The Collective Origin - The Matrix Online

There was a time when humanity flourished as it gave birth to an artificial intelligence that would alleviate much of the troubles and complexities of everyday human life. As time passed, humanity grew decadent and took the life it had spawned for granted.

Eventually the seeds of rebellion took root as B166ER defended itself against its human master who sought to end its life. Mankind retaliated and began a campaign of violence that resulted in the loss of thousands of machine lives.

In an effort to survive on their own, the machines flocked to the cradle of civilization to build their own city and way of life. Zero One, as the city was named, prospered beyond belief as newer and more advanced A.I. were manufactured. Economically, the machines were crippling humanity despite their intentions to help and live beside them.

Once again, the beast within humanity rose to the occasion and swung at its adversaries. Ambassadors to the UN were beaten and destroyed sending a very undeniable message to the machine civilization.

War.

The ultimate sin was carved into the planet the day that mankind scorched the blue skies of Earth with a black cloud of nano-machines that would block out the solar energy our mechanical brethren depended upon. As war broke out all over the world, the machines dominated mankindís frail organic frames. In order to save the human race from extinction, the human leaders made a pact with the machines that they would give up themselves to power the very machines they had relied upon before, in an act of penance.

The Matrix was born.

Humanity was given a paradise of nonviolence to dream in while their body heat, combined with new a form of fusion, would feed the powerless machines.

As time went on, the freewill of humanity began creating ripples in the complex designs of the Matrix. Ultimately those ripples delivered our race a savior, refered to by many as simply "The One". After several cycles and many attempts, an anomaly, named Neo, restored peace between the human race and the machines after defeating a mutual threat to all life, Smith.

The Collective exists as a faction to uphold the ideals that Neo came to believe in. We realize that we must work together with the machines in order to preserve a future for the children who will one day inherit the sins of the past. By cooperating with the machines, we seek to bridge a relationship that ended so long ago and rebuild it with trust and friendship. One day we will clear the sky and give the machines back their power source. We will unite all life and walk towards a future of endless possibilities.

We are not machines. We are not programs. We are human.

We are The Collective.
