The choice is an illusion

The Matrix Resurrection (2022): The choice is an illusion

Bugs: You have to be ready to leave.
You have to be really ready.

And if you’re not…

if you think that
this is where you belong…

Morpheus: You call this a choice?

Bugs: Oh, honestly, when somebody offered me these things, I went off on binary conceptions of the world and said there was no way I was swallowing some symbolic reduction of my life.

And the woman with the pills laughed ’cause I was missing the point.

Morpheus: What point?

Bugs: The choice is an illusion. You already know what you have to do.
