Reality, virtuality and truth

At first glance, there is a feeling of academic papers: the research scope is limited to the three-dimensional era, and the research object is the beating incident in the context of the three-dimensional era. This can not help but ask readers: What is the three-dimensional era, which specifically refers to three-dimensional? Why is it not four-dimensional, five-dimensional, or even multi-dimensional? What is the difference between a “hit incident” in this context and a “hit incident” in a normal context?

Look at the text with these questions. The novel is divided into three chapters, which exactly echoes the “three dimensions” in terms of structure. In the first chapter, we saw a young man named Xu Yang, unemployment, falling out of love, deception and other frustrations of stimulation, a storm hit the beat liar. This is the first dimension of the novel, that is, the individual’s real life space. At the same time, the second-dimensional virtual space quietly appeared along with the personnel of the protagonist’s circle of friends, but here only played a role in fueling the occurrence of beatings. So far, the description of the “hit incident” has ended. Obviously, the author’s main purpose is not to tell readers a common incident of beatings. In the second chapter, the space of the novel is transformed into another individual’s real life space. A young man named Chen Wei happened to witness the whole process of beatings and completed the video recording of the whole process with an entertaining mentality. As a bystander who appeared halfway, she did not intend to make any judgment on the incident, but after a middle-aged woman made an outcry about the beating incident as the person who was informed of the incident, Chen Wei was also very naturally indignant Completed the information dissemination process with emotion. Once the information is transmitted, the next step is the acceptance and re-dissemination of the information. In the third chapter, the space of the novel is transformed into another individual’s real life space. In this space, the online information dissemination is synchronized with the offline acceptance activities. Zheng Kai and He Jian, the representatives of Internet users, watched the video. After that, they made various guesses with an entertaining mentality, but they did not intend to know the truth of the incident. At this point, the novel came to an abrupt halt, explaining the beginning and end of the “threatening beating incident in the three-dimensional era” in a literary way, which is profoundly self-evident.

“Dimension” is a kind of measurement. Different angles have different dimensions. According to the content and structural arrangement of the story, the “three-dimensional” in the text should refer to the real dimension, virtual dimension, and virtual dimension, or online space, offline space, and online and offline mixed space. These spaces have appeared with the advent of the information age. Because of the richness of life, they can be subdivided into personal private spaces and public spaces on the basis of three-dimensional spaces. These large and small spaces are crisscrossed with each other and airtight. Don’t run away from it. In this era of space, knowledge explosion, information flooding, and access to information resources have become one of the basic conditions for the public to make a living. In order to obtain information easily and conveniently, the self-media has emerged as a new means of communication. As a new thing, compared with traditional media, self-media has characteristics of autonomy, privatization, civilianization, and generalization. In a multi-dimensional space, the communication subject can be connected to the global knowledge system through modern and electronic means through platforms such as WeChat circle of friends, QQ space, Weibo, etc., and autonomously spread all kinds of them to unspecified groups or specific individuals. Ascertained facts and important information. This information comes in a variety of forms, such as text, pictures, videos, links, etc. The content is diverse and does not require any strict and standardized review. It is undeniable that self-media communication is convenient for the public to obtain information conveniently, express their personal position freely, and smoothly realize the “self-speaking” function, which to a certain extent represents the progress of society and the improvement of civilization. However, everything in the world is two-sided. While emerging technologies bring convenience to everyone, due to the temporary absence of corresponding laws and regulations and management systems, it will inevitably lead to uncontrolled management of the authenticity of disseminated information. Information is false information that has not been carefully researched and verified, or that the dissemination subject considers it to be true and authoritative but is essentially false information, and there are even ulterior motives who process and falsify false information for personal unspeakable purposes. Wait. What follows is that these flooded information poses a huge challenge to the ordinary people’s ability to identify authenticity, as well as spiritual beliefs and values.

Let us go back to the text. As a party, Xu Yang created a “beating incident” in his personal real space. The reason why he hit people was not the “mania and violence” as seen by Chen Wei and middle-aged women. However, Xu Yang, as an individual in real life, has no opportunity (even if he does not want to) to tell his neighbors and the world about his grievances. In this case, as witnesses and attendees of the incident, even though Chen Wei and middle-aged women saw it with their own eyes, they could only see the tip of the iceberg of the truth of the incident. This can’t help but be thoughtful, since no one present can easily see the truth of the matter, let alone those mass netizens who are hiding in the empty cyberspace. So, how do mass Internet users accept this information across the screen? What are the consequences of such information dissemination? We may wish to return to the text again. The two recipients in the article opened the video out of curiosity and watching the lively psychology. They did not make their own judgment on the beating incident, showing a spectator attitude of “don’t care about themselves and hang high.” It should be said that this spectator mentality is the mentality of most netizens. Judging from the appearance, such a harmonious attitude is harmless to humans and animals, but this indifferent attitude of worthless stance and spiritual dimension has in fact contributed to the hollowing out and nihilization of social atmosphere and the formation of core social values. No doubt there is great harm.

In fact, beyond the text, more netizens initially had a certain emotional standpoint and value scale. In the face of the violence in the text, enthusiastic people will come forward to condemn the perpetrators and express deep concern to the so-called innocent victims. Sympathy to express expectations and longing for a kind, beautiful, and uplifting social atmosphere. But unfortunately, after they paid attention to social hotspots or focus events with full justice, they reverted the plot overturns and official rumors, the enthusiasm was abraded a little bit, and the crisis of trust in the public dissemination of information gradually increased. Eventually led everyone to firmly believe that in the era of self-media, there were lies and illusions everywhere. Although the self-media brings the convenience of information dissemination and the freedom of self-speaking, it also declares the invalidity of obtaining information and the difficulties of obtaining effective information.

Of course, this article is a short story with a clear intention, not a well-proven, logically clear academic paper. It focuses on the topic of the times in which the masses are exposed, starting from a young age, taking the point and the face, and turning the ordinary into the typical. The confusion and crisis facing the public are experiencing a certain amount of realistic reflection. However, literature has never been able to solve the practical problems of society. One of the functions of literature is to present the form of society in the form of literature, to infect readers with concrete stories, and then to influence readers to participate in activities that transform society and give full play to literature. Unique social intervention function. In the current era of self-media, people are getting more and more information, but people are getting farther and farther away from the truth. Faced with the information of the mud and sand, the communication subject of good and bad, and the carnival and hollow social atmosphere of gradual public noise, entertainment to death, where should the rational people go, such topics need to continue to be interpreted in depth And thinking, and this is exactly the value and significance of literature.
