Empire of Illusions

The distinction between reality and illusion in our society is about to disappear. What we don't have, we can get with our innate ability to deceive ourselves. And new technologies are there to help. We can dive into 3D worlds and forget ourselves completely. We can create new identities in the world wide web and buy as many friends as we wish. A course in positive thinking helps us believe that we are happy, pornography replaces our lack of love and knowledge is sold in take-away sound bites. Don't forget: it's not about what you know or who you are, it's about what others think that you know and who you are. An evening about the power, the comfort, and the danger of illusions.
