i feel like video games will look like that before too long. so real, so smooth, that they're like hd pov video.
and thats when shit gets fucked up. because if you put a tv screen big enough to cover your entire field of vision, it's like it's you.
and then you somehow link your brain into the game to feel wind on your face, pressure on your feet, pain when you fall. it's like the screen is YOU.
or maybe, that's what's happening right now. maybe we're really little brain aliens across the universe and what we perceive now - our consciousness - is just our cameras, but we really aren't here.
and then when we die, we just go back to where we actually are, and then restart a new campaign. boot up a new camera on this place we call earth.
