The End of the Matrix, EPISODE 1 (The Matrix Revelations Vol. 2)

The Matrix Revelations

Volume 2: The End of the Matrix


(Sequel for “The Matrix Revelations” and a final chapter for the whole saga.)


Episode 1: Deus Neo and his Group


Brief flashbacks take place showing what happened at the very end of The Matrix Revelations, when the sixth Neo found a way to delete the deusian anomaly; when Maxio revealed the truth about the Matrix to Neo; and when both Neo and Rodner were taken to the Deusian World by Maxio, after the liberation of Thomas Anderson’s world from the Virtual Matrices.

The flashbacks also show how the final Neo (the young Thomas) and the final Trinity (the young Aida) were taken to the same city by the Oracle and by the fifth Trinity, respectively.

It was evident that the other surviving members of the Trinity Squad were going to look for them as well. In particular, they were looking for Neo and for their former captain, Leida Trinity…

After all the initial flashbacks, the older Neo and Rodner Smith wake up, at the world of the deuses. Rodner looks scared and Neo looks ready for whatever is in storage for them.

Deus Neo and his team had moved them from their secret lab at a desert area to a house with glass-like walls…

Neo quickly notices the striking resemblances—in personality and voices—of the members of Deus Neo’s group with people that he had known and been helped by.

It was a striking epiphany, just like the one he had when he saw the faces of the Trinity Squad’s members for the first time, after his past rescue from the City of the Machines. He could instantly tell that some of them looked and sounded like people who had been vital to his success.

Now, something very similar was happening as Neo took a deeper look at Deus Neo and the members of his group…

He observed and heard each one of them, noticing that they were just like people he had met, even if these new faces were deuses (future humans), rather than ancient humans from the Matrix—like Thomas Anderson and the others.

Deus Xenor was the only one that had visible weapons and a clear war-like armor. His voice and demeanor were almost a perfect copy of the fallen General Frank Xenno from the Resistance.

Deus Seracheng didn’t talk, but he walked and sat down exactly as Seraph—like a ninja monk. Simultaneously, the guy reminded Neo of the two iterations of Seraph that he met, the one from the Inner Virtual Matrix and the member of the Trinity Squad from Thomas Anderson’s world. All three of them had the same demeanor.

Deus Daya and Maxio were standing together in the same exact way as Matthew and Dayana used to stand. Maxio was also regaining his strength after the mission, and his gestures of recovery reminded Neo of movements that he saw Matthew doing as well. Furthermore, Maxio had already shown him and Leida Trinity that, if he was and ancient human, his physical look was indeed the same as Matthew’s look.

They were almost like deusian counterparts to the members of the Trinity Squad and to other important people…

Neo also recognized that Deus Neo and Idana were extremely similar to Thomas Anderson and Aida Trinity. And they reminded him of his Trinity and himself too.

In the same manner, he recognized the similarity between the younger deusian girl in the room and the blue-eyed girl that he met before—the one that helped him to see the truth, which helped him to save Thomas Anderson’s world.

Deus Morpheo reminded him of Yan Morphen and Morpheus; and even the girl’s deusanoid robot reminded him of the Trinity Squad’s robot, Bern.

It was all so clear to Neo that it could not be a coincidence.

There had to be some explanation for all the similarities…

The only one that was hard to recognize was Deus Neda because she stayed away from the rest, looking and observing everything and everyone, as if she wanted to predict their fates, like an oracle.

All of them—except the young girl—had the size and shape of giant fifteen-meter-tall humans with white-looking skin, yellowish eyes, very large black pupils, no hair on sight, smaller noses, and futuristic-looking clothes that had the shape and style of Neo’s former black vest.

When Rodner Smith asked them who they were, Xenor grabbed him and took him away from the room without answering.

Then, they all sat down and Deus Neo talked to the older Neo.

It was a surprising start, full of revelations…

Deus Neo revealed to Neo that Thomas Anderson and his team were not supposed to exist.

They had never existed in the original timeline (which was their deusian timeline), before the Matrix was made to revive the past in a mini-microscopic scale. Likewise, the human-deusian hybrid, or “the human anomaly” in the Matrix never existed in the original timeline because he was created by Thomas Anderson, and there was no Thomas Anderson.

However, Deus Neo and his team changed everything…

They needed to obtain the ancient DNA that they would have had, if they had been born at that point in the evolution of the human race. Therefore, he and his team undertook a secret operation to hack the Matrix. They ensured that a group of ancient humans that was just like them would be born at that specific moment in history within a common city.

At first, the team’s only purpose was fulfilling their secret DNA retrieval mission for the Deusian Council, but when they found out everything about the ancient humans and saw their alternate ancient selves, Deus Neo’s views about the Matrix changed. He decided that they had to save the ancient ones that had been recreated in the Matrix—all of them, the entire recreation of ancient mankind, not just the new ones that they created for their team’s mission. The problem, however, was that the Grand Council of the Deuses and their leaders had different plans. They were about to get rid of the Matrix (which was a real, but lab-made miniature copy of their larger multiverse in its past time).

The reality was that the original reason for the creation of the Matrix was no longer an issue (the lethal DNA virus, which made it necessary to obtain ancient human DNA for a cure).

What remained were just “what-if” experiments from the deusian government’s secret programs. Some of those included “time-travel experiments” that didn’t require doing any time travel, because, by using the Matrix to get access to the recreated past universe, they could see and even go to the past anywhere; they just had to visit the Matrix, which existed in their present, with an almost endless supply of copies of their past universe at all the different stages and times.

However, the dangers that such a system could pose to the future humans became evident; it could be used to test some pretty dark experiments in the “past real world” without anyone knowing about them in their Deusian World. Then, it would be possible to use the findings from the Matrix in their world as well. After all, despite how microscopic it was, the Matrix was still a real copy of their multiverse, so what worked there could work in their reality as well.

The Council didn’t want to be blamed for such experiments and the Matrix wasn’t a necessity for the survival of the deuses anymore. Therefore, the Council chose to undertake a few more useful missions before finally ending the Matrix and everything in it. One of those missions was the one led by Deus Neo and his group in secret. Its purpose was to experiment with the DNA codes of the same individual, as an ancient human and as a present deus, to see if it could lead them to figuring out how to make the present deus (and subsequently, any deus) much more powerful.

The mission was reported at the Council as “not successful,” but as Deus Neo was telling Neo about all these events, he also revealed that the public report was a lie. Behind all the covers, his team’s mission resulted in new and important findings, which convinced the Council’s leaders about the true dangers that the Matrix could bring to their world. It showed them that their ancient copies in the Matrix could be used for much more than just to cure the LDNA virus, which was what led them to create the Matrix in the first place.

Now, it was only a matter of time before the Council decided to destroy the Matrix with all its traces of a past that was supposed to be long gone…

The risk was too great to keep the Matrix alive…

Unfortunately, things got more complicated for them because some unknown source from their world hacked the Matrix as well; and both the reasons and the identities of the other hackers were completely unknown.

The Council was facing a new grand threat because of the Matrix.

Unknown enemies had breached their classified information and they had even hacked into the Matrix, making it possible for them to make undercover experiments of their own.

The Council had attempted experiments to unlock the deusian brain to 100% of its power, and they had failed. However, there was nothing that could ensure them that the unknown hackers had not done a similar thing (or even worse things) and achieved success, unlike them. In effect, if they kept the Matrix alive, they probably had an open weapon of limitless potential that could be used against them by an enemy that they couldn’t even locate.

In addition, Deus Neo and his followers became avid proponents of saving the ancient humans from the Matrix, even if the real-life system had to be destroyed. This was in effect the same as changing history, because the ancient humans from the recreated past were not supposed to exist in their future world. And if they were going to be saved, they had to be brought to their world.

The Council’s denial of such a thing brought them heavy political discord. Deus Neo was removed from his Chancillor position, but he and his teammates could not be removed completely from the Council. And they were given a final chance to prove that the ancient ones were useful for them and worthy of being saved, before ending the Matrix for good.

Meanwhile, the threat of the unknown hackers only grew and they found the way to obtain what they wanted…

Then, Deus Neo’s access to the Matrix was removed and the same happened with his privileges at the Council. This was when he decided to undertake the secret operation with Maxio and the others. Apparently, he still had powerful people in the Council that believed in him, so someone granted him access to the Matrix for the members of his group.

Then, Deus Neo sent the all-important message to Thomas Anderson with the essential source codes of the Real Matrix. He included a plan to create someone that would be able to save them all, and someone that would also help him and his group to prove that their cause was worthy. Knowing the possible consequences, Maxio volunteered to infiltrate the Matrix to bring a top human sample that would include “the One”—the almighty human-deusian hybrid that Deus Neo expected Thomas Anderson to create.

As we know from “The Matrix Revelations,” Maxio entered the Matrix and experienced many troubles with the ancient humans while he tried to “collect” his perfect sample. However, he never harmed anyone at will and what visited the Matrix wasn’t even his real self; what was sent there was a microscopic copy of his body that acted based on Maxio’s will from his connection station. The copy was also given partial access to the “reality-breaking” codes for the Matrix, making Maxio a godly being inside the Matrix.

Eventually, Maxio was captured by Rodner Smith. And Mr. Smith clearly had some sort of contact with the unknown deusian hackers. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have had something that could neutralize and control Maxio. Despite all his genius, Rodner was still an ancient human; and the same could be said for Thomas Anderson…

After revealing a large part of the story to Neo, Deus Neo and his teammates began to get ready to take Neo and Rodner to the Deusian Council, but Neo had something important to tell them.

Neo knew what the unknown deusian hackers were after. It was the experiment of the Virtual Matrices and the creation of the deusian anomaly—a godly being and a way to enslave a planet’s population. If those two occurrences were possible at the Real Matrix, which was a real environment with some well-hidden cybernetical manipulations and special codes, then, they weren’t totally impossible at the world of the deuses, outside of the Matrix. The unknown enemy probably wanted to make a “Deus Ex” or a “Virtual Matrix” at their world.

Deus Neo and his group were aware about the anomaly though, since the Council had attempted to make the equivalent of such a living weapon, but they had failed. They also believed that the fact that such a thing had already worked with an ancient human from inside the Matrix was enough proof to show their worth to the deuses, and more than enough proof to show the dangers of the Matrix once more.

The news of “virtual matrices” within the real one surprised some of the members Deus Neo’s group though. It was obvious that some of them were not aware about that possibility yet, but it seemed like Deus Neo, Idana, and Neda already knew about that too…

They prepared themselves to go back to the Council, taking Neo and Rodner with them. Deus Neo was going to show not only a prime sample of what ancient humans could do, but also a sample that contained the successful “human anomaly,” or Neo.

Obviously, Neo could tell that Deus Neo and the others did not reveal absolutely everything to him, but something was clear: they were the good ones and they were on mankind’s side. Therefore, he decided to help them.

In their travel to the Council, Rodner didn’t speak a word. He had not been present during Neo’s conversation with the deuses. Apparently, he expected the worst for himself. The look on his face revealed that he wasn’t expecting anything good or positive out of the Deusian World. Perhaps, he had his reasons to feel that way…

Neo, on the other hand, seemed far more optimistic. He saw the City of the Matrix during their path, noticing many structures that looked all-white, all-black, or glass-like and transparent in color, from the outside. The location looked both futuristic and strangely simplistic at the same time. He also saw the massive spherical structure that was floating on their sky. It looked like it contained an infinite black sea of shiny stars inside. Somehow, Neo already knew what it was. It was the Matrix and the shiny stars were the copies of the original universe. He had been extracted and brought there from one of those shiny stars—from the only one that was a 100% perfect copy of the original deusian universe to be exact…

It was the first time that anyone from inside the Matrix had seen it from the outside.

