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)?

Well, to figure that one out, we'd have to contemplate how human or subhuman the Architect is. Perhaps he is more human than not, and constructed the Matrix flawed because he knew of no way to perfect it any further.

Hmmm. I wonder what the Oracle's take on the first Matrix would be?

:)

Was it not the Oracle that brought forth the fact that humans are imperfect?

Yes, that is true. So then would the Architect be human if the first Matrix was created so flawed?

No, he was completely unhuman thus causing him not to realize that humans don't want perfection.
