Truman Show Delusion

1,688

Published on

Media Life is a course intended for undergraduate students across campus. Its goal is to make people aware of the role that media play in their everyday life. The key to understanding a "media life" is to see our lives not as lived WITH media (which would lead to a focus on media effects and media-centric theories of society), but rather IN media (where the distinction between what we do with and without media dissolves).

  • What this means, is that we are all living inside our own TRUMAN SHOW, as the Jim Carrey character in the movie of that tile did: surrounded by omnipresent media, being recorded and monitored all the time, making and consuming media constantly, being connected to everyone else through increasingly digital, portable and networked media devices all the time - and unwilling or indeed unable to switch any of this off. The question now is: what skills and attitude do you need to cope with this kind of life? How do you survive inside your own Truman Show? THAT is what T101 is all about.
  • Key Issues: After considering reality as ruled by consensus (Google/Wikipedia), governed like a prison (Panopticon/Omnopticon), or works as a consensual illusion (Matrix), a final version of reality is an individual delusion In the movie, Jim Carrey portrays the only “True Man” in his world: Truman Burbank A delusion is not perception, nor hallucination; to the one being delusional, it is a belief that is (usually) persistent and (sometimes) lifelong What if Truman cannot escape?
  • panoptic reality: everyone is watching everyone else and we behave accordingly
  • wikiality: we can fit in only if we are “most” and “last”: like the google algorithm or wikipedia, if most people agree with us we will appear on top/our reality will be validated.
  • matrix: reality is a given and only I can change it if I convince everyone else to change it with me.
