Event: An Unreal Party?

"...we now have 3D and the apologists say it is more realer than real. Do we need that ? Shouldn't we be putting our energies into something more worthwhile? The human imagination is surely the most amazing thing in the universe. We do not want virtual reality we want virtual unreality. We cannot replicate reality - why are we wasting our time trying?"

Eupalinos Ugajin added the quote to his invitation in Flickr for the party on his LEA sim today. The quote is taken from an interview with Peter Greenaway, given for the UWA blog. Read the full interview here. I love the quote because I love the approach. RL has its boundaries, but here in SL are almost none of them and we should make use of it.

But I have to disagree, because I know who quoted. Let me tell you a story from the opening of Art India Gallery on Friday. Eupalinos and I stood at the landing point in William Weaver's 'build 010', when someone landet on Eupanlino's virtual head. As far as one talk of a head in his case. He is famous for his crazy and constantly changing avatars.

So the lady apologized that she landet on himand he answered: "Have in mind, we have no real bodies here." And there is the point where I cannot disagree enough. Our 'Real World" is virtual as well. We experience it as a picture created by our brain which used the impressions from our senses. Let me give you an example: Imagine the atomic nucleus has the size of a pea and is placed in the center of a large football stadium; the closest electrons in the atom would be spinning around outside the outermost reaches of the stadium's upper seats. An atom is nothing more than a tiny of swinging energy. How comes that we experience the real wold different? Well, that's the virtual picture created by our brain!

An the end all worlds are virtual. And this is one more reason to have the Virtual Unreality Party today. The contributing artists will be some of the coolest and craziest creative people in SL: besides Eupalinos Ugajin,  Kikas Babenco, Marmaduke Arado, Simotron Aquila, Trill Zapatero and Maya Paris.

It will not be just another party, it will be THE party!

Today, Sunday at 3 PM SLT!