At last, Neo had truly left the Matrix…

They reached the Council’s Chamber at the center of the City of the Matrix and left the automated vehicles that transported them all the way there.

Deus Morpheo was the one that carried Neo on his bare hands; and Deus Xenor continued carrying Rodner Smith in his armored hand, as if he was a prisoner.

Clearly, they knew that Smith wasn’t a good guy inside the Matrix.

Maxio had surely warned them about him…

The vehicles that took them there vanished and Deus Neo’s group walked towards the entrance of the Council.

The majestic building of the Deusian Council looked like a really important building. It seemed like the kind of place where you would expect kings or world leaders to reunite…

Neo hoped that something good for mankind would happen there.

I don’t have plans to write this full sequel as a 300-page book, like I did with the first one. What I will do for “The Matrix Revelations 2” is a few short episodes to reveal everything that was left to answer in the first one. I will expose the entire story for “The End of the Matrix,” and it will conclude the entire saga of The Matrix for me and for any reader…

I would have liked to dedicate more time to flesh out the entire story with more dialogues and more details for the action-packed battles, but that would take me months. It would be much wiser if I use all that time for my original stories and my actual job (which is not being an epic storyteller). Therefore, I decided that I will write a good and complete “synopsis” and uncover the whole story for part 2. Then, I will be done with my contribution to The Matrix Saga and I can concentrate on what comes next…

I would only go back and contribute more to it if a movie studio wants to turn The Matrix Revelations 1 and 2 into movie sequels for the first three Matrix movies. Obviously, I would be able to do great scripts and dialogues because I know these stories and these characters like the palm of my hand. I didn’t create The Matrix, but I was the creator of The Matrix Revelations, so I know I would contribute a lot to the “Revelations” universe in any medium of entertainment (not just in writing). I, however, doubt that my two awesome stories will be chosen for new Matrix movies. My Twitter and LinkedIn messages to directors and actors were ignored. I might still try to self-publish these two stories in the Kindle to make them widely available for anyone to experience. We’ll see… Regardless of what happens, it’s time for me to get started with my best stories, which are also 100% my own. They don’t exist yet (except in my mind), but they will come to life soon (in the form of books)…

I will start with one of my original stories this year. I think I’m done with my practice phase… Although I am not done with great fanfiction stories, I will put them on the back seat for a while. My original stories will take the lead soon…

As always, the best in Pedro Cristobal’s repertoire of stories has yet to come ; )




Teaser Trailer for The Matrix Revelations 2:

This is basically what I would put on the back cover, if this was printed or distributed as a small book.


Soundtracks for The Matrix Revelations 2:

An * will be used to mark my favorite ones.

I paired these with events that happen in the story. Some sounded like good “character themes” as well. Keep in mind that I did not pair all the events or characters with soundtracks. There is much more. These are just the ones I found that were a good fit for what I had in mind for certain scenes. There are characters and events that didn’t get any soundtrack, but they play good roles in the story. For example, I didn’t find any soundtrack that was a good fit for characters like Rosa Smith, Jack, or Deus Dillion’s wife. Regardless, these collection of music gives a pretty good idea of what to expect from “The End of the Matrix.” It’s like an alternate teaser trailer with music.

Needless to say, you won’t be able to fully appreciate how awesome “The End of the Matrix” is if you don’t know what happened in the first four entries. The first three entries are the three original movies (The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded, The Matrix Revolutions). You can rent and watch those three easily, using Youtube or Netflix. The fourth entry, or rather, my “new big sequel” for the saga, is the book-length story that I wrote last year, which is the first science-fiction book that I have completed. I named it “The Matrix Revelations.” And yeah, as you may be thinking, I’m here to tell you that you need to know what happens in that one because this one is the direct sequel for it. That’s why I call it “Volume 2.” The great news are that both stories are excellent, so, it doesn’t matter if you haven’t read “Revelations 1” yet. You would be in a much better position if you haven’t read it… That just means that you have a lot more to enjoy from my repertoire then ^__^. I say that because I think “The Matrix Revelations” was around 400 pages. And, not to brag or anything, but I liked it even more than the story in the original Matrix movie. Perhaps, that’s why I decided that it had to be written. So, those of you that don’t know it can experience that first and then come back for more in “The End of the Matrix,” which is its sequel and my last work for this saga.

Here is the link to all the parts from the previous story for those lucky ones of you that haven’t read it yet:

You can continue and finish that epic sci-fi experience by reading what happens in “The Matrix Revelations, Volume 2: The End of the Matrix,” which is much shorter.

And don’t be fooled by seeing the word “end” in the title. Even though this is about how the Matrix ends, it’s still a story full of great characters, awesome battles, deep revelations, and a satisfying ending for the saga!! It’s just as good as the first Matrix Revelations if you ask me : )

And it is what I’m planning to post next.

THE EXTRAS for The Matrix Revelations 2

TEASER TRAILER for “The Matrix Revelations, Volume 2: The End of the Matrix”



Same Narrator from the Teaser Trailer for The Matrix Revelations 1 [with epic voice]:

‘We once thought that the Matrix and its revolution had ended, when Neo and Deus Ex Machina worked together to stop the war that was unleashed in the system by agent Smith’s anomaly…

However, that was far from the case… that action had only stopped the revolution that took place in the Green and Yellow Layers of the Virtual Matrix; it had not even touched the Real Matrix, and all the characters that we knew were still trapped in the virtual one…

In “The Matrix Revelations,” the real revolution of the true Matrix took place and many secrets about the Matrix were revealed. The existence of a grand plan to save the humans and to end the Matrix was also revealed to the sixth Neo…

Eventually, the older Neo, a different iteration of Trinity, and a team of outstanding newcomers had to stop an unknown being that had the same powers as Neo. They also had to face a new anomaly that brought the real revolution to the Real Matrix. And they ended up uncovering the truth about it all: the truth about what the Matrix really was, the truth about Neo’s creators, and the truth about the past and the present at Thomas Anderson’s world…

However, even after a final victory, many sacrifices, many revelations, and the destruction of the Virtual Matrices that enslaved Thomas Anderson’s world, essential questions still remained, because the grand plan to save mankind and to end the Real Matrix had not been fulfilled completely… The Real Matrix was still there, and mankind was still blind to the truth—except for a couple of brave souls that had fought with Neo during “The Matrix Revelations”…

What was going to happen after that? What was the next step in Thomas Anderson’s plan? What was going to be the fate of the sixth Neo? What was the whole truth about Deus Neo and Thomas Anderson’s group? How would the final Neo save them all? And most importantly, how was the Matrix going to end?

All of that and much more takes place in “The Matrix Revelations, Volume 2: The End of The Matrix”…

Prepare yourselves for the final chapter of the saga.’

TEASER TRAILER for “The Matrix Revelations, Volume 2: The End of the Matrix”

Scenes After the Credits in The Matrix Revelations (the true ending) / Also, a Teaser for “The End of the Matrix”

The “After-Credits Scenes” for The Matrix Revelations (This occurs after Part 9B and it’s also the first teaser trailer for “The Matrix Finale,” or “The Matrix Revelations 2: The End of the Matrix”)


Another white laboratory was shown at the world of the deuses. It looked very similar to the place where Deus Neo and his group had set up Maxio’s connection to the Matrix.

There were three other deuses present and one of them was connected to a device, just like Deus Maxio.

It was implied that the “asleep deus inside the experimental sphere” was connected to the Matrix, in the same way as Maxio was. It was also shown that this was taking place at the same time as when Maxio was connected, but in another hidden location at their world…

All of a sudden, the connected deus started to move abruptly, showing pain, and parts of his real body started to disappear. It was as if he was being erased from existence.

At that point, the view of the scene began to get closer and closer to the deus that was disappearing, and when it reached his face, we could see that it was Deus Ex—the deusian anomaly—in his original deusian form.

In other words, Ex’s original self was a true deus from the deusian world; his consciousness had not been created inside the Matrix, but unlike Maxio, he wasn’t aware of it…

Eventually, Deus Ex disappeared completely and the connection sphere was left empty, with nothing inside.

Then, the other two deuses present began to talk. It was clear that the one in the right was the leader. He was wearing a white cape with a large silver symbol that looked similar to a cross. The other one had a metallic arm and one metallic foot. Clearly, she was part deusian and part robot—a hybrid from the deusanoid faction.

Female Deus on the left [looking at the empty sphere / sounding a little concerned]: “Deus Ex is gone. Then, the experiment of the enhanced deus was a failure.”

Leader [his face isn’t shown and he has General Lock’s voice]: “A failure? Not at all. It was a complete success. He didn’t even know anything about the Real Matrix and look at how far he went. He didn’t know anything about the truth, and still, he was omnipotent, first in the virtual world, and later in the real one. Nothing would have stopped him from reaching us here if the other anomaly that we detected had not been present. Indeed, he proved to be even more powerful than what we anticipated. The deus that was enhanced by our experiment in the Matrix was a truly unstoppable force. Now, imagine what would be possible if those that know everything, like we do, obtain that kind of power here, in the true original world.”

Female Deus: “But… the deusian anomaly was not unstoppable sir. There was an entity that could stop it. The enhanced Deus Ex was stopped by one of the ancient humans, which were supposed to be powerless in comparison to us.”

Leader [still confident]: “A human? Don’t be foolish. Because of the Matrix’s design, no human and no living being there could ever use those kinds of manipulations of the system from the inside. The one that stopped Deus Ex was not an ancient human from the past. It was another experimental entity that was started and introduced in the Matrix by one of us.”

Female Deus: “Could it be…”

Leader [certain]: “Deus Neo and his group of followers, of course. He is the only one that would be willing to go that far to save the ancients from their inevitable doom, when the Matrix ends.”

Female Deus: “But that can’t be. They already sent Maxio there, after the Council accepted their last request. And they don’t have any way to send someone else without the access codes from the Council.”

Leader: “They didn’t need to send someone else. That is why the other anomaly was one of the ancient humans and not another deus… There are other ways to send things into the Matrix, without going there yourself. That is how I started the project with the enhanced deus and the Virtual Sub-Matrices. An ancient human did it for me—one that I chose very carefully, knowing that his personal interests were perfectly aligned with mine.”

Female Deus: “Then… how do you suggest that we proceed from now on?”

Leader: “Deus Naebula, you should already know what the next step is. A hybrid of your caliber should have been able to infer what I’m thinking by now.”

Naebula: “Yes, but hearing it from you has much more meaning sir. After all, you are the one that brought us together and achieved equality among the deusian robots, the deusian hybrids like me, and the deuses like you. What do you want our next step to be, Deus Theos?”

Deus Theos [sounding conclusive]: “It’s time to end it. We already achieved what we wanted. We have the means to create a deus that is capable of bending the laws of existence at will, effectively creating a new reality as he or she sees fit. Now, we must ensure that this grand power stays with us only. Just with you and me…”

The leader touched the lips of the deusian female hybrid in a way that left it very clear that they were more than just associates that worked together in a plan.

Deus Theos: “And don’t ever forget that my real name must not be mentioned when we are not alone. I am ‘Deus T’ for the members of the Council and for everyone. They must never know that ‘Theos’ is my original name. If they know it someone could make deductions that could lead them to figure out who I really am. And I don’t need anyone else, other than you, to know that.”

Naebula: “I would never do that sir. You know that I would do anything for you.”

Deus T: “And that is why I want you to be one of the masters, after we use the power of the Matrix to change our realm.”

