The Architect
Appearences:
Reloaded
James Anderson (d. 1739), a Scottish Presbyterian minister, wrote the <Book of Constitutions> in which he contrived the “traditional,” albeit spurious, history of Freemasonry. Masons hold that God, “the Great Architect,” founded Freemasonry, and that it has as patrons Adam and the Patriarchs. Even Jesus is listed as “the Grand Master” of the Christian Church. They credit themselves with the building of Noah’s ark, the Tower of Babel, the pyramids and Solomon’s Temple. In all, Freemasonry borrows liberally from the history and traditions of cultic groups such as Druids, Mithars, Egyptian priesthood, Rosicrucians and others to weave its own history.

Ash

A Detective Story
Ash is “White Pawn” in a hacker chat room.user MistaFreeze in the forum:
Pawns in chess are the least versatile pieces (only moving 2 slots up on the first move, 1 slot thereafter, can only attack diagonally and can’t move backwards). They’re also sacrificed often for a greater strategy within the game…also think of the double meaning (a pawn in a bigger plot, etc).

What happens when a pawn, as difficult as this is to achieve in a game, makes its way to the other side of the board? It becomes a Queen, the most powerful piece that can move everywhere unrestricted.

Now before all of you say this is a reach or that I’m grabbing onto things that aren’t there, examine this:

Ash enters the room. Where is he standing?
Where a pawn would be.

Where is the crazy detective kneeling?
On a square in the second to last row (which makes a pawn a Queen).

Which direction is he facing?

Pawns can only move in one direction…he came from Ash’s location (i’m talking chessboard, figuratively speaking).

user MistaFreeze in the forums:
B166ER trial–someone pointed out that this looks like “Bigger”. A character from the book Native Son is named Bigger Thomas, who is put on trial for accidentally killing the white daughter of the family through self preservation. These are almost exactly the same as the circumstances involving B166ER’s trial.Also, when the trial of B166ER is first playing, you can hear the defense attorney for the robot say, “that intended…citizens, in the constitution…for which that instrument (constitution) provides for, and secures to the citizens of the United States, on the contrary…they were (Blacks), at that time, considered a subordinate and inferior class of human beings that were subjigated…”

The attorney is obviously making a comparison to the legal status of African Americans in the United States (considered 2/3 of a human being, no rights under constitution despite “justice and liberty for all”, etc, etc) during slavery, and that it’s a direct reference to the Dread Scott case, in which the Supreme Justices ruled that blacks were inferior and subhuman in comparison to whites.

The prosecution argued for an owner’s right to destroy property, which also parallels how the government viewed Afro-Americans in relation to their masters during that era (ie, as property).

“B166ER” looks like “BIGGER”:
Bigger was the name of a black character in contreversial, 1940′s book, “Native Son.” In the book Bigger Thomas is working for a white family (like a robot would for a human one), and accidently kills the white daughter through self preservation like B166ER. Just like in 2nd R, there is debate over a trial for the black Bigger.

In the novel, Native Son by Richard A. Wright, an African-American is put on trial for killing a white woman, and his lawyer is forced to argue in court for the humanity of his client. Eventually the case is lost and Bigger is sentenced to death.

Ballard

Enter the Matrix
Located in the northwest section of Seattle, Ballard is by many regarded as a city within a city. It is dominated by its proximity to the water which touches not only the many miles of shoreline but also its economy, culture and recreation. Fishing and fishing ships, lumber and sawmills were for many years the trademarks of Ballard but recent years have seen more of a diversification in industry.The community was named for Captain William Ballard who acquired land along the northern shore of Salmon Bay in 1887.

Industrialization

The newly platted land quickly attracted settlers and industries needing ready access to Puget Sound. Within a short time the area was dotted with sawmills. The rapid growth was accelerated in 1890, when a rail link was completed with Seattle. By the end of the 90s an established town had been created housing the world’s largest shingle industry with fishing and boat building as other major sources of revenue. By the turn of the century, Ballard was the largest area of employment north of San Francisco.
The rapid growth brought problems and the lack of a fresh water supply proved a major obstacle. To alleviate some of the problems Ballard was annexed to Seattle in 1907. At that time it was said that the town had eighteen churches, seventeen shingle mills, three banks, three saw mills, three iron foundries, three shipyards and about 300 wholesale and retail merchants. In addition there were several houses of ill repute and innumerable bars, many of which were located on Ballard Avenue in a four block area.

