the real is no longer what it was, nostalgia assumes its full meaning

“The real no longer exists –

it has no relation to any reality whatsoever;
it is its own pure simulacrum…

 It plays at being an appearance – it is of the order of sorcery…

It is no longer of the order of appearances, but of simulation. “

‘when the map has come to precede the territory’
