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?
