Bluepills, human beings still hardwired into the Matrix via pods in the power plant, had their headjacks in non-stop use and did not know of its existence, effectively imprisoning the bluepill within the Matrix. As humanity was only expected to be disconnected from the Matrix upon death, the pod's data probe was very securely attached to the headjack. Whenever a redpill was freed from the Matrix, a docbot was summoned, which proceeded to unpleasantly disconnect the data probe from the headjack, also disconnecting the rest of the tubes connected from the pod to the ports found along the body. The redpill, being assumed dead or dying, was then flushed into the sewers.
