Words Made Flesh
Information in Formation
(Virtual Reality, Humanity and the Cosmos)
by Ramsey Dukes
This was the book that launched the virtual reality debate before most people had even heard of virtual reality. Films like The Matrix explore the idea that the world we live in we might be a virtual information universe - an idea first proposed and studied in depth when Words Made Flesh was published in 1986. But it went much further because it explored the implications: how virtual reality is subtly transforming our ideas about society, science, religion and magic.
The book has now been re-published with added material to bring it right up to date. Surprising, imaginative, provocative and funny; this is essential reading for cyber-adepts, or anyone looking for a radically different worldview.
