Debunked: The One is not Created - He Comes About on His Own

This debunk assumes you already understand the Matrix System as well as the Conversation between Neo and the Architect.

When Neo speaks to the Architect, the Architect says to Neo early in the conversation:

Your life is the sum of a remainder of an unbalanced equation inherent to the programming of the Matrix. You are the eventuality of an anomaly, which, despite my sincerest efforts, I have been unable to eliminate from what is otherwise a harmony of mathematical precision. While it remains a burden assiduously avoided, it is not unexpected, and thus not beyond a measure of control. Which has led you, inexorably... here.

All of the underlined words above make it sound to some people like Neo is born the way he is as a result of the "nature" of the Matrix, even if the Architect tries to prevent it. However, the words can be taken a completely different way. Read the statement again under a different assumption: that Neo was purposely created by Machines as the only possible solution that will actually solve the problem.

Yes, the statement and many other statements in the conversation can be read both ways. But one statement later in the conversation cannot! There is one and only one way to read this statement:

Your 5 predecessors were, by design, based on a similar predication - a contingent affirmation that was meant to create a profound attachment to the rest of your species, facilitating the function of the One.

Neo was designed. Period.
