“Is not the interface of a computer the last materialization of this frame? What defines the properly “human dimension” is the presence of a screen, a frame, through which we communicate with the “suprasensible” virtual universe to be found nowhere in reality” – It was already Lacan who pointed out that the proper place of Plato’s Ideas is the surface of pure appearance. This hole derails the balance of our embeddedness in the natural environs and throws us into the state of “out-of-joint”: no longer “at home” in the material world, striving for the Other Scene which, however, remains forever “virtual”.
