With the continuous innovation of artificial intelligence, virtual reality, 5G, and the progress of computer hardware equipment and network infrastructure, there are more and more moral dilemmas between virtual and the reality perceived by human beings. Taking the classical cave metaphor as an ideological resource, the information dissemination space created by big data can be regarded as a new data cave. The data cave shaped by technological rationality brings some new problems. It breaks the information dominance in the traditional era through technological empowerment, but it is accompanied by the risk of over-concentration of new data power; It not only enlightens the free personality of the audience but also makes the individual fall into a new data control network. Therefore, living in the data cave, it is very necessary to reflect on the over digitization trend of self and society. This paper attempts to sort out the relevance and differences between the virtual world and the real society in the increasingly complex technological ecology, and also try to find the basis and logical starting point to understand the moral dilemmas between them.
