Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • As simulations proliferate, they come to refer only to themselves: a carnival of mirrors reflecting images projected from other mirrors onto the omnipresent television and computer screen and the screen of consciousness, which in turn refers the image to its previous storehouse of images also produced by simulatory mirrors.

    Jean Baudrillard

  • When examined from an architectural point of view, this set of simulatory rules may or may not reside on a remote server; it might be a consensus set of data and interactions distributed across a P2P network.
