(Ring) (Ring) Wake up, Theorist. I don’t know if you’re ready to see what I have to show you but unfortunately the two of us have very little time. They’re coming for you. And I don’t know what they’re going to do if they find you. I can help you but only if you do exactly as I say: Watch this video and perhaps you will have a chance. Good luck. (Hang up) (Beep) Hello internet! Welcome to FILM THEORY! I’m glad you decided to stick around because there is much we have to discuss. FILM THEORY When it hit theaters in 1999, The Matrix was unlike anything anyone had ever seen before. Well unless you keep up with any form of Cyber-Punk had ever read a philosophy textbook, were a fan of Japanese anime or kung fu films had ever watched Tron. Uh you get the idea. but hey that makes complete sense when you consider that the films creators, writers and directors The Wachowskis were absolutely massive fanatics of all of those things and wanted to add to those genres with the film that incorporated elements from all of them. And the world they created while accessible enough to be mimicked in hundreds of parodies long before poop emojis became a way to ironically say “I love you” or less ironically “I have to poop” has long been debated and reinterpreted by the same over analytical fanbase The Wachowskis themselves hail from and you know that where there’s over analysis to be had the theorists will follow so I dug through the awesome first movie, the not so awesome CGI of the second, and the philsophical ramblings of the whole series Only to discover that we have been completely wrong the whole time, that the hero of humanity named ‘The One’ he who is prophecised to bring about the downfall of the machines and reload the matrix, is not Neo! desptie his name being a clever anagram of one no.. put aside Keanu Reeves’ highly emotive face the one is in fact …….. “Me ..me..me” “me too” Agent Smith, The cold hearted, murderous, hater of humanity and the bad guy trying to stop Neo .. Is in fact the hero who sets in motion the destruction of the matrix and humanity’s freedom Let’s see how far this rabbit hole goes … Now I’m gonna assume you need a bit of a refresher on what the heck this trilogy is about beyond white dredlocks and Christ imagery so let me do a real quick recap for you first in the first movie we meet “Mr Anderson” (Bad Agent Smith impression) I can’t do it I can’t do the voice In the first movie we meet Thomas Anderson a Hacker Codenamed ‘Neo’ who is disillusioned with his job, his life, and reality itself until mysterious messages lead him to Morpheus who totally blows his mind when he tells him that the world as he knows it, is a computer simulation and humanity is enslaved by machines, who use this digital reality, or ‘The Matrix’ to keep humanity submissive whilst they harvest their body heat for energy “Whoa” Turns out Neo is the subject of a holy prophecy he is ‘The One’ humanity’s saviour who has the ability to trancend the laws of this digital reality in such an advanced way that he can do Amazing Epic ‘Not-at-all-ripped-off-from-Dragon-Ball-Zesque things All hail the coming of ‘The One’ and the destruction of the matrix .. right? Well… As ‘The Architect’ explains in the second movie in a monologue that’s gone down in history as one of the single most confusing things ever said by an actor in a major blockbuster ever.. Neo’s ‘special status’ is all part of the machines master plan y’see another name of the one is the prime program He’s the result of an imperfect system you know how when you divide numbers together you sometimes get a remainder when they don’t divide in perfectly ‘The One’ is basically all those remainders glommed together into a big number ball and as long as he exists the matrix will remain imperfect and gradually decend into chaos until it crashes and desroys all of humanity including it’s last stronghold the sweaty dubstep-fueled-rave-cave of Zion [Air Horn] Long story short Humanity will be extinct to prevent this ‘The One’s code needs to enter the source which allows the matrix to reload and everything to become perfect and stable eventually Neo goes to the source jacks in fights Agent Smith an AI program tasked with keeping order in the system loses or wins? and since Neo is plugged into the source over at machine city the anomly goes bye-bye and the Matrix is able to finally be reloaded Bringing peace to the struggle between man and machine with blind-jesus Neo being