This question already has an answer here:
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.
Matrix 1 always got me confused at this point of the movie. This is how I understand the proposition given by Morpheus :
The blue pill
- The story ends : the life the matrix invented for you ends.
- You wake up in your bed : in the jelly tube
- Believe whatever you want to believe : you are finally free to think for yourself
The Red Pills
- You stay in Wonderland : you stay in the Matrix
Then Neo picks the red pill and I've always been puzzled as why is the red pill the one to get out and not the blue pills. I'd appreciate some enlightenement about this quote : Why is the blue pill the pill to leave the Matrix ?
