In this day and age it has become apparent that people enjoy having constant communication. They enjoy letting others know what they are doing, who they’re seeing, what they’re eating – in essence, the idea of privacy is non-existent. During the last decade we have seen men and women willingly go on television to disclose personal information, be followed by cameras and have every inch of their lives exposed to millions of viewers. Reality television has alienated the way we protect our privacy and in changed the way we view normal. Reality television has only created problems and television companies should abolish any current reality television being produced so personal privacy can

Kultdokumentargenreen har så sandelig forandret sig gennem tiden. I 1960'erne kendte man reality-tv'et som ”den oberserverende dokumentarisme”, men i dag associeres reality-tv med unge folk, der på national tv dyrker sex, drikker alkohol og overhovedet ikke tager stilling til det virkelige livs facetter og ansvar. Ib Bondebjerg beskriver i ”Reality” nutidens reality-tv som ”at være social pornografi og voyeurisme for Over-Danmark på Under-Danmarks bekostning”1, hvilket programmer som 'Paradise Hotel', 'Familien fra Bryggen', 'For lækker til love' etc. i grov forstand danner grundlag i.

Virtual reality-the very name conjures up fantastic visions of computer technology providing the ultimate out-of-body experience. What is VR? And what can we learn from studying the history of its development and the development of its early and present-day applications? The history of modern VR is the history of the technology that makes it possible-the computer, the head-mounted display, and the data glove. It is also the history of the people and organizations that developed the technology, hardware and software, and applications for that technology. And finally, the history of VR is a history of the social use of VR technology for entertainment, education, military, and

Since I was a child I had a dream to one day rule the skies flying at speeds only a handful of people got to experience. To be as agile as a hawk and have the might of a lion, I strived to be immersed in the "national culture that glamorises soldiers" this was my reality, or was it? With little concept of war and death, had I merely been brainwashed by a society driven by hate in order to become the next gen in "homicidal technology"?
Whilst we think we can determine our own reality, this may prove to be impossible in the modern world. Wherever we go we are surrounded by technology that allows us to be instantly connected to information from around the world. Where

Reality Television: Consequences of Reality T.V on Society
Reality television has become increasingly more popular and appears to be taking over the entertainment business. Psychologist Lawrence Rubin seems to think it all goes back to Aristotle and “The notion of being drawn to drama and tragedy” (Kinon, 2009). The viewer receives a false sense of “real life” and disconnects from their own “real life” by diving into someone else's. The effects that these television shows have on society as a whole can be positive or negative, depending on the message the show depicts. Shows such as “Jersey Shore”, “16 and Pregnant”, and “Dr. 90210” are

Reality Television: Is it Helpful to Our Youth?
Through decades of television, there has been a drastic change in the content shown on air. In past generations, family oriented television shows were expected to be shown around the clock. Shows that contained explicit content were not an option to be shown on television, but today there is not much of a filter that will not be shown on television. There are things shown on late night specials on cartoon channels that are not appropriate for anyone, let alone young children. Television programs have given children a false sense of what is expected in the real world and delays their chance to mature at a normal rate. Television stars

In the past, virtual reality technology was thought of by many as a gimmick, and the hope for it to become a mainstream technology was discarded as products did not work as how the public envisioned. However, the proper technology is now available to make virtual reality just that: a reality. The entertainment industry is on the verge of a monumental paradigm shift that will completely transform the way these entertainment mediums are experienced.

Reality Therapy (William Glasser).
Gladding (2005) maintained that reality therapy was formulated by William Glasser in the early 1960s. It began as a major theoretical approach in 1965 with the publication of Glasser’s book Reality Therapy (1965). This approach emphasizes choices that people can make to change their lives and focuses on two general concepts: the environment necessary for conducting counselling and the procedures leading to change (Wubbolding, 1998, as cited in Gladding, 2005, p.91) it is usually essential to establish a safe environment before change can occur.

