In the movie The Matrix the main character, Neo, suffers in a cubicle from 9-to-5 and silently wishes there was more to life. Then, one night, a message appears on his blank computer screen...
"Wake up, Neo. The Matrix has you."
If you haven't seen the movie, The Matrix is a computer program that human minds are trapped in by machines that have taken over the world. It's a metaphor for the programmed lives many of us live.
Fortunately, there's a way out for us, just like there was a way out for Neo.
