FUTURE INTERSECTION OF
SPIRITUALITY AND TECHNOLOGY
On October 26th, 2016, I organized a special talk which took place at NYU ITP about Spirituality and Virtual Technologies. A meditation master from South Korea, VR philosopher, and clinical psychologist attended the talk. At this event, they discussed the future of meditation and applicable technologies.
Specifically, they explored how to both simulate the meditation master’s special abilities with current technology, and also help mental health therapists better understand and
empathize with their clients.
We also explored what things could be like in 2046 and the three experts shared their
individual insights of the advancement of technology and our relationship with them. For me and many of my peers it was the first time we could consider the possibilities surrounding meditation and virtual reality, so it was a very valuable experience.
