Using Oculus Rift and climbing this mountain...
I've got to say how incredibly fabulioso this was!
It is absolutely an immersive and real experience.
When I looked over the side of the mountain and down at the water and "realized" how far up I was, I was freakin out.
My feet were grabbing the floor like I was about to fall off the mountain and then I eventually did.
This is the next big thing!
You can literally be anywhere and doing anything with this technology.
The real world is not there.
And now I believe more than ever, that just like we enter the virtual reality body and start to move around and interact in that make-believe world, so too our soul enters our human bodies and we are present in this material existence to experience the worldly wonders all around us.
But like the virtual world, this earthly world is the playground for our earthly bodies are just a temporary vessel for us to face challenges, learn, and grow.
When the time is up, our souls depart our bodies and return to its maker, just like when the virtual reality game is over and we are back here.
G-d is the greatest game-maker of them all, and we are copycats in every sense of the word.
The body is the vessel, and the soul is the essence. ;-)
