Virtual Reality Takes You Through The Looking Glass From Quarks to Quasars

Pin it

Journey through the magic of VR to life’s most profound moment. This is not watching it on a television set, but rather you are there and the elements are moving all around you. Seeing a picture of the miracle of life is an amazing learning tool, but it pales in comparison to the learning process that is coming with the virtual reality paradigm shift.


Imagine for a second if you were as small inside that egg, as golf ball would be if it were inside a basketball. Look around, and see the miraculous detail of the inside lining of the egg’s wall. Listen to the sound as the wall is bombarded with intruders, trying at all costs to succeed in their sole mission… to create life. What would it look like to see this from that size and perspective? What is the sound as the wall is hammered until one or more of the sperm get inside and start the process.


And what does that look like exactly when you are inside of the egg and watching the union of life materialize into a zygote?


No matter what words I try to conjure to get you to imagine it, it is not the same thing as if the imagery were as large and powerful as a theme park experience. Virtual reality transcends words. It is a language all to its own. And it can be even more immersive than IMAX.


Virtual reality brings a new level of understanding to all who have the opportunity to learn something through this transformative medium. The absence of a distraction layer, plus the impressive experience of feeling as if one has instantly teleported, is a powerful combination for substantially higher levels of retention in learning and absorption of knowledge.


As Asimov once envisioned, humans will shrink to subatomic size and transport within the human body and elsewhere in our perpetual quest to learn and understand. There is something substantially more evocative about learning something in a massively disparate scale than trying to understand what a microscopic object truly is.

Disney captured the attention of millions when Disneyland featured Monsanto shrinking you down and transporting you into a droplet of water. Virtual reality will be an equally opportune experience for the huge disparity of scale to be reversed in the favor of knowledge and experience.


DNA continues to provide mankind with answers to some of the most severe diseases which threaten our existence. As scientists and students are reduced to a size capable of reviewing the structure details in even greater perspective, there are certain to be a series of light bulb illumination moments that arise out of this new virtual opportunity to understand the key code to life itself.

Symmetrical growth of bacteria

“Every human body consists of about 10 quadrillion cells, but about 100 quadrillion bacterial cells. They are, in short, a big part of us. From the bacteria’s point of view, of course, we are a rather small part of them.”

Bill Bryson, A Short History of Nearly Everything

Journeying to a size that is relatable, allows the student to look at something like a blood disease, and see the cause of the illness with a perception that has really only been accomplished via animation or observation under electron microscope. To go further into the study via virtual reality is certain to create serendipitous moments in both the modeling of the 3D model for the Virtual Reality, as well as viewing that model in VR headgear.

Virtual reality can allow you to not only be face to face with a fly, it can also convert your vision so everything you see looks as it does to the fly, through the fly’s unique eyes.


From the tiniest quarks in an atom to the furthest quasars in the universe, Virtual Reality will take you on journeys that have only been dreamed of. It is truly a trip through the Looking Glass.
