Living in the Matrix

To start off, I would recommend the readers to read what is between parenthesis in slow motion in order to (feel) the Matrix.

The pre-regional meeting started on the third of January (not one day late nor early, that’s quite fancy).

It might sound funny, but I feel like in a computer, programmed by random creatures observing us (because computers obviously need creatures to program them… but who programs the creatures?).

Indeed, from the beginning of the pre-regional meeting, we’ve been served luxury (great food, amazing hotel, nice faculties, wifi wherever we’re taken,  relatively tasty water, breathable air, transportation, security guards all over the place, etc.) . Indeed, I hardly feel that I’m in a third world country. In other useless words (to add more characters to the blog (citing the obvious also adds more characters!!!)), I feel in a warm Canada, Quebec, Montreal.

5 red pills later, I still feel in North America. Thankfully, another 5 red pills did the trick. The side-effects included dizziness and some schizophrenia. Afterwards, I remembered what I saw (and smelled to a certain limit) before the pre-regional meeting and exclaimed : ”Woah… this is crazy!”

Indeed, we all seem to live in our own Matrix, the ones we create using imagination and symbolism. Reality has become so relative that there doesn’t seem to even be one.

Indeed, Morpheus explains the Matrix quite well (obviously) : ” Have you ever had a dream [], that you were so sure was real? What if you were unable to wake from that dream? How would you know the difference between the dream world and the real world?”

He also says : ”If real is what you can feel, smell, taste and see, then ‘real’ is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain”
