Oh my goodness I've just learned a thing about The Matrix that causes it to make a lot more sense: In the original script the humans were used as neural network compute clusters by the Machines and as a crucial component of The Matrix itself.
Which is why humans who were aware of the simulation could control aspects of The Matrix - their minds were part of its foundation.
Unfortunately the test audiences had trouble understanding this concept so the studio changed the human role to "batteries".
People says all words are made up. People know nothing. Words live, dormant, seeking use, until they are found, given work.
Words worship their finders, their first users, and bless them to find other words.
"I can't help you," the witch said, "I can only mend what is broken."
"Am I not broken?"
"Your soul is hale, your body is hale. They just don't fit together. It happens."
"Is there nothing you can do?"
"Find someone else with the same complaint, and I'll swap your souls."
