    Hey Guys I just found your show and think it rox!
    I noticed you guys had trouble groking the animatrix episode “Matriculated.” I had a similar experience when I asked my friends about what they thought and they all found it totally dumb or silly. For me it was the easily my favorite episode! Not only the concept of enlightening a machine intelligence but how they visualized that process itself.

    For me it was very clear that the humans were attempting to teach the machine about itself by first showing it (via self-reflective visualized metaphors) that it can learn about its own self nature (identity). Then by giving the concept of moral hindrance a black goo visual metaphor, they could then extract it from the machine thereby enlightening the machine’s consciousness and giving it a sense of compassion.

    Love the show!
