“At least it hides the face partly.

Well, so you have the apparent face, the apple, hiding the visible but hidden, the face of the person.

It’s something that happens constantly.

Everything we see hides another thing, we always want to see what is hidden by what we see.

There is an interest in that which is hidden and which the visible does not show us.

This interest can take the form of a quite intense feeling, a sort of conflict, one might say,

between the visible that is hidden and the visible that is present.”

“Extension and identity theories may be the keys to understanding why it has become increasingly pertinent to ‘exist’ as a disembodied, extended self online rather than merely a corporal self in the ‘real’ world. These extensions deserve to be explored in depth to better understand the mind-altering effects of our irrepressible yet misunderstood relationship with technology.”  

–Marshall Mcluhan

The medium acts as an extension of consciousness.
The medium is still the message.
