Will you choose the real world or the matrix?

I wanna talk about a scene from the film Matrix, where the character of Cypher makes a deal with Agent Smith, the main antagonist of the film.

Cypher makes a deal that he will help Agent Smith capture Morpheus, the most important man to the last human city in the world and in exchange Cypher wants to escape the real world, re-enter the Matrix, forget about everything that happened prior to this and live a life happily ever after.

Watching this scene made me wanna think about my own life and how sometimes I desperately want to escape reality by entering a fantasy world and never ever coming out of it. But me feeling this way raises a lot of questions.

Why do I want to go into the matrix in the first place, why can’t I continue to live in the real world and make the best of it?..., well because Cypher made me feel like it. So if Cypher made me feel like it, then on some psychological level I connected with him. So if I connected with him, it means that Cypher would happily betray his friends to get the luxuries of life so if given the choice, would I do the same?

Some people would argue that you shouldn’t be so pathetic and miserable that you would betray your own friends to escape the hardships of your life. They would argue that when you fail, you should take a break, get your thoughts together and then get back into the battlefield. But I’m not currently talking to those guys, I’m currently talking to those people who have failed again and again so miserably that they come to the point where all you need is a back door to the exit of your worries and this exit is in the shape of the choice that is given to Cypher.

Now, would you take this backdoor or would you not? Whatever is your answer, think about it and leave it in the comments. Until then subscribe to this channel (https://goo.gl/cpdl88), so you can stay tuned to some film philosophy every Monday.