Although opposed to the rationalism of Kant and the German Enlightenment of Herder and Lessing, he was highly esteemed by the leading thinkers of his day. He was an advocate of religious immediacy, stressing the rights of the individual personality and the importance of inner religious experience. For Hamann, faith was the faculty of perceiving God’s acts in history and His works in nature. Because of the aphoristic and occasional nature of his writings, he was called “The Magus of the North.” His works, chief of which are Sokratische Denkwürdigkeiten (1759), Aesthetica in nuce (1761), and Golgatha und Scheblimini (1784), greatly influenced Søren Kierkegaard.

This one deems further exploration. This best I can come up with thus far….”The first king of the Franks is usually said to be Merovech, though unity of the entire tribe was only achieved by his grandson Clovis in the late 5th century. In 743 the Merovingian dynasty was replaced by that of the Carolingians, named for Charles Martel the father of Pepin the Short and grandfather of Charlemagne. Charlemagne’s son was Louis the Pious, and after his death the vast kingdom of the Franks was divided amongst his children. The western portion, eventually called the Kingdom of France, went to Charles the Bald.
As the Carolingian dynasty waned, France was ruled by the Counts of Paris starting with Odo in 888. His line led to Hugh Capet, who began the Capetian dynasty late in the 10th century. After the Capetian family became extinct the throne was taken over by the Valois family, though claims by the English king Edward III led to the Hundred Years War in 1339. In 1589 the Valois dynasty was succeeded by the Bourbon kings, who ruled until being forcefully removed by the French Revolution, though they were later reinstated for a time.

France had two emperors in the 19th century: Napoleon and later his nephew Napoleon III. ”

Members of the Merovingian dynasty were rumored to be descendants of Jesus. Another rumor wa that Merovech was said to be the son of two fathers, details are entailed below…

“Merovech, is said to be descended from a) a human father, and b) a sea monster or ‘a neptunian quinotaur’ that seduced his mother while she was bathing. Legendary symbols aside, we have mentioned Oannes, Dagon, EnKi / EA being associated with the sea, with water, with Pisces. ”

Anagram of “one.” Means “new.” Becomes a new person after being unplugged. He is also the new incarnation of another. He marks a new life is coming for the humans. He is “born again” via the symbolism of his removal from the pod/womb.


In reference to Jesus:
Choi: “Hallelujah. You’re my savior, man. My own personal Jesus Christ.” Neo dies, and returns to life. He is the second coming, sent to save the people.


<<In the gospels, two days after Jesus died, he resurrected and roamed the lands for 40 days breaking bread, appearing to people to tell them about the truth of salvation, showing them the miracle of life, and on the 40th day, he ressurected, soul AND body up into heaven. In the Matrix, 2 minutes after Neo dies, he ressurects, and now roams the matrix and he is going to show the people of the land the truth about their lives and how it isn’t the end, it’s just the beginning. At the very end of the movie, Neo flies UP into the sky, which seems very similar to Jesus’ rising up into the sky and leaving the earth physically as well as his soul.>>
<<After invading the Agent’s body and causing it to explode, Neo is represented as a BRIGHT WHITE light.>>


The Matrix was released on Easter weekend (holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus.)


I would just like to mention that Neo was not dead for 3 min. If you time his death from the moment that Agent Brown takes his pulse to the moment that Neo takes his first breath the time you get is 72 sec. (72sec > 72hrs > 3 days). ;) - Agent Barnes


The significance of Neo needing to discover his true self is not only related to Eastern Monism. At many points in the Bible people are given new names – Abram becomes Abraham, Sarah becomes Sarai, Jacob becomes Israel, Saul becomes Paul. Even Jesus heads out into the wilderness to find himself, though his name remains the same.
Perhaps another bit of symbolism is Neo’s awakening from the Matrix, when he rises out of the goo tub. A Christian’s water baptism is a symbol of the death of the old life and the birth into another as a new creation in Christ. Neo rises out of the liquid into his new life. -Steve Mattos


In reference to Noah:
The Architect gives the One a chance to choose 7 males and 16 females to rebuild Zion:
Genesis 7:16: The animals going in were male and female of every living thing, as God had commanded Noah. Then the LORD shut him in.

