Did you know that we (and all life) are unknowingly enslaved? Welcome to Our Real Matrix proves it by using accepted science taken to its logical conclusion.
The Real Matrix is both the biological processes for all organisms and the biomass resulting from those processes. It includes each living organism’s (including each human’s) individual, unique, and interrelated perception of, and response to, Reality, which resides internally in the organism. The result is a false appearance of Reality that is only an interpretation of the signals received by each organism’s sensory receptors. Furthermore, the Real Matrix emerged and continues to emerge in a non-directional way through the processes of abiogenesis (emergence of life) and evolution.
There are many similarities between the Real Matrix we exist within and the Matrix from the movie, including its ubiquity in our world coupled with our lack of awareness from within it. The differences are more overwhelming, including that the Real Matrix emerged in a non-directional/intentional way (i.e., no sentient machines) and that there is no escape (i.e., no red pill).
After establishing this premise, the book explores its implications and what humans could potentially do with this revised view of our reality.
