Would Full Dive VR cause human extinction?

Recommended Posts

supercaraddict

If we have full dive VR would there still be people living in real life? Maybe it will be an extinction level event? I am mainly referring to systems such as Neuralink(Brain Computer Interfaces), Nervegear, Nanobots, some kind of nerve block, not headsets.i.e sao, the matrix etc

Excluding factors such as morals and religion, eating and drinking, bodily functions, , need to reproduce.

Maybe some people will fetish the real world and refuse to leave the real world?

Maybe the definition of reality could be extended to include VR metaverses as viable living spaces

In VR people can do things such as fly, and do magic effects which can't be done in the real world which increases their happiness. Or even people can have virtual girlfriends, kids or families.

Would real life cities, towns and municipalities become ghost towns if this was to happen?

Will this happen soon?(in 10-25 years?)

Thanks

@Awful Waffle Those are some darned evocative paintings.

 

One thing that bugs me, though, lol: In the first one, I can't see how the unit would actually fit into the receptacle, with the cable sticking out of the middle like that, plus no accommodation for the cable where it emerges from the unit. This wouldn't matter if the user attaches the cable, but that's an unlikely arrangement for obvious reasons. I just can't see it as anything other than a mistake, which is really unfortunate considering the talent on display.

Will veganism cause the extinction of meat eaters?

it's from a series known as The Electric State by Swedish artist Simon Stålenhag.

the title of this thread alludes to the concept of the story. it's pretty awesome science fiction. I would love to see it made into a film someday. or a quality TV series.

 

...it's about an alternate history where a semi-futuristic and ultra-consumerist society became addicted to a highly realistic and deeply alluring world of VR networks.

this network was created and maintained by the largest entertainment conglomerates.

 

Fdbr4g0.jpg

it started out pretty benign, more or less. the natural evolution of technology. the new national pastime.

the corporations were just colluding in order to sell more goods to people who were now hooked on their services. like any upstanding business would do.

humanity was not prepared for the long term affects of such intense and rapid-onset of VR addiction or its total consumption.

by the time a serious problem was recognized it was too late to go back. the technology was ubiquitous and inescapable.

instead of helping those who were suffering, the networks became increasingly intoxicated with the influence and control they held over the population, as they had become more powerful than any single government.

VR manipulations could indoctrinate people; turning them into fanatical supporters of whichever corporate brands they were linked to, willing to go along with more radical, elaborate, and sinister technologies.

with the incredible power of their VR systems now tied to the real world, the networks mobilized their user base and had their own customers engage in war games with each other, believing of course that their actions were limited to the virtual space.

instead they were tricked into waging actual war across the land with giant battle mechs. all the while assuming they were just playing a video game.

resistance is - of course - futile...

When I look on that last painting I have the easiest time in the world imagining a video game that could finally equal and surpass BioShock's ability to deliver an unsettling, sinister, and uniquely atmospheric experience.

For that to happen, I believe that VR would have to be acessible for everyone. For now it's still a niche market, and even when VR becomes popular, not everyone will have it, there's also the fact that VR will never be able to replicate things like human touch, so I don't see that ever happening.

lol no way.

I've got all his books. Simon is my favorite concept artist since Syd Mead.

 

why did you talk to him? more importantly, where can we listen to this interview?

his work would for sure make a great video game. there's actually a game right now that sort of reminds me of his stuff.

it's called Generation Zero. https://store.steampowered.com/app/704270/Generation_Zero/

 

it's nothing like Simon's universe. completely different story obviously. it just happens to have some big robots and a similar atmosphere. the reviews are also mixed so /shrug

that's funny. I'm dyslexic or something.

thanks for the link. the man is crazy talented. I don't know why nobody has adapted his work into some kind of drama yet. it's ripe for the big screen.

 

if anyone else is interested in this art, you can buy Simon's books here.

I don't believe VR will ever get as serious as described in OP neither, but we seriously can't deny how advanced and complex machines for simulation (and stimulation  ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) can or will be in 10 years. Any greasy f*ck with something of a brain and enough money could probably already now set up a 360 degree threadmill, a bed with automatic lifts and a $4000 sex doll with heating which is all it takes to live the fantasy of virtually starring in a pr0n.

 

The year 2077 is already here and it will only become more degenerative.
