In a 24-hour experiment, a participant was asked to perform certain specific tasks in Virtual Reality in order to better understand it’s effects on humans. Dr. Unc was monitoring the participant through the night, but had fallen asleep. When the doctor awoke, he found that the subject had also fallen asleep.
Dr. Unc tried to wake the subject but subject was in a comatose state and no contact could be made with him. When Dr. Unc tried to remove the headset, the man began screaming and thrashing about violently, so he re-attached the headset and the subject immediately went back into a calm, submissive state. The study suggests that our current waking reality is worse than the worst metaverse nightmare experience, as the subject seems to prefer the VR nightmare metaverse to “real life”.
A monitor that was attached to the headset showed what the subject was seeing in the VR headset. The images were so horrifying that Dr. Unc quickly disconnected everything.
Due to the extreme graphical nature or the imagery, the video will never be shown to the public.
