One of my favorite movies, The Matrix, reveals how things are not what most think they are. The analogy of humans who think they are living in the ‘real world’ versus the reality of their enslavement inside individual pods while ‘the system’ projects a ‘false world’ while ‘feeding’ off them – is so very apropos to today’s reality.
For those of us who have been searching for the truths, and for those of us who when at the crossroads of choice have decidedly chosen the ‘red pill’ instead of the blue pill, we have escaped the pods of the system – although the system doesn’t like that so much…
The thing is, The Matrix is real, in so much as it is analogous to our modern lives.
And when it goes down, you’ll be on your own…
If you’ve seen ‘The Matrix’ (1999), then you know what I mean. If you haven’t, you might be interested in watching it…
We are living in a modern world in which there is a system of sorts which has been cleverly designed (or evolved) such that much of what you see and hear (your view) is filtered through a veil. The veil is the matrix.
The matrix affects what you perceive and what you do. Your reality.
The thing is… Not only does the matrix need YOU to survive, most of YOU need the matrix to survive. (Perhaps not you personally reading this, but figuratively the ‘masses’).
For most, the dependencies on the matrix have evolved into a requirement for survival. These dependencies fuel the matrix itself. Not only that, but for any who step outside the matrix (e.g. take the ‘red pill’), there are armies of “Agent Smith’s” out there who are empowered (by the matrix) to get you back ‘in line’, or worse, to eliminate you (again, movie reference…).
For the preparedness minded and for those who have seen the movie and understand the analogies, I will refrain from further obvious comparisons to today’s ‘reality’.
That said, when the matrix goes down (and it seems that it will one day), all those hundreds of millions in the pods will be on their own as the veil drops from their view. Their pods will open and they will suddenly be faced with the horror of their reality. It’s not what they thought…
They will be on their own. We all will be.
The question is, what will these pod people do? What will their reaction be, and the next reaction, and the next? What will be the sequence of events for them and consequently for us who are already outside the pod (so to speak…)?
The thought of all those pods popping open at once and imagining an analogous outcome with today’s realities – makes for an interesting mental exercise… perhaps more motivation to prepare??
