Seldomly Asked Questions: Laughing Smith

Why does Smith laugh like a lunatic after taking over The Oracle?

Not only does Smith have the Oracle’s sight, he now has complete control of the entire Matrix since the Oracle is the Prime Program (see Matrix System: Prime Program). Smith also sees himself standing over Neo and beating him, although he can’t see what happens next because it involves a choice that Neo does not understand, which is exactly what the Oracle knew when she gave herself up to Smith so easily.
