Schizophrenia World in Second Life

Virtual Hallucinations in Second Life was like going through a haunted house. It was creepy to see and hear the audio and visual hallucinations.  The demonstration provided a glimpse of people with schizophrenia must deal with.  It helped to better understand the creative possibility of Second Life but also the difficulty these people have to go through.  The obtrusiveness of the voices and negatives messages surprised me.  This video would be useful for family members because it help them to better understand their world.  The disease made me think about the complexity of the brain and how it can distort our perception of reality.  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Sedig/32/50/24