Descartes theory of doubt rest on the Latin phrase Cogito Ergo Sum. Translated into English the phrase means “I think, therefore I am”. This theory hinges on what is real and what is false; and mimics the branch of philosophy called Metaphysics. Metaphysics questions the reality of environment as does the method of doubt. Descartes skepticism (method of doubt) is termed methodological, because it presents a process which is used to deduce information to arrive at appropriate conclusions which determines or distinguishes reality from fantasy or a state of confusion.

A research paradigm is a philosophical framework that guides how scientific research should be conducted.
Positivism is underpinned by the belief that reality is independent of us and the goal is the discovery of theories, based on empirical research (observation and experiment).positivism is associated with quantitative methods of analysis.
Interpretivism is underpinned by the belief that social reality is not objective but highly subjective because it is shaped by our perceptions. interpretivism focuses on exploring the complexity of social phenomena with a view to gaining interpretive understanding

Going to the movies is fun. You get your candy and your drink and are taken away into a fictional world for two or three hours, then leave the theater and get back to reality. But is what you're going back to really reality? Plato said no. In the "Allegory of the Cave" (chapter XXV) in the The Republic he proposes that we all live like people in a movie theater, only he uses prisoners in a cave to illustrate the situation. He creates an image of prisoners, chained down in a cave, so all they could see was shadows created by puppets in front of a fire on the cave wall. Their reality was merely the shadows and it is the same for us (as the common man.) According to Plato, our reality is

Skepticism: A Reexamination of Reality
When dealing with skepticism, it's imperative to understand why it is being discussed. Seeking the answer to a question that challenges the concept of reality is hardly an undertaking most people would want to attempt. It is far easier for the general population to blissfuly accept the reality that they experience as concrete. However, If our concept of knowledge is bound to what is accessible within our own minds, experiences that we have like taking psychedelics and vividly dreaming only show that the true concept of possessing knowledge is impossible. After all, dreams regularly fool us into believing we are truly experiencing an event; so how do

I agree with the articles on Perception vs. Reality by Jonathon. I think that the way you see life has a lot to do with what you make of life. For example, when he says, “The way in which your map is constructed will determine many aspects of your life. It will be a major determining factor in your success or failure, your happiness or unhappiness, and your satisfaction or dissatisfaction with your entire life experience.” I think that this is very true and very accurate. I think it’s important to know what you stand for and why you stand for it. But it is also important to keep an open mind, and to make sure that we can see beyond our own ‘maps’.

Plato tells the ‘Allegory of the Cave’ as a conversation between him and his teacher, Socrates, who inspired may of Plato’s philosophical theories.
The Analogy of the cave is one of the most famous passages in Plato’s republic. Imagine prisoners being chained up in a cave, since their childhood. Theses prisoners are chained up and forced to look at the wall in the cave. The only source of light in the cave comes from a fire.

. Since we know that Socrates wrote nothing down everything that we know about him comes in the form of dialogues written by Plato.
Plato thinks that there is an explanaition for questions and he can answer "what is virtue ?" or "what is justice ?". Plato comes up with idea of answering these questions, with the Theory of Forms - the most imporant philosophical concept. Plato used his Theory of Forms to link the mind and reality. He taught that the real world consisted of universal ideas (forms). The world that people actually see is given form by these ideas and is thus less real because it is always changing, but the forms are eternal and unchangeable.

It is the intent of this paper to compare and contrast these questions in relation to the movie The Matrix.

Even the listeners who were not experiencing hardships of Eminem’s kind were able to relate. Writing was his therapy, a coping strategy for the hardships that he faced on a daily basis. Since Eminem rapped about his real life experiences it made him more successful in the music industry and society. It gave his listeners something real to relate to.

Reality is a major difference between the two religions. In Hinduism you must understand that the reality world is just an illusion (maya). Through the cycle of rebirth you will see that it is not real, and by detaching yourself from these desires, you will know it is just an illusion. But you still have god beyond the impermanence of this world. Within Buddhism all reality is impermanent, not even once you achieve nirvana. They believe reality is constantly in motion. Buddhists believe that after the cosmos passes through the cycle of rebirth a new Buddha will appear and lead followers to liberation. This Buddha is known as Maitreya.
