So would you take the red pill or the blue pill? I'm sure you know what I'm talking about, but just in case, here's a refresher. In "The Matrix" Neo is offered the chance to see the world as really exists by taking a red pill or he can take the blue pill, forget everything, and continue living his life in blissful ignorance. I'd be willing to bet most people would take the red pill-- though they might regret it later (just as Joe Pantoliano's character "Cypher" did). I think it's in our nature to want to know what's going on, even if we choose to put the blinders back on later. Do you agree? Could you actually choose not to know?
