When we talk about the Matrix, the famous science fiction film or novels with similar themes come to mind. But talking about it in real life seems a little far-fetched, doesn’t it?

Previously, a dream metaphor was used in a fundamental way to describe the existence of an unreality in which we participate without knowing it. Today, the metaphor has been modified with the advance of technology, giving way to computer and computer simulation. Accept the illusion, like recognizing that the person dreams in a state of lucidity. The consciousness that is seen as an illusion itself and that recognizes the universe as a mirage.
Following this line of thought, it is feasible to imagine that individuals who are capable of perceiving the illusion of the universe could be part of some conspiracy. One that maintains an illusion in a universal way.
