Bjørn Melhus is interested in the degree of reality of such constructions of personal and social egos. He takes advantage of video portals such as YouTube or the virtual world Second Life not only as archives, a source of material and an invitation to steal, but also as serious partners for the description of a reality that defines itself as something between the material and the immaterial, the physically human and the metaphysically superhuman. It is even more important, then, to establish who their political and ethical authorities are.
