Those of you that know me probably recall my obsession with The Matrix films. And although the severity of my obsession has declined a little this article certainly did a good job about getting me excited again.
For those of you that have not been following The Matrix Online (thank God for that, it's crap.), you need to understand that whoever is writing it now has completely disregarded the original story now. And because of that things are probably ruined for a very long time in any hopes of ever having a sequel. However, I do enjoy the comments made by the article's author when he speculates on the nature of the preceding "One's." It sounds crazy when he proposes that the Merovingian and Seraph are probably digital re-incarnations of a predecessor, but he makes damn good arguments for it.
I do not, however, agree with his notions of both a digital incarnate and the original Neo existing in the same space. One or the other would be fine, but when you introduce two at once it becomes rather gimmicky.
Perhaps I'm just a sucker for The Matrix. But I always find reading new concepts and perceptions of others very intriguing on the subject. And seeing as how this story is currently on the front page of Digg, others do as well.
