Rascals are always sociable, and the chief sign that a man has any nobility in his character is the little pleasure he takes in others company. Arthur Schopenhauer

Digital samsara

I don’t think the world is going to fall to pieces in the next years, I think it is going to be counterfeited. The process already began, but it will be more obvious. The idea of “society falling to pieces” contains the optimistic hope of a spring to follow winter. It is why most doomsayers and survivalists are just long-term optimists.

There is no spring coming, instead we will have an endless false-summer. We enter now an age of synthetic digital bloom, everything fake. Fake objects, fake subjects, fake relations and correspondences between fake objects and subjects mediated falsely. Digital samsara. The truth will be fake, and the lies will be worse. You will not know yourself, but you will be fake so its not a big deal anyway.
