Living in the Matrix

I noticed that at this point I was stuck at a stand still
wait – what just happened? (with the squinty eyes) -__-
Yep, I was still trying to process this information.
It’s like that computer glitch during your favorite video game , right when the screen freezes in the middle of a game for a split second and then BOOM, you end up jumping at the wrong time, now you’re character is falling into the bottom of the screen, now you have to start over 🙁
At this point I end up spending my game time repeating the same level again and again, but this time I can’t even get close to completing it because I’m just so bummed about getting so far the first time.
Then. It hit me, my very own binary numeral system of zero’s and one’s were glitching
and I needed to
reboot each single digit
bit by bit.
I was living in the Matrix,
created by sentient machines to subdue the human population, while my bodies’ heat and electrical activity are used as an energy source.
the MATRIX , just like the movie with Laurence Fishburn as Morpheus and Keanu Reeves as Neo.
I am Neo and I must encoded and decode the  truth  through communicating and processing. There is something wrong and I am puzzled by repeated online encounters.
In other words, I need to speak my truth, walk in my truth or I will continue living a lie full of mistakes that I create for myself.
Then I met a beautiful stranger (my partner) that led me into the underworld (Ohio), where I meet Morpheus (yoga).
Morpheus [The Matrix 1999] said:
“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 the 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 – that you are a slave. 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.”
