Eggs that hatch online, in the imagination, grow wings and claws in real houses

“People are able to completely transcend what they are in real life and live a different life entirely. This is such a paradoxical time right now. It is the age of information and the age of misinformation. There was a time when people thought that something printed in a newspaper must be true. It’s not like that online, but it almost is. You go through an urge when you see a screen name and a profile and you immediately think, oh, it must be true, but then you realize that it’s just words, and that anybody can say anything at all.”
