I don't remember now if it was Hal Foster who wrote a book when he
compared the cyberspace and the feelings experimented when people were
navigating the early caves with gloves and helmets with the feelings
and impressions experimented by the Christian mystics in the Middle
He (I am not sure if it was Foster but it don't really matters) read
the books written or dictated by Teresa of Avila and John of the
Cross, maybe the two best writers from that time. And they were
describing their religious extas and their visions and their
exultation when they left the physical body in terms very similar to
the terms people using virtual prothesis and navigating a 3d landscape
And the same I can relate to speaking about death and mourning and
love. I fell in love with another avatar and we carried on a
"disembodied" relationship during a time, maybe a year. At the end we
started to call each other by phone, he lived in Miami I lived in
After a while the whole thing ebbed out because now it was a "normal"
relationship and it was distance and we were so different and so on...
The thing making the relationship was the disembodying...

"When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth
with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been and there you
will always long to return.
— Leonardo da Vinci
