this is something that i just heard in passing. but i heard that the end of the 1st matrix, where he's on the phone, could actually be considered the end of the 3rd. where neo is dead in the real world, but alive in the matrix. somethign about the date on the trace at the end. also, i heard that they did it that way (leave it open) so they could ahve the Matrix Online...as a massively multiplayer online rpg. i dunno if it's true, but it's what i heard.//
