Don’t think I’ve ever read a more accurate vision on society then this manifesto; goosebumps.
To me, a person having this vision on our world is a truly great spirit.
In the movie there was a way back. To me that is not an option. But with being lost as I am for half my life now, I very often do wish I had taken the blue pill…
Warvis, Thank you for your comment. I am overwhelmed by the effect the manifesto has, I received such heartwarming reactions to it.
I don’t think you and I are so different. I read your prompts and can relate to much of what you are saying. But there is one difference I think; I have never wished I had taken the blue pill. I have always felt different, a bit of an outsider even in the most familiar and warm situations, and that has it’s bad moments or days. Absolutely. But I would always choose the red pill. I choose the painful truth any day over blissful ignorance, even if I easily see the comfort of sameness.
Morpheus says in the movie: “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.. As a magical and gifted child walking on earth, I want and need to see how deep the rabbit hole goes. There is no other way, even if it means staying in the dark for a while and feel lost, confused. I have no clue what’s in store for me in my life, but I know what I want. Fly high, roam free and love like there is no tomorrow. Life has taught me, sometimes the very hard way, that what I want sometimes isn’t at all what I need to experience.
I look forward to read more of your post. /Michi 🙂
I LOVE THIS so much, I want to adopt it as my manifesto!
