Social media follows in the footsteps of early cyberpunk fiction, attempting to persuade us of the myth that we are nothing more than the work we do and the fiction we present the world. Reality turns out to be more mundane: in both fact and fiction, we cannot exist or interact with the world outside except with our bodies. This leads us to the final realisation, that happiness lies not in curating a flawless representation of ourselves that we can hide behind but in engaging with those we trust without pretence and learn who we truly are.
