i think neo have super powers because the one have to have a very strong mind. he needs it to do what he should. so he can do his superman-thing because of the strength of his mind. i guess in the matrix, you are as strong as your mind. and the one has the very strongest mind of all.

I actually agree with Ushgarak on this.

The Omega-"If there was only ONE, a unique person born into the Matrix whose sole purpose was to collect the anomaly, then what were the other potentials doing in the Oracles appartment?"

I dont think anyone besides the Architect, knew who the one was. The Only thing the Oracle knows is the Prophecy. And besides, even IF she did know who the Anomaly was, would that mean that she had NO use in consulting Morpheus or Trinity. They ALL had a Purpose. Heck without a Morpheus, there literally would be no Neo at full power. Or any hope.

I think its because he can see the code and hack into the programs of the matrix.Like when he flies he probably hacks into the program that controls gravity in the matrix.

cool You guys are forgetting one thing: The Matrix is all in Neo's mind.
Remember what Morph said: "The Matrix is a computer generated dream world.." The keyword here is DREAM. Neo's mind is so strong that it regards what the Matrix tells his brain as a dream. And in dreams there are no rules. Do a Google search for "hacking your wetware" - it's more common than you think. As for the anomaly, what it really means is that as more people are born in the Matrix over the years, the strength of mind/will necessary for resisting the "programming" increases. The anomaly is most common among the 1% of people in the who initally refuse the program..."Ergo, those that refused the program, while a minority, if unchecked, would constitute an escalating probability of disaster." This disaster that occurs when someone will actually reach the strength of mind necessary to...well DOS (Denial of Service) the whole Matrix. As for Neo's ability outside of the Matrix, ever hear of the phrase "as above so below"? It doesn't necessarily means there's a Matrix within a Matrix, but I'll leave you guys to figure it out.

No, Neos mind is IN the Matrix.
Morpheus uses the word dream-world, as a tool of explanation. Fitting, since Morpheus was the Greek god of Dreams. But Neo plugs in just like anyone else. He just has, as a boddhisatva, completely realised that the Matrix isn’t real. He sees the Matrix in code, and through the anomaly-powers he can reprogram it as he sees fit.

Omega you forget: "If a tree falls in the woods and there's no one around to hear it, does it make a sound?" The Matrix is in Neo's mind just as much as (if not more so) Neo's mind is in the Matrix. Neo realized this. That's why when we look through Neo's eyes at the end of M1 and parts of Reloaded, he sees code when he sees in the Matrix. (sidenote: if there are nested Matrices, then at the end of M2 he should have seen the "real" world as code, esp. when we see thru his eyes). Oh...the anagram for Neo also forms Noe the 1st 3 letters in the word Noesis, which is the highest form of thought - intuitive thought. I thought it was kinda cool.
Anyway, the connection is two-way and it exists within both "spheres"
of interaction - the mind and the Matrix - but Neo not the Matrix has control of the connection and the action is more within his mind now than in the Matrix, except that the "feedback" he gives to the Matrix would be screwy when Link on the outside and anyone inside "sees" what he's doing. The computer has to interpret the info sent back from Neo's mind...superpowers are the end result.

Seraph> That’s a loop-argument, like Neo has superpowers because he is Neo.
Freemind> the question is more, WHY he has the powers his has in the first place. NOT how he uses them.

Flipmode> No, not even the Architect would know who the One was, UNTIL the anomaly cdoe was picked up by someone (who happened to be Neo). And the prophecy is just another system of control. The Oracle knows way more than just that tidbit of human-rebellion-control.
She can predict certain events in the Matrix executive program, hence the title “The Oracle”.

Lucid0011> The Matrix is not being DOWN-LOADED into Neo’s mind.
His digital self in being UPLOADED to the Matrix program. Otherwise, what happened in his mind-version, would affect no one else.
And, hey, Neo is also the first free letters in Neon. A cool kind of light.
If The Matrix was in Neos Mind, he would be able to just wipe out every agent in the program by blinking his eyes. He’s not omnipotent.
