What would you say it is then? Is rebirth part of beast Wars? Or another universe of marvel? That's your opinion. I do not see it that way. And that's also just your opinion. You could say that. But when galvatron tried to install it to his cannon, the ghosts of the autobots where as a plague and drove him away. (Odly though, the matrix accepted scourge to some degree). It's a great question. Remember though that one could ask that about any other transformer life. Or what about teletran one? Was it alive? Why do you think scourge was compatible to some degree...and not galvatron? What special circuitry did he have that galvatron did not? another point: it's interesting that Carly or any others could manipulate circuits to change transformers. Makes one wonder whether circuitry in fact determines choices of transformers. Or maybee sparks with special programs alone are compatible with the matrix? I wonder though.....we both seemed to agree that the matrix is some kind of medium. If so, then who is at the other end of the telephone? And are those ghosts the soul/sparks of transformers? Or are they artificial creations of the matrix itself?
