Unplugging from the Matrix

Technology has quickly changed the way we live our lives. It’s hard to imagine that 20 years ago there was no Internet, 15 years ago there was no “social media” and 10 years ago we weren’t glued to our smartphones. All of these new things snuck up on us without our ability to prepare for them and through them we’ve voluntarily hooked ourselves up to the matrix… which, interestingly, debuted with Keanu 18 years ago (thanks Google)!

Before we had the Internet, our minds were limited to the information we had access to, which was mostly determined by television, our friends, authority figures, advertisers and how willing we were to go to the library. If we wanted to sit around and watch cat memes all day, our only choice was to go stare at live cats.
