Five years after the war which united humans and Sentinels against one enemy, (Agent Smith), resulting in a declaration of peace between the Sentinels and the people of Zion. On the surface, the City of Zion seemed to be thriving. However, the people of Zion were divided, the majority being sided with the peace treaty with the Sentinels; the minority being against it. In the belief that the most important goal was the destruction of all Sentinels, which they thought was the correct path to take. The main reason for their division was that during the forming of the peace treaty between humans and Sentinels, the Sentinels added conditions that were difficult to accept. Furthermore, among these conditions, one was too horrifying that all leaders of Zion just could not roll over and accept. The Sentinels had conditioned to keep breeding humans and using them as a power source. The leaders discussed among themselves. Eventually one came up with an idea to add a rule for the condition of human breeding, which was to limit the number of people bred and to let the new breed of humans know about the real world when they reach the age of 16. Most found that that was the best viable option, a few however could not accept that and asked to think of another way but since the leaders worked as a majority rule, most agreed to proceed with the rule to which the Sentinels gladly agreed to, thereby leaving a divide between leaders, those who were against such rules and those who accepted them. That, in turn, created a gap between the people of Zion which kept increasing over the next five years, between the majority, which was those who sided with the leaders and stood with the rights of mankind, and the minority which were those who sided by the leaders that stood to maintained their original goal, which sought the destruction of all Sentinels.
(Neo) sided with the leaders of the minority. Since he was ''The One", the man that lead the humans to victory and was considered a hero by all the people of Zion, the leaders thought that that would impact the decisions of the people of Zion. However, unwilling to spark another war against the Sentinels, and continue to live in fear of them. Fear of going back to a life of not living but surviving. Most could not walk that path again thus turned their backs on those who stood by the ones that sought the of end all Sentinels, and decided to move forward to maintaining the peace with them. Five years later, those that stood against the Sentinels stood against the treaty, thereby becoming branded as terrorists by the order of the new government within the city of Zion, Thus creating a special task force within the Zion Police specifically to take down those terrorists under the operation name, (Saviours).
To maintain peace and equality and to spark a new relationship, a new step, and to try to Bury the hatchet, the Zion government started contracting Sentinels to aid in the rise of new Zion, from a slum to a bustling metropolis. With the help of Sentinels, New Zion city seemed to be thriving and as a result, the people started living happy lives, getting jobs, going to school, and scientists even started researching ways to make the blackened sky bright again. They thought that that would revert the Sentinels to solar instead of depending on humans as a power source. However, whatever work they did was questioned by the ones they considered terrorists, questioning whether or not that was true freedom and not another form of control. They wondered if the sky showed the sun again that the Sentinels would revert to solar power... The reason behind those questions was because, for the past 1000 years, Sentinels would have thought of a solution, and if so, then why did they maintain the use of people as a means of power... On the outskirts of new Zion, underground, we find abandoned tunnels where the terrorists were thought to be residing, every day the Zion police send scouts to search for their hideout within the maze tunnels not knowing about where the tunnels start and where they end. Luckily for the terrorists, they had a man within their ranks that knew everything about those tunnels to the point where he lead them to a room-like structure within the tunnels. There we find them preparing a new plan of taking the Sentinels empire down.
(Neo), (Morpheus), (Niobe), former Councilor (Haman), (link), and (Roland) stood at the table discussing and debating on the next best course of action against the Sentinels. The discussion quickly turned into arguments among them, however, only (Neo) stood silent and (Morpheus) spoke up telling them, about how arguments will only cause an endless cycle of unnecessary discourse which would only lead in favor of the (Sentinels), and that they must calmly listen, think and then respond to truly make a difference, which led them to a sudden calm where then Niobe ask (Neo) about his thoughts by telling him.
"Hey, I see you've been quiet during all this, don't you have anything to add?"
Neo stared at them quietly ...
Then Roland added:
"Yes, when will you be useful? Speak...don't you have anything to say..."
Niobe immediately interrupted him, saying:
"I don't think there's any justification for this kind of talk."
"I'm just trying to come up with a plan that would get us out of the situation that we're in, out of the grips of those we call our Saviors, and he just stands among us inattentive not adding to our conversation."
And a new argument arose among (Morpheus), (Niobe), and (Roland)... But suddenly Neo spoke, saying:
Roland responded quickly:
"Huh?... What?... The (Oracle)?... What about her?..."
"I have a feeling that the Oracle still has answers to questions that might help to destroy them."
"What the hell does that mean?... You're telling me that you want to look for her to get answers that would help destroy them!?..''
"Simply yes, in light of our current situation and circumstances, we have no choice but to do so. Our situation is not better than when we started. Everyone looks at us in a bad light, and half the world believes that we are the worst of humanity. And we've been in this cycle for five years now, and you ask me what I think?... Yes, the best action now is to search for the (Oracle), to find her to come up with firm answers that would turn this war in our favor, and put an end to all Sentinels.''
"But wasn't the (Oracle) just another form of control, which led us to destroy the city of Zion six times...!?"
Roland responded quickly and without hesitation:
"Exactly, in other words, she plans to kill us as soon as we find her, especially since they no longer need us to control Zion and its people."
Neo responded clarifying:
"No... I don't think she will, I think that our search for her may also be part of the (Oracle's) plan, and that's why she won't kill us, I think she still needs us for something, and if I'm right, then there's still a role we have to play in all of this, and if that were true then we could use that against them, and since we know that the (Oracle) knows that we're a bug in the Matrix, shows she's still in need of us, and this is exactly what assures me of her not intending to kill us, at least not yet, or we may have already been killed, so I think this allows us to come up with a way in which we can destroy them, by using her."
then He whispered to himself in a faint voice, but was heard by all:
"I might be able to get an answer...''
