In Simulacra and Simulation, Jean Baudrillard said that “abstraction is no longer that of the map, the double, the mirror, or the concept. Simulation is no longer that of a territory, a referential being, or a substance. It is the generation by models of a real without origin or reality: a hyperreal.” One might take this a step further and say that a simulated space, idea or object exists permanently without an identity, origin or reality, and that we live our lives in relation to our own relative awareness of this truth. Ultimately, we cultivate a hyperreality to cope with the fact that we rely on systems of understanding that are by their very nature culpable, antiquated or completely false.
