The VirtuReal Yin and Yang?

Gabe sent me this link on The Metaverse today which outlines a totally Virtureal scenario from the not too distant future.

This got me thinking about where's the "balance" between experiencing what's real and what's virtual? I think one way to look at this is see VirtuReality like the Yin and Yang concept.

On one side, we have VIRTUAL items connecting to physically real objects, appliances, etc. to affect change such as:

Ambient Devices and Bug Labs Crowdsourced Gadgets

On the other, we have REAL locations and objects being connected with geotagged input from all of us.

The combination of the two offer balance of connected consciousness in a VirtuReal world.
