Escaping the Matrix of Modern Medicine

Physician, red pill thyself.

You are likely familiar with a similar phrase:

Physician, heal thyself.

This phrase is most widely attributed to Jesus, who was referencing a Greek proverb. It’s interesting to note that the account was written by Jesus’ disciple, Luke, who was himself a physician.

“Physician, heal thyself” refers to the idea that a physician likely has the means to deliver healing to others, but yet does not take the necessary steps to relieve their own suffering.

(The phrase is also used when one passes moral judgment or gives specific directives and yet does not follow the instructions themselves. Read into this however you’d like.)

The phrase, “physician, red pill thyself” takes this proverb into account but also includes the teachings of the cult classic movie The Matrix.

If you have not seen the movie, the concept of the movie, The Matrix, is that humans are actually living in an alternate reality. That is, what humans know as “life” is actually a computer simulation.
