in a way.
before neo walk up he was already reachning for the path of sto.
but he was no where near sts and did not pertain to the life style of regular stss.
he was close to reaching that 1% over the 50/50 neutral zone. just as the people in the world right now that are literally zombified by the material world.
they are not sts and not sto they are neutral; hanging in the middle, doing only that that the body is asking for.
but neo's thirst for the truth, the same thirst that drives those alike us, in these communities, let him to a greater realization.
and the sacrifice was a redemption.
this is jesus in a futuristic setting.
the machines are the romans, wanting to bend those that are under but also not wanting to destroy themselves in the process.
love and light,
