Media life and death

Well when I think what t101 was about to me, I think that the course was interesting and it furthered, deepened, and informed me more already on my stance on reality and media. I wondered if you could leave media life but it seems like you can’t. You are always connected. There is no escaping media life even after you are dead your facebook ghost becomes a shrine to you. We talked about this in discussion deeply and its interesting that the only way to escape is to destroy it all and move to the woods somewhere,which would be incredibly difficult, but sense we live in a media world the only way we have a effect on the real world is through a virtual one and the real world effects the virtual. Its like this two street that’s kind of a contradiction. An abstract man made up idea like the internet has such an impact on our lives but yet we cant touch it, its not reality. Its seems that these classes of what is real and what is truth is really murky. We can decide whats true, we have a lot of say in what our reality is more now then ever. Its scary and amazing at the same time and if you don’t want to be a part of it well you can’t turn the media life off.
