Because of the screen, we are now hardwired to perceive of close objects, better, and far away ones–as mere simulation.
That simulation of distance when we zoom or toggle our screens, is replacing the the mind’s eye of distances, a frontier where Individualism was born and now lies, dying.
We are now forever to bat away ants, we will never know; are really Buffalo on the Horizon.
One thing we may not at all realize and that the denialist does, is that it doesn’t matter that something is true, but only that an official story has been accepted.
This explains why lies perpetuate themselves as does culture, which has the necessity of being based on lies in order to facilitate order.