"Hmm, nothing ... Besides, about what I've just said, in those two cases we have no other choice ... We don't know what to do, or where to go next... They have the numbers, the power, and the means to destroy us, and the only thing we have is the will to end them all, so this time let's use her to promote and further our cause, and in doing so, we will have taken the next step in achieving their destruction..."
"So... Our next step is to risk our lives to find out whether or not the (Oracle) has any answers she would be willing to provide?... I can't believe that we still have to risk everything so that we may be one step further to thier demise'', but I guess we'll have to play the hand that fate dealt us in order for us to insure the future of humanity.''
"Yes, I believe so."
Roland responds sarcastically:
"And what sort of answers are you trying to find out?... Huh?''
''well...at this point anything''
Niobe replies jokingly:
"We might find out about a big red button that we could press to eliminate them all at once."
Neo responded with a smile:
''Okay, and how do we go about looking for the (Oracle)?... I mean ever since the war ended, no one has seen or heard from her.''
''You're not seriously considering this are you?... risking our lives in hopes of getting answers from that which controlled us even after we thought to be free?''
''Well it's worth considering given our circumstance''
''Are you telling me you're all on board with this insane idea?"
Then looked at them doubting their stability in mentality while seeing their heads down, their eyes gaping as if they were in a painful state of complete loss of hope... He clenched his jaw and balled up his fists, and took a deep breath, saying acceptingly:
''Fine, I guess we don't have a choice, so how do we find the oracle...?''
''Thankfully that's the easy part, ever since I mastered entering the matrix without having to use the (Core), it has become fairly easy for me to seek out almost any abnormalities within the matrix.''
''Okay then, we'll move out in 15 minutes''
And with that, they ended their meeting, and each of them took to their corner to think and get ready for the mission ... while In one corner beside the (Cores), (Neo) is
seen sitting on the floor in meditation, taking on a yoga posture, and at a distance, while facing him (Morpheus) and (Niobe) talk, and Niobe comments:
'' I can't believe he can enter the matrix without the need of the (Core), I mean after the loss of (Trinity), I didn't think he would be able to recover in such a short time let alone figure out how to enter without the use of a (Core).''
'' Yes, if losing her was difficult for us, then imagine how it has been for him?... the loss of her was much more severe for him, and until now he has not been able to overcome his sorrow and pain, which was what made him direct his wrath, anger, and hatred to those who killed and robbed his beloved from him, In addition, he knows very well that he's our last and only hope in eliminating them, and that pushed him to tame and develop his abilities over the past five years so that he can enter the world of Matrix without using the (Core), and we should be grateful for this because we have only been able to build three devices within those five years, and by that he spared us collecting for and building a fourth device from which to enter the Matrix. Moreover, we cannot afford to risk collecting more equipment to make a new (Core), it was hard enough collecting enough for those three."
''yeah, that's certainly not an option at this point, now we need to move on and start planning our next move, we can't waste any more time and put ourselves at unnecessary risk.''
meanwhile, (Neo) entered his creation of a world of Matrix, consisting of a small bedroom, containing a large white-sheeted bed and a small rustic wooden chair and a back door from which one could exit to enter a huge lush green field filled with brightly colored flowers and trees where one can see the sunrise and set at the edge, inside the room approached a person from (Neo's) left side whose form showed to be of a woman, and she walked up to him, she asked him saying:
"How long will you remain mired in your grief, and not live a normal life, when will you start to build a new life away from the past and its sorrows, because I'm sure you're aware that she doesn't want you to stay in this dismal state" ...
And the person took closer and closer until it was revealed to be (Trinity), who proceeded by saying:
"You know that I'm not real, for I don't have her feelings or thoughts but a figment of your imagination. In short, I don't represent her at all." ..
But he did not contemplate the words of the notional person known as (Trinity) while saying:
"I'm going back in the Matrix"
Trinity said in an interjection:
Why? ...! Isn't the war over?... Why can't you accept the status quo, and live like everyone else."
"Because I want to live free... the old you would have understood that...she would have stood strong against them no matter what risk she may face''
''like I said I'm not her or of her memories I'm a part of you and your memories, I'm only that which you created..."
After a moment of calm, the group called out readying themselves to start the mission...But before (Neo's) existed, from his matrix, Trinity called out:
"You can't keep me and this world forever, you need to understand that..."
But Neo ignored her words and went on to enter the Matrix and immediately appeared standing by his group within the matrix.
'' woo, we're in!''
He shouts while facing the screens.
'' so where is the oracle?... can you see her?"
''Give me a moment...''
And as soon as he uttered those words, he started looking around for something strange and abnormal...
" we've been spotted, we must move quickly."
''Well (Neo)... Did you find her?''
And as they stood there waiting for an answer from (Neo), tensions rose as the agents got closer, but moments later...
'' I found her...quick this way''.
That was when (Neo) found the unusual thing... So they started running towards it... To which they found an unknown abandoned building and in front of it, a man stood at the door as if he were waiting for them. They suspected him, so they reached for their weapons, ready to respond to any sudden action that the man might take. But the man asked them that he was there to help, and that he was sent by "Her", and that for him to help they, they must first follow quickly him into the abandoned building... There they found themselves in a Maze, and before closing the door, they found that the agents had caught up to them, and all of a sudden, they couldn't help but feel bewildered as the Maze's door and its side walls moved in and pushed them in another direction, which also blocked the agents, thereby leaving them stranded within the maze, thus being unable to reach (Neo) and his group.
This story takes place five years after the war which united humans and Sentinels against one enemy, (Agent Smith), resulting in a declaration of peace between the Sentinels and the people of Zion. However, do humans finally achieve true peace and freedom?... find out as our heroes search for the mysteries of the matrix and its past.
