Let's assume "cyberspace," here put in quotes so as to grab hold of the term as if it were an actual thing in the physical world of material thought, is a new universe, a parallel universe created and sustained by the global computer networks. If the continuous flow of data throughout the "cyberspace" realm is always already interconnnected by the network technology that makes the dream of international data-transfer possible, then what does this do to the concept of hypertextual consciousness?

How do you feel about this? The possibilty of an Actual Matrix, where people have Emotion, Pain, Ecstasy, and Wonder. thumbsup.gif  

One night I ventured to my wooden rocking chair right outside my back porch, and I looked to the sky in the break of twilight, staring into the dark mirror of space, filled with sands of star dust, colossal supernovas and red giants, strings of wormholes and distant planets beyond my grasp. A place where tiny enigmatic hidden black holes tear through the fabric of space and time which, who knows; may lead into other dimensions and perhaps alternate realities. And as I look up at this heavens mirror which my hands can only reach so far through this looking glass, I felt an odd sensation of something looking back staring into my own eyes, staring into a whole other universe of which I new nothing about until I saw my reflection within it, and in that moment I then knew that the key which open the portal doors to parallel worlds was myself.    "The Eyes of the Universe, Chris Landrum"

Why not Moe? This is where Technology is leading us into. Where our world wil be controlled by nanotechnology, and Biological computers. thumbsup.gif

I find it quite simple for the idea of a man one day being capable of downloading himself into a V.R world.

I don't know about you guys.. but I'm sick of being fat and ugly.  I'll take the matrix anytime.

Can you download me onto the Nostromo?  I'll take being stalked by aliens over a day in my life anytime.

Wow sounds interesting, does this mean i could have bigger boobs for free? change my body anyway i like? Nothing is better than real life peoples, nothing would be real anymore if what your saying happens, it would get very boring very easily, with everything being perfect and all. I am proud of my uniqueness, where  as i am not "perfect", in my eyes why would anyone want to be perfect, howabout being unique?

I'd upload myself into a program that lets me shape-shift.  Then I'd run amok.
