Seeing the Mayor, the Colonel, the Chef and the Butler is actually an illusion?
An illusion crafted so we don’t 100% see them exactly as they really are: Dark, Wilford, Google and the Host.
I mean, three of those guys can manipulate reality. Who’s to say this isn’t a holodeck-style illusion, crafted by the three of them together? And Google could easily fake all sorts of technological things, to support that illusion.
Why? So we can’t see what actually happened.
WE’RE IN THE MATRIX, GUYS. A (MOSTLY) SUPERNATURAL ONE.
