Fuck you, Matrix! Google Earth has you whipped!
I haven’t visited Google’s replica of our world in a bit, but as I am going on vacation to Europe soon, I thought I’d download the latest version and take a top-down view of some of the places I might visit.
Zooming in to one of the markets in Paris, I saw that as you got closer to the street level, M.C. Escher-like bubbles emerged that I could, like, step into as if I were visiting from another dimension, and then boom! I was in the market with a 360° view!
I don’t normally pee my pants over our dehumanizing modern technology, but this was just freakin’ neato. Can a TARDIS be far away?
