We develop this idea in order to advance the potential of VEs in enhancing humans. Training with VEs has proven in some cases to be more

The VE would be an environment for extending human capabilities, the goal being to increase experiences. This last affirmation could renew the scope of action for AH research: acquiring new needed capabilities from the virtual world that would be usable in both worlds, real and virtual.