The story of Noah actually begins with Genesis, Chapter 6, verse 8:

8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.

9 These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.

10 And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.

12 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.

13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

14 Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch.

15 And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.

16 A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it.

17 And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die.

18 But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons’ wives with thee.

19 And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female.

20 Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive.

21 And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them.

user Chimaera in the forums:
Interesting thought, but the thing that stuck me was that the 10th incarnation of Vishnu is the sixth fully human incarnation (just like Neo is the sixth incarnation of the one).

the first four incarnations were a fish, a tortoise, a boar, and a half lion/ half huma (See Rama-Kandra)

“This incarnation is yet to come and will mark the end of all evil in the world. In the Kalki Avatar, Lord Vishnu will incarnate himself as Kalki, the machine-man, who will come riding his white horse and with his blazing sword in his hands. This is supposed to be a future avatar of Lord Vishnu. At the end of Kali Yuga (present eon) he will punish all evil doers in this world, destroy this world supposedly and recreate a golden age again.”

Niobe
Appearences:

Enter the Matrix
The tragic tale of the legendary character Niobe is one of the most memorable in Greek mythology. For Niobe’s story features a striking example of the consequences of hubris (defined as arrogance or excessive pride), and for this reason, it was a popular myth in ancient literature, poetry, and art.The legend of Niobe appears in one of our oldest and best sources for Greek myth – the Iliad of Homer. In this epic, Niobe is described as a woman who compares herself to a goddess. She has the audacity to boast that she herself has given birth to twelve children (six boys and six girls), while the goddess Leto only bore two (the god Apollo and the goddess Artemis). And of course, this arrogant claim does not go unheard in Olympus.The goddess Leto is, understandably, offended by Niobe’s bragging. So Leto sends her two children – the aforementioned Apollo and Artemis – to punish the foolish woman. This scene of divine retribution is beautifully depicted in the Iliad:

“Apollo, making his silver longbow whip and sing,
shot the lads down, and Artemis, with raining
arrows killed the daughters – all this after
Niobe had compared herself with Leto,
the smooth-cheeked goddess.”

Niobe was devastated when her children were killed. She wept for days on end, and finally was transformed into a stone that stands on Mt. Sipylon. It is worth noting that in the Roman poet Ovid’s magnificently dramatic version of the story, Niobe is not only turned into a stone, but this stone monument actually sheds tears (for the full details of Ovid’s account, try his Metamorphoses – it is a must read for anyone who loves Classical mythology).

The Oracle

Clear parallels with Greek oracles:
“An oracle can be a person, a place, or a thing. As a person an oracle is a priest or priestess who administers a shrine. Such oracles were considered to be in close contact with a god and thereby able to act as mediums to the god. In this fashion, Greeks could pilgrimage to the oracle in order to ask important questions of the gods and receive their answers….It is worthy of note, that despite the male dominated world of the ancient Greeks this role of direct communion with the god Apollo at Delphi was reserved for a woman….note that the god’s answers were often in riddle form, amphibolies, requiring an interpretation….An amphiboly is a statement whose meaning is indeterminate in a peculiar way. The statement has an obvious meaning which is false and a hidden or concealed meaning which is true.”


“These oracular responses were notoriously ambiguous, and their interpretation was often only ‘deduced’ after the event to which they referred.”


The woman who answers the door at the Oracle’s is referred to in the credits as Priestess.


“There are two sentences inscribed upon the Delphic oracle, hugely accommodated to the usages of man’s life: ‘Know thyself,’ and ‘Nothing too much;’ and upon these all other precepts depend.” – PlutarchConsolation to Apollonius


The Oracle to Neo: “You know what that means? It’s Latin. Means know thyself.”


Delphis is also the Greek word for womb.


