War comes not when it is made by sovereign against sovereign not when killing for attritive and strategic neutralisation purposes is authorised; nor even, properly spoken, when shots are fired ; rather, war comes when society is generally convinced that it is coming.

The entire political system, which appears to be made up of opposite ends of values, is a giant 69ing mirror of itself.

We live in a universe that always seems similar to some other reality that once existed before it. This article needs additional citations for verification. When you try to save an original by making a copy, you make both of them artificial.

At least their last name is fucking tight. Reality can be reproduced a trillion times if some ponytailed jabrony with HTML experience wants it to be. It is the map that precedes the actual territory. He initially draws an analogy withwhere a map is created, so precise in scale and detail that it is impossible to tell it apart from the empire it maps.


Want to know what is the perfect example of all of the tangled orders of simulation? Why the fuck would you bring an Egyptian pharaoh to fucking France?

The only mystery to Los Angeles is what the fuck it actually is. Think back to the Tasaday tribe I told you about earlier—ethnology proved itself by expelling and killing its subject.

And you know what fucking comes next: Every form of power proves itself every time that someone denies it. Why do you think that the US and Japan are so tight now?

Do you know about Francisco Franco?


Well, Ernest Hemingway fucking did. Poor bastard is getting eaten not only by worms, but by science itself. They pit themselves against one another and claim that it is a matter of life and death how else would you get young men to die for a cause?

When the war finally passed from the resistance to the hands of regular Northern troops, it was able to stop: A New Negentropic Subject: Precesssion short circuit of reality and false problem of truth VIII.

It is not by chance that Baudrillard mentions religion perhaps the oldest simulacrum and the fears of Iconoclasts that icons would replace the idea of God and his very existence.

Well, nobody but me, of course. Was it because baudrlllard was such a good fucking maniac army dude? Ever heard that phrase before? Museums are artificial reality.

The fourth and final image simulaxra one that lacks any connection with reality, a “pure simulacra” and map which completely replaces territory. That is so rad.

The fire of production, the thing that made it so necessary, has disappeared. So what did modern society come up with? A simulator, however, will posses some of these symptoms, making it impossible to tell whether he is sick or not, provided he produces true symptoms.

I Media as genetic code of mutation of real into the hyperreal.
