a=a (Virtual Reality)

Virtual reality will eventually advance to the point that it will become indistinguishable from reality.
Therefore, if there is no telling them apart, they become equal, a=a.

What if your life is an advanced video game? Maybe the player was tied of doing things while knowing s/he was playing a game. Maybe they wanted the thrill from tricking themselves into thinking that the game is a real life.

If you think about the evolution of video games, its not hard to envision there will be advanced games that would allow the player to completely immerse themselves in the game forgetting that its a game. All for entertainment's sake. People will eventually get bored with games that give them only pleasures, they will want the joys and pains of a full life. Maybe the game lasts a day but feels like a lifetime.
Who knows? Who cares?
