[WEBINAR] The New Normal: Dealing with the Reality of an Unsecure World

Real Reality (RR)

Definition - What does Real Reality (RR) mean?

Real reality (RR) is a term used to refer to the real world, rather than the increasingly engaging and interactive one found online. Real reality is used to distinguish an experience or interaction from virtual reality or any other fictional, fantasy or lifelike experience. Philosophically speaking, what is is and isn't real is a matter of debate, especially when virtual reality and other digital experiences are becoming increasingly hard to distinguish from real-life experiences. The term real reality aims to preserve this distinction.

Techopedia explains Real Reality (RR)

Real reality aims to distinguish typical, real-world experiences, interactions and activities from the virtual or cyber domain. The term is also part of the philosophical debates that foresee a time when human beings will be overwhelmed by and spend most of their time in virtual reality. For example, the evolution and popularity of online social networks could reduce the amount of time people physically spend together, leading to a sort of virtual friendship that, arguably, does not exist in real reality.