Although his face wasn’t fully revealed, the side of his lips was shown, and the unknown leader smiled in a way that looked confident and dangerous.

Deus T: “The cure for the LDNA virus is history by now, so we can force the Council to end the Matrix. Our goals there were achieved with Deus Ex’s experiment, so we don’t need to go back again.

The time has come for us to end the Matrix and to take over the Council of the Deuses.

A new era is going to begin…

It will be an era shaped by us, the masters of the Matrix…”

The view left the newly revealed villain and it went back to the Matrix. It showed us how Yan Morphen was walking at a place that was full of people everywhere. It looked like they were building a new city there.

Suddenly, a woman with a brown cloak grabbed Yan’s hand. She left a small paper in it, and she kept on walking among the crowd with haste.

At first, it seemed like she was the Oracle again, but the young woman’s hood fell back and her identity was revealed. She was the Indian girl that the Oracle adopted at the end of “The Matrix Revolutions,” but, she was 20 years older now.

Yan Morphen opened her message on the paper and read it.

Voice of the Oracle’s Helper [message on paper]: “You are here to fulfill your destiny Morpheus. The one you seek has entered the city already. Neo will need you. Seek him, and find him, as soon as possible. Your journey with Neo is not over and neither is the Matrix…”

Yan tried to chase the woman after he read the message, but he had already lost her from his sight and he couldn’t find her…

Finally, the Indian woman met up with the Oracle at another location.

Nera Williams (The Oracle): “Did you give him the message?”

The Oracle’s Helper: “Yes.”

Nera: “How did it go?”

Oracle’s Helper: “It went as planned. He didn’t have a chance to see my face and I saw that he read the message.”

Oracle’s Helper [thoughtful, just as she was as a little girl at the end of The Matrix Revolutions]: “Mrs. Williams, will we ever see the sixth Neo again?”

Nera: “That’s a question that even I don’t have the answer for, but, he surpassed what Thomas Anderson expected from the sixth iteration of The One, so, anything is possible… If I had to give my best guess, I would say yes, we are going to see that Neo again… And I don’t that we will need to wait another 20 years this time…”

The Oracle and the now-grown girl smiled at each other and looked at the sunset from Thomas Anderson’s world.

It was just like the beautiful sunset that they had seen in the Virtual Matrix, twenty years ago…

//////////  END for “The Matrix Revelations”  /////////////


However, The Matrix Saga will be CONTINUED AND FINISHED in

“The Matrix Revelations 2: The End of the Matrix.”

I will finish it with the epic story and the epic end that The Matrix always deserved…


NEXT 1A — Brief but Complete Synopsis of the story for “The End of the Matrix” (everywhere)

^^^ I don’t plan to write the complete script or the full book for “The End of the Matrix,” unless (of course), a director from Hollywood wanted to hire me to do it. If they do that in order to turn “The Matrix Revelations” and “The End of The Matrix” into real movies to continue the Matrix Saga on the big screen, I would obviously do it with joy. Otherwise, I have to use the little writing time I have to write my other original stories that are not sequels to anything that exists (because they are original series that I haven’t done yet).

Regardless, I do want you all to know what I imagined AFTER The Matrix Revelations for “The End of The Matrix,” so I will write it in about 10 pages and share it… It’s basically “The Matrix Revelations Part 2.”

NEXT 1B — Author’s Commentary on how he imagined the stories for “The Matrix Revelations” AND “The End of The Matrix” (a video in youtube)

NEXT 2A — Season 2 and Ending for The Story of the Earth Sage of The Leaf (everywhere)

NEXT 2B — Heroes of the Survey Corps: Alex Emmerson (in fanfiction dot net, in the other blog, in facebook, but not in this particular blog here)

NEXT 3 — Other new, thought-provoking, and inspiring sci-fi thrillers by Pedro Cristobal… ; ) the best has yet to come ALWAYS ^__^


Scenes After the Credits in The Matrix Revelations (the true ending) / Also, a Teaser for “The End of the Matrix”

The Matrix Revelations (COMPLETE Story + Extras, a truly epic sequel for The Matrix Revolutions)

The Matrix Revelations

(Epic sequel for The Matrix Revolutions with the older Neo as the protagonist)

Teaser Trailer for the movie:


Two refresher videos worth watching before “The Matrix Revelations” (the first appearance of Deus Ex in “The Matrix Revolutions” and the scene with the spoon in “The Matrix”). Both of these matter for The Matrix Revelations…

Deus Ex scene:

The spoon scene:


I also recommend very strongly that you rent and watch the three original Matrix movies, if you think you forgot them. After all, The Matrix Revelations is a true sequel that starts right after the end of The Matrix Revolutions, so, for the greatest impact it is best if you watch those before you read Revelations.

The After-Credits Scene for The Matrix Revelations



100 Soundtracks selected by the author to reflect moments and characters from The Matrix Revelations (the author’s comments from when those were posted are included)

This is a perfect preview for what to expect from the story of The Matrix Revelations. Listen to the soundtracks and read the comments in order. You will see that an epic science-fiction thriller is waiting for you ; )


Music for The Matrix Revelations — Trailer Music #1

This sounds pretty good up to 1:30. I really like the way this sounds for a trailer of this movie, even though the other one I am going to post next sounds like a better fit with what actually happens.


Music for The Matrix Revelations — Trailer Music #2

And here we have it; this is the trailer music that fits best with what does happen:


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #1: Deus Ex’s Theme 1 / “Deus Ex’s Plan”

This fits for the second scene of the movie. The first scene, or the opening scene, is Neo’s final scene from The Matrix Revolutions… and obviously, he makes it—otherwise, there would be no epic story to tell in “Revelations” : p

Deus Ex Machina had a very good reason to keep Neo alive.
You will find out about it in The Matrix Revelations…


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #2: The Trinity Squad’s Theme


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #3: The Trinity Squad’s Assault Theme

This music is perfect for the assault on the building, close to the beginning of the movie…


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #4: Deus Ex’s Theme 2


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #4: Deus Ex’s Theme 2


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #5: The Trinity Squad’s Personal Theme


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #6: Captain Trin’s Theme / “The Other Trinity”

This may not fit a lot with the first part I will post this weekend, but by the time the story is over (it’s 8 episodes long, close to 3 hours in length as a movie), you will see it does fit with what happens to her. The music I choose often reflects the way the character feels; it isn’t necessarily linked with the events only.
By the way, listen to this one until the end; its best part is in the second half. And yes, I think this fits with “Leida Trinity.”


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #7: Neo’s Theme / “Path of the Sixth Chosen”


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #8: “The One”

I knew I was forgetting one of these the other day. This one should have been #5 after #4, based on the order of the events, but hey, it’s not to far away, so here it is.
I would play this music when Neo stops the sentinels during the Trinity Squad’s assault at the beginning…


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #9: The First Base

This is a good theme for the atmosphere present in the first base, which is the first location of the Resistance that Neo sees, after seeing the Trinity Squad’s members without their armors for the first time.


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #10: Deus’s Theme / “The Menace Approaches”

Next part introduces the Resistance and a couple of new characters, including Deus. This “Deus” is not Deus Ex Machina from the Matrix, but obviously, there is a reason why they have a similar name. That and more will be revealed later on.…


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #11: “The Trap”

This music fits for the scene where Commander Yera talks to Deus.


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #12: “Neo’s Realization about Deus”

During the “Deus incident,” Neo figures out something that the others are not seeing. This music fits with that realization.


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #13: Yera Williams’s Theme / “Commander Yera”


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #14: The Main Base’s Theme / “General Xenno’s Base”

This is a good initial theme for their arrival at the Main Base, and it also fits as a “theme #1” for Frank Xenno, the general.


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #15: Frank Xenno’s personal theme

This isn’t a perfect fit, but I like the way it sounds.


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #16: Teen Jack’s theme / “The young inventor”


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #17: The Blue-eyed Girl’s Theme


Music for The Matrix Revelations — # 18a: The White Sphere’s Message


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #18b: Neo’s determination to find the truth

This is an excellent theme for Neo’s determination to find the truth, after the events that unfold at the main base.


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #19: Thomas Anderson’s Message


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #20: Thomas and Aida’s Theme…


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #21: Trin begins to believe in Neo / “Believe”


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #22: Trin’s Flashbacks / “The other Trinity”

This is a good music for when Captain Trin begins to remember her past.


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #23a: Neo vs. Deus

Forget about the vocals. The first three minutes of this music are ideal for “Neo vs. Deus” at the main base.…


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #23 b: Neo vs. Deus

This is another excellent music for the Neo vs. Deus scene at the main base.


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #24: Rodner Smith’s Theme #1 / “Meet Mr. Smith”

Neo finally meets Rodner Smith—the old man from Frank Xenno’s world that looks exactly like Agent Smith. He’s also Thomas Anderson’s nemesis. Obviously, this guy is ideally played by the same actor as the original Agent Smith…


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #25: Rodner Smith’s Theme #2


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #26: The Others

If you don’t hear this just raise the volume. I think this music sounds a little lower than others. And no, I have no comments on this… you will know what I meant by “the others” when part 5 arrives :p Consider this an “audio preview” 😉


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #27: Beginning of the Chase

The beginning of the chase during which the second major clash with Deus occurs. The second big clash is not with Neo though. It is with… you will see 😉


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #28: Matthew and Dayana’s Theme

It’s time to start posting the “character themes” for the other Trinity Squad members, since, their second moment to shine in this story is in part 5.


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #29: Bern’s Theme


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #30: Seraph Cheng’s Theme


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #31: Sheera Williams’s Theme

Considering what happens in part 5, this is a good theme for Sheera Williams, the granddaughter of General Nera Williams, and the daughter of Commander Yera from the first base.


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #32: Keifer Gomez’s Theme

Like I said before, I pretty much imagined Keifer as a “Cid lookalike” so it is no surprise that I even feel that Cid’s theme fits perfectly for Keifer.


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #33: Yan Morphen’s Theme / “For Neo”


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #34: Rodner Smith’s Past


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #35: Seraph and Sheera vs. Deus


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #36: The Trinity Squad vs. Deus

The events of this battle are what made me decide on the specific character themes for some of them, including Sheera, Keifer, and Yan Morphen. This battle takes place in part 5.


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #37: Neo’s Decision


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #38: The Xenno Squad’s Theme / “Frank Xenno’s Secret”

Music for The Matrix Revelations — #39: Return to the Matrix…


Music for The Matrix Revelations — # 39b: Return to the Matrix theme #2 / Neo’s Theme #2…


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #40: Retrieval of the 7th Neo’s Helpers


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #41: Rebirth


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #42: Trainees of the Chosen

This ost fits almost perfectly with what I have in mind…


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #42 b: Training with the Sixth Neo

I knew I was going to post this one eventually because it is one of my favorite soundtracks. Finally, it fits with something… Take a guess at who is going to have the “training with the sixth Neo” :p … That and more is found in the upcoming part 6…


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #43: The New Morpheus vs. Neo (in training)


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #44: Unexpected Outcome

Wait until it goes beyond the 1 minute mark to hear the good part of this soundtrack.


