Elevator to the Analyst Office Please
As we posted in our Introductory article in the Knowledge Base, the spiritual emanations that the characters represented in the movies are ‘neutral’ in essence. How they manifest within creation may seem ‘good’ or ‘bad’ from our perspective.
The ‘secret’ to the Matrix story of redemption is that ultimately, everything serves to get the humans “back to the Source.” In THAT sense, there is no ‘difference’ between characters like Smith, the Merovingian and the Analyst in The Matrix Resurrections. When Neo (and others) encounters these ‘barriers,’ they only serve to advance him along the Path of the One. (See our post on Consciousness Barriers.)
As we showed in our article on the Worlds of Existence, the highest of the three lowest levels that make up ‘Creation’ is that associated with the Oracle. From this level, freed humans were able to interact with her regarding what their purpose was in dealing with the Matrix and program/machine worlds.
All of the Oracle’s advice, as she said to Neo in Reloaded, is directed toward what she cares about — ‘the future.’ (As she also said, “Everything that has a beginning, has an end.”) This implies that there is a specific purpose to the direction she gives each person for their own path.
Note: In kabbalah, Binah/Understanding (the Oracle) relates to the future and Chokhmah/Wisdom (the Architect) relates to the past. The Analyst’s mastery over both these aspects of ‘time’ in The Matrix Resurrections is another indication of the confluence of the two within him.
As the concepts of ‘purpose’ and ‘path’ are ‘specific’ restrict options, they relate to the idea of boundaries. This aspect of setting boundaries in the Matrix is a function of the emanation of “Binah/Understanding” (the head of the “left side of restriction”) which is represented by the Oracle in the Matrix story.
The Oracle appears in each of the first three movies, which relate to the three worlds WITHIN Creation and the three lower levels of the soul in the trilogy (see chart above), as we show in the Knowledge Base and discussed in the first article in this series.
As we are now entering the ‘unified’ fourth world of existence (from the bottom-up) which is existence OUTSIDE of Creation, those aspects of differentiation dissolve – as does the distinct role of the Oracle. The aspects of restriction and boundaries relate only to the three lower worlds of Creation.
We saw that the Oracle does not appear as a separate entity in The Matrix Resurrections. This isn’t saying what she represents is missing, however. We will get to that in a moment.
This fourth level is the one associated with the ‘creator’ of the Matrix and program worlds – the Architect. It is only toward the end of The Matrix Resurrections that the character of the Analyst discloses the Architect was his predecessor.
The Analyst Goes Back to the Future
Returning to the original Architect’s discussion with Neo in Matrix Reloaded, we find the former attributed the ability to connect to and manage the humans, to the Oracle:
Thus the answer was stumbled upon by another – an intuitive program initially created to investigate certain aspects of the human psyche… As I was saying, she stumbled upon a solution whereby nearly 99% of all test subjects accepted the program, as long as they were given a choice, even if they were only aware of the choice at a near unconscious level.
In The Matrix Resurrections, the Analyst describes his relationship with the humans in ways that he not only contrasts to his predecessor but is similar to the Oracle and her close connection to how humans think and feel:
“Now, my predecessor loved precision. His Matrix was all fussy facts and equations. He hated the human mind. So he never bothered to realize that you don’t give a shit about facts. It’s all about fiction. The only world that matters is the one in here. And you people believe the craziest shit. Why? What validates and makes your fictions real? Feelings. … You ever wonder why you have nightmares? Why your own brain tortures you? It’s actually us, maximizing your output… Here’s the thing about feelings. They’re so much easier to control than facts. Turns out, in my Matrix, the worse we treat you, the more we manipulate you, the more energy you produce. … And, the best part, zero resistance. People stay in their pods, happier than pigs in shit. The key to it all? You. And her. Quietly yearning for what you don’t have, while dreading losing what you do. For 99.9% of your race, that is the definition of reality. Desire and fear, baby. Just give the people what they want, right?”
The last few sentences are a fascinating commentary on our own world. Many people are certain that they are ‘awake’ to reality, but without an understanding of the spiritual worlds (outside of our own ‘Matrix’) and advancement along our own “path of the soul,” 0ur endeavors circle around ourselves (our ego!) and we fall even further away from the truth.
Kabbalistically, such spiritual stagnation is equivalent to being dead.
Morpheus made this comparison in The Matrix Reloaded:
Then tomorrow we may all be dead, but how would that be different from any other day?
This ‘purging’ of the Oracle is another example of how “things are not as they appear to be in the Matrix. It was an ‘absorption’ of what she represented, into the “composite unity” of the Analyst.
The name of this character, the ‘analyst,’ reflects this. ‘Analyzing’ is a function the Oracle/mother – the attribute ot Understanding/Binah.
The analyst confirmed his composite unity with the Oracle/Binah at the end of the film:
Because I know the system. I know human beings. And I know you.
This may seem tragic from a movie-goer’s perspective, however for the deeper story the Matrix is really conveying, it is as what Morpheus would explain as:
“What happened, happened and couldn’t have happened any other way.”
As we have discussed, the Matrix films are unique in their kabbalistic framework – which includes a timeline and sequence of events that bring redemption to humanity. Thus everything, even what may appear ‘bad’ from our limited perspective, is really for the ‘good.’
Return to the “Not-So-Opposite” World
As we’ve mentioned in other articles, in the Matrix “pre-story,” the ‘desire’ of humans had become one of self-centeredness. This ended up with them being placed into the Matrix, separated from and oblivious to, the worlds beyond that of the Matrix.
This parallels the kabbalistic concept of why we are in this current world – oblivious to and largely separated from the spiritual worlds we were once connected to.
We live in a world of ‘opposites’ that need to be resolved.
In our Knowledge Base article, Everything That Has a Beginning Has an End, we pointed out that within the human population in the Matrix story we find many opposing views:
- There are those who have been freed, while others remain enslaved.
- Among the freed, some believe in the prophecy and “the One,” while others do not.
- While some are seeking to free the rest, as Morpheus said, there are many who will fight to preserve the very system that is enslaving them.
- And of course, there are many views and conflicts within among the population – and within each person.
The path to resolving these is one of connecting this lower (Matrix) world to the highest level of pure singularity where such opposites are completely nullified. This is the goal and meaning of “return to the Source.” (We break this down further in our article, Irreconcilable Differences.)
The Matrix world of ‘otherness’ and ‘opposites’ moves toward the singularity of the Source in The Matrix Resurrections. At this fourth level, that of the Architect/Analyst, things that used to be seen as opposites, are now coming together. We are moving away from what the Matrix story calls a ‘binary’ view of reality.
Thus, we see the ‘consolidation’ between the “father and mother” of the Matrix as this article presented.
Where is Neo in all of this? As we mentioned in our November 2020 Knowledge Base article, The One as the Messiah:
The messiah will thus be a unifier of opposites. He will bring about the unification of the spiritual realms and our physical world.
“Moshiach and His Effect on the World,” Yitzi Hurwitz
(We offer a deeper look into what Neo unified in our article on gematria in the Matrix.)
The analyst ended with one peculiar statement:
“You think you hold all the cards, because you can do whatever you want in this world. … But here’s the thing. The sheeple aren’t going anywhere. They like my world.”
The Architect may indeed be the most powerful force within the World of Existence. But there is something that is above this.
The original force that preceded existence:
“This is my world! My world!” – Smith/Oracle (Matrix Revolutions)
And we know whose opposite he is. More on this in another article!
