Is there any content from the extended world of The Matrix that suggests if Cypher was initially suspected to be The One?
When Cypher and Neo have a conversation, this is what he says:
So can I ask you something? Did he tell you why he did it? Why you're here? Jesus! What a mind job. So you're here to save the world. What do you say to something like that? A little piece of advice. You see an agent... you do what we do. Run. You run your ass off.
This makes me wonder if Cypher was told the exact same thing and it turned out that he was pulled out by mistake. He didn't turn out to be The One and hence Cypher wants his life back? Is there any material that talks about this?
