What touches the heart and mind within our shared experiences in virtual worlds? How does collaboration in virtual worlds inspire us to greatness? Join us, the Harmony Society, as we present highlights from research colleagues across universities in transcendentalism.

On Virtual Harmony, the Simone de Beauvoir salon recreated in a French village provides a mind space for exploring the innate goodness of humanity, the aesthetics of place, and the need for educational innovation. Nearby, the Hall of Virtues bridges with the Arthurian Legends to explore how to strengthen the core virtues and inspire creativity within 3D environments.

Games, simulations, virtual world artistry, research, education, and philosophy come together to create an experience that blends transcendentalism with transdisciplinarity on Virtual Harmony.
