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.

Get books by some of our contributors (Jacking In To The Matrix Franchise, Like a Splinter in Your Mind: The Philosophy Behind the Matrix Trilogy & Beyond the Matrix: Revolutions and Revelations) for yourself today!

 
Did You Know?

The end scene in the first Matrix film when 'Wake Up' by Rage Against the Machine is playing and Neo flies into the air is the same intersection that is used in the third film for the scene when Agent Smith and Neo slam into the ground causing a crater. If you look closely, you can see the phone booth Neo used to make his call go flying as Smith and Neo crash into the ground.
