Reading The Saratoga Post Parade

Do you remember the first time Neo saw the Matrix - that dizzying display of scrolling code?  He saw no rhyme nor reason nor pattern - just a furious loop of unexplainable binary.  With time, though, with experience, and tutelage, he began to see the woman-in-the-red-dress for the trees.  In other words, he figured it out.
