The virtual communities created by online games have provided us with a new medium for social interaction and communication. Avatar Machine is a system which replicates the aesthetics and visuals of third person gaming, allowing the user to view themselves as a virtual character in real space via a head mounted interface.For the first time Avatar Machine is available to purchase, and customers can buy anything from a set of Avatar Arms right through to the technical system that allows you experience ‘Life in Third Person’
This is kind of an ultimate in depersonalization and derealization made art. The way this one works, the “graphics” of the experiance are made to resemble a 90’s era third person game. Staring you. You move through the world, you watch you do it.
I would want to see a version without the whole person - just walking in third person.

I submitted this one. It’s…a problem
This is kind of why my other dissociative problems have been less now that I understand my multiplicity more. This is why I spend hours trying to sort it out. Because when i can understand the feels, I don’t go all floaty, I just go “Oh, Tommy’s upset.” and then deal with that, rather than just feeling out of it and abstract until I get distracted.
Has anyone else noticed that? Had a lot of DP/DR symptoms that lessened as they sorted out their system? I’m curious if this is a usual thing or not.

whenever i check the time, i forget it again within seconds and have to check it again XD;
Time cannot be trusted. I have written a lot about this. Time is really slide-y for me. I check back to see is my time perception is working remotely in accordance with the clock.
