A beautiful lie

I read a profile recently, where the author talked about truth versus lies. Her thoughts were that we don’t really seek the truth, although we think we do. What we actually seek are beautiful lies, which mask the truth. We don’t want to know the truth because that will burst the little bubble that we live in. Her theory was that Secondlife is a beautiful lie and what resonated with me was that she’d cleared out her profile but left this statement intact. An epitaph to her emotions at the time she wrote it. Now, I don’t know this lady or her circumstances. I certainly wish her well and I hope that wherever she is, she’s in a happier place. I’m left wondering what we consider our ‘truth’ to be and what our limits are online. I don’t believe SL is at fault because we make our own choices and we determine our own limits. But I do agree that it can be perceived as a beautiful lie….a catalyst for what people bring into it, rather than anything more sinister.

    1. Agreed whole heartedly. SL is a playground where people can explore their limits and fantasies….and live with the consequences of their actions. In my mind, you can’t hold it accountable for anything.
