The Red Pill As a Cultural Meme

 

*  The Red Pill.  I used this phrase in my Welcome home page, having first heard of it in the movie, The Matrix (*), in a conversation between Morpheus and Neo.

Taking the red pill represents an uncertain future— involving willingness to free the self from the enslaving control of the machine-generated dream world and allowing you to escape into the real world, but living the “truth of reality” is harsher and more difficult.  You see and consciously experience what the ‘control matrix’ is really doing to you. 

On the other hand, the blue pill represents an illusory beautiful prison—leading you back to ignorance, living in confined comfort, an illusion of wonderland, but really freedoms are continually eroding.