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #45: Neo’s Farewell Words

Start at 0:20 and wait for the part I like better at 0:41.
This fits very well to describe Neo’s feelings when he says his “farewell words” in part 6. What are they and why he says them? Wait until I finish part 6 and you will see : p


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #46: Final Visit to the Oracle


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #47: Return to the City of the Machines

I really like how this sounds :p
Perfect theme for what’s coming in The Matrix Revelations…


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #48: The Yellow Sphere

In part 6, we are going to find out the purpose of that yellow sphere that Deus Ex implanted in Neo’s hand at the beginning…


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #49: Neo and Deus Ex


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #50: Deus Ex freed

When I heard this at the cinema a few weeks ago, my instant reaction was: “I now know a soundtrack that fits with the entire part 7 and, especially, with how it all begins…”
I knew this had to go here since then, and here it is now.
Things are going to get very intense in The Matrix Revelations, so I will hold back posting various soundtracks until part 7 is much closer to the finish line. That way you won’t have any clues of what will happen until it is here. And believe me, a lot will happen pretty fast in part 7. In my opinion, it is the best one out of the first 7 parts, and if you read the other 6, then you can already imagine what that means… The best has yet to come 😉


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #51: Deus vs Deus


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #51.5: Theme of the Other Deuses / “The Unknown Observers”

This should go between #51 and 52, so I will just name it 51.5 and put it here, since I found this music recently.
And yes, the only “deuses” in The Matrix Revelations won’t be Deus and Deus Ex… you’ll see once I post part 7B.


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #52: Deus Ex’s Transformation


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #53: Leida Trinity’s Retaliation


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #54: Screen of the Past


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #55: The Fifth Neo’s Theme / “Path of the Previous Chosen”

This would be the part where we will find out what happened before with the other Neo. Remember that the past of the previous Trinity and the previous Neo wasn’t fully revealed yet. That, among other intense scenes, is what the “clash of wills” from part 7 is all about…


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #55.1: Path of the Fifth Neo (alternate theme)


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #55.2: Attack of the Sentinels…


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #55.3: The Fifth Neo’s Revelation / “The Matrix Reloaded”…


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #55.4: Prelude to the Fifth Neo’s Battle at the City of the Machines…


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #55.5: Neo vs. the Doppelganger Sentinels…


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #56: The Fifth Neo vs Deus Ex (flashback)


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #57: Cyber Neo (INTRO)


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #58: Cyber Neo (BATTLE) / “Neo vs Neo”


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #59: Copy Trinity (INTRO) / Copy Trinity’s Theme


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #60: Copy Trinity (BATTLE)


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #61: The Resistance’s Final Attack


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #62: Frank Xenno (Theme #2)


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #63: Rodner Smith’s Secret Weapon


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #63.5: Cyber Neo and Copy Trinity (alternate theme for both of them)

This has nothing to do with Rodner Smith’s weapon (I say this in case you are reading all of these without reading the story. Copy Trinity and Cyber Neo are not related to Smith.)


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #64: The Unexpected Transformation


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #64.5: Cyber Neo’s Final Answer


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #65: The Final Enemy’s Theme


Music for The Matrix Revelations — # 65a : First Appearance of the Final Enemy / “The deusian anomaly”

I am going to introduce the final enemy for The Matrix Revelations in Part 7D. Who ends up being the final enemy won’t be clear until you read it though… this is just music, it doesn’t tell us who takes that role at the end, but it tells us what we can expect from that character. Just be ready for plot-twisty stuff coming in the final section of Clash of Wills…


Music for The Matrix Revelations — # 65.5 : “Thomas Anderson’s helpers”

Part 7D will have a very brief flashback of the original Thomas Anderson and his group. This music fits with the way I visualized them in my mind.


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #66: Frank Xenno’s Answer

One interesting plot twist and several revelations are in storage for the next scenes in The Matrix Revelations. I’m spoiler-free here so you will find out what those are when I finish and post what comes next. This is just the “background music” that I would pair up with “the moment of truth” for General Frank Xenno, in part 7D.


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #67: The Final Enemy’s Takeover

Just to point it out: the character that is called “the deusian anomaly” in the upcoming part 7d is the final enemy in The Matrix Revelations. Also, I do plan to finish and post this part 7d this upcoming weekend, and yes, the scene that I paired with this “oh crap things are going down” music is included in 7d. Part 7d is the best out of the 4 sections of Clash of Wills without a doubt…


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #68: Deus Maxio’s Theme


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #69: Maxio’s Retaliation Theme / Maxio’s Revelation / “The Matrix Unlocked”

Not only is Deus Maxio going to return, but a big revelation will also take place when he does… I hope no one thought that the “big Deus” from before was going to be “taken out” so easily : p … obviously, more stuff was going to happen later on with Deus, and “later on” starts with 7d…


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #70: The Beginning of the Battle for Thomas Anderson’s World


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #71: Jake Mate

There are going to be some pretty intense moments in part 8…


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #72: Neo and Trinity’s Darkest Hour


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #73: The Grand Revelation

This starts slow and escalates to epic proportions… it is perfect for this kind of epic scene ; )


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #73.5: The grand turning point / “Bending the Spoon”

I find it really funny that this was the first song that popped into my mind when I thought of music to pair up with “the second scene with the spoon,” which is going to take place in the next section that I am going to post. I found it funny because the Pirates and Jack Sparrow don’t have anything to do with this, but I guess this song calls out to be put as background cover for epic stuff lol… it’s great music without a doubt.
So, the title for part 8a was “Jake Mate” and the title for part 8b is going to be “The Grand Turning Point”… I am feeling very good about what I have written so far, so I can say confidently that the best of “The Matrix Revelations” begins with part 8b. And, that is not just because of “the spoon scene”… there is a lot going on in this second half of “The Battle for Thomas Anderson’s World”… You will see… it all starts to fall into place at last, just like I planned it since the beginning… ^_ ^ : p


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #74: The Sixth Neo’s Answer

You can tell that something awesome and inspiring is going to happen when you hear this ; )


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #75: Neo’s Awakening after the Battle for Thomas Anderson’s World

This is going to be good music for the last scene in Part 8b (what is coming next). So 8b not only finishes the grand battle but also shows you what happens with Neo right after that. I imagine that anyone who reads it all up to that point is going to be reeeeally impatient to find out what the final part will bring after that… i would be really impatient too. And obviously, I plan to deliver with a really great ending that will leave everyone (including myself) very satisfied. That’s just the way I like it ; p (because I love planning awesome stories and I love delivering at the end, instead of dropping the ball with a bad ending, like so many stories I have seen before in anime and games, and even in movies and books as well… I will do it differently. At the end, it’s all about crafting a great and valuable experience. That is what matters in life and in stories…)


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #76: The Truth about The Matrix

Interstellar’s main theme has to be the perfect music to pair up with “the truth about the Matrix”… it’s excellent music for mystical sci-fi stuff… so yeah, this is part of what’s coming in part 9A… Oh I can’t wait ^_^ I finally reached the best parts of the first book-length story that I will finish. It’s time for the revelations of the Matrix to be unveiled…


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #77: The End of Maxio’s Mission

Please ignore the pictures attached to the soundtracks. When I post a soundtrack, only the music itself fits with some section or scene for the current story that I am doing (the original picture that had been associated with the soundtrack is from another story that has nothing to do with the one I’m doing, but when the music fits, I grab it anyways : p)

Music for The Matrix Revelations — #78: The Original Team


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #79: The First View of the Matrix (from the outside)


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #80: The End of the Virtual Matrices / Return of the People from the Virtual Matrices


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #81: The Trinity Squad’s Regret

Before the great “final revelation” in Part 9b, some emotional scenes with past characters from the story will take place and this music fits beautifully with all of those.


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #82: The Final Neo

Perfect music for the scene that will introduce the final Neo…


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #83: Nera Williams’s Theme / The Oracle’s theme for her scene at the end


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #84: The Final Revelation

What happens at the end ; ) … as usual, I have a strong tendency to save something special for last, in order to finish stories with a great note (and with happy readers that will be glad they had that experience)…

By the way, 100 thanks to the gifted composer of this music, Thomas Bergersen… This one definitely inspired me for the scene that I call “the final revelation” in The Matrix Revelations.


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #85: The Credits screen for The Matrix Revelations

To make it even more epic and memorable, I would show mini-flashbacks from events in the movie during the credits (as they roll on the left or right side of the screen, the flashbacks can be shown on the other side). That way, the viewers will be reminded of how great it truly was, right after they finish watching it. That would ensure that it becomes a movie-experience that they won’t forget anytime soon. It would probably become one of their all-time favorite sci-fi thrillers, right after they finish watching it.
Naturally, such a movie for “The Matrix Revelations” is not available, but the book is and you can read it here. So the experience already exists here. It just isn’t on a big screen. It is on the pages ; )
Have fun with the unofficial “Matrix 4”
I will repost all the links soon…


Music for The Matrix Revelations — #86: The Extra Scene after the Credits for The Matrix Revelations

You would think that an extra scene after the credits won’t add much after all the epicness went by, but in the case of this story, it will… ; )









The Matrix Revelations (COMPLETE Story + Extras, a truly epic sequel for The Matrix Revolutions)

The Matrix Revelations (Part 9B)—The Ending


Part 9: The Real Answer and the Ending (9A + 9B)

Part 9B: The Ending and the Final Revelation (The Ending)


Before we could see what was about to happen with the boy that looked like Neo and Thomas Anderson, the view went back to show us what was happening with those that we knew from before. We had already forgotten about most of them, but just a glimpse at their faces brought back all the memories that we had of them, before they were taken to the Virtual Matrices at Thomas Anderson’s world… Soon, it struck us like it struck them: they were back. All of them returned…

The people from the First Base were unbelievably happy. They could still remember what happened at their base, before “Deus” arrived and they were taken to the fields of the Matrix. They remembered how they had asked Neo to save them, since they all thought that he was a reincarnation of Thomas Anderson, the hero that created The Resistance that fought against the great threat from the start. And, because of the legends and stories that even their own commander had spread, they all believed that Neo would save them. Therefore, their awakening and the confirmation of their salvation brought the greatest happiness that they had felt in their whole lives. You could see how many of them looked at the sky and thanked Neo for saving them, even though they had not seen what happened with him. Only Leida Trinity truly knew what had happened there…

The commander of the First Base was also deeply moved.

Yera Williams [looking at the sky]: “You were right mom, everything you said about him was true. He was truly a hero and a wonderful person. He didn’t give the impression of being that great when I met him, but I could feel that what you told me about Thomas Anderson was true, and, I trusted that he would be able to help us. And now, I see why you talked that way about him… We are all back because of him… Thank you… Thank you so much Neo…”

The view left the people from the First Base and switched to two men and one woman that had opened and left their pods at the same exact time. They were Seraph, Matthew, and Dayana, three of the members from the Trinity Squad.

Apparently, they were located at a different place that was at another field of pods—which were scattered all around their world.

Everyone was wearing white shirts and white underwear. And they came out pretty clean and neat from their pods, which were not dark and full of glue-like liquids, like the ones that the sixth Neo had seen inside “The Virtual Matrix.” The fields of pods at Thomas Anderson’s world looked much more like fields of endless hibernation stations in floating buildings than like fields of dark cocoons.

Most of the floating buildings had landed on the ground, but the pods were still the same and most of them actually protected the dormant humans inside them.

Matthew, Dayana, and Seraph were shocked at first because they suddenly remembered all the details clearly. Their real lives from Thomas Anderson’s world had been left as far and cloudy memories that looked more like dreams than like the real deal. However, when they returned, they realized that it was the other way around: their cloudy memories from before were the real ones and the ones from the times they had spent at Zion were mere virtual memories of a reality that wasn’t true, even if everyone was connected to it and interacting and living in it with everybody else.

