In what ways will we, in a realistic virtual earth, be able to talk with, and even learn from, the avatar bot teachers from realistic video and film we've added and converted into realistic 3D interactive virtual avatars in something like a build-able realistic OpenSimulator/SL, but in a realistic virtual earth, conceptually like Google Streetview/Maps/Earth/Expeditions with time slider - and eventually in all 8k languages?
Will I, for example, be able to talk with former Stanford University comparative literature (and philosophy) professor Richard Rorty, interactively - and perhaps in new ways he never thought of even?
Or if I upload open Steeleye Span video (or Grateful Dead) videos, will I be able to play my Scottish Smallpipes (or keyboard) with them between 1970 and 1979 and also ask these avatar bot musicians to play with me for learning reasons (more slowly, or just one avatar bot playing, or work on singing in a particular way)?
Adding a video of "Hair: the Tribal Love Rock Musical," - and converting this into a 3D virtual world (and then into an augmented reality light show around oneself at home ... with hypothetical MIT Media Lab light projection bulbs with cameras) for life size avatars in our rooms - could I or you or anyone act and sing with them, also breaking it down for learning purposes and avatar bot by avatar bot - all coding for teaching and learning?
And in what ways could the individual avatar bot actors come alive and begin to teach us the parts empathically the way we'd like to be taught, as well as benefit instructionally from?
(How best could one develop this too to facilitate distributing an universal basic income - since such far-reaching information technologies may eventually lessen the total amount of work worldwide?)
