According to cognitive neuroscientists, only five percent of human thoughts are conscious. This means that ninety-five percent of our decisions, actions and emotions are the result of totally unconscious mechanisms, shaped entirely by what has been manufactured in our minds by our culture and, increasingly today, by an all-pervasive mass media. Once our perspectives have been shaped by these cultural influences, we cannot help but view the world through these same patterns of thought, even becoming enslaved by them. This is why it has never been more crucial that Christians “not conform any longer to the pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of their minds.”
Unplugging from the Matrix is for those who seek to be transformed through a complete exodus into an alternative culture—a culture where they can begin to reclaim every essential aspect of their lives.