At first, their faces looked thunderstruck, as if they had made a great discovery, but soon, their faces began to change, and the change was deep and sad, as is the change of any amnesiac that remembers something terrible about themselves…

Seraph, Dayana, and Matthew looked around themselves and saw the great happiness in the other people that awakened, but they looked and felt different… They looked at each other and we could see that they were feeling regretful about something, after their memories came back to them…

Matthew: “Master Neo… he was right…”

Seraph: “But…”

Dayana [sounding sadder than the other two]: “We didn’t believe him… and we choose to leave him and stay in the lie when he gave us the choice of coming back to this world with him…”

Seraph: “I should have chosen the pill when he offered it to me, but, I don’t know… I… I just couldn’t believe it back then…”

Matthew: “Why couldn’t we believe that he was right about this as well…”

Dayana: “We were still inside the Matrix, but it felt so real…”

Seraph [finally losing the sad mood]: “Matthew, where is Yan? We have to find him!”

Matthew: “You mean Morpheus? He stopped going by the name Yan ever since he met that old guy at Zion that looked a lot like him. I hope we find him soon.”

Dayana [hopeful]: “There’s a lot that we have to find after the wrong choice that we made. If he is still here and well, we need to find master Neo and apologize to him. But, let’s look for Yan first.”

Seraph: “Let’s go. Let’s find both of them, Neo and Yan… I know that they are alive. I can feel it…”

While Seraph, Matthew, and Dayana began to walk away from the pods, together, and determined to find their former master, Neo, and their teammate, Yan Morphen, the view left them and took us to another location with many other pods and people that had awakened…

The other location was at the top floor of one of the many floating buildings.

The view centered on a single pod, which was the one where Yan Morphen was sleeping.

When he woken up and left the pod in his white t-shirt and underwear, he looked as thunderstruck as the others had looked… but… as the memories came back to him, we could tell that his regret was far greater. He, out of all of them, had been the one that always believed the most in Neo, from the start and until the very end. Yet, even he chose to stay behind with the others at the Zion of the Virtual Matrix.

Yan began to grab his own face with his left hand, covering his eyes, while he closed them and pressed them together strongly.

Yan Morphen (the final Morpheus): “What did I do? I, I was so close to choosing the right pill and coming back here with Neo, but I didn’t do it. I left him behind. We all did… after everything he did for us… he trained us… No… he enlightened all of us, and we turned our back on him at the end.”

Yan walked up to the border of the floating building and he finally remembered every single bit of his real past memories, as he saw a place of Thomas Anderson’s world that he had seen before, as a soldier of the Resistance.

Yan Morphen: “I am sorry Neo, but I will make it up to you. If you are here I will find you. You must know how sorry I really feel about my past choice…”

Yan Morphen’s regret was serious. Unlike the others, he almost dropped a tear. However, he began to move instead. He began to find his path to the lower floors of the fallen building. He had to find out what had happened with Neo and the others… He was alone, but he knew that all the others had to be there, in other locations…

Then, the view left Yan Morphen and went to someone that we had not seen in a while…

It was Keifer Gomez and he had awakened at the special lab of pods that was inside a secluded part of Rodner Smith’s city…

Keifer wasted no time. He quickly left his pod and ran to the outside of the city. He could barely believe it, since he had missed most of what happened, but he wasn’t a fool. If the menace of “Deus” and the Matrix had been stopped and everyone was free again, it meant that Neo and the other members of the Trinity Squad had been successful. Somehow, Neo, the Resistance, and his great teammates had found a way to win, despite their near-impossible odds.

Unlike the others, Keifer’s happiness began to increase and increase. He was feeling like most of the people that were freed. He was overjoyed. A big dream of his had come true… Since the day when he lost his wife and his newborn son, all he cared about was stopping the menace that took them and ending the threat of the Matrix. Nothing else mattered to him…

Keifer [while running towards the exit of Rodner Smith’s city and seeing what was going on everywhere]: “That ancient clone of that ancient bastard that started it all! He really did it!! I didn’t believe in him… I never even thought that he could really do it! But, I can feel it now. This must have been his doing! Neo and the others… they figured out a way to win!!! The menace was defeated!!! You guys!! I must find all of you!!! You need to know how happy I am for our victory!!”

Keifer was never seen that happy, but, the best news for him had not happened yet…

Shortly after he left the city and came close to one of the fields of pods that had been scattered on the ground, there was a woman that caught his attention and made him stop cold on his tracks.

She was wearing clothes that were very familiar to him, so she was very easy to notice among the hundreds of people. The woman was wearing the same clothes that his wife was using the day that he last saw her and she was helping a young man to exit his pod, after 26 years of sleeping in the Virtual Matrix. The young man looked a lot like Keifer.

Keifer could barely believe it when he saw it. In his mind, he had already lost them. It had been years since the possibility of seeing them again had left him, even in dreams…

This was something that he wasn’t prepared for.

The woman turned around and stayed still as soon as she saw him.

He overcame his initial shock and ran towards them.

He hugged her and the young man—who was most likely his newborn son from 26 years before. He didn’t know what to say but he hugged them both desperately, as if he was afraid of losing them again.

Keifer Gomez, the toughest looking soldier from the original Trinity Squad, broke into tears and yelled, as he looked at the sky.

Keifer: “Thank you Neo!!! Thank you! Thank you so much!!! I will find a way to repay you for bringing them back!! I’m sorry I didn’t believe it was possible!! I was a fool!! I should have believed in you!!”

The people around them were also moved by what happened, and so were we…

After Keifer’s incredibly moving scene, the view left that location and showed us a couple of soldiers with no remainders of their armors and a boy. The survivors of the Resistance had regained their consciousness and were awakened, but the view was centered on those three in particular.

They were the couple and the young inventor that Neo met at the Main Base. He had promised them that he would do everything he could to get rid of the menace at their world, and he kept his word…

The young Jack and the couple were looking at the sky, overjoyed at the realization of what had happened. The hero that looked like the guy in the statue at the Temple of the Idols had kept his word. He managed to do it.

Jack pulled one of the mini trackers from his pocket and he remembered how he gave one of those to Neo at the beginning. He, like many others, felt the need to thank him.

Jack [looking up at the sky, as if Neo was there]: “Thank you Neo. I knew you were The One.”

With the sight of the happy boy, the view changed locations once more.

Finally, it went back to the boy that looked like Neo and Thomas Anderson…

He was at a different place from everybody else and his location looked like the most dangerous one by far. The pods there were falling down and breaking apart, from the twentieth floor of the building and all the way down to the rocky ground at the bottom. Strangely, the pods were all empty, except for one of them. The boy’s pod was the only one that was occupied. It definitely looked as if it had been moved from somewhere else and placed there…

When he woke up, he quickly noticed that he was in danger—even before he could see any sign of it. He knew that a fall was possible, even before he opened his pod.

And, although he didn’t say it, the way he moved and how careful and strategic he was showed that he could feel the upcoming dangers.

Therefore, he avoided them all.

The boy left the pod and jumped to a safer spot just a couple of seconds before his pod fell down and broke in pieces at the bottom. He slowly made his way down from the twentieth floor of a broken building of pods that was falling apart. Along the way, he didn’t step on places that ended up falling very soon after, and he took a route that was not hammered by other pods that were falling down.

The surprising thing was that he never even looked up to see what to expect. He knew which route was the safer one by instinct. He avoided danger so many times on the way down that it was clear that the boy could feel it, even if he wasn’t seeing it. He had some sort of “sixth sense” of perception and anticipation…

When he reached the ground, safely, he saw a green lizard that was trying to escape as well. Then, all of a sudden, he jumped down, grabbed the lizard with one hand, and threw himself out of there. A second after, the spot where the lizard was standing was totally destroyed by a pod that fell there.

It was unbelievable.

The boy let go of the lizard and the lizard looked back at him for a while, as if it knew that the boy had saved him.

Young boy: “You are welcome. Now you can go your way and I will have to find my way out of this place. Unfortunately, I am not so clear about what route to take next.”

The lizard left and the view showed us that the location was, in fact, surrounded by a huge desert!!

The boy walked to a safe location, far from the pods and close to the beginning of the desert.

He saw that a stranger was approaching him. The stranger was wearing a brown cloak that kept his or her identity hidden.

We couldn’t see who it was until the person talked, a couple of minutes before reaching the final Neo.

Nera Williams [behind the brown hood and the cloak]: “It’s been a long time and I have met all the Neo’s, but… I never met him as a young boy. My dear Thomas, I can’t wait to see what you were like at that age, and I can’t wait to finally finish the grand plan that we put in motion that day… Finally, we are getting to the end.”

The woman behind the cloak smiled as she approached the boy.

The boy, on the other hand, didn’t look like he trusted the individual that was getting closer and closer to him.

The Oracle removed the hood from the cloak and revealed herself.

Nera Williams [looking cheerful]: “Hello there my boy. What is your name?”

Young boy [uneasy]: “My name is Thomas. Thomas Anderson.”

Nera: “Why are you here all alone? Where is your family?”

Thomas: “I… I don’t remember anything.”

Nera: “But you do remember your name, don’t you? That’s a good place to start.”

Thomas: “Who are you and why are you here?”

Nera: “I came to rescue any survivor from this place, but it looks like you are the only one. I am going to take you to the closest town, which is a much safer place than this. Let’s go. Follow me.”

Thomas: “I shouldn’t go with unknown old ladies.”

Nera Williams [smiling]: “Really?? Who told you that?”

Thomas [sounding too wise for a ten-year-old]: “My common sense.”

Nera Williams [still smiling]: “What a smart young boy… well, you can follow me from far away to a shelter with food and people that can help you, or, you can stay here in this empty and dangerous place with no food and with plenty of hazards. Ask your common sense about that one… And look around. You won’t survive here for too long.”

Kid Thomas [quiet]: “…”

The young Thomas looked around and he could see that the place was quite dangerous indeed. He could not stay there.

The old lady didn’t say anything else and she smiled one more time—as if she already knew him from before.

Then, she turned around and began to walk towards another location.

Thomas thought about it, but, he eventually decided that it really was best for him to follow her. And so, he did follow her, as she intended…

When they left that place and began to walk in the desert, the view left them and it went back to Captain Leida Trinity, at the location where the grand clash between Neo, Maxio, and Deus Ex had taken place.

Leida noticed that the blue-eyed girl that had helped to save Neo (when she herself couldn’t) was waking up too. It seemed like the girl was dead before, but apparently, she was still alive.

Leida walked towards the girl and helped her to stand up from the ground.

Leida [worried]: “Are you alright??”

Blue-eyed girl [sounding a little weak]: “I think so…”

Leida: “What you did was very brave. It must have given Neo the strength to save us.”

The blue-eyed girl coughed badly. She clearly wasn’t well, but at least she was alive.

Leida: “What is your name?”

The girl coughed and then she answered.

The Blue-eyed Girl: “My name is Aida. Aida Trinity.”

Suddenly, the look on Captain Leida’s face changed drastically.

She looked at the girl and it was clear that this girl looked a lot like her.

Could it be possible that this little girl was the seventh Trinity?

Indeed, it wasn’t just possible. It made perfect sense.

For any other person, that name wouldn’t have made any difference. But Leida, like Neo, had received the message from Thomas Anderson and the original Aida Trinity, so she knew that there were other Neo’s and other Trinity’s, in addition to herself.

