Hyperreality

from Wikipedia: Hyperreality

Hyperreality is used in semiotics and postmodern philosophy to describe a hypothetical inability of consciousness to distinguish reality from fantasy, especially in technologically advanced postmodern cultures. Hyperreality is a means to characterize the way consciousness defines what is actually “real” in a world where a multitude of media can radically shape and filter an original event or experience.

“The simulation of something which never really existed.” – Jean Baudrillard
“The authentic fake.” – Umberto Eco
“[Hyperreality] is nothing more than the technological capability to intermix virtual reality (VR) with physical reality (PR) and artificial intelligence (AI) with human intelligence (HI) in a way that appears seamless and allows interaction.” – Nobuyoshi Terashima
“The virtual irreality” – Pater Sparrow
