On the ending of the film, I think that the concept of the matrix being reset is important. In essence, the film takes the blue pill at this point and the secondary matrix is not transcended, thus god or true oneness is not really reached. If we consider it so that advanced races see beyond what we can (and if the inspiration behind the Matrix is seen to hold truth) yet they are still in the game of duality then this makes sense in terms of the films.
It is often noted the construct we enter into when we see through our 3d reality, has numerous machine like qualities. Of course this could be actual tech of a hyper advanced race or demigods/demons. And so I think the Matrix symbology almost makes more sense when taken in a more literal way.
The machines that keep us in the matrix do so in order to feed from our energy. This turns up in a number of seemingly innocent films... I would like to point out Disney's "Monsters Inc", creatures from another world get their power from human fears and other emotions (look out for the tiny all seeing eye in a pyramid in the early part of that movie while describing this very process).
They draw our attention away from the reality with the lady in red. The merovingian consciousness programs or uses the matrix to its own liking. So it seems this race would be classed as evil by any consciousness, and so it is likely they are just in another level of the matrix, another level of vibrational frequency, but still not near god or oneness.
Perhaps we have a choice this time around to stop the matrix from resetting and perhaps go straight to the most high.
Iam rambling. I was sort of re-affirming things in my own head because I first thought that seeing through the Matrix was the highest enlightenment one could seek to attain when infact that is just the beginning.

I Agree with you, we have a choose to break the cycle. The symbol is the Ouroboros the snake eating its own tail. We have a chance to start or create something new

My question is how is any of this hidden?
I mean, if you are at all knowledgeable of history, mythology, religion and/or science & math you would instantly recognize the symbolism that is being laid out to you. My point is, its not "hidden". They are not really pulling the covers over anyone eyes, except maybe for those who are not well versed in the above topics.
- If you have been to Bible study, you will recognize some of the names and their role.
- If you have read Mythology, you will recognize some of the names and their role.
- If you know a lot of History, you will recognize some of the names and their role.
As you can see, there is lots of places to get a basis for the names and plots being spit at you. Probably why The Matrix did so well, because lots of people already understood the underlying themes.
"The Matrix" movie is basically a rehashed version of historical/mythological/religious story remade for the year 2000 type technologys.
In essence, its plot has been done before for thousands of years.

If anyone missed it, here is Neo's passport with the 9/11 reference:
I just hope that the stamp above neos head is not a reference to the devil, maybe it is a crown or something and it has capital hill on his head. Maybe somethings are deeper, I don't believe this is a conspiracy, maybe certain higher beings know about future avents or people are some how spirited to know like some sign from God.
