Pope Benedict XVI has warned that people are in danger of being unable to discern reality from fiction because of new technologies, and not old books. “New technologies and the progress they bring can make it impossible to distinguish truth from illusion and can lead to confusion between reality and virtual reality. The image can also become independent from reality, it can give birth to a virtual world, with various consequences — above all the risk of indifference towards real life,” he said.
