Transcending technology and self with VR

Michael Allison sends us on an ecstatic journey to explore ourselves and the tech that we surround those selves with –

Some of us now live in a world where the social and personal role of computation is playing an inextricable part in our lives. Computation is a window, a portal through which we see information, see entertainment, do our work and experience each other. Computers now create amazingly immersive screen-based experiences–I almost forget about the hardware entirely. That, however, is the root of my inquiry: what does it mean for me to spend so much time with this device what is my relationship to it?
