The terms “red pill” and “blue pill” refer to a choice between the willingness to learn a potentially unsettling or life-changing truth by taking the red pill or remaining in contented ignorance with the blue pill. The terms refer to a scene in the 1999 film The Matrix where the main character Neo is offered the choice between a red pill and a blue pill by Morpheus. The red pill offered freedom from the control of the machine-generated dream world and allow him to escape into the real world, which would be harsher and more difficult. Conversely, the blue pill represented a blissful existence leading back to ignorance in confined comfort without want or fear within the simulated reality of the Matrix.
