Where virtual reality is going

“In the early 1960s, I was sitting in a crowded New York theater watching one of the first dubbed Japanese monster imports. I was hoping the police would stop the huge lizard, who was clomping around, wrecking the city, toppling buildings, squashing humans I gradually became aware that the audience was cheering for the monster. A cultural shift had happened. I hadn’t known about it until then.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)
I want to sketch the path along which virtual reality is going.
Right now, companies are selling improved tech that allows a helmet-wearer to see landscape and people in a wider perspective, and hear layers of sounds to the left and right, and above and below him. He can also walk inside the virtual set up.
He can’t touch everything he sees yet, but that’s coming. And perhaps one day, he’ll be able to sit down at a lavish meal and smell and taste the food.
Sight, sound, touch, smell, taste. A five-sense envelope.
He’ll leap off a cliff, fly through the clouds, and attack a monster coming his way, and he’ll win. He’ll do this over and over, and begin to control his own attendant fear. (You can see the obvious military use.)
But…the money men behind virtual reality will want more. They’ll want to program the user’s reactions AHEAD OF TIME; his feelings, sensations, nervous-system responses, endocrine outputs, brain signals.
The full package.
“Press Button A on your remote and receive the complete experience as we give it to you.”
Eventually, there won’t be a button A. Buyers will want what they’re given.
That’s the threshold, the crossover:
Why try to imagine and create your own reactions? Why try to minimize your Pavlovian responses? The VR techs already have the answers for you.
And their answers are very much like a medical protocol.
Entrainment on multiple levels. This is where virtual reality is heading.
In the process, the basic principle of elite reality-building will be expanded: cut off the individual’s imagination; bury it; exclude it; make it unnecessary.
Because that imagination, and its ability to invent new unpredictable realities, is ultimately what stands between a locked-down planet and a planet that has a chance of freedom.
No matter what happens to this society, civilization, and culture, imagination has to stay alive.
There is, at any given moment, a whole level of solution and innovation that is in a state of hidden potential, that is uncreated and unknown…no one knows what these solutions are, because individuals haven’t invented them yet, haven’t dreamed them up, haven’t acted on them.
If, by burying imagination, you eliminate this level, what’s left is total control over the population.
