Being jacked into the Matrix, anything that happens within the system to your RSI (virtual self) effects your real body. Like that old axiom that dying in a dream will kill you in life.

You get hit = bloody lip
Shot = tore up inside
Break a limb = body spasms to break the bone
Die = die

You get the idea.

By the same token, good things effect your real body the same way...which begs the question: what happens to a person if they're having sex while jacked in? I don't suppose operators wander around with spare towels...

The point, or question, I'm dancing around here is this hypothetical; a ship crashes and its operator and pilot are killed but all the other equipment still fundamentally works. The only survivors of whatever happened are all jacked in. Eating within the Matrix, to some extent, staves off hunger in the actual body but without actual nourishment, the body will eventually start to atrophy and starve.

How long do you suppose they could survive like that?

Have you ever seen Smith like this?

..or this?

...or this?

...or maybe like this?


Then, the Agent Smith Community might be just a place for a Matrix fan like you. It's a place for all Smith, Elrond and Hugo fans to get together and spread the Agent love and have fun.

Here's the link:

Hope to see you there.

Merry Smithmas!

well if you actually think about it if everything in the matrix effects you then eating in the matrix would caus your body to produce so you would never starve
I disagree with ted. I have never seen anything in the story that would indicate that sustenance is gained through eating, only sensory input of taste and smell. Basically, you could eat all you wanted to in the Matrix, but you would die of dehydration after about 7-10 days.