carried off into the light The End! Clear as mud But what’s easy to lose amidst all the black trenchcoats and bullet time effects are the details! for instance let’s look at the aforementioned prophecy Quote … when the matrix was [first] built there was a man born inside that had the ability to change what he wanted, to remake the matrix as he saw fit. It was this man who freed the first of us and taught us the truth. When he died the oracle prophesied his return and envisioned that his coming would hail the destruction of the matrix and the war, bring freedom to our people :End Quote so if neo is truly the one he needs to have been born in the matrix is able to change it and ultimately destroys it to set humans free Let’s start with the first criteria Born Inside the Matrix Uhhh …… NO Neo is not born inside of the matrix he was born in one of those gross harvest pods by the machines he even has the extra electrical outlets on his body to prove it which are so useful during the holiday season to be fair neo was reborn inside the matrix after
being killed by agent smith at the end of the first film but keep in mind that
the Oracles prophecy also specifies quote when the matrix was first built
and as we’re told in the film this is the sixth version of the matrix the
matrix is older than you know I prefer counting from the emergence of one
integral anomaly to the emergence of the next in which case this is the sixth
version mr. Anderson wasn’t around way back then
you know who was though Agent Smith Smith has been there since
the beginning “did you know that the first matrix was
designed to be a perfect human world”… “where none suffered, where everyone would be happy”… “it was a disaster!” he speaks about it in
a way that implies that he was there but not only that he goes so far as to call
the Oracle ‘mom’ in the third movie “you would know mom” so despite him being just a computer
program the idea of birth still applies to look at it a different
way at the end of the first matrix neo jumps into Agent Smith destroying him
from within but that moment fundamentally changes Smith he’s reborn
in the second movie as a rogue virus as he explains to Neo “because of you I’m no longer an agent of this system”… “because of you I’ve changed”… “I’m unplugged… a new man…” which just goes to
show one other way that Smith was born inside of the matrix ok but let’s move on the second part of
the prophecy says the one will be able to change the matrix to remake it as he
sees fit although Neo shows some real promise at the end of the first movie with his jumping inside Smith fatality that’s pretty much the end of his
endeavor to do any kind of next-level hacking neo doesn’t actually change
anything throughout the sequel’s sure he can do some kung fu moves and fly but
that’s about it when it comes to changing the fabric of
the matrix the way it behaves Smith shows far more power I mean check out how the matrix looks by
the end of the series when Smith is at the height of his power it’s unrecognizable and very clearly the
one who made those changes was Smith in his own words “you like what I’ve done with the place?” but MatPat you might be saying don’t you
know that Smith is only special because neo is special with neo jumped inside of
him at the end of the first movie he copy part of himself onto Smith
interesting theoretical theorists so you’re suggesting that neo causes
Smith’s exceptional powers but not so fast the quality that determines if someone
is truly the one is based on the ability to repel against the machines like
Morpheus says yet their strength and their speed are still based in a world
that is built on rules make sense machines are just a series of zeros and
ones so of course they’re bound by the rules of their programming for wait then how do you explain this seed in the
first matrix myth takes out his earpiece while interrogating Morpheus and
explains his desire to escape the matrix I must get out of here I must get free and with the other
agents walk in and see him without his earpiece and they scold in smith is a
program meant to ensure the security of the matrix that earpieces his direct
line with the system and here it appears as though he’s going rogue not only does the fact that Smith is
able to go against the rules and take out his earpiece suggest his heightened
ability to repel but everything he says in the scene is oddly human talking
