Deception is an act to transmit beliefs that are not true or at least not the whole truth. It involves distraction and camouflage, where it obscures and breaks up the visual boundary of the object.
Half truths are meant to deceive through hiding.
Disguising your appearance to give the impression of being someone or something else you aim to dazzle to escape. It’s a distraction to remove someone’s attention from the truth.
An escape from reality can also be an escape from lies and betrayal.
