Biohack: Virtual Awakening as Primitive FIVR

Post by Yuli Ban »

There's a peculiar phenomenon that occurs when people accidentally go to sleep while still wearing VR headsets. When they wake up, their minds do not fully register that they are still in a virtual environment, leading them to believe that everything around them is real!

For a brief moment, virtual reality becomes your reality. But for right now, the only way to achieve this effect is to go to sleep and wake up in a virtual world. It's an interesting little shortcut.

My favorite comment:

My first one was in Elite: Dangerous on the Oculus DK2. I played for about 5 hours and got really tired, decided to shut all systems off except life support and fell asleep. I woke up a while later to find my ship had spun around to face the nearest star, and I awoke to a massive sunrise. I was totally absorbed for a little bit, not sure if it was a lucid dream or something, before I looked down and saw my lifeless in-game body.
For exploration games, I could see it being very peacefull to sleep/wake in some environments. I may try it with Minecraft soon.
And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future

Not going to lie my mind thought of going to sleep with VR playing NSFW videos.

I don't want to mess around with trying to trick myself into feeling like I am in FIVR as I feel like it will ruin the enjoyment I get from anticipating the real thing.

In truth I want to spend a good thousand years or so in FIVR when all the need tech has popped out due to super human AGI.
I want to relive my life with different decisions and built in advantages/disadvantages as well as many crazy scenario's I have created. Whist not as crazy there are many tv, movie and video game universes I want to try living in.

The reason why I seem obsessed with AI especially given my lack of understanding in the area is it's a stepping stone to all the enjoyment I will get out of FIVR.

I suspect that if one were to make these headsets more waterproof and fully seal them around the eyes while placing the user in a sensory deprivation tank, the experience could be amplified greatly. I imagine that a similar procedure to train and indoctrinate vat-grown people or beings spawned from ectogenesis without said beings having to prematurely leave the safety of the vat or biobag in order to mature or strengthen themselves mentally.
