The Jump program is designed to run in the Construct as a training simulation. The program allows "redpills" to "explore" their ability to manipulate certain parameters of physics (rules) within the Matrix. The Jump Program is similiar to the Sparring Program in that the trainees can explore the rules of physics, but now a psychological barrier, the fear of falling, has been added.
Certain physical constants such as gravity, density and velocity are maintained, but other physical laws are altered to make the program suitable as a training environment. The streets are programmed to negate high-speed impacy, making failure a painful -- but not fatal -- experience.
The Jump Program is a simple urban cityscape consisting of high-rise buildings separated by paved city streets to allow the user(s) to practice jumping from building to building.
- At the time Morpheus is introducing Neo to the program, the crew of the Nebuchadnezzarr are speculating on the success of Neo's pending "first jump". Tank reminds Mouse that "No one has ever made their first jump."
