomes the One, it is this code that the Architect uses to reset and upgrade the matrix to a new version.
well, it seems we do agree on something, then, as Voltaire said it best, 'i do not agree with a word you say, but i defend to the death your right to say it'
...i do think it is Neo that resets the matrix, or rather, Neo would have reset it, if he had chosen to. I also do not believe he is born 'normal', but rather that he has the code his whole life, it just sits there, undeveloped, unused. i think this because the architect says that all 'ones' are based on a similar predication, meaning that they are 'created equal' so to speak, but that their experiences change who they become. they are all the 'Ones' because their code says they are the 'ones', but it is changed just like we are changed by our environment. It is not this changed code that is used to reset the Matrix, but the fact that the one is not in the matrix anymore that allows the defeat of the -1, smith, just as he was defeated in revolutions. then, the original code is placed back in neo, and he would choose 23 individuals.
Ok well lets just Say NEO is being keeped in the Matrix untill somthing else bad happens like Smith or somthing like that.
Theres no way Neo could ever have a chance againts fighting againts loads of smiths at once, Yes Maby in reloaded but in revolutions he couldnt even defete agent Smith, There was 100,00,00's of Smiths on that street and in the citys i dont think there is no way Neo could fight againts nothing like that.
SO incase somthing else does come Back and Neo is needed how will or can he fight againts that?
you have to understand that not every smith is gonna be as powerful as smith. the original smith is only as powerful as the one, that is why neo kinda let smith copy him because if they kept fighting, it will end up as a draw. plus, every other anomaly chose to save zion and the smith virus was never out of control in the previous five versions of the matrix. and there will be little chance that the smith virus will be out of control in the next (repaired) matrix because he is not needed to find the carrier of the anomaly code because there is no anomaly code.
My only question to everyone is what is the purpose of the little girl. She didn't have a purpose before because back at the train station her parents said they had no purpose now and are on there way to deletion. But there she was in the matrix at the end of M3 and the oracle asked her if she made the sky that way and she said yes. What does that mean? Any Thoughts?
I have mixed feelings about Neo's supposed demise. Part of me says he became soup for the other copper tops and that he ascended and merged with the Source. The idea of him staying a live seems to me like I'm rejecting reality because I don't want the Matrix to end.
The prophecy came true. Neo's arrival summoned the end of the system used to control humanity. Neo recieved what he asked for. Peace. ( I think I would've said, "Dude, I want Trinity back. ) The fact that Neo survived that large code shot through him seems unlikely. It also makes him more heroic and legendary. The past five merely sacrificed their power so humanity could rebuild Zion and continue the loop. The Ones came and went. Neo sacrificed himself so humans and machines could begin the path toward reunion with the other. Also, would Neo really want to live without Trinity? When a person looses their soulmate, they usually don't recover completely. When Deus Ex says, "It is done" I believe its merely saying "it's as you want it." Also, why would Neo be spoken to if he would just fall unconsicous before he even has the chance to register this? The shot of the Lotus Blossom is that Neo became enlightened by giving up everything for peace. It's just a shot of his divinity. The code has now fully become fully balanced and is slowly returning to the Source.
Then, the fact that in the Matrix Online, a player can't die because of a system the machines used does present a possiblity. The player is jacked out before any serious damage is inflicted. That may be what that white flare that remained after Neo/Smith exploded, or it could have been Neo's RSI being obilerated. The fact the Oracle says we may see him again says there will be a new one if the system collaspes back into this version. She didn't always know.
Whatever happened, I hope Neo soon finds his peace if he didn't already.
Sorry, that was stupid of me! I am trying to make at least some sense of the Matrix movies, and I don't understand anything verywell (as I just demonstrated).
In M2, did the architect say something like he has made five previous Matrix things and each time he has destroyed it and now he is becoming exceedingly efficient at it???????? (If I even quoted half right) what does that mean?? Why does he want to destroy it??? Does he want to???
To make a long story short, yes he wants that to happen, it is all a kind of control, since they can't stop the "one" from occuring, they have found ways to manipulate and predict what the "one" and the humans will do in order to keep them from breaking free of the matrix.
