BG (Leader of 'Yes, limited to certain people') says The idea of "upgraded reality" is a profound change in the way a human being interacts with his environment and the world. The physical and the sociocultural worlds that have always been conceived as our common reference, will be customized by each person so that group of people will adhere to almost non-overlapping perceptions. The only limit will be set by the Pauli exclusion principle. (27/08/2017 10h14)
BG (Leader of 'Yes, limited to certain people') says In this model, the main concern of major companies would be to propose "worlds" in other terms, cultures, perceptions, interactions that fit well to the needs, the tastes, and even the libido of their customers. As in the question of the effects of hypersleep on our societies upgraded reality will extend the limits of our planet for an always increasing population. These parallel realities could help people finding an acceptable place and destiny and reduce conflicts though new world political instances (a kind of World Union of Upgraded Realities) that would allocate physical resources and manage possible conflicts (27/08/2017 10h30)

BG (Leader of 'Yes, limited to certain people') says One collateral outcome of upgraded reality will be found in psychology and psychiatry. A criteria of mental illness is a disturbance of reality perception and one goal of mental health care is to bring the patient in a better relationship with reality, and his environment. With new technologies, reality could be modified sufficiently to meet the patients' needs, like an extreme extension of what is made 'nidotherapy'. Psychiatric classifications, psychotherapies would be profoundly modified because one way to provide wellbeing could be the modification of reality! New kind of psychotherapist or 'reality builders' should be trained. (27/08/2017 13h50)
