“Simulacra’ is a term I first learned through Don Delillo’s novel “White Noise”, but it was coined by  french philosopher Jean Baudrillard in the 80’s. The concept is much better defined by an entire novel but to try to simplify, simulacra describes a relation between life and society as a kind of simulation. The lack of thrill, complacency, and detachment of the human condition, and the idea that there is something or someone just out of sight keeping the cogs turning.
