Avatar

Avatar, in Hinduism, descent of a god into the world of human beings for the duration of a human life span. Avatar differs from the Christian concept of incarnation in two significant ways: A Hindu god can become incarnate in many places at the same time through "partial" avatars (amshas), and the avatars neither fully participate in human suffering nor lose their divine knowledge and power.
Jorge Luis Borges

Influence

One concept corrupts and confuses the others. I am not speaking of the Evil whose limited sphere is ethics; I am speaking of the internal linkinfinite.
internal linkJorge Luis Borges (1899-1986), Argentinian author. Avatars Of The Tortoise (1939; repr. in Other Inquisitions, 1960; tr. 1964).

AVATAR- From a modern, internal linkInternet perspective, the term avatar was first adopted from internal linkNeal Stephenson to refer to the psychological persona people take on when they anonymously enter cyberspace. However, it is increasingly being used more literally as a term for the icons representing a user in a certain programs on the Internet. [First used from an Internet perspective in 1992 in internal link_Snow Crash_, by Neal Stephenson, in one of those self-fulfilling SF prophecies. Stephenson got the namefrom the Hindu concept of avatars, which arethe personification of various deities or entities.

"...The space-time metaphor represents a monumental failure of internal linkimagination....We've been thinking about internal linkvirtual presence as if we have to send our bodies out there. [But] if we could design internal linkreality for our minds, what powers would we grant ourselves? The ability to be anywhere instantly would be a step in the right direction. The ability to be everywhere, all at once, without going mad, is the real challenge. Why should we settle for avatars, when we can be angels?"
