Goodies in Virtual World


1. A virtual house which as luxurious as possible is available for anyone to possess without any cost. There is no material limitation to restrain your creativities. There is no one interfering your ideas. You can as greedy as possible to decorate it or visualize your dream house on screen.

2. A virtual relationship with a virtual person. You can perfect you virtual lover as possible as you can and having a virtual sex life with the one who can also be your soul mate. You can also have a responsibilities-free marriage if you like, or even ‘kids’ , ‘friends’ and ‘pets’.

3. Traveling around the world on your screen. It is also cost free to go to anywhere you want, even shopping or gambling.

4. Being a virtual hero ( virtual self ) in game. There is no safety concern at all and you can enjoy your virtual power as much as you can through experiencing virtual violence, even you may be actually a coward in reality.

But it's still not real. You can't live in your "perfect" house, you cant walk around it with your own two legs, you can't physically paint the walls and experience the hassle that building a house can be. Similarly, you can't give birth to a real child in the virtual world because you can't have real sex with your "virtual" partner. You may be able to "travel" wherever you want, but you can't take a photo of yourself in front of the Eiffel tower or get lost in the Alaskan wilderness, it's still a simulation. And whether or not you can be a virtual hero? If you want to spend time doing that, all power to you, but you can't compare to a real life hero (known about by more people than just those in the virtual community).

Yeah, we lost physical experience in virtual world...I somewhat believe that soul life is more real than physical reality.Besides, that so-called virtual world is just an alternative choice for us, isn't it...in fact we are all dreamers, and our dreams are drying day by day. Thats why movie, tv, music are popular,because these more or less fill up our emptiness in soul. Virtual world seems more real than our illusions.
