Virtual reality vs real life

Post by newuser » Wed Sep 17, 2014 3:45 am

Hello I'm new here and I've been doing research on how biology ties into VR and I need help with 3 questions

1. In VR could you change things like your sexuality in VR or your appearance ?

2. In VR could you do things or create things that aren't impossible in real life ?

3. Could your body be asleep and live in something such as a flotation tank and your mind in VR ?

1. Probably so unless the specific virtual reality's purpose is to resemble reality as much as possible then I supposed not. But not because it would be impossible but because rules would forbid.

2. I think you wanted to say that 'are impossible in real life' and yes why not. There might be a virtual reality where you could actually fly because why not

3. In a future (further or nearer) most definitely yes
