Oh my goodness I've just learned a thing about The Matrix that causes it to make a lot more sense: In the original script the humans were used as neural network compute clusters by the Machines and as a crucial component of The Matrix itself.

Which is why humans who were aware of the simulation could control aspects of The Matrix - their minds were part of its foundation.

Unfortunately the test audiences had trouble understanding this concept so the studio changed the human role to "batteries".

TIL that Venus rotates so slowly that if it you were on venus at sunset, you could walk fast enough to keep up with it. You could watch the sunset for as long as you could walk.

But I still am charmed by this idea of strolling along with the sunset.

Just found out there's an analytics company called Thousand Eyes. Presumably their CTO is Dr. Mabuse?
