Re: [-empyre-] Re: space and immersion

> here goes

every time i look at a computor screen i am some how reminded of the whole 
tragic history of representation,from the camera obscura to the computor 

the world defined in a rectangle box, the painters skill rested on how 
successfully they could create an illusion of a third dimensional space.are we 
still trying to do the same thing instead using electrons.

when we play computor games the immmersion come from the way our ego kicks in 
and the way these game cross directly to the fight or flight core of our being.
i haven't looked at all the works yet ,but what i have seen has been incredibly 
beutiful will give a more considered response when i have worked out what it is 
that really intrigueing about this world of flying electrons.

i must admit a fear of immersion, what if one became stuck in toon me 
it has a science fiction quality like when they immerse the astronaut in liquid 
before going into hyper drive, perhaps we will need similar biological 
alteration for the toal immersive