about smelling and tasting humanity and being disgusted by them it’s the smell I could taste your stink long before he takes on
neo Smith is working against his programming Smith not neo is the anomaly
in the system and now for the final tenant of the prophecy that he would
bring destruction to the matrix and bring freedom to the people and end the
war ok so although the saga ends with the
matrix still intact it gets pretty banged up during the Smith neo final
battle and in reloading one could say that it was destroyed and look who says
that he’s actually going to destroy the matrix you guessed it Smith and the only reason
that the war between man and machine zens is because Smith is so darn good at
tearing up the fabric of the matrix that the machines can’t control them anymore this precarious position Smith puts the
machines in is what gives me 0 the bargaining power to strike up a deal
with babyface over here that allows the humans who want to stay in the matrix
day and the EDM fans who want to leave and head to the concert in Zion go over
that way and get all sweaty do might be the one making the deal but
without Smith’s uncontrollable power the machines would need to end the war in
the first place but here’s the detail that seals the
deal the matrix will reload when the remainder code of the one enters the
source Smith openly says that he’s avoiding
returning to the source after merging with neo in the first movie in his own
words he’s been compelled to resist the call afterward I knew the rules i
understood what I was supposed to I didn’t I couldn’t compelled to stay
compelled to disobey but for that final battle neo uploads
himself into the matrix from machine city at the end of the battle Smith
victorious assimilates neo into a final Smith clone but then this breaks him up
and all the Smiths blow up for some unexplained reason this always confused
me why do Smith lose it’s really unclear
and it feels like a cheap ending for such an awesome villain until you
consider what’s happened Smith infects neo who is jacked into the matrix from
machine city AKA the location of the source when Smith assimilates him his
code is getting jacked directly into that source as the prophecy of the
architect of said the prime program in this instance has been reinserted look
at how Neos body and the wires connected to respond in the moment of his
assimilation in that moment through Neos assimilated body Smith’s anomalous code is reunited to
the source and the matrix is finally able to reload let me make it clear he is the one but
you the unwitting one he’s the savior of
humanity without even intending it or wanting it for that matter but that all
leaves us with one final question and it’s a simple one why does everyone call me old one if
he’s not the one who needs to watch the one the one the one who sure Morpheus in
the dirty sweatshirt gang may just be mistaken but what about the architect or
the Oracle these are two of the most powerful
programs in the system and they should probably know right well one of them does it is rambling
speech the architect says it was the Oracle who
created the one not only does this strengthen the whole
mom argument with agent smith from earlier but it also shows that she’s the
only person who truly knows the one’s true nature the ones true identity I’m not the one sorry kid and what did she do with that
knowledge she chooses to lie to everyone else about it in the final lines of the
franchise the architect and oracle meet in the reloaded matrix with the
architect saying you can be a very dangerous game what’s he talking about what is this
dangerous game well it’s a reference to the lie she
told everyone that the one was neo when she knew it was Smith why would she do this she says in these
final moments that she wanted change but what does that mean well it was the only way that she could
get peace had the machines known it was Smith all along they would have
assimilated him into the system earlier in the war between humans and machines
would have continued but by misleading everyone into thinking it was neo it
allowed Smith to threaten the fabric of the matrix to the point where the
machines had to make a deal of peace with me Oh creating an elaborate live
was the only way to truly change the system the dangerous game was allowing a
rogue program like Smith to get as powerful as he did boy did she do a good job of covering up
the truth since it fold all of us to / for a decade Agent Smith that rainbow over there for

