Where humanity is going? We actually need the real world as conscious beings? Is a future like matrix a good option for the human kind?
 
Nature is a stepmother that doesn't love us, we go trough pain illness and sadness cause of her, because we are living beings with all the problems that comes with us.
 
Virtual reality is a window to a perfect word, a world that we desire it could be true.
A world that can be designed and fitted for us exactly as we wish.
 
Sure it is the future of humanity, not as we know it right now, bu as how it could be.
 
What defines you as an individual being? Are you your body? A group of living cells? Or are you the group of your memories? What really matters when it comes about humanity?
 
When it comes about virtual worlds, your body doesn't matter, only your memory, your willingness, and your consciousness matter, you are just you with not material limits. This is a world we could wish for, because it's the only way we can get a perfect world.
 
Reality that includes our bodies it's a circus of contradictions and conflicts, that rather goes in a constructive way, life on earth is hell for the most of humans, why should we desire less if we can achieve more? Welcome virtual worlds, the beginning of paradise on earth.

Virtual worlds will probably become more popular as they become easier to use.  However I think that there has to be a healthy balance between RL and VR. 

As problematic as RL can be, I wouldn't want to give up the sheer beauty and wonder of the RL natural world.  I also never want to live my life in a 'matrix' world no matter how real it seems.  It would be too easy for those in charge to manipulate us.

I do not want a perfect world.  I prefer an imperfect world, one with challenges and obstacles and questions and discovery...I want a world where we are put to the test and encouraged to to grow.

There is absolutely no point to your incarnation to experience only bliss.

Living in a world exactly as you wish would put you at odds with the other 7 billion souls trying to live the world exactly as they wish....it seems to me we are already living in that world.

i agree with Solaria

i used to think once that I would rather go to Heaven than Hell, which I think can be taken to mean some kinda virtuality. I since come to understand that heaven would be hell in its own way as well

i since also come to understand about Purgatory, a third kind of virtuality. The place between Heaven and Hell where we faced with choices, challenges and conflicts between good and evil, pain and pleasure, the whole yin yang balance thingy, etc. The consequences of our choices and the consequences for others also from our choices, and their choices on us in turn

if what we are in now is a virtuality already then I think we in Purgatory now and if one day I end up some place other than this place then I hope to not go to any heaven anymore, virtual or real. I hope to go to another purgatory where I have to deal with the realities of the others there and the realities of the choices I must make

You raise some good points.  SL is a virtual world but it sure isn't perfect, and I am not referring to how real it looks or runs.

Humans aren't perfect and never will be as long as there is free will.  They'd have to take away our free will for all humans to act 'perfect' and I won't give that up. 

Besides, who is to decide what is perfect?  Perfect for me wouldn't be any one else's perfect.  The only way it could be perfect for me is if all the people acted the way I want them too.  There goes that free will problem again.

Perhaps virtual reality will spark another sea change in our behavior just as online shopping has greatly affected brick and mortar stores. I'm thinking of a future generation that grows up in a virtual world who don't see the need for getting a house or any material things. Isn't that what people strive for? To let go of our constant materiality and endless consumerism?

My worry about that topic is that the human race will end up more anti-social than it is.  Look at all the Trolls wandering the grid now, looking to cause problems for kicks, because "its the internet and not really REAL".

Hopefully that will change for the better :-)
