A has troubles because it doesn't allow for the series to be concluded. Nomatter what you do, you never know if you really "escaped" the Matrix. That might be alright, but I think that'd be something less of a fulfilling ending.Originally posted by Delance
a) reality is actually a matrix (be that another matrix, the same matrix, or whatever)
b) he as actual superpowers - somehow part of the code is inside him and he can command the machines outside the matrix in the "real" world
I agree, but that is what Matrix Reloaded was all about. It's a loophole. The Prophecy is a planned event so they can control the imperfection of the Matrix. Zion is a security system that works for the machines. It's like the 1984 novel, where the leader of the rebels works for the government. Some of the leaders of the council may or may be aware of this. The council is very concerned that Neo finds his way to complete the prophecy, perhaps because it’s the only way he can remake Zion. Or maybe they don't know anything, either way Zion could be a fail safe like the architect implied.Originally posted by ChrisReid

Correct. However, his experience with the Matrix is about bending and breaking the rules of a computer simultion. That cannot work on reality. The best hacker can't hack the "gravity" system and fly on the real world. You can't turn the real world clipping off and walk throught walls.B could work on a few levels. Either his experience within the Matrix gave him powers.. Or perhaps his innate powers are why he is The One inside the Matrix after all.
If you listen to Links conversation with his wife, Zee (Tank's sister), she says that she has lost two brothers already to that ship (half a polo to the first person to correctly spell it =D), we know (fact) that Dozer (sp?) died because of Sypher, so it's possible that Tank also died later from his injuries...Originally posted by jammyo2k
