Just so we're clear:We use the terms red pill blue pill a lot and it got me thinking. The occult, satanists, and gnostics say that God had us on the blue pill but satan gave us the red pill. The truth is satan slipped us the black pill while God was giving us the white pill.
- Blue Pill - False narrative, what is taught as "normal" which is concealing the true nature of reality. Every society has its own blue pill narrative; some are more harmful to people than others. This implies that blue pills are not always harmful, and can even be occasionally helpful in building some sort of justification for a better kind of society.
- Red Pill - What is true behind the blue pill narrative, "the man behind the mask", that which once learned, cannot be unlearned. The red pill is the rabbit hole: once you go down, there's no coming back up. Often causes a brief period of depression in the face of realizing that we were all collectively lied to in the first place, and that the lie was so big and thorough.
- Black Pill - Doom narrative, a variant on the blue pill masquerading as a red pill. Attempts to misguide you into giving up by pushing the idea that the situation is hopeless and inevitable.
- White Pill - Hope narrative, which can be a mix of blue (false hope) or red pill (hope through awareness that the black pill is not true).
