Perception is reality- or is it? We live in a world so occupied with technological advances that synthetic matter can be mistaken as genuine. We live in a place so filled with artificial mass that it is difficult to decipher what is natural and what is man-made.

Our man made world will continue to grow and change and so will our perception and adaptation to it.
