When Neo goes to see the Oracle for the first time in the first movie, a 'receptionist' greets Neo and asks him to wait with the other potentials while the Oracle gets ready.
It's revealed that:
The oracle is a program that was meant to balance the Matrix by being the Yin to the Architect's Yang in the second movie, and that she was created to be destroyed by Agent Smith in the third movie.
Why then would she need other Potentials as mentioned in the first movie?
What would their purpose be since she ultimately...
...would be destroyed anyways?
