Virtually Real Inner Peace
from the oh,-come-on dept
These people have got to be kidding. I remember those silly “meditation” tapes they used to sell in mall bookstores (do they still sell those things?) that promised to bring you inner peace or the ability to lose weight or get over shyness or whatever based on subliminal messages. Now, some researchers are claiming the latest version of such junk: virtual reality inner peace. Hmm, let’s take two ideas that never really lived up to their hype (subliminal self-help and virtual reality) and throw them together. Wasn’t there an Ahh-nold movie about these virtual vacations?
