Neo returning to the source

Remember this little speech from The Matrix Reloaded where your mind probably went into information overload?

Architect: The function of the One is now to return to the Source, allowing a temporary dissemination of the code you carry, reinserting the prime program. After which, you will be required to select from the Matrix 23 individuals - 16 female, 7 male - to rebuild Zion. Failure to comply with this will result in a cataclysmic system crash, killing everyone connected to the Matrix, which, coupled with the extermination of Zion, will ultimately result in the extinction of the entire human race. Neo You won't let it happen. You can't. You need human beings to survive.
This fictional conversation might have been inspired by a school of religious philosophy, born in the third century called Neoplatonism. Neoplatonists believe,
that all people return to the Source. The Source, Absolute or One, is what all things spring from and as a superconsciousness is where all things return. It can be said that all consciousness is wiped clean and returned to a blank slate when returning to the source.
Not what I believe and I flunked Philosophy in college! Just interesting to know where in the heck they might be getting their ideas from.
