The technological phenomenon that has taken the world by storm.

Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality have no doubt made it to the top of the technological innovation hierarchy; up there with CryptoCurrency and Artificial Intelligence.

But I think the true essence of the technology has been lost with all the technical mumbo jumbo of creating “Realistic Experiences”.

Now I do not know about others, but I’m a man of simple needs.

I need my bananas to not go soggy and my bread to not be mouldy.

Augment Reality has played a huge role in my life in curing my long-hard battle with crippling depression.

It has allowed me to look at life with a new perspective; a new ‘Reality’.

Last week I got told I’m a lousy writer, so I just went ahead and augmented that reality — I now believe I’m in the all time greats; right next to Dostoyevsky and Orwell.

My girlfriend cheated on me, no problem at all, I just went ahead and augmented that reality with I never had a girlfriend.

When my parents tell me I’m useless and should get a job, I go ahead and augment reality by making them realise I’m actually a successful Hedge-Fund owner.

I added too much salt to our family respite for pasta, failing again to figure out how to deal with this situation; I simply augmented it. And soon realised I went too far, maybe that was too much augmentation — because the pasta could’ve used a little bit more salt.

I got hit by a truck, had limbs torn off and my insides rolling around on the road like confetti as people gathered to look down upon me as I suffered in misery. I told the people not to worry, as I was just about to go ahead and augment reality.

It truly worked.

I’m now a multi-millionaire augmented reality healer making millions from helping others around the world to solve problems such as Poverty, Hunger, Terminal Sickness, Climate Change…to name a few of my escapades.

I soon plan to branch out and try my reality augmenting skills at convincing people of the world to accept me as their ruler — and soon with my unwavering faith in my Augmented Reality abilities, I shall achieve that too.

I failed to learn the piano, so I decided I’d play the keyboard instead. //All aboard the Crazytrain.
