Virtual Reality will Make Reality a Relative Term – Real Virtualities
“I have a feeling virtual reality will further expose the conceit that ‘reality’ is a fact. It will provide another reminder of the seamless continuity between the world outside and the world within, delivering another major hit to the old fraud of objectivity. ‘Real’, As Kevin Kelly put it, ’Is going to be on of the most relative words we’ll have.”– JohnPerry Barlow
“Immersion is the experience of losing oneself in a fictional world. It’s what happens when people are not merely informed or entertained but actually slip into a manufactured reality.”– Frank Rose
Psychic Continuity & Instructive Media
“Noam Chomsky talks about the psychic continuity. When we watch a piece of film, that is 24still images per second then you introduce editing, cutting and cross cutting, across time, across space, yet psychic continuity leads the events together and creates a contiguous experience. The human mind has no problem in orienting its awareness towards dimensions in which time is no longer linear.”– Jason Silva
“Gothic cathedrals (and IMAX theaters) provide instructive examples of the conscious use of artistic media – space, form, light, sounds – to produce religious-mystical, i.e. psychedelic, experiences.”– Timothy Leary
VR is the Second Wave of Human Evolution
“our destiny is to become what we think, to have our thoughts become our bodies and our bodies become our thoughts”– Terrence Mckenne
