The following dialog is taken from the movie The.Matrix.Reloaded.2003:
Councillor: ...What is control?
Neo: If we wanted, we could shut these machines down.
Councillor: Of course. That's it. You hit it. That's control, isn't it? If we wanted, we could smash them to bits. Although if we did, we'd have to consider...what would happen to our lights...our heats, our air.
Neo: So we need machines and they need us. Is that your point, councillor?
Councillor: No. No point. Old men like me don't bother with making points. There's no point.
Neo: Is that why there are no young men on the Council?
Councillor: Good point.
Neo: Why don't you tell me what's on your mind, councillor.
Councillor: There is so much in this world... that I do not understand. See that machine? It has something to do with recycling our water supply. I have absolutely no idea how it works. But I do understand the reason for it to work. I have absolutely no idea how you are able to do some of the things you do. But I believe there's a reason for that as well. I only hope we understand that reason before it's too late.
I find the bold part pretty confusing. I don't see the logic behind it.
Why does Councillor say he doesn't like to make points?
And why does Neo respond by saying "no young men on the Council"?
And why does Neo feel that Councillor is holding out on him?
