I tend to see "virtual reality" as of two different kinds, thus perhaps needing two different contrasting terms. "Brick reality" is a better opposite for the virtual reality that computer scientists work on -- the kind like the tunnels in Crichton's _Disclosure_. The other kind of virtual reality involves net life -- as opposed to ftf experiences. > Looks like non-electronic forms are becoming the marked ones. True. At least among net surfers. --Natalie (maynor[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