Leida remembered the words of Aida’s hologram and Thomas Anderson’s words. They had warned them about the future: Neo would need Trinity’s help to succeed. However, they never specified if they were talking about Leida or about another Trinity. Leida and Neo simply supposed that the fifth Trinity was the only one available to help him, because the sixth was already dead. No one ever thought that the final Trinity was already in the picture from a very early stage…

Leida felt a grand and deep emotion. She looked around and she could see the happiness in other people that were waking up, but she was looking overwhelmed rather than happy. The answer was too clear for her: if the blue-eyed girl was the next Trinity, then, Thomas Anderson’s plan was still in motion and that could only mean that they were still in the Matrix. Then, humankind had not been saved yet, and Neo’s path to the end of the Matrix wasn’t over… All the people there believed that the Matrix had finally ended, but Leida knew that they were still in it…

Leida was almost about to cry when the girl held her hand tight.

Aida: “Are you ok mam? I feel a little better now, but you don’t seem well.”

Leida [calming down]: “Don’t worry. I’ve had a very long day and too many battles. I need to rest.”

Leida [thoughtful]: “Had you met him before?”

Aida: “Mr. Neo? Yes, we talked at the Plaza of the Idols and he promised that he would bring back my parents and end the menace.”

Leida: “Did you tell him your name?”

Aida: “No, but he didn’t ask.”

Leida stayed quiet.

Aida [referring to Neo]: “He saved us, didn’t he?”

Leida: “Yes. He saved us.”

Aida: “Will we see him again?”

Leida breathed in and out slowly, as she closed and opened her yes; and then, she answered with great certainty.

Leida: “I’m sure that we will see him again… but, he may be different.”

Aida [puzzled]: “How so?”

Leida: “He will be someone else, someone new, yet very similar. He may be young, like you are.”

Aida: “Will the young Neo help us like the old one did?”

Leida Trinity: “Yes… that is what he always does… but first, we will have to find him…”

Aida held Captain Trinity’s hand once again.

Leida [reinvigorated]: “It’s been a long day for me, but, I have finally found my way…

Come with me Aida… We will find him again, together, and we will finish what he started…”

The view showed Captain Leida Trinity and the blue-eyed girl leaving together as the Sun began to set in the horizon…

Then, the view changed and we saw the young Thomas and the Oracle (Nera Williams) arriving at a new camp where many people were building houses. We also got a glimpse of other people that were arriving at the same location from the opposite direction.

They were Leida and Aida Trinity…

The screen split in half, showing the young Trinity in one half and the young Thomas Anderson in the other.

The revelations of the Matrix were not over and the path to its true end had just begun…


NEXT— The After-Credits Scene for The Matrix Revelations (an extra revelation after the ending)

The Matrix Revelations (Part 9B)—The Ending

The Matrix Revelations (Part 9A)



Part 9: The Real Answer and the Ending (9A + 9B)


Part 9A: The Truth About The Matrix (The Real Answer)


Deus Maxio placed Rodner Smith on the yellow platform of codes where he was standing. It looked very high in the sky, but Rodner remained on the platform as if he had been placed on the solid ground below.

Maxio looked like he had made up his mind completely about revealing the truth about the Matrix to Neo, and Mr. Smith was still unconscious. Rodner didn’t even move a finger. He looked like he wasn’t going to wake up anytime soon.

Neo could not wait. He knew that there was little that he could do beyond that point if he didn’t know what was really happening, or, what was the truth about the Matrix and why it worked that way. Only then he would be able to figure out how everyone could be saved from it…

When Maxio left Rodner Smith’s body on the yellow platform, Neo asked what he considered the most important question.

Neo [standing just four meters away from Maxio, on the same large platform]: “Deus Maxio, I am eager to know everything that you can tell me, but first, there is something that I must know. It is something that worried me as much as Deus Ex himself.

Is the Matrix a cyber simulation of reality or is it the true reality? Is Thomas Anderson’s world real or not real?”

Maxio [after standing up and leaving Rodner behind]: “Depending on how you want to see it, it is both. The Matrix, or everything you know, is both the true reality and a simulated reality as well.”

Neo [showing determination to understand and obtain the truth]: “How is that possible? How can something be real if it is also an artificial simulation? During the battle with Deus Ex, I saw the white codes of the Matrix in everything and in everyone. How can such a thing be anything other than a pure cybernetic simulation? How can you call it the real reality if it was created at your world?”

Maxio [scratching his white bald head and looking surprised]: “No living entity inside the Matrix should have been able to see the hidden white layers of codes that underlie everything here. This… this is something that I wasn’t told. You are definitely not a normal occurrence in the system.”

Neo [polite with a friendly smile but still pushing for the answers]: “You haven’t answered my question. How can the Matrix be real and not real at the same time? If that is what you know, you must know how to explain it as well.”

Maxio: “A clone is real, but he or she is not the true original version at the same time. The clone was created through artificial means and isn’t even supposed to exist, but it does exist and it is real after its creation takes place. In addition, he or she was created using various cybernetic tools in a laboratory. With that logic, it would be correct to say that a clone is still a simulation of the original, even if it is real. Furthermore, the clone is not a mere simulation either. It is as alive, as true, as real, and as important as the original can be. Something similar is true about the Matrix, but it is far more complex than a simple clone, of course.”

Maxio could tell that Neo was not satisfied with his little allegory. He wanted the clear truth—all of it. Therefore, Maxio continued.

Maxio: “If you want to know the truth and to understand why the Matrix is what it is, then, I must tell you why it was created and why I was sent here…”

Maxio closed his eyes, took a deep breath, and opened them again.

You could tell that he was going to reveal something that meant a lot to him.

Maxio [with a reminiscent voice]: “Eons ago, before I was born, a great war broke out in my world. The main world of the deuses was divided into those that were willing to make themselves part machine and part deusian and those that wanted to remain 100% deusian. The side of the deusianoid robots and the hybrids, which were part machine and part deusian, was led by rulers that were not concerned about the greater good. Their faction was what started all the problems for the rest of us. Luckily, we had the better weapons and the better scientists, so, the war was won by the normal deusians and the survivors from the hybrid faction were separated from the rest of the population and forced to go into exile.

Needless to say, those survivors kept causing more conflicts later on, but, they were never able to defeat us, despite their stronger bodies, because we had a technological advantage in weapons and tactics of battle.

That was the case until something unexpected appeared out of nowhere and took our existence by storm. A terrible virus, known as the Lethal DNA (LDNA) virus, appeared and began to kill us with alarming speed and ease. Nothing worked. Despite how advanced we were, we simply couldn’t find a way to hold it back.

Then, our scientists came to the conclusion that the virus was too perfect, too effective, and too fast to be a natural occurrence, so, it had to be a biological weapon that had been designed to destroy us.

Naturally, the deusians wanted to blame the deusanoids and their faction, but, it turned out that the LDNA virus was destroying them as well. They had brains that were like ours and part of their bodies were also like ours, so, the virus could kill them too, and it did. At that point, the leader from their faction came and begged to join forces with the rest of us, thinking that we already had a cure for the menace. It was a desperate time when the survival of our species was put in question.

However, when the solar systems and all the planets that we had occupied combined their forces and our most gifted minds and all our resources came together, a possible solution for the LDNA’s threat was found.

The virus was using an unknown DNA code from the early stages of our species to destroy us. Somehow, the ancient code had something that was a natural killer for our evolved DNA. The answer, or the way to save our species, was destroying the virus with its own killer recipe and using it to find a definitive cure for it.

The problem, of course, was that we didn’t have and could not get the full DNA code of our ancient ancestors. Wars, conflicts, egotistical villains, and many more omens destroyed our species’ history and the records of our past more than once, during the dozens of millenniums that followed after we left our original home planet. And, since we had changed so much, reconstructing our ancient biological codes wasn’t as simple as backtracking from our current ones. The way our DNA had evolved wasn’t something that we could predict with a computer model either.

Essentially, the only way to get a perfect copy of our ancient ancestor’s DNA was to travel back in time and to get a sample of them.”

Neo: “Is that why you came here?”

Maxio: “No. I had not been born yet and the Matrix had not been created either. However, that was the event that led to the creation of the Matrix at the main world of the deuses. You see… we, as incredibly advanced as we were, still couldn’t find any way to travel back in time. Even our best minds couldn’t do it, but they still had to find some way to get the original DNA from our past ancestors. They had to find another way. And they did; otherwise, we would have been wiped out by the LDNA virus, the Matrix would not exist, and I wouldn’t be here today.

They didn’t know enough to break the rules of time, but they already knew enough about biology and about the universe to be able to recreate it and all its life forms from scratch. We knew so much about the universe at that point that we could literally make a real copy of it; and that was exactly what they did. They decided that the only way we had to get our hands on the original ancestors and their DNA was to replicate our universe in a miniature size and from the very beginning of its existence. Then, they would determine the correct point in time, or the right moment in the development of the miniature universe, and they would locate the species that was closest to us and our DNA sequence.

They began the experiment and they located our galaxy in the mini-universe. Then, they had to run an automatic assessment of all the species and their DNAs, since, we didn’t know which one was our true ancestor for sure. This led them to our original home planet, within the Milky Way galaxy, which was the Earth.”

Neo [thoughtful]: “So, the Matrix is this microscopic copy of your universe and the deuses are us, thousands of years later?”

Maxio: “Not quite Neo. You are right about us, even though we can’t be called humans anymore, but, you are not right about the Matrix… Unfortunately, creating a copy of our universe where our same ancient ancestors could be reborn, exactly as they were in our original universe, wasn’t that simple. Creating a perfect copy of our universe under controlled laboratory conditions was much easier said than done. Our scientists succeeded at creating similar copies that were approximations, which were only 50% like our real universe. And that wasn’t good enough, because those didn’t result in our same original ancestors. The exact DNA codes that we needed either didn’t exist in those imperfect versions of the ancient humans, or they were too different to work well against the LDNA virus. We needed the real thing and only an ideal copy of our universe that was a 100% match of everything in our universe was going to give us that. Only a 100% perfect clone would yield the same exact ancestors with the same exact DNA codes that we needed.

Therefore, the brightest deuses had to figure out a way to generate such a perfect copy of our universe.

They created a giant ecological sphere where an incredible number of microscopic copies of our universe would be created nonstop. However, they would not be created at random. They made a very smart algorithm that governed how each new batch of universes was created, based on the data gathered from the previous ones, so that the new batches could be better copies with more things in common with the original universe where we lived. They used the best technology and nearly all the resources that we had, in order to ensure that an universe that was a perfect match to ours would be created before the LDNA virus could wipe out our race.

That giant sphere where the microscopic universes were generated was called The Matrix and it was placed at a city that was later called The City of The Matrix. The ancients, or the people from your time, had a different name for what we call The Matrix however. You called it the multiverse.”

Neo [looking a little overwhelmed and full of questions]: “But, how could they create a finite sphere that would house an infinite number of universes? And… wouldn’t those universes take too long to form? How could they possibly monitor everything? And, what about the white codes of the Matrix that I saw in everything and everyone?”

Maxio [sounding incredibly wise for someone that was a deusian equivalent of Matthew]: “You answered one of your questions Neo. The white codes that you saw in everything everywhere are how they monitored everything automatically in every universe. Those didn’t exist in our original universe, but these copies were created in a laboratory, so it was possible to add that hidden layer of codes into their natural fabric, without changing anything else and without letting any of the living beings there know about the existence of those hidden codes that we used to monitor everything automatically.

And obviously, the number of universes that exist in the Matrix is not infinite. It is a very large number indeed, but it does have an end. The great sphere known as The Matrix does not contain infinite approximations of our universe. And even though all the mini-universes in it are real, they were still a planned creation in a lab, just like a clone, so, the deusian scientists figured out how to modify their progression of time without altering any other aspect in them. Their new progression of time ensured that all new universes would get to the point where we needed them to be in just a matter of hours for us, which are much longer than hours for you, of course.”

