Today, an estimated 30 million people worldwide spend 30 hours a week on Virtual Reality. It is easy to understand the attraction; it is a world that promises you everything. You can be anyone, do anything; have friends, families, clans, even develop romantic relationships. It promises you happiness and fulfilment without the inconveniences of a real life. It says life is a perpetual picnic. In real life, the pursuit of happiness is often characterised by tumbles and turns, and many might say that the satisfaction that comes from attaining something is due to working hard for it. If that is so, then, is a happy and convenient virtual life less meaningful, less valid?
