REMEMBER THERAPY WITH ME OFFERS YOUR TRUTH OF YOU NOTHING MORE
From the first Matrix movie. Taking the red pill opens the soon-to-be Neo's eyes to the fantasy that he had been living in. Morpheus says to Neo "You have to understand that many people are not ready to be unplugged, and many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the (family) system that they will fight to protect it."
Contrast with taking the blue pill.
If Neo would have taken the blue pill, he would have stayed within the Matrix and been blind to reality. Morpheus asks pre-Neo Keanu to take the red pill. As Neo reaches for the red pill Morpheus warns Neo "Remember, all I'm offering is truth. Nothing more."
Rather stay in a fake world (Fantasy of reuniting with idealized past self, still connected to mom) than the hard reality one (adult. Separated from mom and appreciative)
. -Taken from the movie Matrix. Taking the easy way out, choosing to ignore the harsh reality and live in blissful ignorance. Blue pill fake world, red pill reality. In reference to being beyond backed-out, in which a person is so drunk, their body may be walking around but their mind is somewhere else aka in the matrix. "You take the blue pill -- the story ends, you "wake up" in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe." Morpheus, The Matrix
