Let’s try to get a grasp on where Facebook stands in terms of that super old-school term, “reality.”
Your plight is this: You can’t get to any objective truths that might be present in external reality without running into your own subjective finagling. In cyberspace, the indifferent surrounds of external reality are replaced with a digitized hyperreal, an online indoors of virtual representations. When you enter cyberspace, you enter an interior space which you drive through using the GPS of your own consciousness. This is a space that surpasses the finitude of physical reality, a space where endless reports by innumerable minds draw your own mind into a continuous web of exchange, of dialogue and conversation, “feedback” and comments that expand your intelligence and erudition toward an enlightenment of mind the old analogue world could never deliver.
Or does it?
