For those keen readers who listened to the podcast in the previous post, you would have heard Daniel mention something about a cartoon titled “The Meatrix” which is a parody of the movie series “The Matrix”. You would have also heard us talking about our awakening when we took the red pill. I wrote about the red pill many moons ago now, but here is a little extract from it:
“Does this dream mean anything? I don’t know, but I do know that I always strive to be all that I can be when I take up the gauntlet for a cause. If helping to save the future of our planet isn’t the ultimate cause, then I don’t know what is! Maybe it means that I have a sub-conscious deep need or desire to be recognised for my efforts (very deep). Whilst in reality, all around me, I see pollution, uncontrolled consumerism, resource depletion and people living in a “Matrix” like world, unaware that if we all fail to act soon, they will be in for a hell of an awakening.
Maybe the dream meant that I have followed the white rabbit, and met my Morpheus, who has offered me the choice of the two pills, and I chose the red pill. I now know what the Matrix is. I see our current civilisation for what it really is, which is a distraction whereby most westerners are infected with Affluenza and the masses are very, very confused about the true reality of things.
Or maybe, I just ate too much pizza last night and felt guilty for straying from the path of healthy eating, and therefore it was a sub-conscious manifestation of ego and guilt. Whatever it meant, I will continue to strive towards a sustainable lifestyle and promise to eat healthy homemade pizza from now on. [which we have by the way]“
