I think the people are the power source. Not the Matrix. The Matrix keeps people "asleep", as their body produce energy and make them unaware that they are living in a virtual reality.--Ð٨ŘŦΗ ۍΆUŘΏŅ 10:25, 24 August 2006 (UTC)

Morpheus explained to Neo in movie 1 that, "combined with a form of fusion," the Machines generated all the power they needed from humans in the power plant. So, yes, you are correct. While the Wachowski brothers didn't elaborate more for fear of making the plot too complex, the humans are also part of the Matrix itself as their brains are used to form a super-complex computing cluster that, in whole or in part, forms the virtual reality.

Every reference to the word "Matrix" in reference to the films and/or games needs to have the word "The" in front of it. -o.r- 18:27, 18 September 2006 (UTC)

Question, could the ones who know what Matrix was control things inside it? telekinises, stop a sword with you hand, fly etc. --Kraftword 17:21, December 24, 2009 (UTC)

Why was a flesh eating virus mentioned? Is this because of that scene in Second Renaissance? I was under the assumption that they were all in the hospital beds because of the grievous injuries.SCRulerPK 17:11, October 19, 2010 (UTC)
