    I have the opposite strategy. I very much treat entities in there as what they are -- which is very fascinating and bizarre. Because you buy into the narrative, and so do they, and so the interaction becomes dream-like. I've felt that I've interacted with non-humans in VR several times. And I...

    Aliens

    Here's a tentative hypothesis: - Complexity (intelligence) in life is high-cost, and only happens as a result of selective pressures favoring higher processing power and flexible solutions. Homeostasis is more ideal, where a species survives just fine in its present form for billions of years...

    Aliens

    I like this question. Recently I've been watching biology/species videos and it's blown my mind away with the diversity that already exists in this planet. There are some species with 3+ sexes, or with no sex, and there are all sorts of different male/female mechanisms already here on earth...

    that made me laugh so much harder than it should have the only thing that could make it more analog is if the panels on the ceiling were hand drawn by robot hamsters every moment, then swapped out quickly to retain continuity.

    @Cognisant oh you're a desktop user? noooo ;p the headsets have really come down in price. for someone without a VR capable PC, Samsung Odyssey is definitely the way to go and can run on a decent PC or laptop at $322 USD refurbished here. for someone with a capable gaming PC already, the...

    I feel the same way. It's a lot of juvenile behavior at the moment, and not entirely of a sophisticated geek sort as the internet may have had at some point in its origins. There's lots of Pe energy going rampant, but the trick is to find those few intelligent people and friend them. Idiots...

    How do I change my username on this?

    If I recall, one of the major reasons why we didn't allow name changes was because of the structure of the forum database - which would be forced to modify hundreds/thousands of hard-coded entries in the mySQL... holding up the server forever. But since the migration to a new software, I don't...

    Went to watch it last night after seeing cog's recommendation (i'm like, Cog liked it? ...must be good) I liked it also.

    I love it! It doesn't feel like a game; it actually feels like a real place. And I have memories of being places that... are no less real than any I have of the real world. In fact, more vivid and unbounded. I would definitely recommend VR (even this first gen) for anyone curious. Don't wait...

    water is not wet

    semantics. :pueh: ok i'm in! how about we define wet as: covered/soaked with water or another liquid. a single molecule can't be wet because it's not a collective liquid, and so it can't be "covered" or "soaked" by itself. The question then is, can water be wet if it's wetting itself? Is the...
