I'm beginning to think the new Matrix movie has worse overall science than
was based on.
Let's count the absurdities of story and science within the Matrix mythos.
I'll start the ball rolling with:
1- The "machines" get more energy out of a vegitized human body than was put into it.
2- The humans "scorched the sky" yet somehow there is still air for Zion (with no plant life?)
3- A giant pod-farm of humans is more efficient than a nuclear reactor at producing energy.
4- Zion is deep within the earth, but not too hot for humans (with open pits of lava visible... what about sulfur fumes?).
5- This is apparently one "Matrix" in a long series of versions... but I thought the "Matrix" had to be running for the humans-in-pods to produce
energy... how did they transition from one to the other?
6- Neo reverts to pre-"The One" capabilities of the first movie.
7- Why a 8 minute fight scene when a rocket would solve the problem?
Who wants to add more. I'm sure our fine members could come up with a total of 99 absurdities within the Matrix that we could then get Simon to
publish on his main site.
(I'll update this top-thread list as new items are added)
