My husband and I went to see "Surrogates" this afternoon. It was a movie that historicizes "virtual reality".
"Surrogates" are robot type "models" of humanity that function for the individual in society. The living human being is "connected" to the surrogate via a "computorized system". "Surrogates" Live for the human, as the human only experiences their life within the confines of their "chair".
The meaning of the movie to me was how disconnected the "connected" were. Relationships were dissolved of intimacy and humans were denied their "humanity".
Is this where we are today, even though we don't "officially" function as a "surrogate" society?
