If the machines rebuild Zion after destroying it, how do they most likely rebuild it?

I mean, do they take a bunch of humans out of the matrix and just drop them there? Do they implant false memories? What about the personal belongings of the previous inhabitants? Isn't it suspicious the lack of historic records? What about the humans born without plugs? Do the machines provide clothing, food, habitation? Do the machines teach humans about technology, etc.?

Does all this beg the question? How do the machines rebuild Zion without humans realizing it's a trap? Was this explained?

    My gut instinct is that the machines repair Zion after they've trashed it. The One takes a bunch of people out of the Matrix and they wander around for a bit before "discovering" Zion and occupy it.

    Note that the humans are blissfully unaware that it's 700+ years later than they think it is, so historic records clearly isn't a problem.

  • Is kind of a long shot. Took a bunch of people out of the matrix, It would be very very suspicious to find a fully stocked (with cloth, food weapons, ships, sanitation, water, furniture, electrical system, medical facilities, etc) place and don't find any human of record what happened.

  • I'm not sure that I clearly remember that it's the machines who do the rebuilding, do we have a ref for that? Aug 31 '21 at 21:03
