26c3 (part 2): parallel futures aren’t what they used to be

{ scooped and appropriated from a 26c3 image search, thx to whomever captured the vibe ! }

XLt presents Kill Your Avatars!

Disembodied information in utopia might provide some interesting fantasy outlets and MAYbe even some educational, evolutionary + transpersonal + psychodelic-like experiences, but given that societies are in a state of perpetual colonization, full of predatory mutants and consumer viruses, for one to enter into the avatar medium and imagine producing liberating futures is a highly problematic venture, if not delusional. And if you are aware of current individual and community obstacles to autonomy, believing that you will construct viable alternatives via the internalized machinery of the Military Entertainment Complex appears to be about as futile as trying to practice + globalize social justice in a 3-d ( strings, batons, and corporate media ) Heiligendamm puppet theater.

Is there nevertheless tactical value in multiple identities and augmented
realities? …
