It is never mentioned what the theory behind self-substantiation is at any part of the series, but speculation at the nature of the case, in that Kid willingly let himself go, suggests that self-substantiation is achieved as a result of bridging the vital gap of the mind in its relaxed state to perceive the actual reality through either logic or faith, much as one would be aware of having a dream and recognizing its inconsistencies to the point where one would awaken. It would therefore most likely have an effect similar to what is encountered upon consuming the "Red Pill", in providing the necessary stimulation needed for removal from the Matrix in order to "wake up." This is not abnormal, as Dan in the Animatrix short, World Record, manages to achieve this without the use of a Red Pill.
