Set in distant future an alien invasion wipe out most of the human races, however their intention remains unclear. These aliens would capture humans and imprison them, aware that mankind's frail body will not last long in captivity unless their mind is deceived, the alien would attach a cord into the human's brain and let the mind accept a hyper reality where the alien doesn't exist the invasion never happens.
In metamorphoses, about a Roman poet retold a Greek myth of Tiresias, a blinded prophet. Let's skip to the climax here comes Narcissus who is so handsome many people desire and love him however their love was not reciprocated. A rejected suitor filed a complaint against Narcissus and request Nemesis, Goddess of Vengeance to place a curse on Narcissus so that he will only love nobody but himself and at the same time cannot accept his own love. One day when Narcissus went to the river to satisfy his thirst he fell not into the river but in love with a handsome man inside the water, he tried to kiss that man but to no avail and soon he realized that's only his own reflection...
My question is if the alien hook us up in a hyper reality where all of our desires can be fulfilled, our mind can believe anything is real will the POW see through the subjugation and reject the control?
Comment below if you need to clarify on the OP. (POW = prisoners of war)
