After reading through the three short literary pieces assigned in this module and spending time in reflection about them, I have come to the conclusion that they all revolve around the theme of reality being a facade, or dream, and that the truth of existence may be too hard for people to handle, and would take time to get used to.

It is almost too much for him to accept. He experiences fear, denial, and confusion, but eventually acceptance and then sadness. He realizes that all of his “life” had been a lie. Morpheus reminds him, “I didn’t say it would be easy, Neo. I only said it would be the truth.” (Matrix Synopsis) “Then there would be need of habituation, I take it, to enable him to see the things higher up. And at first he would most easily discern the shadows and, after that, the likenesses or reflections in water of men and other things, and later, the things themselves, and from these he would go on to contemplate the appearances in the heavens and heaven itself, more easily by night, looking at the light of the stars and the mo...
