Steadfastedly, Elana has refused her children’s attempts to move her out of the beautiful, rural, clear-water-flowing-down-mountain Wyoming, where she has lived all her life. Consequently, as virtual reality and internetspace has become the norm in the past two decades, Elana’s raggedy satellite internet connection has become more of a liability. At work, during her daily standups, she has to lower her avatar’s resolution (optical) so that her colleagues can hear her voice emanate from a few Elana-shaped voxels. After work, when she’s grinding through her MMORPG, she has to lower the NPC AI’s resolution (emotional) just to progress through the randomly generated plotlines.
