In the Matrix, humans are strapped to non-sentient feeding machines that essentially perpetually suck life matter out of them to sustain robotic life. However the humans are inserted into a somewhat digital alternate reality to give them hope. In Inception, a group of professional dream-alterers dubbed "extractors" enter the subconscious and dreams of targets to implant an idea into their consciousness. In Vanilla Sky, the main character authorizes scientists to preserve his body and he enters a 150 year long cryonic dream that goes awry. In Donnie Darko, something happens but nobody can consistently explain the plot.
Over the past week, we here at Royals Review joined with other SB Nation writers to enter into an alternate reality. One should remember though that our alternate reality is a lot less dramatic, fun, and serious as those above. No one was harmed in the process of our alternate reality.
Our alternate reality consisted of taking over the general management of the 30 respected MLB clubs. Those implanted general managers would be given full discretion to sign, release, and trade players to achieve whatever goal they wanted. The results of that alternate reality and more are discussed in the preceding podcast.
