Didja Know?


This comic strip originally appeared on the official Matrix website in 1999. It was created by the staff of Manex Visual Effects who worked on The Matrix film. 


Characters appearing or mentioned in this story


A Zion woman (unnamed)

Didja Notice?


The story seems to take place on three levels: a failed mission simulation, a dream of the failed mission simulation, and the woman waking up in the real world from the dream of the failed mission simulation.


The child who runs to her at the end of the story indicates the woman did succeed in freeing a child from the fetus fields at some point after her failed simulation.