    I think a big clue smith is the one in the lining of his suit in the first film. In later films Neo/Smith was shown in gold code, as
    Opposed to the regular green code everything/everyone else is. Neo likely was only shown in gold code as part of smiths had imprinted on him.

    In the first film, Smith has a gold lining to his suit, something as far as im aware no other agent have.
    Could his having this gold lining, an anomoly in itself compared to the other agents, be a clue that Smith is actually the one?

    In Reloded when Smith meets Neo, Smith states after he was destroyed, he knew what he had to do, he knew the rules, but felt compelled to stay. Could this of been when his code was supposed to return to the source? The architect stated this had happened previously without issue, so by staying, the matrix began to unfold in ways it hadn't previously.

    Other points this theory makes are really strong, such as being born in the matrix, which a program would be. After all, Mr Anderson is still, only human….

    Merovingian says " your predecessors had much more respect than you" to Neo in Matrix Reloaded. Why would he do that if Smith was the one? Why would the architect need to speak to Neo as if he was the one when he had no need of doing it? But cool theory..

    I believe smith was the first one created to save the matrix but he became bad so they further looked to find another a person”neo” that they could program and make believe that he is the one so they can defeat smith which was suppose to be the one thats why smith was so powerful n was easily brought back to life bc I believe he was meant to be the one originally I also believe this is why Morpheus knows so much about neo bc he did his research before choosing “neo” to defeat smith and its very ironic that they choose to call him “neo” which is one if u unscramble It idk it’s just my theory I know I’m wrong 🤣🤣😭 and also why is it so hard for everyone to believe neo is the one until he literally shows them his skills that was programmed by Morpheus it’s almost like neo is a pawn in Morpheus game the whole time making everyone believe neos the one by showing them all the skills he programmed into his mind so they could believe neos the one but the whole time Morpheus knew smith was the one and he needed to be defeated so he played everyone into believing neo was the one even neo cus Morpheus believed if neo believed he was the one n if he was strong enough with enough training from Morpheus he could possibly defeat smith …..again like I said before I know I’m wrong lol

    bro u stupid. ok i take that back or leave it just remember all im saying is iam stupid…. we all one. one means all is one. neo and smith are mirrors. life is a mirror. neo and smith are the same they are one. every human interaction is a mirror. when you stand in front of me we are one. so when those two realised they are one and became one. when they merged. when they melt. love was created. and life started a new cycle out of that union. everyone needs a mirror. smith needed one. thats why neo was created to face him. to match him. so they can dissolve. its yin yang. they are both the one. every one is the one also morpheus the oracle the keymaker everyone is a piece to the puzzle. its all about placement position and consciousness. when every piece realises itself we wake up. neo had to wake up. he was the missing piece all others were ready. we all want to get out of the matrix and break free.

    Why does Smith loose ?! Easy. It is called annihilation. The roque compell and the force to of Smith got released due to Neos missing code parts (which hapenned in Part 1). Since then both are building up a tensions arc over the whole Matrix. With one difference, Smith does know better what he is up to as Neo. Neo – and this was the whole 3 parts of the movies – was looking for another solution than the solution he recognizes at the 'spoon scene'. Neo has to die because it results in the clarification of the code anomalies, as you might get a number +5 and add -5. There comes out 0. Both are 'destroyed'. Although according to the monoloque of the architect it is more like cancel terms of an equation. Actually the monoloque isn't that complex and understandable with average education I'd say.

    The concept follows the order of symmetry, like in classical physics. With the difference that the tensions arcs are mostly the concistency of energy. What you 've might lerned in middle school in physics, the energy conservation rate.
    The film(s) the Matrix has transported that (symmetry) rate from the energy layer to the information layer of the perception that makes the film actually intresting. And remembers me on Burkhard Heim or Rupert Sheldrake. (Scientists). If information is consistent, then the actual and everywhere existent metaphysics works. The Matrix 1-3 was merely a proof of concept of that, an educating and really good executed one though. 🙂

    Proof of symmetry?
    You already got one: NEO <-> ONE
    What about TEMET NOSCE?

    Gematria of it is: 119
    119 also means: 'all seeing eye' which describes the oracle, but also the (caution symmetry!) negative form which means totally blind which Neo is! (2nd Proof, Neo got blindfolded close to the actual end in the 3rd film).
    The reverse ordinal of the 119 Gematria means: Suicide. What Neo actually has to do and did in the End.
    Well we've got the positive and the negative, the all seeing and the totally blindfoldet. Smith is standing in between! Therefore he (Smith) is prooven the ONE and the Semidote to Neo. The Antidote was the Oracle!
    Architect + Neo – One Side (blindfold)
    Oracle + Morpheus – other side (seeing eye)
    Smith – NONE.

    Best regards,

    Note: There were 5 versions of the "One" before Neo, but pretty much every single time, the encounter with the Architect resulted in 2 options for the "one". Reset the Matrix, and save Zion, or just say, "No" and everybody is killed. Of course, the previous five chose the first, but Neo of course, chose the latter. Either way, it was a win, win for the Machines in both scenarios. This is not my idea, it comes from this: https://www.looper.com/153177/the-entire-matrix-timeline-explained/

    The Oracle said that Smith was a result of the equation trying to balance itself out. If x=x, and you add ONE to one side, then you must add ONE to other, balancing the equation. Both Neo and Smith are ONEs from either side of the equation.

