Historically, Plato developed the notion of “Theatrum Mundi” – the Theatre of Life. It is a place where people are just puppets, actors, and their only task is to play their role. Life, on the other hand, is governed by a powerful figure, known as the creator (Demiurge, God). Nowadays, this role is assumed by mass media, which we are exposed to every day. They have an increasing influence on us, as well as on our lives and behaviours. People today are immersed in mass culture and lost between two worlds: the real world in which they live and the world created by the media.
