The Future is Now
The difference between VR and other types of media is that it feeds very rapidly into your consciousness. Within fifteen seconds or so, the virtual environment absorbs your physical senses and your visual and auditory capacity become entirely immersed in whatever reality you are experiencing at the time. It is unlike television in that if you turn your head away from what you are looking at, you are still in the simulation. You can look all around you just as you do in real life.
In our simulations, you even have a digital body and hands to pick things up with. You are no longer in the real world. You are in the world that we have created for you.
