To illustrate this truth, I have created a chronology for the advance of baseball over the millennia, as if baseball was the only thing worth thinking about.
1950 Play ball in sandlot
1960 Watch TV baseball
1985 Nintendo baseball
2001 Virtual reality baseball with headset and force feedback
2112 Virtual Reality room (i.e. a holodeck, like in Star Trek)
200 Billion Years AD Play ball in sandlot that perfectly simulates sandlot, or the ultimate computer, God, may be thinking about going to the ball game, and He just happens be in the grandstands, munching a hot dog, and watching you try not to strike out in life.
