Mike Mills techinically died in 2032. Luckily for the female
population of the universe, Lyla Toomney is a through researcher and an
excellent Holographic Reality (HR) programmer. Mike is a holographic
clone of Mike Mills, circa 1994. He's fairly complete, but, due to a
period of information loss around 2050, there were large gaps in his
personality that Lyla had to make up. Hence, while Mike looks, sounds,
plays and sometimes acts like the original Mike Mills, there are major
differences between the clone and reality. Mike and the rest of the
members of R.E.M. circa 1994 exist inside an HR system Lyla programmed.
One of the biggest differences between Mike and his fellow band mates
is that Lyla spent more time programming him than she did the others.
Hence, his organic programming that allows for personality growth is
more extensive. In short, Mikey's not content with playing life, as
Michael Stipe put it in a conversation to Lyla.
