Do you remember the movie ” The Matrix ” with Laurence Fishburne, Keanu Reaves, and Carrie-Anne Moss?
When it released way back in 1999 I recall enjoying the movie and its underlying message that ‘things’ are not what most people think they are.
Real World vs. False Reality
The analogy of humans who think they are living in the ‘real world’ versus the reality of their enslavement inside ‘pods’ — while ‘the system’ feeds of them — projecting a false world, a false reality, a false truth. Seems somewhat similar to today’s reality…
Red Pill vs. Blue Pill
And then there was the ‘red pill’ ‘blue pill’ analogy. Take the red pill and your eyes were opened to the truth – the ‘real’ reality. But, if you took the red pill, you could never go back.
Take the ‘blue pill’ and you return to your cozy false reality.
The thing is, The Matrix is real, in so much as it is analogous to our modern lives.
Everything is “plugged in” to the system.
And when it goes down, you will be on your own…
If you’ve seen The Matrix, then you know what I mean. If
