Once the Agent Smith becomes a great threat to human life, the permanence of the machines, Neo travel City Car to offer a deal and eliminate once and for all to this “virus”. But where is that exactly? Where is the famous City of the Machines of Matrix?
WHERE IS THE MACHINE CITIES OF THE TRILOGY OF “THE MATRIX”?
In “The Matrix: Revolutions” Neo follows the advice cryptic s Oracle and adventure to the City of the Machines. There is an audience with Deus Ex Machinaa powerful entity that serves as a leader and pseudo-divinity of the machines. Even though they represent the two sides of the The war of the Machinesthey are both in agreement that we need to cooperate to defeat Smith, what Neo finally manages to do, with a saving of the real world as in the virtual one.
The remaining human called City Car it is called in the most appropriate manner 01or Zero-One. Located in or near the region of the Fertile crescent Moon, Middle Eastthe metropolis technology is the headquarters of the artificial intelligence of agglomeration of the planet.
The location The Fertile Crescent Moon this is important because, in the same way that the area and Mesopotamia in particular, it is known as the “the cradle of civilization” for the humanity, he has also served as the place of birth of the civilization of machines.

But when you consider the events that led up to this future, you could see that the machines and 01 they are very similar to humans, even going so far as to create the messianic prophecy The Choicesomething that could lead to Neo to position yourself as the protagonist of the franchise, and, finally, “win” the war.
