What is the Whitepill?
It is the name I give to a set of ideas developed over the years that aim to achieve happiness in our depressive and oppressive 21st century society. It is an experiment, an amalgamation of ideologies, and a psychological and physical guide for those who feel have no purpose in our world.
Because let’s be frank: You are either happy or you are not.
Some people enjoy life: They have close loved ones, engaging hobbies, love their job and field of study. Then some people are okay with life: They study, but lack motivation, they work, but they wish they didn’t have to, they find life lacks spark. And then some people don’t enjoy life: They long for loved ones that do not come, have a job they keep only to avoid starving, feel dread at waking up to another day of infernal routine.
The Whitepill is aimed for the last group, although anyone can certainly take away many lessons from here. It is overall a guide made for people to get out of endless depression and despair, and let them start the day feeling joy instead of dread.
Where does the ‘Whitepill’ come from?
The origin of the ‘pills’ comes from the Matrix: Morpheus offers Neo one of two pills, a red, or a blue one. The red would allow Neo to see the reality of the world he lived in, while the blue would take him back to sweet ignorance.
Thus, in the early 2000’s two sociological ideologies appeared: The Bluepill and the Redpill.
The Bluepill is the belief that when it comes to social interactions, true personality and being yourself are key to success.
The Redpill claims the Bluepill is unrealistic, and that instead it is appearance and attitude which maximizes your impact. Dress this way, talk that way, behave this other way.
The Blackpill is an extension of the Redpill, and appeared in the early 2010’s, It is based on the idea that appearance is the far more important consideration in our society, impacting almost every interaction we have.
The Whitepill was created in response to the three pills. Contrary to them, it does not seek to explain our world, but rather use the information already gathered to adapt and apply an efficient strategy to maximize happiness