The Delphic Oracle/Sybil of the Sistine Chapel – does her outfit/colors resemble that of the matrix’s Oracle? Green top, orange skirt, blue sash.


The Oracle’s kitchen also has these colors: green countertops and orange cabinets.

Matrix OracleDelphic Oracle

Search ancient Greek texts
“The Pythia, an elderly priestess of Apollo, was the most famous and respected oracle in the ancient world.” “Pythia is an alternate name for Delphi.” ” Apollo spoke his oracles in the Sanctuary of Gaia through a Pythia who sat on a tripod fastened on the edge (stomion) of a chasm (chasma ges) from which issued an inspiring vapor (pneuma).”
Tripod = 3-leg stool, chasm = oven, inspiring vapor = “Smell good, don’t they?” Hmm?


“…having entered her trance state by inhaling smoke from burnt henbane and/or other psychotropic substances, the priestess would then make her oracular utterances that were interpreted …”
Perhaps why The Oracle was shown smoking?


The Oracle’s room number MAY be C000 <<referring to a PC’s base memory address associated with graphic display.>> (but I think it looks like C960 – they are on the 9th floor.)


Oracle is the name of a large software corporation. Delphic Oracle is the name of a company which makes computer game software.


<<All the prophets and sybils on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, including the Delphic Oracle, foretold the coming of the Messiah. >>

Persephone
Appearences:

Enter the Matrix
Perhaps related to Greek pertho “to destroy” and phone “murder”. In Greek myth she was the daughter of Demeter and Zeus. She was abducted to the underworld by Hades, but was eventually allowed to return to the surface for part of the year. The result of her comings and goings is the changing of the seasons.


The ancient Greeks told the story of Persephone or Kore, daughter of Demeter, the goddess of agriculture. Perspehone was abducted by Hades and
taken to the Underworld, where she was seduced into consuming six seeds of a pomegranate, obliging her to remain in the Underworld as Hades’s bride. Her lamenting mother neglected her duties and the Earth became barren and cold. By decree of Zeus, Persephone was allowed to return to her mother, but only for six months. During the other six (one for each seed), she reigned as Queen of the Dead. The vernal equinox, of course, marks Persephone’s release from the Underworld, and Demeter’s joy at the reunion is manifested in the fertile, blossoming Earth. The story is full of depth and psychological richness, being a tale of sexual awakening and the irreversible loss of childhood, as well as a seasonal allegory.

Peresphone – Meaning dreamer

PHAINO was an OKEANIS playmate of Persephone, Artemis and Athene. Her name is derived from phainen (meaning to appear suddenly) so as a cloud goddess she probably represented the sudden appearance of clouds or rain. – Some kinda link to the ghost like twins perhaps

William of Ockham(linked to Agent Smith) was a philosopher who studied Causality(mentioned be The Merovingian) he stated that there were two kinds of causality, efficient and final. Efficient had cause and effect that was based on a general feeling, while Final Causality was based on love or desire. So the Architect pretty much says that the previous “ones” made their choice due to efficiency (efficient causality), while Neo has made his choice based on love(final causality). The symbolism would be that since they discussed causality and since Neo’s choice had to do with cause and effect and his choice was different than all the previous “ones” before him, his choice was based on that which has the FINAL cause and effect
I don’t know anyone will understand this properly since it can’t seem to find the right words.
If your are curious as to why I said that Agent Smith is linked to William of Ockham, it has do do with Ockham’s Razor. Ockham’s Razor stated that “Entities should not be multiplied unnecessarily.” Another link will be in Revolutions. In the trailer it shows Neo and Smith getting ready to fight one on one even though the street they’re on is lined with Smith’s, well Ockham also states that “What can be done with fewer is done in vain with more.”

Captain: Ballard
First Mate: Malachi
Known Crew:BaneSymbolic staff surmounted by two wings and entwined with two snakes. Among the ancient Greeks the caduceus was carried by heralds and ambassadors as a badge of office and a mark of personal inviolability, because it was the symbol of Hermes, the messenger of the gods. According to Book IV of Virgil’s Aeneid, the Greek god Apollo gave the staff to Hermes in return for the lyre. In Roman mythology the symbol is associated with the god Mercury. The staff of Asclepius, the Greek god of healing, which was entwined by a single snake, was also called a caduceus. The caduceus has been adopted as a symbol by the medical profession; it is also the emblem of the medical branches of the United States Army and Navy.

