Matrix, The - Friends, Romans, Countrymen...Lend Me Your Earrings?
This slip-up is during Neo's rest period on their ship when he is recovering from the whole "welcome to the real world" thing after being dumped by the machines down the tubes. I noticed it when he was talking with his new friends on board. He hasn't used his real body his entire life so why does he have an earring hole in his ear? Do the machines make it a habit of piercing the ears of all their "copper top" babies? I'm sure a little bit of makeup would have covered the holes thus fixing this inconsistency.

"Anything that happens to the body in the Matrix happens to the real body." - Wrong. When the little guy ('Mouse', I think he was called) is shot by the police in the Matrix, his body didn't spontaneously develop bullet-holes, did it?

Ok, you all are wrong.... Everything that happens to your body in the matrix does not happen to your body in the real world. Only your mind. So if you get shot, you won't have holes, and if you get your ears peirced, you won't have holes. If you're dead (Your body can't live without a mind.) Morpheus explains the whole thing (if you listen.) I noticed the earring holes also.

One thing is, Mouse has on clothes, and under his clothes he probably has bullet holes there. So, you couldn't see the bullet holes while he was clothed. I don't think that whatever happens in the Matrix happens to your clothes in the real world, heh.

Plus, if the actual piercing didn't change the real body, the healing process would. That would be slow enough for the body to be ably to adapt.

Well maybe the machines DO put hole in the humans ears. p.s. are sure there are holes in his ears?

Remember: Anything that happens to the body in the Matrix happens to the real body so if he had his ears pierced in the Matrix his real ears would also have holes.
