It is entirely possible that the true and authentic reality is being drowned out by the countless superficial information bits noisily and breathlessly presented in propaganda fashion. Consequently, one may be entirely knowledgeable about a thousand details and nevertheless, because of ignorance regarding the core of the matter, remain without basic insight. … Arnold Gehlen labeled it “a fundamental ignorance, created by technology and nourished by information”. …the place of authentic reality is taken over by a fictitious reality; my perception is indeed still directed toward an object, but it is a pseudoreality, deceptively appearing as being real, so much so that it becomes almost impossible any more to discern the truth.
