In The Matrix movie there’s a particularly memorable scene where Morpheus (Lawrence Fishburne) is explaining to Neo (Keanu Reeves) what the matrix is. If you haven’t seen it or would like a refresher check out the video below. I would like to highlight the following section of the dialogue to share a revelation I’ve had.
In The Matrix the human race had been reduced to little more than a power source for the machines, living out our ‘virtual lives’ in a programmed world created as the ultimate system of control. By taking the Red Pill Neo chose to break the chains that kept him in slavery. He chose to live as a free man in the real world and he chose to make it his mission to free as many other minds as he could.
