Mazal Tov: Part of the 1st verse admittedly could be interpreted to sound like "Mazal Tov", but I think that is just an audio perception thing. Besides, it's only part of what's heard; what would the rest of it say/mean if it were Jewish/Latin? (rhetorical question)

Neodämmerung: Interesting that you and ddc mention that. Perhaps it's another clue/red herring on the question of Neo's fate, hence the prayer. Is Neo really dead, or is he in limbo? Can one know for sure? We see him carried off on a barge by a machine, but so what? What's going to happen to him in the custody of the machines? And if he's dead, then where is his Matrix avatar body?

I noticed that while Neo was hauled off, we are briefly shown the 'machine lifeforce'-whatever image, which seems to resemble a menorah. A menorah is supposed to symbolize the 7 days of Creation, but I still don't know what to make of it. Anyone care to interpret that?

Thanks in advance.
