The Matrix: which pill will you take?

Standard

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.

— Morpheus, to Neo (Matrix)

Matrix is here.  Wherever we go, we see people with their heads down focusing on their mobile devices–they are plugged into the Matrix, the new frontier where reality is altered, mixed and even fabricated.  In the Matrix, we can find facts to validate our beliefs, people that live forever, records of everything anyone ever did, and amusement that caters to our every desire.  We can meet anyone, travel to anywhere, even imaginary places, without ever lifting our feet.  In the Matrix the most precious currency is popularity, whether we are liked or disliked.  If you are liked, you can become worldwide celebrity instantly; in you’re disliked, the wrath the world can descend up on you.  The choice is yours.
