Apocalipsis de la Comunicación Total
ABSTRACT: This paper deals with fantasies of universal connection and total communication which culminate in a hellish or utopian apotheosis. These are exemplified with Olaf Stapledon's novel Star Maker (1937) and the film The Matrix (1999), written and directed by the then Wachowski brothers. The paper focuses on some reflexive aspects of these fictions and on their relationship with their cultural background.
