Full Profile of the Creation Matrix

Post by Commander Megatron »

This is it folks the matrix and all that goes with it.... Read on!!

The matrix is an ancient artifact that remains central to cybertronian society to this very day. An object of great power, it is coveted by all factions in the conflict. in addition to its symbolic significance as a marker of leadership, the matrix is the most effective source of new sparks-making it the fount of transformer life.

Matrix mythology:
The mythology-as set forth by the cybertronian council of ancients, who safeguard the passage of the matrix between primes and are believed to furitively pull the strings of the autobot government-is that the matrix is a conduit for the energy of primus, the mythic creator of the cybertronians. it is through this conduit that new life essences are channeled; it is thew source of all sparks, and also the place to which they return upon deactivation, enhancing the power of the matrix by adding their experiences and wisdom to it. the ancients have further espoused the dogma that the matrix,primus and cybertron itself are all intrinsically connected, and that only with the energy unified as a force for order can their race face up to its most fearsome challenge: an impossibly powerful being known as unicron.Though modern day society says that mechanical life sprung up from its own nothingness. Although most view the councils stories of creation as superstition craeted to explain things and maintain order, the average mechanoid still maintains a health dose of reverence for the matrix itself.

Tech Specs
what is known is that the matrix is a n amazing and theoretically limitless energy source, altho noy one yhat can be be harnassed in any standard fashion. its energies have the ability to activaye new cybertronians or enhance existing ones, but they cannot be controlled per se. only beings with an affinity for the matrix can use it to create new life, and it is a very rare occurence indeed for the matrix to directly alter an existing being. this is primarily known to happen when a new prime is chosen; when this occurs, a ceremony takes place in the chamber of ancients to anoint the new autobot leader ans physically pass him the matrix. at this point, depending on an unknown set of criteria , the newleader will be physically enhanced and renamed with a "prime" suffix. in occurences of improper and genetic incompatibility,, ther is no transformation or renaming; in these cases, the interim leader holds the matrix only untilit can be passed onto a more suitable candidate.

and there you have, it a complete profile of the matrix.

Most excellent! You're just jealous of the 'bots having something so cool. BUT... don't forget. We're all brothers under Primus.

I could be TTP.... or as the humans call their primes "mods" :P i vaguely remember that incident, but hey, 'bots and 'cons cooperate amazingly on this board. there's nothing wrong with being nice, megatron, if you are; we tend to make sure you don't run out of energon.

Cos' i wont let it!! in the novel (hardwired) i didn't get any stronger or bigger. it changed the sentinel tho. i think that i may be too far gone for even the matrix to change me now. we would all still get on tho.

Don't forget. It may not be known anywhere else, or suppressed, but you are a brother under primus. even jhiaxus is made of the same stuff.

I've been reading quite a bit, and I'm getting a little confused.

Primus is basically God, and Unicron is basically the devil correct? With this assumption, if the matrix is the essence of Primus, you would think the matrix would pure goodness right?

Well it's not, and I don't understand why. :(

you're trying to make this too analogous to christianity. the matrix is a force of creation, doesn't mean it can only create or empower "good guys". unicron is a force of destruction. he can destroy decepticons, too. like the original movie motto stated: "beyond good. beyond evil."

I can deal with that, but even if you say it's a force of creation, why would it be trying to destroy...

Ah well, nevermind.

The Matrix is an essence, it can be turned to good and evil. Altho no matter what prime can return it to good......

In a way, this comic business is making less sense to me than the cartoon, lol. Like BUSTER having the matrix? What the heck... I'm going to be annoying the piss out of you guys.

basically, what happened is this was before the matrix was decided to be a physical thing. they cover the hole nicely, however, when they explain later that the matrix IS physical. it is the container transformers use to hold the nonphysical part. buster, as a human, obviously reacts differently to holding its power, since his body becomes the vessel, and he is non-transformer. things do eventually work out and make sense, much thanks to the caring hand of our lord simon furman :P
