If, at some future time, 'virtual life' becomes sentient - is this life 'real' and would it be as valid as ours?
Virtuality is here already. As computers and modelling system become ever more complex, at some point in the future the virtual life could become sentient.
This is not so difficult to imagine as computing power continues to improve and the virtual environments can evolve much, much quicker than biological life, maybe many thousands or millions of time quicker, virtual life could evolve.
Lets assume that this may happen, then the question is valid - so what is the answer?
