Well, seeing as discussion has hit a minor standstill here, I'm going to try and offer some sort of a thought provoking question (or at least I hope). A few posts back, a question of the role of the Merovingian was posed. I responded and mentioned briefly the "first Matrix" that the Architect refers to in "Matrix Revolutions" as being "virtually perfect...destroyed by choice". This to me seems to be redolent of Eden, destroyed by Eve's choice to take the apple in defiance of God or simply in a quest for the truth, which is what the revolutionaries of the Matrix mean to do. What do you all think of the first Matrix? Could it actually be what we regard as Eden (figuratively speaking, of course)?

It is possible that the Architect constructed the first Matrix as a prospective Eden. This first Matrix had a flaw, in that its inhabitants (read: Adam and Eve) were implanted with the desire for the Answer to the Question, hence why the first Matrix/Eden had to fall.

That perspective, however, would lead to the assumption that the destruction of the preceding Matrices would be based on that flaw, and not on the Architect's desire to destroy it himself. Any thoughts regarding this?

Blessings,
Ambrosa
