Toward a Unified Metaphysical Understanding: Reformulation of the Virtual Reality Hypothesis    
 Reformulation of the Virtual Reality Hypothesis
2013-11-24, by John Ringland

Here is a bottom up reformulation of the philosophical foundations of the virtual reality hypothesis, i.e. the idea that we could be living in a virtual reality.

I have noticed over the years that there are many subtle confusions that arise when people try to approach this subject, myself included. Even for those who are cautious and sincere in their approach, there are unexpected pitfalls that can cause misunderstandings.

This reformulation attempts to elucidate and minimise the impact of those pitfalls in order to create a coherent foundation from which to approach the topic.

It is still a work in progress and any feedback or constructive criticism would be much appreciated
