In this text I explore the use of strategies to create the illusion of reality and how interaction with technological simulations impacts human consciousness. The studied object is a particular system, described in a novel, which I interpret as a “multimedia”. What is notable is that this construction was conceived in 1940. Adolfo Bioy Casares, author of the novel “La invención de Morel”, describes a system for image and sound projection in multidimensional space. The system aims to give the illusion of reality to what is appearance, a simulation. At the time of its publication, the work was included in the fantastic genre. Today it is a text of scientific anticipation. The system described could be carried out with the use of New Technologies.
