Which pill would you take?

(I dont mean to make taking pills a running theme here, but this is a question I am very curious about.)

Now, I am sure that everyone has seen matrix. Totally awesome film - if you haven't watched it then you must have at least heard what the movie is all about, but regardless, I highly recommend watching it!
The follow up movies are entertaining as far as action goes, though the initial concept and themes of the first movie make that by far the best of the trilogy.

This blog entry is about one of the topics within that movie.

The topic is that of the red and blue pill!

" You take the blue pill - the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes."             - Matrix, 1999



Basically, these two pills represent blissful ignorance (Blue) or painful truth (Red).

My question to you is if you had suspicions that life was a digital world created to keep us contained, would you want to know the truth? or stay within the digital world and continue to live the life you've always known?

  3. Probably the red, I still enjoy learning things all the time, even though I agree ignorance can be blissful. Going to follow your blog, very cool.
