Virtual Praystation

I’ve been putting together this conference paper on the spirituality of technology and focusing on the the spiritual narratives created by technologists to explain and inspire their work. Stuff like the appropriation of apocalyptic imagery to describe cyberspace as the Heavenly City, the linkage of VR to the Buddhist nature, and technopaganism.

Today I come across this web site: The Wild Divine Project Here we have the combination of a video game, biofeedback devices and Buddhist-like meditative practices. You play the game but you can only pass certain point if you can demonstrate (via biofeedback techniques) that you have mastered the body. Achieve a centred calmness and the game responds and you move on.

Sounds like a Sony Praystation to me.
