Morpheus: I imagine that right now, you're feeling a bit like Alice. Hm? Tumbling down the rabbit hole?
Neo: You could say that.
Morpheus: I see it in your eyes. You have the look of a man who accepts what he sees because he is expecting to wake up. Ironically, that's not far from the truth. Do you believe in fate, Neo?
Morpheus: Why not?
Neo: Because I don't like the idea that I'm not in control of my life.
Morpheus: I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why you're here. You're here because you know something. What you know you can't explain, but you feel it. You've felt it your entire life, that there's something wrong with the world. You don't know what it is, but it's there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you know what I'm talking about?
Neo: The Matrix.
Morpheus: Do you want to know what it is?
Morpheus: The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now, in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window, or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work, when you go to church, when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.
Neo: What truth?
Morpheus: That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else, you were born into bondage, born into a prison that you cannot smell or taste or touch. A prison for your mind. Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself. This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. 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. Remember: all I'm offering is the truth. Nothing more.
Morpheus: The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you're inside, you look around, what do you see? Business men, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system, and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.
I'm impatient. I can't wait to see if something will happen and what. Are we on the verge of fundamental changes? I don't know.

I would like to add, I definitely feel it too.
I have been very vocal about this recently.
I feel it in the center of my chest like a giant weight that is just sitting on me.
It is so thick in the air you could almost cut it with a knife.
I know 'I' am changing for many reaasons, too long to go into in one post but for example,
Am I the only one who can hardly bear to sit thru a T.V. commercial anymore?
I watch very little T.V. anyway and I have always loathed commercials but lately, I find myself getting angry
just having to sit thru ONE commercial. Something about the phonyness of it all.
It is sooo 'fake'....so.....disinginuous, if that is the right word I am looking for.
It is so blatantly obvious and unapologetically false that it makes my stomach turn.
Being marketed to really really REALY PISSES ME OFF to no end!!!!
It makes me feel like I am less than human. Like I am just a number who has the ONE thing they want....PAPER!!!
PAPER with numbers printed on it!!!!
That's all they really want!!!
MY PAPER with numbers printed on it.
Then why can't they just come the 'F' out and say it already?!?!?
"We want your paper with numbers printed on it. Preferrably the papers with higher numbers"
I find myself shouting explitives at my T.V. when it IS on!
I have 5 kids and they watch t.v. too. so even when 'I' am not watching it, there's a good chance it is ON anyway.
"dads yelling at the T.V. again mom".
Aghhhhh!edit on 20-10-2011 by Screwed because: (no reason given)

I cannot help but wonder if the Schumann Resonance has anything to do with it. The Schumann Resonance is the planetary vibration, measured in Hertz. From 1899, when it was first discovered by Nicola Tesla, until the mid 1980s, it remained at a stable 7.8 Hz. From the mid to late 80s onward to 2011, it has gone up to 12 Hz. Supposedly, the faster the earth vibrates, the slower it rotates.
