Philosophers across the ages have debated what constitutes reality. While today’s technological advances don’t completely reshape such arguments, they are bringing to life a wholly different kind of encounter, one in which humans can experience bygone eras, meet people who no longer exist, or travel to faraway places. It should come as no surprise that many colleges and universities are experimenting with XR, or cross reality, which combines digital and biological experiences.
