    Why not cows? They are way bigger and their matrix wouldn't need to be as complicated(though I'm not sure why its needed)

    See my OP^^
    Why the fuck did they farm humans when they could have farmed whales?
    And why do they even need a matrix? If it was an energy source thing couldn't you just keep everyone in a coma?

    Would have been a whole different movie if Wacowski sisters wrote it.

    I don't think so. I was under the impression they were purely a power source. If I'm wrong then this thread is :shit:

    Morpheus said it was the body that produced the energy the machines used

    whole crops were lost dummy, remember? They needed choice. Coma = dead and/or no power output.

    well the brain is part of the body right? perhaps the functioning of the body senses in correspondence with the brain hence the matrix that offers the power supply for the robots
