If you’re familiar with the Matrix movies the meaning of this work’s title is pretty clear. If not, then be warned. If you swallow this pill it will forever change your way of looking at the world. As Morpheus said in the movie:

So make your choice. And if you choose wisely, rather than expediently, you’ll get something tall and cool to wash it down with, then turn the page….

Your eyelids are heavy. Lethargy steals over your limbs. As breathing slows, you realize you’re looking down on your comatose body. Your soul seems light – too light.

It’s the middle of the 19th Century and you find yourself in the body of the heir to a vast fortune. A quick glance around the room shows gold leaf trimming the ceiling and doilies on the furniture, all upholstered in leather or velvet – very plush. The mahogany wainscoting gleams.
You look down. The body is a little different from what you’re used to, but comfortable, and you soon begin to forget what you were before.
