In the Chair

  “I really don’t care if it is just an elaborate computer simulation. As long as I’m the one they pull out of the chair at the end of the game!” 

The Category is Virtual Reality,

And this is a little about the “Simulation” Hypothesis.


…”the organization, identification and interpretation of sensory information in order to represent and understand the environment.”


…”An exteroceptive sense is a faculty by which outside stimuli are perceived.”

…”a physiological method of perception.”

…”A system that consists of a group of sensory cell types that responds to a specific physical phenomenon, and that corresponds to a particular group of regions within the brain where the signals are received and interpreted.”


Medical Definition: …”a device that responds to a physical stimulus, (as heat, light, sound, pressure, magnetism, or a particular motion) and transmits a resulting impulse.”

…”The primary issues are how objects are remembered in the brain so that humans can recognize and manipulate them as well as how the information from different sense organs is integrated to create a consistent representation of the “world in the head.” Prof. Dr. Bülthoff


It’s no surprise to hear that when talking about the senses, “sight” and “hearing” are the ones most people have a fear of losing. It’s easy to see why when you consider how much information these two senses provide us about our environment.

Often the “loss of touch or “feeling” will typically be associated with an injury to a specific area, or the loss of a limb. But, if you clarify  the proper context as a “sense”of  feeling,  then a whole new answer arises.
