It’s late at night, and I’m deep down. Two questions are bothering me. I don’t know their answers. And in my case, they’re related.
(1) Why is it when a difficult situation arises in First Life, people leave Second Life? We’re talking a biggie here, like a health crisis, death of a loved one, dissolution of a longterm relationship, loss of a job.
(2) Why is it when we only know someone in the virtual form, we so rarely scratch the surface to really get to know that person–what gets them up in the morning, how they spend their time, and oh so very especially: what troubles them and bothers their sleep? I’m not talking about barging into the avie’s First Life–just really getting to know them as they are.
I’m so tired. But I had to get the questions out. If you ask them, answers come. Maybe even from you. Does anyone know?
