Shit just got real, huh? Aimulacra it stay as tough? I wonder how they type up their press releases to accurately reflect the way they stylize their name. The whole orgy of silliness inside is actually just a stupid, intentional maze that leads you back to where you started: And somehow this makes it more true, I think, which seems like total bullshit. What are the means and what is the end?

In Baudrillard’s rendition, it is conversely the map that people live in, the simulation of reality where the people of Empire spend their lives ensuring their place in the representation is properly circumscribed and detailed by the map-makers; conversely, it is reality that is crumbling away from disuse.

That creepy ass ghost off call simulation has itself murdered the balls out of truth, reference and maybe even objectivity.


This makes me sad because I used to be really into space as a young French boy on the farm. The balance of terror is the terror of balance.

A customer in the bank might be so traumatized by your tbe that they have a heart attack and die. It is possible to miss the truth of a war: TV watches us, TV alienates us, TV manipulates us, TV informs us… in all of this, we are dependent on a type of analysis that sits oddly between reality and meaning.

Japan, while certainly in the east, counts as precessoon Western society because they have iPhones and fucking vending machines.

Museums are artificial reality. Just looking and judging, being stupid. Money was the first thing to use deterrence, abstraction, disconnection, to obliterate territories and borders, and so forth. After the nuclear race, the space race seemed a natural next step. And all of their bitching about Franco ended up serving to actually sort of unite the very people that he oppressed against any kind of intervention by foreign nations.

If you cut the simulacta in half, you end up with an unusable spiral. J Production of goods no longer makes sense in our era of hysterical production and reproduction of the real; hence contemporary material production is hyperreal. And it was talked about playfully as a game between friendly nations towards a peaceful and preecession coexistence.

Nobody walks in LA.


Baudrillard addresses two scientific advancements that changed the way we see the world and allow for the production of hyperreality: We live in a universe that always simulacrw similar to some other reality that once existed before it.

Hyperreality — Map and Territory. The only mystery to Los Angeles is what the fuck it actually is.

But despite this deterrence that results from the global satellite police, things happening down here on earth strangely continue to fuck up. Lots of people who are into science end up doing a sort of anti-ethnology by distancing themselves from the subject. How are the guards on duty, or the police who might respond to the distress call, to see any difference between this event and a real one?

Fight a war until the global big wigs are all on the same bandwagon, and then cut out.

Power 2nd order ideology and return to truth. Ramses, or Rose-Colored Resurrection: Having the Tasaday available should anybody want to challenge the findings was a convenient fucking backup. Give me a break. The precessiom image describes by Baudrillard in the process of creating simulacra or hyperreality is one which disguises the absence of rhe deep meaning. Implosion abolishes all energies to a minimum threshold. Illusion is no longer possible because the real is no longer possible.

The same perfect model now governs social life as well.
