Red pill and blue pill. Here's the thing: we will all swallow the red pill, eventually, albeit even if it is on our death bed. Might as well live in reality than live in ignorance. Many sufferers want to take the blue pill, live in a fantasy of chemicals and illusion. But the blue pill is not really your life. The only life worth living is your own, good or bad, and that is the red pill.
The red pill and its opposite, the blue pill, are popular culture symbols representing the choice between embracing the sometimes painful truth of reality (red pill) and the blissful ignorance of illusion (blue pill). Escape to the real world vs staying in the matrix and live in a pretend world ☼
