Rose is right when she claims "we dont want authenticity, It's what we think we want. What we really want is to go back to Pandora, even though we've never really been there in the first place." This applies to any desire people have, whether it was derived internally or environmentally it doesn't matter. When human beings want something, it better be real not fake and i'm sure we all can agree on that. Where the problem lies is that we end up obtaining a phony under the false pretense that it was authentic. This applies to any desire we may have : cinema, automobiles, literature, jewelry, clothing, music, recreational activities, and advertising. The advertisements themselves are authentic but the product being marketed, is not.
