Maybe Second Life can contribute something to oldfashioned reality -other than a place to hide from it? (My personal view is that normal reality is no more real than the model versions in virtual worlds like SL -they are all simplified simulations).
Certain interesting things are, however, uniquely possible in computer-based simulations. One such may be that it’s (technically) possible to swap Avatars and therefore viewpoints.
Today’s invention is to exploit that possibility to help resolve realworld disputes. Such a mindswap mediation service could even form a high-value export for SL back to gritty, high-resolution reality.
