Out of the Blue

Okay, so what did I miss? I just caught a portion of The Matrix Reloaded on the satellite again yesterday, and something stuck in my mind that I hadn't noticed before (let me insert a spoiler warning here in case you have yet to see this one... just skip to the links of the day).

So the Architect tells Neo that they've destroyed Zion six times now, but then later refers to Neo's five predecessors. I they've destroyed Zion six times, wouldn't he be the seventh Neo? If there was a version of this event that didn't include a Neo (or if the Architect was simply lying), I would hope that would be clarified. On the other hand, if this repopulate Zion scenario took place as he described, wouldn't the "old" Neo be part of Zion's current populace? I guess this all speaks again to how disappointed I was in how few further wrinkles about all this were included in Matrix Revolutions.

Neo was jacked in through the "kernel" of the Matrix. By allowing Agent Smith to take over his body/mind (copy himself, whatever the hell it is that he does), the essence of Smith overwrote Neo. And the whole goal of that was that since Smith overwrote Neo who was directly jacked in to the kernel, the "virus" was destroyed. So you can conclude that:

Virus = Smith = Neo = Dead

But Smith took over The Oracle and she turned out did the little kid that was with her.

edit: As a matter of fact, Smith had taken over EVERYONE by the end of the movie. The matrix can't be empty now, with no people in it...

I'd say everyone was restored.

There is the theory of the moebius, a twist in the fabric of space where time becomes a loop time becomes a loop time becomes a loop
