The concept of “narrative” that I often use to show the gradual divorce from reality has been described in the past, and better than I do, from a certain Baudrillard. Baudrillard calls “simulacrum”, or “simulation”, and by this he means that there are “maps of reality” that today have taken the place of reality itself. I disagree with Baudrillard because I believe that these maps are not “a sinister product of consumerism” or “postmodern”, but they are a need of ‘Homo Incompetens.
