Do you know why the Matrix was full of shit?

No, I don't mean "using the energy from the human bodies"
in absence of sunlight, combined with a "form of fusion". 
You can scoff at scientific illiteracy Hollywood think they 
can get away with, but that's only something to make you 
cringe and go "oh well".

It's where they keep the monkeys on pods on fully immersive 
BCIs but where said monkeys still can outreflex beings
that run on solid state, with a conservative timebase
ratio of at leat a million if not a billion.

And here is where suspension of disbelief completely
explodes cartoon gears and springs all over the place. Finis.
