Smiling and the Matrix

“The Matrix is a system, Peewee. That system is our enemy. But when you’re inside, you look around, what do you see? Mopers, worriers, complainers, and the chronically indignant. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inert, so hopelessly dependent on the system that they will fight to protect it. But we have a secret weapon, Peewee: the smile. It releases dopamine, endorphins, and serotonin. Neurotransmitters that can help any cowboy or cowgirl feel dingdang good.”

Cowboy Curtis sings a song about smiling.
