All is not what it appears. In 1984, technology had not yet advanced sufficiently to render a computer animated agent as convincing as Max Headroom. By necessity, famously, Matt Frewer donned the prosthetics and gave us the first performances by a simulated simulated character. The expertise of a team of professionals, and hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of equipment, was required to fully reify Baudrillard’s precession of simulacra. The snake of the Ouroboros bit its own tail, presaging and celebrating the awkward stutter-uttering of the digital glitch so reviled in our day. A prescient, self-referential tribute to the triumph of the nerds became a touchstone, fossilized in the cultural bedrock of the 21st century. Is this a self-fulfilling prophecy, or perhaps a message from the future?

Dr. Yo’s Magic Lantern is not for everyone. Discontinue use and consult your doctor or witch doctor if you experience fatigue, nausea, or ennui.
