Famous quotes containing the word simulated:

    Simulated disorder postulates perfect discipline; simulated fear postulates courage; simulated weakness postulates strength.
    Sun Tzu (6th–5th century B.C.)

    Not too many years ago, a child’s experience was limited by how far he or she could ride a bicycle or by the physical boundaries that parents set. Today ... the real boundaries of a child’s life are set more by the number of available cable channels and videotapes, by the simulated reality of videogames, by the number of megabytes of memory in the home computer. Now kids can go anywhere, as long as they stay inside the electronic bubble.
    Richard Louv (20th century)
