The aforementioned use-value of objects does not disappear; it is rather inscribed into their exchange-value, for the free exchange of both signs and objects makes for a much more efficient control over reality. Reality can now be simulated through and generated by models which are the products of a free exchange of signs and objects. Both the bodies of fictions which constitute mythology and technologically produced commodities participate in the network of signification; they are an integral part of the symbolic order.
We not only consume technologically mass-produced objects, but also the myths they are made to tell through advertising. Katherine Hayles offers the following definition of virtuality: Virtuality is the cultural perception that material objects are interpenetrated by informational patterns.
In Western post-industrial societies technology increasingly produces virtualities that intersect the world of objects to an ever greater extent. Mythology, then, may be considered as a very particular informational flow that traverses both the virtual world of information and the actual world of material objects. Under the conditions of advanced capitalism technology is completely interpenetrated by mythology; they come to fuse both in the material and immaterial manifestations of the commodity form.
Myths of the technological subject: the Cyborg and the Net Two distinct but interrelated techno-myths that partake both of the technological order of reality and the imaginary order of fiction inasmuch as this distinction still holds in the light of the above-outlined textual space they seem to share are of particular significance for my argument: the cyborg and the net. The cyborg as a material entity incorporates natural and artificial, organic and inorganic elements; it subverts the boundaries between the human and the non-human, the technological and the biological, the original and the copy, the self and the other.
The net, on the other hand, in its distinct but inextricably intertwined manifestations of virtual realities and simulations, constitutes an electronic, conceptual space which is structured by the binary series of the digital code Gaggi The first part of this paper will deal with the figure of the net.
At the very heart of the symbolic order, however, lies a traumatic, real kernel which cannot be integrated into the symbolic fabric of the network of the signifier. The important point to be grasped is that this void in the Other is precisely the non-symbolizable Real at the very heart of the symbolic order.
Fantasy, thus, fills in the gaps opened up in the symbolic order by this pre-symbolic kernel. Although it does not exist it still produces positive effects in the sense that it causes what a subject experiences as distortions in the symbolic order.
The matrix may be conceived as a simulacrum, a copy without original, an image which is no longer distinguishable from the real Baudrillard The simulacrum, however, does not undermine the demarcation line between the image and the Real in the above-outlined Lacanian sense ; it rather subverts the boundary line between actual reality and simulated virtual reality.
These fantasies, moreover, mask the fact that there is nothing beyond the increasingly interwoven symbolic orders of actual and virtual reality; they fill in the gaps opened up by the traumatic encounter with the void of the real — or to quote Baudrillard: The great event of this period, the great trauma, is this decline of strong referentials, these death pangs of the real and of the rational that open onto an age of simulation.
This is maybe one the most problematic features of his work.

And I would not say that I use this word rigorously. It would make no sense for me because it at once potentializes hyperreality and is the real as such Baudrillard Both these fantasies reassert fictions of self in the face of technologies that undermine the very parameters that have always been taken as safeguarding stable identities. The second part of this study will investigate the figure of the cyborg.
In her Cyberpunk and Cyberculture Dani Cavallero writes: Mythology and technology collude primarily on the territory of corporeality. Mythobodies bodies forged through the coalescence of the natural and the supernatural and technobodies bodies produced by the encounter of the biological and the artificial are hybrid compounds which underscore the brindled [sic] character of embodied subjectivity.
The body, thus, emerges as a privileged site for the fusion between mythology and technology.
Furthermore, the corporeality epitomized by the cyborg does not stand in opposition to the apparently immaterial, purely conceptual space of both the actual symbolic order of reality and the virtual symbolic order of the matrix. On the one hand, the virtual, informational, immaterial datascape of the matrix seems to imply a sort of transcendence of the body which is borne out by the fact that Case disdains the body as meat Gibson a ; on the other, the experience of cyberspace still relies on the physical sensorium which is connected to the matrix via a cyberdeck.
