“The television screen has become the retina of the mind’s eye…the battle for the mind of North America will be fought in the video arena, the Videodrome.

“Whatever appears on the television screen emerges as raw experience for those who watch it. Therefore television is reality and reality is less than television. Your reality is already half television.

“After all, there is nothing real outside our perception of reality (in this world), is there? The “new flesh” is the extension of the senses via the media. It spells Doom for all who are ‘entertained’ by IT. The eyes are the windows of the soul.”—from the movie Videodrome
