This is a conversation I’ve had before. If I was in the Matrix and given this opportunity, I feel like ultimately the blue pill is way better. You’d feel happy and life would continue to exist as you know it. Sure you are living a lie, but you wouldn’t actually know it. Its like, if you are used to a shadow world, the shadows are reality.
Also seeing as so many characters end up dying with our brief time in the real world, it doesn’t seem that realistic that we (someone thats not Neo) would survive that long in reality.
To take the question without being directly in the Matrix, most of the time I’d prefer to know harsh truth than be left comfortable but lied to. That said, there are situations where I purposefully don’t ask questions because I don’t want to know too much details etc.
