Virtual Worlds

Benjamin Woolley Virtual Worlds 1992
quoting Jaron Lanier
“It’s very hard to describe if you haven’t experienced it. But there is an experience when you are dreaming of all possibilities being there, that anything can happen, ad it is just an open world where your mind is the only limitation. But the problem is that it is just you, you are all alone. And then when you wake up, you give up all that freedom. All of us suffered a terrible trauma as children that we’ve forgotten, where we had to accept the fact that we are physical beings and yet in the physical world where we have to do things, we are very limited. The thing that I think is so exciting about virtual reality is that it gives us this freedom again. It gives us this sense of being able to be who we are without limitation…”