Neo: “But such a complex and cyber-looking mechanism inside a real environment… how could they develop such a thing and make it possible?”

Maxio: “Don’t ask me. I wasn’t among the geniuses that created the Matrix. I can only tell you its story and why I’m here. The right deus for the most complex answers would not be me; it would be the leader of the group that sent me here, who was the youngest member of the last team that worked in the creation and maintenance of the Matrix.”

Neo: “You mean… Neo?”

Maxio: “Yes, Deus Neo is the one that gave me this mission.”

Neo: “Why didn’t he come here himself?”

Maxio: “Although he was and is a great deusian leader, he is not young anymore and he is far too important for our team to put him at risk. I chose to take this mission in his place.”

Neo: “So what was your mission? Was it to gather the DNA data that you needed? And, why did you have to come here of all places, didn’t you have a multitude of perfect copies of your universe in the Matrix?”

Maxio: “No and no. We only managed to generate one perfect copy of our universe in the Matrix that had gazillions of them. Millions of them were a 99.999999% match, but only one resulted in a perfect 100%. This universe is that one, but, we had to keep them all anyways, because for this one to live, the great ecological sphere and all the others could not be removed.

And, I am not here because of the virus. The virus was just the reason why we were forced to create the Matrix. We already got the DNA samples and the LDNA virus was already stopped, thanks to those and many years ago, when I was still an infant. The younger Deus Neo and another leader known as Deus T were the ones that entered the Matrix at that time and got the DNA samples.”

Neo [puzzled]: “Then, why are you here? If the great virus was already stopped, why did you have to return to the Matrix?”

Maxio: “This universe within the Matrix is a real simulation of our life, as it existed at first, when it wasn’t simulated. It is a flawless recreation of our past, with all its events and all its forms of life. In other words, you are the perfect remake of our true ancestors, so, you are much more than just an experiment.

Unfortunately, not everyone saw it that way. And years after the cure was found, many deuses wished to end and erase the Matrix, or to use it for other purposes, such as trying to manipulate our future, since we could observe you and see what events would happen next, after you reach the point when you become us. As you might imagine, historians, scientists, politicians, and many others were delighted with those possible uses for the many universes that were 99.9999% matches of our own. They all wanted to turn the Matrix into a tool to get what they wanted.

However, the Grand Council of the Deuses didn’t allow it. The incredible number of miniature copies of our universe that were created to save our species wasn’t going to be turned into a circus for the convenience of others. It was meant to be used for the greater good only.

Unfortunately, something about that matter has changed recently. Some powerful groups within the Council will soon be given the full authority to end the Matrix and all the microscopic universes in it, including this one. All life forms in the Matrix will end. Our last chance to stop them is to prove the importance of saving our ancestors to the leaders of the Council. Deus Neo and his followers are the only ones that want to support that cause. And to get that proof, we needed to send someone back here to obtain a small sample of humans that can be used to show the Council that you are capable of much more than they think, which means that saving you from the Matrix is important for us, if they ever choose to destroy it.

My mission was simple. I was given the task of finding such a sample. It had to be a group of ancient humans that encompassed all the things that the ancient humans were capable of. In other words, it had to be a small group that could represent what all of humanity was capable of at this point in time.

I tested many groups, and found many hostile ancients along the way. However, I never found any sample that was more than an 80% match for what we needed. And eventually, something unexpected happened. A human had a weapon that was capable of neutralizing me and using me. As you already know, it was Architect Smith, and he used me to do terrible things to this world.

I’m sorry about what I did Neo, but now I must finish the mission that I came here for and I must leave for good.”

Neo: “Wait Maxio… What is going to happen to all the other universes that were not the 100% match?”

Maxio: “Nothing of course. They will never know that they are part of the Matrix and they will never know that they exist because of us. All their life forms, including their imperfect versions of our past human ancestors, will just continue their path through life without ever knowing those great truths. That is, if the Matrix does not end. If it ends, then they will all cease to exist as well. And if my group fails at saving you, then this, the 100% match of our reality, will be gone as well.”

Suddenly, everything was starting to make sense for Neo. Thomas Anderson’s plan to save everyone from the Matrix and the “key codes” that were sent to him by Deus Neo (the unknown messenger with “codename Neo”) were fitting like perfect pieces of a puzzle. Obviously, The One had a much greater purpose than just stopping Rodner Smith and ending the Virtual Matrices that had been created at Thomas Anderson’s world…

Neo was eager to help Deus Maxio, but he definitely didn’t see what was about to happen next…

Neo: “What do you plan to do to get your sample for the Council? I will help you in any way I can.”

Maxio [looking a little bittersweet]: “I already decided that. I’m sorry Neo, but you can’t help me any longer. I’m glad that you were here because without you I would have failed miserably, but now I must return and I need to take the best sample possible, no matter the cost. I’m glad that you know the truth about the Matrix, because then, you will be able to understand why I had to do this.”

Maxio’s change of mood concerned Neo and he quickly tried to get much closer to Maxio, but he couldn’t move on the platform.

When Neo looked down, he realized that the yellow platform was acting as a force field that was capable of holding him in place for some unknown amount of time.

Neo [worried]: “Wait! What are you going to do for your sample!? Why did you do this to me?? I thought that you were my ally!!”

Maxio had already turned around and he was walking away from Neo, but he stopped, he looked back, and he answered.

Maxio: “I had to create a force that could hold you for a while. That’s why I didn’t wake you up right away, after your battle with Deus Ex. As you are at the moment, I can’t hold you back if you want to stop me Neo, but I only need some time. That yellow platform will hold you long enough for me to do what must be done. By now you should know that I am your ally and I am mankind’s ally. I, like you, want to save the ancient humans at all costs. And that is why I’m doing this. The best possible sample that I can take at this point is everyone here. I don’t have time to look for a better sample now. I have the best chances of taking back the best sample if I take all the survivors that are present on this battlefield. I know that many of them are your friends and you care about them. So, if your human feelings interfered, you would stop me, but I believe this may be the only way to save your kind now. We must sacrifice the survivors of the Resistance to save the rest.”

Despite his bittersweet look, Maxio didn’t hold back and he didn’t waste any time.

He suddenly began to create a great yellow sphere that would be capable of taking all the survivors from the surface in just a few minutes.

Captain Leida Trinity raised her upper body from the ground and she could see what was happening above. She was the first person to see because she had not been affected by the codes that put everyone to sleep for Deus Ex’s takeover. And nobody else was awake there. Even the blue-eyed girl (who had not been affected by Deus Ex’s codes either) was lying on the ground, without signs of life.

Leida [looking at Neo and Maxio]: “What? What’s going on!? I thought that he was on Neo’s side!! He was fighting on our side!! God give me a rocket launcher so that I can bomb the bastard once and for all!! I knew that he wasn’t good news. I shouldn’t have trusted him after he made Matthew’s face appear on his!!”

Still, she was exhausted, and she had no armor and no weapons anymore, so there wasn’t much that she could do. However, she saw what happened, and since no one else saw it, that was a very significant moment for her.

Neo: “Maxio wait!! There has to be a better way than taking all the people that fought for us at Thomas Anderson’s world!! We still have Thomas Anderson’s plan!! It will save us!”

Maxio: “I’m sorry Neo, but I can’t place my trust in someone else’s plan. Right now, finishing my mission by taking the best sample available is the best chance we have. It will take me just a few minutes and we will all be gone for good. I’m sorry that I must say good bye to you like this. At least, I know that the remaining humans will be safe with someone like you here.”

Time was running out and Neo was realizing that he wasn’t going to regain his control over the Matrix right away. What could he do to stop Maxio from taking everyone as his sample? In the middle of his difficult situation and with little time left, Neo found an answer when he looked at Rodner Smith…

Neo [looking like he had just figured something out]: “Maxio! You are not taking the best sample possible!! If you want the smallest sample of what mankind is capable of, you have to take Rodner Smith and me as your sample!!”

Deus Maxio had not thought about that, but something about it just felt right. He thought about it for half a minute and he went back to Neo’s location, but, he didn’t let go of the platform’s hold over Neo.

Maxio [having some doubts]: “How can you be so sure that only the two of you will make a more accurate sample of mankind’s full potential than all the survivors of the Resistance put together?”

Neo [sounding just as enlightened as he did when he unlocked the power of the white codes]: “We are the extreme opposites of what the human conscience has created so far. Rodner almost did more harm than all the previous dictators in history combined. He was probably the smartest one as well. He even fooled hundreds of geniuses at his paradise city, making them think that they lived in heaven, even though he was just using them for his projects. He only cared about himself and about power. The rest of humankind was just a tool for him. Love was never a part of who he was. On the other hand, Thomas Anderson and I were the complete opposites of him. Love, justice, finding the answers, and helping everyone in the process were the forces that guided us. It was never about power for us. On the contrary, we both wanted to liberate mankind from the Matrix, instead of using the Matrix for ourselves.

Take us as your sample. I will help you and your leader to prove that we are worth saving, even if the deuses don’t need the Matrix anymore.”

Deus Maxio checked the compatibility of Neo and Rodner Smith to use them as a single sample of everything that the ancient humans were capable of. The quick result that the yellow codes brought back was very striking for Maxio. He never found any sample—regardless of the number of people that he included—with more than 80% of coverage. Yet, Neo and Mr. Smith by themselves resulted in a 99% coverage of what the ancient humans were capable of. It really was as if they were the perfect opposites of the same coin and the best examples available for each side of the coin. It was correct to say that there was nothing evil about Neo and there was nothing good about Rodner. They were such a perfect pair of opposites that Maxio felt that it could not be a coincidence. Clearly, he had not been given all the answers when Deus Neo sent him to the Matrix to complete his important mission… Either way, Maxio knew that he was not going to find a better sample to demonstrate what the ancient humans could do and how valuable they truly were.

Besides, the fact that Neo could do things that even the deuses couldn’t do (by manipulating the hidden codes within the Matrix) convinced Maxio about one thing: it wasn’t an arbitrary event. Neo was a predestined part of the perfect sample that he was supposed to get; Maxio just wasn’t given any information about that, but he could sense that it was meant to be.

By then, it was clear that Deus Neo (Maxio’s leader) had been the one that sent the key data about the Matrix to Thomas Anderson; and he had had something to do with the creation of “The One” as well… Neo could already feel it. He just didn’t have any proof about it.

However, the identity of the deusian hand that helped Rodner Smith to make the Virtual Matrices and to create Deus Ex (the deusian entity that could bend the rules of reality in the Matrix) was still a mystery… It seemed like Smith had used Maxio to create everything himself, but the truth was that Maxio wasn’t powerful enough to make even one the two Virtual Matrices on his own. After all, he was just a deus that could bend some rules inside the Matrix; in the original world, he wasn’t a godly being…

Ultimately, Maxio chose to free Neo and to take him and Rodner Smith as his perfect sample.

Leida saw what happened and even though she couldn’t hear what they were saying, she could tell that Maxio changed his mind because of what Neo told him.

Maxio erased the large sphere of codes and began to create a new smaller sphere around Rodner, Neo, and himself.

Neo looked down at the battlefield, knowing that it was likely to be the last time that he would see the place again. He caught a glimpse of Leida Trinity and his heart became incredibly happy for a second, but, he was still concerned about the future.

Neo [to Maxio]: “What is going to happen to this world now? Will they be ok after we leave?”

Maxio: “You freed everyone from the Virtual Matrices during the battle with Deus Ex. It will take some time, but everyone will wake up and they will be able to leave the capsules that had them dreaming and living a virtual life. The two Virtual Matrices that had been developed in this world will be completely gone, thanks to what you did. Everyone in this world will come back to the Real Matrix now. And there won’t be green codes anymore… However, they won’t know that they are still in the Matrix either. For them, this will be the real world, the real reality, and there won’t be anything else beyond it.”

