What Is The Matrix Resurrections is All About?
The Matrix series is set in a dystopian future where the machine has taken over the humans after the human-machine war. This war ended any control of humans over the machine, indicating a survival tendency growing in the machines.
The machines have become self-aware, which essentially won them the war. But survival also comes at a price. For their power source, they have to use humans for cultivation. For power cultivation, they put humans into a simulated environment. The people who break apart from their simulations are chased or, for a better word for emphasis, hunted by their mechanical overlords inside as well as outside the forced simulation.
It is essentially remarkable to watch how these machines which do not have any sentient knowledge use humans as a means of survival. Taking the evolutionary process a little bit further.
