1st "Virtual Reality as a Transformative Technology to Develop Empathy" Conference.
By the "empathic Reactive MediaLab Coalition" (eRMLab Coalition).
Monday, June 18 • 12:00pm - 2:00pm
“Optimal XR: A Collective Vision to Hack the Future of Human Flourishing through Empathy” (English)
What is the future of human flourishing and what role does VR play as a Transformative Technology in it? How can VR optimize our mental models and ability for imagination? How can VR show us our better selves? How can VR increase the ego-dissolution typically associated with flow states and the emotion of awe? What is the emergent field of neurocinematics showing us about the effect of shared narratives and stories in the brain? Will “shared stories that reflect our personality patterns” play a major role towards the creation of a meta-intelligence? Will this new altered states economy be the gateway to the redefinition and optimization of the the notion we all have about our own selves and others?
