The Matrix has inspired an active online community, of which our site is one example. Accuse us of overgeneralization, but we've found Matrix fans are thoughtful, tolerant, intelligent, and extremely creative. The following submissions from our readers exhibit all of those characteristics and more.

In this section you'll find reader theories for some of the most puzzling scenes in Reloaded and Revolutions, as well as 'big picture' essays on the trilogy as a whole. We're also extremely pleased to present original pieces by the authors of some of your favorite Matrix books.




If you have something you'd like to submit, we'd like to read it. We're interested in theories, interpretations, analysis, humor...heck, just about anything. Check out the pieces that some of your fellow fans have written, and let the inspiration flow! Oh, and once it does, let us know.

Go deeper into each submission category by following the sub-links above.

Did You Know?

A reason for the 'sixth' One: six is the biblical day on which humanity was made, and Neo is in a sense the first 'human'. He is certainly the first 'One' who defeats the system and establishes the basis for freedom. The seventh 'reloading' would then be a 'sabbath': a 'day' of rest, on which the war would be over, or at least paused.
