Virtual Reality - What it is and How it Works Unknown Imagine being able to point into the sky and fly. Or perhaps walk through space and connect molecules together.

This insight is intriguing. It is not that we refrain from Death in dealing with matters economic. What are estate laws, annuities, life insurance policies - but ways to cope with the Great Harvester? But this, admittedly, only scratch the non-pr

The quintessence of the main theme of this lovely novel is: "Only connect!?Only connect the prose and passion?and human love will be seen at its height. Live in fragments no longer."
