CREATING/MAINTAINING MULTIPLE VERSIONS OF OUR SELVES
or MEDIASCAPE ?
WHO DO WE THINK WE ARE?
“Entering cyberspace can be a sign of an authentic search for personal encounters with others, provided that attention is paid to avoiding dangers such as enclosing oneself in a sort of parallel existence, or excessive exposure to the virtual world. In the search for sharing, for ‘friends’, there is the challenge to be authentic and faithful, and not give in to the illusion of constructing an artificial public profile for oneself.”
there is the sense that the ordinary is changed or different, and that there is particular significance in this; this is coupled with a searching for meaning; a profound alteration of subjective experience and of self-awareness, resulting in an unstable first-person perspective with varieties of depersonalization and derealization, disturbed sense of ownership, fluidity of the basic sense of identity, distortions of the stream of consciousness and experiences of disembodiment. Paolo Fusar-Poli, Oliver Howes, Lucia Valmaggia & Philip McGuire in The British Journal of Psychiatry – September 2008
