Yesterday I laid to rest 2 digital manifestations of my psyche that were born, lived and died in an artificial reality.
Direct cost to live those lives: $14.99 a month.
Indirect cost of time lost in my real life: immeasurable.
Saluun and Sylamoon would have been 5 years old at the end of the month. There was simply no way for all three of us to live together any longer. We had different ideas about how we wanted the rest of our lives to play out, so we agreed to go our separate ways. I’m still here, they are not.
