Take The Blue Pill

Will You Choose The Blue Pill and Go Back To Numbness?

Limited Comfort, Handing Over Control, Handing Over Accountability and Decision-Making...Numbness... Want these things? Take the blue pill.

In the movie, The Matrix, Morpheus offers Neo both the Red and the Blue pills and Neo must make a choice.

Take the red pill and continue to awaken and see the world as it is, including all the world's pros and cons - or take the blue pill and become part of the world's illusions and forget about decision-making forever.

Side Effects of the Blue Pill

None that you will generally be aware of.

If ignorance is bliss, you've swallowed correctly in gulping down the big, blue pill.

HOWEVER - be prepared to allow most of your thoughts, decisions and most important aspects of your life to be governed by someone other than YOU...

This is the benefit of the blue pill - no real accountability - but also - no real empowerment in your life.

Ignorance is Bliss.

Ignorance is Bliss...

Lack of awareness will allow you to float through life without being accountable for your own thinking...

Try it... see if you feel free...

You'll likely feel a cloying sort of pseudo-freedom and if you're okay with that you've chosen correctly in swallowing down the blue pill...

There's not much more to say.

Enjoy your bliss.

Well, that was weird. You know, it really wouldn't matter in the great scheme of things which pill you took, now would it?

Austinstar, if you wanted to actually be aware, your choice would matter. You'd likely not select the blue pill.

I read your red pill, and was a little confused on where you were going, but now reading the blue pill, you hit a lot of it square on the head of the nail. Let others control you life, is a big statement here.

Keep on hubbing!

How many calories does each have? Does one have more harmful dyes than the other. Could I take a capsule? But to choose so far may be too early to choose. Great hub as always.

eovery - I've been away from my home computer so my writing has been a little disconnected lol which is probably why my last few hubs are a little more fragmented and harder to "get" than usual. I'll work on these to bring some clarity over the next week or so. You did, however, get my general gist of things.

Mickey Dee, the red pill likely contains more calories than the blue pill, however, those who take the blue pill won't care about calories after the blue pill is ingested lol. Capsule sounds good to me. Gel cap would be even better. Fast-action and easy metabolic breakdown would probably benefit anyone taking either pill.

Thanks for the descriptive. I have yet to read about the red pill but suffice to say, for me, the blue pill is NOT an option, so red it is... Should I watch for signs of shock? How about the half life of the red pill? Oh yes, and most importantly, will it be covered under my insurance?

This was too kewl!

Can I get pregnant? Will I get high, like really high, Will I meet Keanu reeves? Will Keanu give some up if I do? Will myth give me a kiss? Will Blake4d buy cake for me? Will you guys visit my new hub tomorrow? Which pill acts as a female viagara? Has anyone taken this pill yet? Will it let me write as many hubs as you do so often? Will it give me 100 score? Will it bring more followers? Will I become super powerful and walk around in the coolest black coat/cape known to man or matrix thingy? Will it transform me to be 'THE ONE?' Will it make me super smoking hot? Will it make me rich enough to own the entire internet? Will you hang with me even though it I presume will make me super cool? Will it give me the power to fly and also run?????? Will it give me high blood pressure? Will it make me understand how to use my new laptop? Will it make me blonde, large chested and a rockstar? Will it help me get to the moon whenever I want?

Will it make me not lame?

Nothing can be achieved without taking the share of responsibility!! It may be a grim struggle for existence but life would be too dull without our daily grinding!! Its such a joy when we meander through the difficulties of professional and personal life, celebrate with elan at every step of achievement!!

Buddy, now you know my choice!!

Thought provoking hub, mythbuster

I think that a lot of people are already taking their equivalents of the blue pill - tranquillisers, alcohol, drugs, shopping. A largish part of the population seems to be seeking numbness.

I myself am a red pill person, as growing awareness is worth enduring the painful parts of life for

I'd take the blue pill in a heartbeat as I feel the matrix is the norm of which I'm not accustomed too,to see this reality of supposed mind over perception...

mythbuster 6 years ago from Utopia, Oz, You Decide Author

Mentalist acer, you believe your mind would win over the blue pill and you'd experience the benefits of numbness AND awareness at the same time if you were to take the blue pill?

This parody at the end was kinda weird lol, but I dig it, Funny stuff you got here, and very cool technique to pull people in to the Blue Pill. Your writing style is superb in every way, and I have no choice but to become a blue pill follower, as your hubs can lead the way for me :)

Just joking you definitely got me interested in reading more of your hubs. Nice! I wasn't joking about your writing style though, that is my sincerest opinion.
