But to the topic, I do find this interesting, but I do agree this list doesn't do much for me, seeing as it's just saying "This stuff doesn't make much sense to us right now, so it must be virtual!".
Plus there is a sense in that, while I agree with SexMachine about their being a certain yearning to know the deeper questions that dive into ontology and epistemology, I'm not really sure what consequences that would result from adopting this worldview. this is really my issue with any kind of dualism (obviously this isn't traditional dualism but the Descartes reference kind of puts it in that category for me) as removing the 'mind' from the body doesn't influence me much. However, I'm also someone who adopts a Strawsonian view of free will, as in it's not important for moral responsibility.
I do find this interesting, and while I'm no expert I do have a degree that's partially in Philosophy, so I can try to add any input I can.
