With virtual reality you can re-create environments, architectures, cities, and situations that are currently or were once found in nature, achieving realism of photographic quality. In the same way, you can re-create imaginary worlds of fantasy, invention and mythology. You can bring back memories of past experiences and known perceptions. If you are afraid of heights, leaning out from a coastal cliff in Capri, re-created in virtual reality, will provoke the typical feeling of dizziness. Immersive virtual reality should not be watched or observed, it must be experienced.
[…] human kind.
Cannot bear very
much reality. Thomas Stearns Eliot Burnt Norton 1935
