He/ she does not ask questions and does not will to change own life in the more real and true way. Despite the ever-present possibility to start those changes, which Plato vividly describes as light from the ideal world behind one’s back, most of the humans prefer to keep living in their familiar world of illusions, which is only a poor projection, a shadow of the ideal world.

To get free from AI control, and to get out of the capsule, Neo symbolically bursts those cables and leads, and find himself confused and weak before the AI. The real world looks terrifying.
