Are we living  in the paradigm developed in the The Matrix movie franchise?  As we interface with technology on a daily, if not hourly basis, we influence technology.  In turn, technology continually influences our perceptions of the world and thus our reality.  Using examples from everyday life, join Dr. Keith, Ph.D and Dr. Guinn, Ph.D as they dive into the deep relationships and influences that humans  and technology have on one another.  The Matrix is real!
