Abstract: "This is your last chance. After this there is no turning back. 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.” Morpheus, the Matrix A comprhet professor that I know used that line from the movie, The Matrix, as an analogy to the change one goes through as a person grows and learns. In the movie, Laurence Fishburn's character, Morpheus, presents Neo, played by Keanu Reeves, with a choice. And Morpheus warns Neo that no matter what his decision is, there is no turning back. Thinking about it, it made perfect sense. If choice represents change, then our lives are in constant change as long as we continue to learn, continue to seek answers, and continue to question those answers we find. And quite like Neo, once we choose to accept the red pill, we cannot go back to where we started. Just as we cannot unlearn the things we learn, and un-know the things we know, we cannot become the people we once were.
