Nowadays, we are invited to think about these relations among the world of images (virtual) and the world of objects (real) everytime everywhere. The representation of the object is getting more importance than the real object itself.
The supervaloration of images added to the high possibilities of manipulate time and get more and more speed with machines which do works faster than humans may generate fashion things such as animations, spectecular shows of technology and all great programs of computers very nice and usefull for diverse tasks. It is really changing the environment where we live, even the way we think and , consequently, relationships as well.
The representation of an object is taking the place of the real object and there are some reflexions we should make about this subject before it gets out of human control, if it slready didn't. It's time for virtual courses, virtual culture, virtual friends, even virtual love affaires...
However, the whole is not very simple as it might seems. This process changes codes of language and communication affecting people in general all over the world. Different codes are created and it fragments the process of communication, expressions and comprehension among people of various cultures and regions.
The fragmentation gest velocity and leave the notion of time and space instable, which affects the subjectivity. There is no more safe place or predicted time for anthing. It is all kind of beyond human possibilities of control. Speed is the main point in all these changes.
People have develloped machines that work better than they do. Nobody knows what way it is going to lead us. Scientists prevew chaos in little time if no providences and cares were taken. And they don't seem to be taken.
