Thanks to Bev, I've got the following to share with you:
"A few years into making the film, I started to recognize that this dichotomy was false, that the virtual world is really part of the real world and they aren't separate things. What ultimately matters to us is what's in our mind, and our relationships that are in our mind. And if you can make meaningful relationships in Second Life, then it's a very fuzzy line, really, between what's real and what's not. They co-exist."
A little deep thought for you on this late Monday night. :)
