Hi Stacia, 

I liked this part of the virtual definition: 
"a practical failure" 
because without the in-context sentence (which was something like 'the
once elegant temple 
is now in virtual ruin'), it leaves me to consider what a practical
verses an impractical failure 
would be. Is an almost-failure simply a potential- not a potential
failure but simply the potential 
of something next, something else. I think this may work well with the
idea of virtual digital 
space. I wonder your thoughts on this. Do you see virtual spaces as
transitional spaces- do 
they ever 'train' you for the real? or do you prefer them to be
autonomous realities/ experiences? 

I still don't think for me it is the right definition for the fictional
spaces I am working with, in that 
the events did happen in the real and now have gone through the filter
of perception. For me, 
calling these observations and perceptions fiction is almost a disguise.
