Imagine you lived your life urealiisicly perfect. Everthing you ever wanted you have. You think nothing could ever go wrong. Then one day you head home from a buisness meeting, and a Stranger in Trechcoat approaches you. He has a hood puuled up from over the trech coat, You assome he's wering a sweater. He then speaks to you, At first your freaked out, that a random stranger comes up to you for no apparent reason.,but what he say's is more disturbing. He tells you that your world, your unverse is, a lie , fake. He starts explaining, Your linked to a device that potrays a holgrphic images into own your mind. Nothing you know or worked for is real. Your own parents are fake. Wha's more distubing, is he show's you proof. Seeing this he tells you that he can help you escape, this realtiy, Altough by doing so you will lose everthing , having to start over.
- Do you think he's delsional and live your life, ingnoring the proof he showed you.
- Do you accept his offer, to escape this realty, not knowing if it's ploy; you are living perfect life after all.

This is really a pub topic.
Red Pill Blue Pill eh?
I'd choose to return to reality, life is only lived once. Its better to know what reality looks like then by living in a perfect world with a constand suspicion of whether life is real or not.
I'd keep living that perfect life, but it would all be a bit strange after the fact knowing that it was fake. But then I could use that to my advantage, knowing beforehand that everything was going to go my way, no matter what. Betting on races, dating, business deals. You've only got one life to live, why not enjoy it?
Id do what neo did.
Hmm, that's a hard one. I might just think he's some kind of devil trying to help me 'escape' when he wants to kill me... and I should cut back on the drugs. :p If the proof was mind bashing, I wouldn't go (because it seems too unrealistic) but if the proof was mildly mind bashind - I'd go.
I'm way cooler than n0e (who isn't though?)

username66 your sig is too big , please resize it
I might not care if it was fake, live in a peice of shit world, or a perfect illusion? mmmm, depends if I was neo or I was cypher, if I was neo and could kick serious ass, yeah I'd unplug, if I was cypher (IE normal) I would just take the blue pill and go on living knowing that the world was fake and enjoying it, illusions can be comfortable.
Well I feel safe that this wouldnt happen to me, life sucks.
I'd start off by kicking him in the balls, if he does not get upset I'll take a second to think of what he said.
I'd stay in my fantasy world, use my knowledge to my advantage.
