Deleuze references[edit]

I've added some inline citations for the Deleuze section, and some fact tags. I haven't encountered the version of the virtual (the first version) explained there in Deleuze, but I've left it in for the time being to give the opportunity for some inline citations to be added before I delete it. I've expanded a little on the relationship to Bergson's philosophy. Citations formatted in MLA author-date system. There was also an argument about virtual = "in principle" that I've removed. It seems to misconstrue the argument on p.106 of Bergsonism, where Deleuze is describing a relationship between life, duration, freedom, and memory.

dempsey[edit]

Moved this section here for now because a) the concept described seems sufficiently different from the rest of the article to warrant a new page, b) the passage seems lifted from a dissertation abstract, c) it is questionable from the perspective of notability, and d) the page for the author is similarly questionable.

==Dempsey's Theory of Virtuality Culture== A [[theory of virtuality culture]] was developed by cultural and media theorist [[J. Camille Dempsey]] in 2014. Her work was a theoretical expansion of [[Walter Ong]]'s [[literacy]] and [[orality]] culture model. It investigates the ubiquitous and multimodal nature of the virtuality cultural phenomenon that is mediated by contemporary technology and not explained by pre-existing cultural conventions. Through examining the theoretical underpinnings of [[orality]] and [[literacy]] culture, the dissertation explores the cultural shift that is just beginning to restructure human consciousness through the ways that society is connecting, exploring and communicating. Further, this dissertation examines the contrasts between [[virtuality culture features]] and those related to traditional literacy and orality types, including the gap between the theory of [[secondary orality]] and [[virtuality culture]]. This dissertation also proposes three ways that contemporary technology creates human presence related to virtuality culture. See [[technology and human presence]]. Finally, this dissertation describes the broad implications for the evolution of virtuality culture in areas such as education, technology, literacy, philosophy, politics, linguistics, ethics, history, the arts and cultural studies. <ref>*[[Dempsey, J.
