Virtual reality, what is it?
Defenition: Virtual reality is an artificial environment that is created with software and presented to the user in such a way that the user suspends belief and accepts it as a real environment.
Is life really any different. The body is the machine, the brain is the computer or software, the quote "real environment", is the world. We suspend our disbelief and identify with the the external world.
According to old cultures, and aincent wisdom, the world around us is a temporary reflection of what is actually real. The real being that which lies beyond sense perception, and mental power, the anti-material realm, also known as Vaikuntha, literally meaning "the place of no anxiety", which is not without personality, and variety.
The universe we live in although very beautiful, is temporary, and changes due to the influence of time. Everything has a beginning and an end. Although we would like it to be permanent.
