We should not judge people by their peak of excellence; but by the distance they have traveled from the point where they started.

A virtual world...

Experiences of different types are important to appreciate the value of things that one gets in ones life. What is the difference between an intelligent man and a wise man?

Is maturity a symbol of a wise man? Does a person become mature, only because he has lots of experiences? Is that the reason some old people who have gathered lots of experiences of varied type considered wise and their opinion is sought after in deciding important things?

Can experiences be created virtually? Can a person be made to understand the things that are beyond ones imagination through virtual reality? What role do films play? What role does photo essays by photo journalists play? What role do museums play in displaying history and creating context of the past?

Could a virtual world be created where experiences of different sort be recreated? Imagination is the key. People spend their life times without witnessing beauty and sufferings of the many parts of the world, which might teach them important lessons. Can these people be made to undergo these experiences which they will never go in their life time? Would they at all be interested in such an activity, which might be curious to go through but not very much comforting?

There are many such questions, which one might ponder upon, when faced with different contexts, different cultures, and different situations.
