Abstract This paper explores the idea that the universe is a virtual reality created by information processing, and relates this strange idea to the findings of modern physics about the physical world. The virtual reality concept is familiar to us from online worlds, but our world as a virtual reality is usually a subject for science fiction rather than science. Yet logically the world could be an information simulation running on a multi-dimensional space-time screen. Indeed, if the essence of the universe is information, matter, charge, energy and movement could be aspects of information, and the many conservation laws could be a single law of information conservation. If the universe were a virtual reality, its creation at the big bang would no longer be paradoxical, as every virtual system must be booted up. It is suggested that whether the world is an objective reality or a virtual reality is a matter for science to resolve. Introduction Virtual Reality (VR) was just a dream a few short years ago. Now integrating sound, vision and feel it is allowing us to design, repair and be entertained in a way that used to be science fiction. Virtual Reality (VR), system enables one or more users to move and react in a computer-simulated environment. Various types of devices allow users to sense and manipulate virtual objects much as they would real objects. This natural style of interaction gives participants the feeling of being immersed in the simulated world. Virtual worlds are created by mathematical models and computer programs. What is virtual reality? Virtual Reality (VR), also known as 'artificial reality', 'artificial worlds', 'virtual worlds', 'virtualities', is a fully-immersive, absorbing, interactive experience of an alternate reality through the use of a computer structure in which a person perceives a synthetic environment by means of special human-computer interface equipment and interacts with simulated objects in that environment as if they were real Virtual reality is a way for humans to visualize, manipulate and interact with computers and extremely complex data. History Virtual Reality has a significant history that is both interesting and complex. A little over thirty years ago, a young man by the name of Morton Heilig had an idea. He was not a computer scientist, nor was he an engineer. Heilig was a cinematographer who wanted to utilize the other seventy-two percent of the spectator's viewing field. He wanted to create an ultimate full-view experience for the spectator. Unable to obtain any financial support, Heilig was
