Behind every image, something has disappeared. And that is the source of its
fascination. Behind virtual reality in all its forms [...] the real has disappeared. And
that is what fascinates everyone. According to the official version, we worship the
real and the reality principle, but -and this is the source of the current suspense- is
it, in fact, the real we worship, or its disappearance?
Jean Baudrillard Why hasnt everything already disappeared?
