Oh my goodness I've just learned a thing about The Matrix that causes it to make a lot more sense: In the original script the humans were used as neural network compute clusters by the Machines and as a crucial component of The Matrix itself.

Which is why humans who were aware of the simulation could control aspects of The Matrix - their minds were part of its foundation.

Unfortunately the test audiences had trouble understanding this concept so the studio changed the human role to "batteries".

I got lucky this week and the weather held out just long enough for me bike to work every day. 103 miles on my bike this week.

Torn between buying a copy of The Raven Tower or placing a hold at the library…

I think today is just going to be a day where I shave a yak or two

First bike ride in to work of 2019. It's always nice to get somewhere under your own steam. 🚴‍♂️
