What you see is what you get – that‘s how our world works…right?

We live in a world with rules, that we know since we started exploring this world as little children and that we confirm with our own eyes every day.

In the virtual world these rules don’t exist. We can program them and simulate our reality. But we can also choose not to: Gravity – on. Gravity – off.

But what happens to our understanding of reality, if someday we can no longer distinguish between the real and the virtual world?
