We imagined that the future development of technology has the potential in helping to solve pandemic situations⚠️️ , similar to the one we are facing currently; by separating our minds🧠️ away from our physical body🧘‍♂️ (especially when it is defunctioned︎). This future possibility challenges our way of living and our understandings of the relationship between body, consciousness, and identity︎. 

“Self depends on consciousness, not on substance ... personal identity consists: not in the identity of substance, but, as I have said, in the identity of consciousness” ---- John Locke

Our narrative💬️ was developed from this concept. We hope the viewers could enjoy︎ the visuals while think about how will you choose between your physical body🧘‍♂️ and entering a virtual space︎ with your conscious mind🧠️?
