When Realities Differ

Once Virtual Reality becomes part of our shared reality, how will it change our perception of what is real? I mean, once a meeting moves to a shared virtual space, everybody can tweak the experience to what they want. I could choose to have strong language filtered out. I could choose to appear in different form, different mood than I really am. I could choose the people around me to appear happy.

Even now, what we experience differs. Primed with one thought or another, we might remember completely different parts of a  conversation. But still it seems that all possible experiences are presented to everyone equally. Not so in AR. I could have chosen to only be presented with half of it, and have some virtual ones added that nobody else can have. How different will it be?
