How virtual reality will make prisoners of us all

"Naydler notes that one of the most spooky VR developments comes courtesy of an experience called a Cave Automatic Virtual Environment, or CAVE for short. It’s an immersive reality named after the allegory of the cave in Plato’s Republic. Only, whereas Plato argued we need to escape from the cave because its “reality” is merely shadows, CAVE invites us to remain perpetually as prisoners. Which most prisoners prefer, as in Plato’s story."