Son of Daedalus who dared to fly too near the sun on wings of feathers and wax. Daedalus had been imprisoned by King Minos of Crete within the walls of his own invention, the Labyrinth. But the great craftsman’s genius would not suffer captivity. He made two pairs of wings by adhering feathers to a wooden frame with wax. Giving one pair to his son, he cautioned him that flying too near the sun would cause the wax to melt. But Icarus became ecstatic with the ability to fly and forgot his father’s warning. The feathers came loose and Icarus plunged to his death in the sea.

King of Babylon:
Daniel 2-5. <<Nebuchadnezzar was a historical king, but there are legends about him in the Book of Daniel. He has a dream and wants it interpreted, but he can’t remember what it was! Daniel tells him his dream and interprets it for him. Later, Nebuchadnezzar is striken mad and wanders like a beast in the wilderness.>>
<<My King James version of the Bible Dictionary says that Nebuchadnezzar literally means: “Nebo, protect the crown” (or the landmark.) Nebo was the Babylonian God of Wisdom. The madness part – it says he later recovered and acknowledged God’s power and goodness.>>


2 Kings 24 – “In his days Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came up, and Jehoiakim became his servant three years: then he turned and rebelled against him.”

Osiris

Final Flight of the Osiris
Osiris was the Egyptian God of the earth and kingship, and by association with vegetation in general and in particular grain. The yearly drought and his miraculous rebirth with the regular flooding of the Nile. He was both a God and the first King who was believed to have given Egypt civilization.The oldest religious texts refer to Osiris as the great god of the dead, and throughout these texts it is assumed that the reader will understand that he once possessed human form and lived on earth.

The elements of the Osiris story was seen as symbolic of real events that happened in Egypt. With his original association to agriculture, his death and resurrection were seen as symbolic of the annual death and re-growth of the crops and the yearly flooding of the Nile. The sun too with its daily re-birth and death was associated with Osiris. His rivalry with his brother Seth, the god of storms and the desert, was symbolic of the eternal war between the fertile lands of the Nile Valley and the barren desert lands just beyond. The pharaoh of Egypt was called Horus, while his deceased father was the new Osiris.In this middle period, Osiris became the God of the Underworld, with Ra still as the supreme God. Osiris, Isis and Horus became part of his solar court. At first Ra also had an important role within the Underworld (as well as in the heavens, as Creator God and ensurer of stability and harmony).

The life and death of the Pharoah became absolutely tied in with the Egyptian beliefs in the death and resurrection of Osiris. Osiris himself had been an earthly King who had died but due to the loyalty of his wife been reborn, as a King of the Underworld. As the new Pharoah took over the throne, so the old Pharoah passed into eternal life. Both Osiris and Ra were invoked in the funerary rites of the Pharoah (as well as the embalment of the physical remains) to help ensure that this occurred. These burial rites had long been extended by association to the immediate family and important ministers of the Pharoah. Later these rites were adopted by the people themselves and it seems to be around this period that the funerary rites became more and more associated with Osiris. Perhaps he was considered, once having been believed to be human himself, to be more approachable than the distant Ra. The story of the good man murdered by his evil brother, but attaining life through the efforts of his loving wife took on a new role and importance.

This is the 6th Matrix according to the Architect. Why is it the 6th that is the one we expect will be the one to end it?The idea of more than one world is addressed in the Jewish Midrash that describes God creating multiple worlds and rejecting them before creating the one on which we all live now… ok, but what about 6?


Entirely different idea: Creation took 7 days. On the sixth day God created Man and Woman. Now the sixth Matrix corresponds to the sixth day. So it is in the sixth Matrix that humanity will wake up and become free. It is in the sixth Matrix that humans will be free to govern themselves.

Destroying the Matrix then will herald in the seventh day. On that day God (or whomever represents God in the movie) will rest…
