I'm not going to go into detail about my dismally bored disappointment with Michael Bay's Transformers. [Did snap-together transforming sound effects fetishists get enough to work with? Because us ID4-meets-Godzilla-scale, screen-filling apocalyptic battle porn dudes were totally cheated. Even The Clone Wars was better than this.]
But as I was reading up on the AllSpark this morning, I learn that in the TV series, it was the receptacle of all the consciousnesses and fuelled the machines' existence. And it was originally called The Oracle--and also The Matrix.
