Are Real "or" Virtual Still Relevant?
Are virtual worlds really the future of commerce?
Are all tomorrows really visible?
Can virtual environments really heal the planet?
Can you profit from Singularity?
Will the office actually become obsolete?
While the scenaric thinking referenced above is inspiring, and at times visionary, I don't think that they are definitive. The reason is "Virtureal" as you might have guessed. More specifically, these are not Real "or" Virtual scenarios, they are BOTH. The virtual interactions not only affect our collective consciousness, but also the physical world manifestations of that consciousness.
The furniture design image from MIxko above succinctly explains it non-verbally :)
