As each sense
has been emulated
, so has a portion of our psyche
Our visual sense has been expanded beyond all semblance of what it began, distorting the square of the senses as Marshall McLuhan has put it, hypnotizing us. In a less McLuhanesque way of speaking, we can observe on the removal of colors from what they what were.
Sound, also, has been removed from the natural world. Yes, I, too, own a synthesizer, but am aware of what it is doing to my ear.
And now, smell is to be colonized. Now, one of the last redoubts of refuge from corporate exploitation is about to be invaded.
What remaining need is there for us to experience anything. As the computer takes up its purpose, what need is there to do anything!
