‘Keep Your Loved Ones Sort of Alive Forever’ (2015)

Here’s an icky idea that came out a few years ago and today makes me wonder if they haven’t already done this with certain of our politicians.

Keep Your Loved Ones Sort of Alive Forever

Yeah! Who needs a seance, when you can recreate somebody as the sum total of his lifetime’s worth of comments on the social media? You are what you tweet.

One thing’s for sure: if you bored people while you were alive, this way, you’ll bore them but good after you’re dead.

Has anybody checked to see whether Joe Biden can fog a mirror?

  1. You ask: “Has anybody checked to see whether Joe Biden can fog a mirror?” I answer, “Well, he’s been fogging everything else for a long time, so why not?”

    As for the rest of your post, heaven forfend that anyone should reconstitute me from all the stupid things I’ve said and written. 🙂

    Seriously, though, this is altogether symptomatic of our postmodernist (aka nominalist) culture, in which reality and illusion are considered to be interchangeable according to one’s current desires. Everything is a narrative. We construct our own reality. To name a thing is to make it what we name it, to call it into being. In other words, each of us — assuming that anyone outside myself even exists — is God.

    A good portion of our society has gone mad.
