researchers first asked the subjects to wear virtual reality helmets, which made them think that the virtual body was their own body. Then let them leave the perspective of virtual body, imitate the soul feeling. The user’s hands and feet are equipped with an action sensor and a vibration element. This allows the user to mistake the virtual body as its actual body. The virtual reality experiment and some experiences are very similar.Researchers at the University of Barcelona,
, recently introduced a virtual reality simulation system that helps people understand how they feel about getting out of their bodies. This may provide some help for terminally ill people.
of the University of Barcelona (Mel Slater) virtual reality helmet team led to 32 patients tried on developing a Oculus VR company. Immersive virtual reality technology allows users to see from the first point of view of a virtual body with their own exactly the same." They wrote in the study. This allows the user to mistake the virtual body as its actual body.
after wearing a helmet, virtual body movements will be exactly the same as the user’s actions. The user’s hands and feet are equipped with an action sensor and a vibration element. If a virtual ball hits the foot of the virtual body, the vibrating element that is worn by the user’s real foot will vibrate.
when the user and the virtual body "synchronization", they will be sent to a virtual living room. They can move their legs and kick the ball from a distance. Then they will leave their bodies".
"the player’s view will leave the virtual body, come to the top of the virtual body, look down at your body. This is like "soul"."
"found that the fear of death in the experimental group than the control group to reduce the number of." "Earlier reports that naturally occurring ‘soul’ experience often make people more believe in this statement. And the results of the experiment also confirms this point."
really had a ‘soul’ experience, or participated in the experiments, both say they fear of death is greatly reduced. Experimental results are very obvious." Slater said. He hoped that the experiment would allow subjects to produce a sense of consciousness from the body. "It can make people feel that we can live on in spirit."
virtual reality experiment and some experiences are very similar. Some people who had had a heart attack reported that they had been looking down from the ceiling during the rescue. Our experimental results show that the virtual "soul" experience may imply that human consciousness can be detached from the body, so the death of the body does not necessarily mean the end of consciousness." The researchers concluded.
