To some people, let’s just call them gamers, the world consists of bits and bytes. The virtual reality merges with the real world – if there even is such a thing as a real world, of course.
It’s easy to lose yourself in a virtual world, to inhabit and become the characters and avatars present on the screen in front of you. It’s a case of oversensitive empathy, throwing your mind forward into a simulated other, feeling and sensing what that small construct of pixels and polygons does, as though they are part of your own physical self.
