Transworld Syndrome

    “Let’s just dance until we disappear”

    Wow! A fun video that asks more powerful questions than its playful exterior lets on. And after all the confusion… let’s just dance!

    Identity, corporeality, existence are such difficult questions. We can dismiss avatars as silly, but if we engage their ideas, they can ask incisive questions that we don’t necessarily like the implications of.

    The dance of life
    The dance of the marionettes
    when all else fails… just dance…

    I can even have such conversations with myself in physical life you know . . .
    And when I’m sick of those talks I end them with: oh shut up and get a life.
