Now I want to do a deep-dive on literature that explores hyperreality and how it paved the way for social media, but I suspect there's not much there.

I was thinking specifically about when he says, "Disneyland is presented as imaginary in order to make us believe that the rest is real, whereas all of Los Angeles and the America that surrounds it are no longer real, but belong to the hyperreal order and to the order of simulation."
