Jean Baudrillard and Hyperreality ,b. 1929, Reims, France
simulation:
-the process in which representations of things come to replace the things being represented . . . the representations become more important than the "real thing"
-4 orders of simulation:
1. signs thought of as reflecting reality: re-presenting "objective" truth;
2. signs mask reality: reinforces notion of reality;
3. signs mask the absence of reality;
-Disneyworld
-Watergate
-LA life: jogging, psychotherapy, organic food
4. signs become simulacra - they have no relation to reality; they simulate a simulation
-Spinal Tap
-Cheers bars
-new urbanism
-Starbucks
-the Gulf War was a video game

hyperreality:
-a condition in which "reality" has been replaced by simulacra
-Borges
-Baudrillard argues that today we only experience prepared realities-- edited war footage, meaningless acts of terrorism, the Jerry Springer Show

"You have been searching for us without knowing it, following oblique references in crudely xeroxed marginal "samsidat" publications, crackpot mystical pamphlets, mail order courses ... a paper trail and a coded series of rumors spread at street level ... and the propagation of certain acts of insurrection against the Planetary Work Machine and the Consensus Reality ... or perhaps through various obscure mimeographed technical papers on the edges of "chaos science" ... through pirate computer networks ... or even through pure synchronicity and the pursuit of dreams. In any case we know something about you, your interests, deeds and desires, works and days ... and we know your address. Otherwise...you would not be reading this..."

The fortress was originally built in the 10th century. Local legend holds that Vyšehrad was the location of the first settlement which would later become Prague.

After the creation of this world, the most beautiful angel longed to be more powerful than God. At that time the archangel Gabriel punched this rebellious angel of Light in the head and knocked a shiny gem out of his crown. The stone of the Light flew and lit up the stars, which created the Milky Way. The one who had lost his right to his name, because he was not carrying Light, now followed it.

A fragment of the stone of Light was dropped in the hill where Vysehrad stands today. There, at the secret place, uknown brothers pray on a certain day of the year, and accept the hidden light.

"The News stands depict the world as a sort of human zoo inhabited by raped mutilated murdered females and matching cave men.... outlusting the lustiest of animals...with a cynical contempt of human life and values "

An 'immortal' jellyfish is swarming through the world's oceans, according to scientists.

The Telegraph UK

The Turritopsis Nutricula is able to revert back to a juvenile form once it mates after becoming sexually mature. Marine biologists say the jellyfish numbers are rocketing because they need not die. Dr Maria Miglietta of the Smithsonian Tropical Marine Institute said: "We are looking at a worldwide silent invasion."
