Chaotic. But I am not experienced at all. :Þ

I would expect it to be more along the lines of chaotic /anarchaic/unrestful. Any virtual reality I have read about has been no where near restful or comfortable or normal. I think, by definition, virtual reality takes you to a place you can’t go normally. We used these same (or similar) terms while experimenting with exotic illegal drugs in the 60’s. These were trips indeed, but they weren’t normal and were choatic as Hell.

@Kid: I think I may have some peyote left over, jusy ask.

I read Tad William’s Otherland series, and whenever I imagine the future of the Internet, I think of that chaotic world. It seems to me that utopia could never exist.

Just like the internet is today, it will be both chaotic and utopian. It’s up to you to decide which path to follow.

Second Life is as close as it gets today and it’s pretty chaotic. I’d expect future attempts to be even more so.
