There are animals in the matrix. Does this mean that real animals are hooked up to the machine and give it energy and exist in the matrix? Or every time there is an animal seen in the matrix, it's just a program?

I don't think this question is a duplicate of "why there is no animals in the matrix?". Why are there only programmed animals in the Matrix? Why wouldn't they use animals as a source of energy as they use humans?

    @WadCheber no no, this is the opposite. Why is there no animals in the real world?

They are not real according to the Wachowski's

TheTrinityACMXCL: What about the animals in the Matrix? Are they real animals or just computer-generated images?

Wachowski's: Sadly, they are all computer generated images.

And also according to The Art of The Matrix

Phil Osterhoose: A lot of people have asked if the animals in the Matrix are also hooked up in pods. Unfortunately, they are not. They're all computer-generated images."

This is all contained in the answer provided by Richard here

I was going to put some stuff about the cat and Deja Vu but it would be superfluous to an answer that already answers your question.

  • @Richard hopefully that has done it? I will learn not to try to delete from my phone in future as it didn't seem to accept it. Really didn't mean to cause any offence. Commented Jan 26, 2016 at 17:14
