I've re-watched the Matrix films recently and I'm confused about the scene in the restaurant with the Merovingian.
He's talking with Neo when the film cuts to a woman eating a cake. I've found the bit from the script. (source: wikiquote)
I have sent her dessert, a very special dessert. I wrote it myself. It starts so simply, each line of the program creating a new effect, just like poetry. First, a rush... heat... her heart flutters. You can see it, Neo, yes? She does not understand why - is it the wine? No. What is it then, what is the reason? And soon it does not matter, soon the why and the reason are gone, and all that matters is the feeling itself. This is the nature of the universe. We struggle against it, we fight to deny it, but it is of course pretense, it is a lie. Beneath our poised appearance, the truth is we are completely out of control. Causality. There is no escape from it, we are forever slaves to it.
He wrote the cake himself? Is it a virus like Agent Smith? I'm really confused. Is he trying to 'hack' the woman with the cake?
