Support The Matrix 101!
The Matrix 101 is a privately funded site, staffed by three volunteers. We dislike advertising but due to the costs of keeping this site up, we've had to start including subtle advertising on the site. Additionally, our partnerships with online stores have become even more important to help fund the site. If you're a fan of the site and want to support it, here are a couple ways: If you're able, consider making a donation using the PayPal button below. Or, use the links in our Get Stuff! section and the buttons below for your online shopping - we receive a small commission for purchases, which goes right back into hosting, design assistance, etc for the site. You can also support us by telling your friends about us, and by submitting content. We're always interested in what you have to say, and all submissions will be read and carefully considered for publication!
Please help us keep The Matrix 101 live and online by contributing in whatever way you can!

Did You Know?
A reason for the 'sixth' One: In the TV show, 'The Prisoner', which contains similar themes to 'Matrix', the main character who seeks to be free from the hidden system of technological control which imprisons him is called 'No. 6'. But in the final episode, the ever-changing 'No. 2' who answers No. 6's repeated question, 'Who is No. 1?' puts the emphasis where it belongs for the first time: 'YOU ARE, No. 6.' (As opposed to 'You are No 6.') Indeed, No. 6 takes the monkey mask off the figure in the No. 1 chair and sees himself. Like Neo, the Prisoner's answer to his quest for freedom has always been within himself, as the Oracle so often tells Neo. Thus, Neo = No. 6, the sixth No. 1, but really, the first One.