Neo [thoughtful]: “…”

Neo began to remember some of Thomas Anderson’s words and he understood that he would have to continue Thomas Anderson’s plan, even at the world of the deuses.

Thomas Anderson’s hologram [in Neo’s reminiscence]: “You will continue with our plan and take it to its very end, until The One ends the Matrix and saves us all…”

Neo [thinking out loud]: “I see… when Thomas Anderson said ‘The One,’ he was never talking about me. He was referring to the seventh Neo, who will surely be the last one. Yet, he knew that what I could do was still the key to make The One successful, just like what the fifth Neo did for me, because at that point in the plan, I was the last Neo, so I was The One at that point… I understand now. It is not over yet. There is more to be done, until the last Neo can save everyone at last, from the true Matrix.”

Neo looked down one final time. He knew that the Resistance’s survivors and Thomas Anderson’s world had been saved from the Virtual Matrices, but there was still more to be done to save them.

Maxio: “We must leave now. Are you ready?”

Neo [certain]: “Yes.”

Maxio: “The option to come back to the Matrix may not exist after we return to the main deusian world, where this whole multiverse is just a city in size. Are you sure that you want to do this? You will definitely help us to save the ancients, but we may not be able to bring you back.”

Neo [still looking at the battlefield, not at Maxio]: “You said it yourself. This is the best way and you need the best sample. And I am ready to be part of that sample. My control over the Matrix should also help you to make a statement at the Council of the Deuses.”

At that point, Deus Maxio lifted Rodner Smith and he extended his left hand to Neo. Neo grabbed the hand and the sphere around them began to turn into white codes and it began to disappear, as it teleported them away to another location.

Leida did not hear them, but she could tell what happened there.

After she saw Neo disappear, she felt an incredible sorrow (almost as if she had been the Trinity that loved him). The menace was gone; the Matrix was gone; but Neo was also gone.

Even though it was all over and they had won, Leida couldn’t look as if she had a grand victory.

She couldn’t help it and she cried as she spoke, all alone, in the middle of the battlefield of asleep soldiers and humanoid robots.

Leida Trinity [truly heartfelt]: “Thank you Neo. Thank you for everything you did for us. You were a true hero, like Thomas Anderson.”

Then, the view changed from the Earth of the Matrix to the white deusian laboratory where Maxio had been, from the start of his mission.

Apparently, his true self had not been the one in the Matrix, but rather, it was an approximate copy of himself at a different size and with different properties that were what allowed him to do godly things inside the Matrix.

Deus Neo and the female deus that had been worried about Maxio were still there and they could not be happier when they realized that the protective codes were being removed and the connection was asking for a return password, meaning that Maxio had been successful in the mission, despite the unknown obstacle that he had found.

They prepared the computers to bring him back and they quickly noticed that the system was preparing two other smaller spheres because Maxio wasn’t coming back alone. He was bringing two other entities from the Matrix.

Deus Neo noticed right away that one of the two entities was too similar to Thomas Anderson. At that point, he recognized that the time had come…

Deus Neo stepped away from the deusian computers and he used a small device on his hand to connect to other similar devices. It was as if he was about to make some sort of “group call.”

Deus Neo [voice similar to Neo’s voice / talking to the other female deus that was already present]: “Daya, take care of bringing back your brother and our guests safely. I will bring back the rest of the original team. Our most important mission is about to start. This mission isn’t just for the ancients, it’s also important for our own future.”

Deus Daya [voice similar to Dayana’s voice]: “I’m on it!”

Deus Neo communicated with five other devices using his. When he sent the call, five other deuses received the live holographic message in their devices.

Deus Neo: “I need you all back to the location of the secret lab as soon as possible. Maxio has succeeded and he is coming back from the Matrix, but now we have something else to worry about. My suspicions about everything were right, so that means that we must be ready for what is about to happen next. I need you all here.”

While all the deuses looked similar, in terms of skin color and hairless heads, their weapons and clothing differentiated them greatly. You could tell who they were based on what they were wearing.

We saw the receivers of the message very briefly, before they returned to Deus Neo.

First male deus [same voice as Frank Xeno / carrying a powerful looking rifle-like weapon]: “Roger! I’ll be back!”

Second male deus [same voice as Yan Morphen from the Trinity Squad / wearing white clothes that looked like Maxio’s vest]: “I’ll be there as fast as I can Neo.”

Third male deus [same voice as Seraph from the Trinity Squad / wearing futuristic-looking samurai-style clothes and carrying what looked like light sabers]: “I’m on my way! I’ll be there before you know it!”

First female deus [same voice as the Oracle or Nera Williams’s voice / wearing a head cover and normal clothing / apparently, standing at a desert]: “So I was right wasn’t I? I was the first that told you that this was going to happen! It’s about to happen then. I will be there as soon as I can!”

Second female deus [same voice as Leida Trinity / wearing clothes that resembled the sixth Trinity’s clothes but these were light silver rather than black]: “Give me a minute. I’ll make sure that Ida is safe and I will join you and the others.”

The view stayed with the last team member, who wasn’t alone.

There was a smaller deusian child close to her, and there was a deusian robot with them as well.

The child was looking at something that had not been shown yet, but, when she heard her mother, she looked back at her.

Deusian child [same voice as the blue-eyed girl]: “Mom, did dad make another one of those secret and dangerous toys?”

Female Deus [same voice as Trinity]: “He probably did, but you shouldn’t worry about them; just remember, they are not toys, they are important experiments that we have to protect.”

Deusian Robot [same robotic voice as Bern from the Trinity Squad]: “Mrs. Idana, is it safe for us and for Ida to be here?”

Deus Idana: “It still is Bert, but it’s very likely that everything will change soon. Whatever happens, stay by Ida’s side no matter what. If for any reason Neo and I are not with her, you must be there to protect her.”

Deusanoid Robot Bert: “I am and I will be by her side mam.”

Deus Idana: “I want you to take her to a safer location if you notice that anything dangerous can happen.”

Bert: “I will.”

The robot was taller than them and looked stronger, but he behaved and talked like any of them. His physical form was the only aspect that showed that he was a robot.

The deusian Trinity turned around and walked towards a small white facility that was just half a mile away from them. She suddenly pressed something on her silver suit and she instantly teleported closer to the facility. She appeared right in front of the white door that she was seeing from far away and it opened for her, as if it had recognized who she was.

She walked in and we saw that it was the same lab where Maxio had been connected to the Matrix.

At that exact moment, the other four deuses teleported themselves to that spot as well, and they appeared at the center of the lab, between Deus Neo and Deus Idana.

Right after that, Deus Daya finished bringing back Maxio and the two small ancient humans from their spheres. All three of them were still unconscious, but they were fine.

Neo and Rodner Smith had a different size with respect to the deuses, when they were in their original world. They were as long as their hands, meaning that the real deuses were the equivalent of giant humans, in terms of size. Yet, they had changed, so they didn’t look exactly as humans anymore.

With everyone present, the deusian Neo wasted no time.

Deus Neo: “As I thought before, we are not the first ones that hacked our way into the Matrix. And now, we finally know why the other unknown source hacked in. Unlike us, they, he, she, or it didn’t do it for a good cause. They led to the creation of experimental Cyber Matrices of a complex nature and they also developed an experimental deusian being that was far more powerful than any deusian ever, even though it was born inside the Matrix and not here. Maxio and the hacked ancient entity that we helped to create faced this being and nearly lost their lives, even though both of them had access to breaking the rules of the Matrix. I fear that we now have greater problems to worry about than just saving the ancients from the inevitable shut down of the Matrix.

Now that Maxio has returned, we need to present our proof to the Council and convince them about saving the ancients, even if they choose to destroy the Matrix. But, we also have to show them the new threat that is emerging and that may represent just as big of a catastrophe as the LDNA virus once did. If the unknown hackers find a way to replicate that powerful deusian entity from the Matrix in this world, a virus may not be the leading cause for our extinction anymore. The problem is that such a thing was already accomplished inside the Matrix, when this being’s abilities remained intact, after it was transferred from the virtual worlds to the real world in the Matrix. There is only one step further to figure out how to bring such a thing here.

The Council must know this and we must be ready. We also have to protect Maxio and our ancient guests, since they are the only real proof that we have of what happened in the Matrix. And they may be our only way to prove how important the ancients really are.

Idana, Neda, Xenor, Morpheo, Serach, and Daya, will you help me to achieve these goals?”

Deus Neda [same voice as the Oracle]: “You know we will. We have been in this together for a long time.”

Deus Idana [same voice as Trinity]: “This is the time to complete what we set out to finish years ago.”

Deus Xenor [same voice as Frank Xeno]: “Count with me. I’ll make sure that none of you lose your heads while playing heroes at the Council. We’ve come this far, so I am not going to let it happen at the end.”

Deus Morpheo [same voice as Yan Morphen and Morpheus]: “I believe in you and I will follow you until the end.”

Deus Serach [same voice as Seraph]: “I’ll be with you guys. My blades have been at the service of justice, always. And by now you are like my family. I love you all [looking at Daya specifically].”

Deus Daya [with Dayana’s voice]: “Maxio and I volunteered to fight for your cause and that won’t change now, even if it becomes more dangerous than before.”

Deus Neo [sounding pretty confident]: “Then, let’s continue and finish what we started. We shall save the ancients at last and end the new threat as well.”

Then, the view changed from Deus Neo’s group at the lab to the deusian child, Ida.

At last, the view turned around Ida and the robot and we could see what they were looking at with so much attention, before Neo’s call was received.

They were looking at the Matrix, apparently, from a deserted location that also had the secret lab. The Matrix was a giant ecological sphere that was protected by an even larger transparent square that covered its surroundings. It was still quite visible from there. You could tell from the movements and the colors that the sphere was “alive” in the inside. The inside had a seemingly endless number of colored bubbles that were pushed together, like the hundreds of transparent eggs that many fish make for reproduction. The billions of bubble-like thingies were the similar universes, of course.

The deusian girl, Ida, had no idea of what each of those bubbles contained, but even at her young age, she could already feel that they were important.

The Matrix looked both majestic and frightening from their location. It was the greatest biological and scientific achievement that their species had produced. It was what saved them from extinction and what would bring their next greatest troubles as well…

Meanwhile, in Thomas Anderson’s world (inside the single flawless universal copy that existed inside the Matrix) everyone began to awaken and the pods that kept them linked to the Virtual Matrices started to open automatically.

We could see many familiar faces from before; among them were all the people from the First Base and their brave commander (Yera Williams, the daughter of Nera Williams); each of the members from the Trinity Squad, except Sheera, Bern, and Leida; and all the survivors from the Resistance…

Throughout their world we could see how all the places that had millions of capsules began to “wake up,” as the pods opened and the people awakened, realizing that everything that they knew had been a dream in a virtual realm.

At the same time, those that had not been sleeping—like the people at Rodner Smith’s city—also awakened because they saw what was happening around their city and they realized that they had lived in a lie as well, even if they weren’t sleeping like all the others. They finally realized the truth of the world around them…

Suddenly, the scenes of the people of the world were left behind and the camera focused on a single pod, in a dangerous-looking location at a desolate area. The pod had a young boy that looked strikingly similar to Neo and Thomas Anderson in their younger days.

Finally, he began to move his fingers and he opened his eyes…

The final Neo had just awakened, but he wasn’t in a safe place. His entire pod was about to fall down a great distance…
