The green tint is suggestive of the early monochrome cathode monitors, a piece of imagery associated with early computing: The Wachowski's wanted to create a mood palette, so they could cross cut between the Matrix and the Real world and an audience could immediately identify where the action was occuring through the use of such a colour scheme.

The main explanation I've seen, and that seems to be pretty official, was that the plug thing Neo has in the back of his head worked as a wireless device. Well, as you will read below, this isn't actually specified like this, but since the source speaks of the "brain becoming a wireless connection", it seems the safest thing to assume. In any case, no ...

I don't think Neo couldn't carry his martial arts skills to the real world. It is true that he learned them inside the matrix and they were more programmed into his brain rather than learned the "traditional" way. But if there is one thing that is the same in both the real world and the matrix, it's Neo's brain, since that is how he's connected to and ...

I like the answer @JohnSmithOptional gave. Also, the directors have explained that they thought the color blue was too happy/cheerful, so they chose to make the sky within the Matrix green. The one time that bright blue is used is in the last half hour of the 3rd movie: a ship flies way up above the clouds, in the Real World, and there's a moment of ...

No, a pretty much official explanation exists. And the question is not really "open". As I've stated in this answer, it's explained by the fact that when Neo comes into contact with the Source (i.e. when he meets the Architect), his brain becomes a wireless connection. After all, the real time in the Matrix franchise is set in a tech-wise advanced future, ...

This is not the first matrix, its third one and Oracle helped Architect to build this one. From the failure of previous two matrix, Oracle and Architect given the humans 'free will'. So Oracle always in support of free will for Humans. Her action sometimes cause imbalance in matrix but Architect is always there to control the effects. Like other agents and ...

The Oracle's main function is to counterbalance the Architect. It was the Oracle and the Architect who built The Matrix, and the events in the trilogy are actually taking place in the third Matrix, as the first 2 failed. The Oracle stands for free will, whereas the Architect stands for order. As a result, I'd find it difficult to tie Turing's oracle into ...

Did she already know by this point that things would somehow workout in favour of the humans, also in such a way that the machine world does not get destroyed as well? Probably not. But I'm sure she believed. This is what the final lines of the film were referring to: Seraph : Did you always know? The Oracle: Oh, no. No, I didn't. But I ...

Along with Christian's excellent answer, there is another factor which I don't think he's touched upon. I think the key here is muscle memory. While both Neo and Smith (as Bane) bring knowledge from the Matrix, they do not have the muscle memory required to actually perform any of it in the real world with any sort of skill. Everything performed in the ...

I think the answer is that it was suggested a supermatrix, because it's more likely within the matrix's universe, considering the machine's cold logic, but the idea was possible abandoned. Why a super-matrix? The machines where able to defeat Neo and Agent Smith, and his viral propagation, at the same time, and took Zion after the battle. If the machines' ...

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trinity_(The_Matrix): Trinity made a return to the series in the official continuation, The Matrix Online. Taking on a major role in the game's final chapters it was revealed both she and Neo were actually the cumulation of decades of Machine research into translating human DNA perfectly into Machine code, allowing them ...

The Original Movie script (post adaptation) sheds some light on this: I believed that all I had to do was point my finger and anoint whoever I chose. I was wrong, Neo. Terribly wrong. Not a day or night passes that I do not think of them. After the fifth, I lost my way. I doubted everything the Oracle had said. I doubted myself. And ...

It could. The idea of a "dream within a dream" was probably popularized by the Edgar Allan Poe poem, published in 1849, and so the idea has had time to pervade the public meme space.

If (as some do) you exclude the sequels, then yes, it is magick. Due to his direct experience of the virtual reality, the real reality, and the signals that interconnected these two, he was in the position to realize that the real world follows very similar (if not identical) rules. The literature of magick and neoplatonism strongly describe the world as ...

If you want to force an explanation,the idea is that Neo is like an virus inside matrix same as one virus would be on your computer,but when Neo is unplugged/your pc powered off it can't pose any threat. But if the virus was so good,and your hardware(motherboard BIOS) poorly built/programmed...the virus could theoretically take control of your ...
