One of the things I really liked about the Cyberpunk
RPG was their depiction of a fully immersive inferface
for the net. With a neural interface, the user is submerged
in the artificial environment...complete with smell and
touch, as well as sight and sound.
This is a depiction of the character in the real world,
while submerged in the net. Experiencing an artificial existence,
where his abilities are far more broad, while languishing
in what appears to be a drug induced stupor in the "real"
world. Technology has become his natural element.
