The matrix movies were actually sort of the opposite: you got digitalized so your body could used by the AI rather than you got digitalized so you could use the AI as your God. Oddly enough, the results seem to be roughly the same -- which I think suggests there is something unexamined about the whole idea of being digitalized vs being AI. If you are digitilized you are the AI -- perhaps that's the less of the Matrix.
