DEEP FAKING - faking reality in order to replace, subvert, augment, or otherwise influence the perceptions of othersWe are witnessing one of the greatest misdirection campaigns of our lives. Have you seen the news stories about so-called “deep fakes” and how computer-generated characters can subvert our reality?This is being hyped in order to distract the masses from the fact that we were all born into a world populated with deep fakes in positions of overt power and covert influence; that the technology required to deep fake a society existed long before computer graphics. In other words: stagecraft. Theatre itself is a tool of governance. We are intentionally confused about where the stage ends and reality begins; where the act ends and the real person begins; and about where the movies and the news media not only intersect but overlap.
