Hello, I'm kind of new here so I'm just testing the water.
I found it funny that today I joined here in the morning, then saw the following link on The Onion about the Prisoner in the afternoon...

Just delete the 2 spaces there, I'm not a big fan of linking anywhere to anywhere else anymore. Current Mood: blank

Just a thought....
I was re-watching the episode "The General" the other day. And it kind of got me thinking that it reminded me of Wikipedia. Where everyone's knowledge and memorization of facts comes from one single source. Wherein when someone doesn't know something their instant thought is "I'll just take out my iPhone and Wikipedia it."

Number Six's London home
I had an hour to kill in London last night before going to the theatre. Thought I'd pay Number Six's home a visit.
Number 1 (ha ha), Buckingham Place. There's another pic here
. This little fix will tide me over until I get to Portmeirion again later this year! Current Mood: tired

Solipsism is the idea that a single individual is all that exists and that the perceived world is a creation of that individual's fantasy.
An idea that is nearly the opposite--that the world as the individual perceives it is an illusion created by an evil power for the purpose of deceiving the individual--is implicit in Descartes' fear that reality is the deception of an evil genius, against which he can at least prove his own existence by ergo cogito, ergo sum, in the teaching of O'Brien in 1984 that reality is what the party says it is, in the Prisoner where false realities are being constantly created to deceive No. 6 and it eventually seems that the reality he knew in London before coming to the village was just another such illusion, in Carperter's perhaps underrated film, They live, where the reality we see all around us is determined by alien mind control machines, and--so I am told--in the Matrix.
What is the name of this trope for the purposes of literary criticism?
