Embryos on the Way to Deepfakes

It was so startling and disturbing to witness that Tom Cruide deepfake that was unleashed on the world several days ago. The next day, there was already a deepfake of Gustav Mahler, taken from the famed photos taken of him by Moritz Nähr in the lobby of the Wiener Hofoper in 1907; and the next day, a deepfake of even Ralph Waldo Emerson!

Of course, if this radically reality-altering technology has permeated the goods of the 20th- and 19th-centuries, it has surely been tested already on our figures previously frozen unmoving in stone.

Reality will never — ever! — be the same again.