    Who gives birth to people connected to Matrix??? If they are grown by machines, it means they are either a cyborg or arent humans at all.

    This is a pretty good theory MatPat, but here are some details you missed. When Neo asks who Agent Smith is, she responds saying. "He's you. The negative to your positive, an attempt of the Equation to balance itself out." If someone where to make an error to an equation, they would add a new variable to bring the desired outcome. If there was no anomaly in the Matrix, Agent Smith would be just another agent. Also take a look at how new humans are made when other humans die in the Crop Fields, when one dies it is physically remade and feeds from dead humans. While the body is made in the real world, the mind and "soul" is made in the Matrix. Here's another thing, if Neo where to destroy the Matrix right when he got his powers what would happen to the people inside? For all we know, they could die in an instant. The goal of the rebels is to both stop the machines and free the living humans inside. All Neo would accomplish is starting the system over again. What needs to happen is for programs to malfunction and go rogue often enough for "The One" to help the machines to destroy the Matrix as we know it. Who does Agent Smith say not only frees him but also enable him to break down the Matrix? It was Neo. Who does Agent Smith need to assimilate in order to be connected to the Source? It was Neo. So long story short, while Neo doesn't change the Matrix directly he infects a powerful security program to cause a chain reaction. Here is one last question for you MatPat that should really make you rethink your theory. When Agent Smith absorbs the Oracle herself, he knows everything she knows. He would know that she was lying and he's the One. Why doesn't he change things back to a more hidden world where he rules if he knows he will be destroyed when he is connected to the Source?

    This breaks the theory completely: In the first 5 cycles, the Ones did fulfill their roles in reinserting their code in the source to reload the Matrix. When Neo reached the Architect, the Architect was fully expecting him to arrive for that purpose and talked about his predecessors being very similar to him (except for the love aspect). He was by no means expecting Smith or an agent to show up, especially an old program the he himself designed. The Oracle also identifies the One as Neo via the things she tell others (Trinity would fall in love with him, Niobe would have to help him, etc.)

    if neo isn't the one then why can't agent smith control the matrix like neo. and if you wanna get technical agent smith wasn't born in the matrix he was downloaded to it. the prophecy says a man was born in the matrix but smith is not a man he may be a male but he not a man he's a program

    Being "born in the matrix" is how they use to describe those that are born and immediately jacked into the matrix to spend their lives, unless they are released vs being born normally in the real world and never been in the matrix in the first place.

    Yes, Agent Smith does call the Oracle "mom" because he is a part of The Matrix, of which she is considered the mother of.

    Agent Smith is more along the lines of the destabilization of the system when anomalies happen when humans wake up. Broken coding as it were, turned viral. "The One" is fancy terminology given to manipulate a glorified "delivery boy" into fixing the problem as the system wants.

    The Matrix movies were great for what they were and try to be deep, but they also had a lot of bullshittery in them as well, be it for plot or plot holes.

    1.) The prophecy says a MAN born inside. Anderson is a program, not a man
    2.) They imply multiple times that Neo can do more than he actually does. When he grabbed the bullet from Trinity, that was pretty clear evidence he can change the fabric of the Matrix
    3.) Smiths goal was to essentially destroy everything, including people. At no point did he accidentally or on purpose free anyone.

    I appreciate dissection of plots esp the whacked out plot of the matrix. but this one is eh for me. All the weird similarities (if you want to call them that) were because Neo was supposed to be the antichrist. the battle was judgement day.

    Im thinking that often people consider differentiation (one) to be the solution to the conflict of human/ machine (either human or machine would have to win) in my mind it is the synthesis between neo/smith/machine creating a new form, no longer divided. It is the same with war in my oppinion, it is depicting a synthesis but through a differentiated view.
