In this episode, we discuss:
How can we make interactions with VR meaningful
VR as a support for contemplative practice
The parallel between VR and Hinduism as an understanding of the world as dharma
Using VR to define reality – Who are we with all these possibilities?  What would we like to experience? Wouldn’t we prefer to have surprises in life?
Therapy facilitated by VR to expand healing possibilities
The potential for both positive and negative effects of VR and how we will have to make personal and existential choices about how to use this technology

Joakim Vindenes is a PhD Candidate at the University of Bergen, Norway,
where he is researching VR technologies. At his spare time, he runs
Matrise — a blog focused on the intersections of VR, Consciousness,
Science & Philosophy. Matrise has lately increased in popularity and
discusses VR technology in relation to topics such as psychedelics,
Hinduism, Existentialism, Meditation and Non-dual states.
