The simulacrum is never that which conceals the truth--it is the truth which conceals that there is none. The simulacrum is true. Ecclesiastes If we were able to take as the finest allegory of simulation the Borges tale where the cartographers of the Empire draw up a map so detailed that it ends up exactly covering the territory but where, with the decline of the Empire this map becomes frayed and finally ruined, a few shreds still discernible in the deserts - the metaphysical beauty of this ruined abstraction, bearing witness to an imperial pride and rotting like a carcass, returning to the substance of the soil, rather as an aging double ends up being confused with the real thing , this fable would then have come full circle for us, and now has nothing but the discrete charm of second-order simulacra. Simulation is no longer that of a territory, a referential being or a substance. It is the generation by models of a real without origin or reality: a hyperreal. The territory no longer precedes the map, nor survives it.

There were only pieces of art, aesthetics and recreation. It is characterized by production of the scale of Fordism. Baudrillard says that the images or simulations during their second phase of development reproduce identical objects. There is reproduction of a motor car, a refrigerator. The reproduction at this stage is the repetition of the same object.

The simulations in this order misuse or corrupt the reality. There is always a place to play corrupt to the basic reality. It is the period of late modernity. This society is dominated by codes, signs and images. It is the society actually controlled and dominated by simulations. Baudrillard says that there is no way of identifying a real which exists outside of simulation, because we live in a society which is structured according to all sorts of beliefs, ideals and blueprints.

In short, reality is structured according to codes. Some codes are manifested indirectly in political ways — in the drafting of bills, the creation and enforcing of law, and so on.

Still more show themselves in the constant surveys, polls and questionnaires which classify the population according to their consumption patterns, income brackets, sexual orientations, and so forth. They are, in fact, hyper-real. In the third order simulations, there is total absence of reality. In the industrial society, production was dominant.

It was the production which controlled the society. This has changed the neo- cybernetic capitalist society.

Now, instead of production, reproduction controls the society. Baudrillard says that the culture makes all efforts to remove the differentiation between the genders. In fact, negativity has been banished by this culture. Baudrillard further exemplifies his point of view and says that at the fourth order of simulation there is no relation to any reality whatever, it is its own pure simulation.

We manufacture the real because of simulations.

So once again we find that the real is not so much given as produced which basically means that we cannot win. These viruses are of social nature. Our efforts to eliminate all negativity have left us with a declining ability to defend ourselves. The society feeds on the newest technological devices and fashionable products. Its appetite is quickened by ideas of culture, ambiance, style, novelty. Every hunger for identity, every thirst for freedom and every desire for social differentiation is satisfied in the consumption of products.

In this society, if we have to live, then we need to consume. There is nothing in this society that is not up for consumption. Life in this society revolves around commodities.

For Jean Baudrillard, the totalizing effect of consumption has seeped through all aspects of life, from culture and art to human relations. Strictly speaking, the humans of the age of affluence are surrounded not so much by other human beings, as they were in all previous ages, but by objects.

Today, health and well-being means a membership in a gym and drinking bottled fruit juices. Movies that are releasing nowadays are either remakes or rip-offs or spin-offs of films that have been already released before. Even education today has also been made into a commodity and it is now a type of business instead of real education.

People are made to believe that they need to download special creams to obtain good skin.

Consumption, and its attendant social system, survive as a language, which consumers choose to speak through, perpetuating it. Consumers are mutually implicated, despite themselves, in a general system of exchange and in the production of coded values.

They consume a system of signs. At the base of consumer society, there is a substantial communication system. It is through this system that the media float a large number of signs and imagines.

These signs and images constitute simulations. In the Indian market, in a limited way, the signs and images have come. There are signs for milk, shirting, refrigerator, TV, two-wheelers, cars and what not.

People download these objects or consumption articles through the images. These object images carry brand or sign value. They are status-loaded characterized by a particular brand. Those models through whom these signs are communicated also enjoy a celebrity status.

Film stars, national leaders and experts of various walks of life are also used to create images. The signs, therefore, do not have use value.

They only indicate exchange value. Representing the deity? So destiny images - suggests that God has always been his own simulation, one can live with distorted truth masked God but metaphysical despair follows from the idea that images hide nothing at all.

I When power was threatened by the real it risked simulation. When power is now threatened by simulation it risks the real crises But it is too late!!
