Simulation: A painter draws a horse that is so real that it cannot be distinguished from a hourse
- During the media “explosion of events”, any event has a “contra-positive”
- Every event is staged (eg. war is reduced to TikTok, Instagram, or news)
- The line between marketing, news and truth is impossible to discern (eg. Sylvester Stallone is in the hall of fame of boxing)
- Reality becomes the hyper-real
- The signs of disaster are pictures to be consumed
- The media create copies: non-events that are easily digested
- We become complicit in disinformation campaigns, we enjoy deception
- We dictate the screen, are the editor, and subscriber
- If we search long enough we will believe in any event as truth
- Did you lose contact with reality?
- Isn’t writing already a virtual reality?
- Everything conceals nothing

The Missing Key to Understanding Christopher Nolan (Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90m6Hb6_j20)
What is the ideology of Nolan’s movies?
- Non-chronological movies
- Characters are engaged in deception
- Characters cannot obtain knowledge of objective reality
- “Reality is constructed in our mind” It is subjective
- Our memory is a collection of notes and ideas
- Embrace the existential meaning of our subjectivity
- “We have to live as if some things are true” a Kierkegaardian “leap of faith”
- Acknowledgment of beliefs allows to look inwards
How Nolan writes (Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zZJi_78XUVg)
- A Story that is a labyrinth
- Cross-Cutting: Shepard Effect utilized from music, a corkscrew effect, a continuing rise (Inter-cutting Scenes)
- Doesn’t use zoom-lenses, changes performances
- Real locations (the texture of real life)
Why does the sentence have to be false?
- Can we say: “Brains in a Vat”?
- The idea causes a contradiction: We can only be brains in the vat within in the current simulation
- Thus, the sentence does not represent reality but represents whatever is in the simulation
- It follows that we are not brains in a vat
Does from that follow that we are not exposed to another form of exposure?
