Abstract

In the twenty-first century, mass consumption of media has occurred through the Internet (social media). Recently, this situation has intensified changes in individuals’ social and political lives and their relationships with the media. Two theories can be used to compare the terms of two different realities regarding the mass consumption of media: simulacra in Jean Baudrillard’s simulation theory and zuhur in Gediz Akdeniz’s chaotic awareness simulation theory. This chapter discusses the complexity of science in the experience of mass consumption of media, specifically the relationship between simulacra and zuhur.
