Cybernaut Molly sent me this link to a Gizmodo article entitled "The Pope Doesn’t Want You Hanging Out In Second Life"
The pope is quoted as having said:
"New technologies and the progress they bring can make it impossible to distinguish truth from illusion and can lead to confusion between reality and virtual reality…
…The image can also become independent from reality, it can give birth to a virtual word, with various consequences—above all the risk of indifference towards real life."
It makes me wonder where pie-in-the-sky falls in his scheme.
