Rinehart: You have a problem with authority, Mr. Anderson. Cypher: We would have told you [Morpheus] to shove that red pill right up your ear!. As you can see, we've had our eye on you for some time now, Mr. Anderson. We meet again Mr. Anderson The great Morpheus; we meet at last. Did you know that the first Matrix was designed to be a perfect human world, where none . Yea, there was alot of foreshadowing in the first part of The Matrix. You know, get some R and R. What do you think, DeJour, should we take him with us? And during Neo's meeting with his boss, Mr Rhineheart (who looks suspiciously like Agent The time has come to make a choice, Mr. Anderson.
We are not here because we're free; we're here because we are not free.
There's no escaping reason, no denying purpose, because as we both know, without purpose, we would not exist. We're here because of you, Mr. We're here to take from you what you tried to take from us I am the Architect. I created the Matrix. I have been waiting for you. You have many questions and though the process has altered your consciousness, you remain irrevocably human.
Ergo, some of my answers you will understand, some of them you will not. Concordantly, while your first question may be the most pertinent, you may or may not realize, it is also the most irrelevant.
Agent Smith quotes Movie Quotes Database
Why am I here? Your life is the sum of a remainder of an unbalanced equation inherent to the programming of the Matrix. You are the eventuality of an anomaly, which despite my sincerest efforts I have been unable to eliminate from what is otherwise a harmony of mathematical precision.
While it remains a burden assiduously avoided, it is not unexpected, and thus not beyond a measure of control, which has led you, inexorably, here. You haven't answered my question. Interesting, that was quicker than the others.
The Matrix: Script
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. Five ones before me? There are only two possible explanations: As you are undoubtedly gathering, the anomaly is systemic, creating fluctuations in even the most simplistic equations. You can't control me! I'm going to smash you into fucking bits!
I'll fucking kill you! I can say whatever I want! You can't make me do that! You old, white, prick! The problem is choice. The first Matrix I designed was quite naturally perfect; it was a work of art, flawless, sublime. A triumph equaled only by its monumental failure. The inevitability of its doom is apparent to me now as a consequence of the imperfection inherent in every human being.
Thus I redesigned it, based on your history, to more accurately reflect the varying grotesqueries of your nature.

However, I was again frustrated by failure. I have since come to understand that the answer eluded me because it required a lesser mind, or perhaps a mind less bound by the parameters of perfection.
Thus the answer was stumbled upon by another: If I am the father of the Matrix, she would undoubtedly be its mother. While this answer functioned, it was obviously fundamentally flawed, thus creating the otherwise-contradictory systemic anomaly that if left unchecked might threaten the system itself.
Ergo, those that refused the program, while a minority, if unchecked would constitute an escalating probability of disaster. This is about Zion. You are here because Zion is about to be destroyed, its every living inhabitant terminated, its entire existence eradicated. Denial is the most predictable of all human responses. But, rest assured, this will be the sixth time we have destroyed it, and we have become exceedingly efficient at it.
The function of the One is now to return to the Source, allowing a temporary dissemination of the code you carry, reinserting the Prime program, after which you will be required to select from the Matrix 23 individuals - 16 female, 7 male - to rebuild Zion.
Failure to comply with this process will result in a cataclysmic system crash, killing everyone connected to the Matrix, which coupled with the extermination of Zion will ultimately result in the extinction of the entire human race. You won't let it happen. You need human beings to survive. There are levels of survival we are prepared to accept. However, the relevant issue is whether or not you are ready to accept the responsibility for the death of every human being in this world. It is interesting reading your reactions.
Your five predecessors were, by design, based on a similar predication, a contingent affirmation that was meant to create a profound attachment to the rest of your species for facilitating the function of the One.
Apropos, she entered the Matrix to save your life at the cost of her own. Which brings us, at last, to the moment of truth, wherein the fundamental flaw is ultimately expressed and the anomaly revealed as both beginning and end.
Ever notice any of the subtle little nudges into Mr Anderson in The Matrix?
There are two doors. The door to your right leads to the Source and the salvation of Zion. The door to your left leads back to the Matrix, to her, and to the end of your species.
As you adequately put, the problem is choice. But we already know what you are going to do, don't we? Already I can see the chain reaction.Why, mister Anderson?
The chemical precursors that signal the onset of an emotion designed specifically to overwhelm logic and reason. An emotion that is already blinding you from the simple and obvious truth: It is the quintessential human delusion, simultaneously the source of your greatest strength and your greatest weakness.
If I were you, I would hope that we don't meet again. Here he is at last: Neo, the One himself.
Agent Smith quotes
Trinity was told by the Oracle that the man she would fall in love with would become The One. For much of the film, Trinity deals with these feelings but is afraid of what they mean. So she hides them, denying Neo the context with which to make his choices. Beat after beat, Neo is confronted with a choice, and time after time his decision propels the plot forward, culminating in his emergence as The One.
After delivering a disc to some hackers, Neo notices a white rabbit tattoo on one of them. Here, he has a binary choice, either-or: His choice to go to the club characterizes Neo as a man who must know, whatever the cost. Neo gets a phone in the mail and Morpheus is on the line. Morpheus means to help Neo escape the Agents, and Neo chooses to go along. This time, we get a direct either-or statement from Morpheus: One is that scaffold.
The other is in their custody. You take a chance either way. I leave it to you. In the custody of Agent Smith, Neo is again offered a choice: Upon waking up in his home, Neo is offered a simple choice, this time by the hackers: Trinity waxes philosophical about Neo already knowing everything about that road, playing to his sense of curiosity. It works, Neo chooses to stay, and the monster machine is sucked out of his stomach. The moment of decision. Neo knows what is down that road, so he will choose to stay with them.
Then, the most iconic and obvious choice is placed before Neo: The visual storytelling is perfection: This is a crucial suggestion to the spectator — choices matter.
