To keep it simple one might consider virtual to mean
that a person gets enough information from the virtual
object to be able to experience as real.  That is It
can be felt as real- seen as real and perhaps heard as
real at the same time. Jargon can confuse reason so it
is best to keep it simple, which may or may not be
what artists do.  I prefer simplifying not
complicating. Said with no intent to insult or harm. Ed
