What Tyndall has to say
Seen from a distance, the City's Downtown is a tuft of glass and steel stalks
sprouting from the gray canyons toward the gray sky. Even as a bluepill I feared
to go there. As with most of us, the deep and intuitive wrongness--falseness--of
the Matrix creeped through my mind even then. Downtown was not a place for a
person whose thoughts did not echo the billboards and television commercials.
After I was awakened I discovered that my fear was well founded, and something
you should take to heart. The power and control of the Machines over the Matrix
emanates from Downtown, flowing through the freeways, electrical network, sewers,
and other means. I will tell you of the area, but it will be some time before
you should dare to venture there.
