Then Civil suit wise you can sue for ANYTHING..
Doesn't matter. Nobody will be leaving their rooms anyway. You can go to college on your computer and you'll be doing it for decades. AI's and
machines will be doing most of the work. And there's less and less reason to get out. Why? It's so much easier to stay on the computer.
On your computer it's easier to control reality. You can ignore and block more easily. It's safer. The same laws will still apply online, but it's the
insular nature of computers is a stark contrast to RL.
Just to maintain some real world value we'll be going to college for increasing lengths of time. A small highly skilled work force. Living expenses
will be cut by reducing our living spaces to minimum. Nobody will care about that because they have their computes. Do you care about material wealth
if you can have mansions and spaceships on your computer? On the computer you can be Elvis, you can be the king. The american dream! A big house.
Great wife. Lots of children. Everything is perfect. It's virtual, so no GHG footprint or pollution from all the properties and possessions you own.
The only footprint is your small living space and teh computer you use.
Don't dismiss it. In 20 to 50 years computer graphics will look nearly indistinguishable from RL. We're already well on this road. REality is becoming
augmented. It's blurring. The ground isn't solid. People and faces are fluid. We're caught in a uncertain dream favoring those who change easily and
What about reproductioin? There'll be a increasing influence of medical and science and government into family affairs. Someday children will be born
by a single parent and moved to nurseries early. There won't be "families" as we know them. Males and females and agenders will have children. There
doesn't have to be two parents. Parents will be emissaries of their children, only occasionally being involved directly in their life.
Don't read that too seriously. It's not worth reading AFAIK.
