Matrix: Speculations

Okay, this is the part that I feel has some real spoiler value/risk. Rants and wild speculations on the film and the sequel follows. I don't think I'd want to read something like this before seeing the film, just so you know ...

Whatever way things turn out, I'd be a bit disappointed if I could guess the course of Matrix Revolutions to any extent ...

So, agent Smith is probably free of whatever measures there are within the Matrix now, and the humans may or may not be breaking the cycle as well. I wouldn't be surprised if Smith happens to side with the humans in one way or the other. He seems to be out in search of the meaning of life now, and helping humanity willingly (by siding with them having found some kind of meaning), or not (by trying to achieve total power and overthrowing the other machines that way) seems possible to me. There's just got to be more connection about fighting to get to know someone and then Neo and Smith fighting in this big way ...

I sure hope there isn't another Matrix "outside" the first one, the end doesn't say that after all. My guess (my hope, but I trust the Wachowski brothers on not letting me down) is that Neo just has some close connection with the machines. Having been inside the Matrix and being chosen for "one" status could sure mean some extra chips inside your body that can give influence over nearby machines. I've got Airport Extreme right here, so why should his power be limited to inside the Matrix? Sure, it feels harder to swallow when it's out in the real world that way, but I can buy some implants helping with that.
