"Virtual life" certainly requires some concrete definition. However, for the time being, we will identify it as an element which does modification to our life, because of the presence of machines. But what "Machines" actually are? Again, no definition, and I am just citing examples of some machines:-
- My fan, television, and this laptop are machines.
- So is yahoo messenger, GTalk or IRC ( Internet Relay Chat).
- Big Brother or Big Boss reality TV series. The conception behind these TV series is that participants are put together in a house for few days, and part of their activities are broadcasted. The rules, the behavior of participants on the basis of the fact that they are on broadcast; constitutes a machine, although an abstract one.
- Games, like Second Life.
