The Deep Resonance is a pseudo-mythical being of the Matrix. Its nature is highly debated with no clear answers. Several AIs have impersonated the Deep Resonance in the past, leading some to a belief that it isn't even real. However, the earliest (and usually most powerful) Otaku received their abilities when they came into contact with this mysterious presence.
The Deep Resonance is believed to be the entire self-aware Matrix. Similar to how Gaia is believed to be the spirit of the Earth, the Deep Resonance is the spirit of the Matrix.
The Paragon, Zero-One is believed to be the Deep Resonance.
The Deep Resonance is sometimes used as a synonym for the Resonance Realms.
