He explains that in reality, there had been a war in which humans lost to intelligent machines in which humans attacked the machines’ access to solar energy and the machines responded by artificially harvesting and connecting humans from birth to a simulation of the 1999 world, called “the Matrix”, in order to use their bioelectricity as a substitute power source.
