Your impulse might be to say No! I love the real world! There are trees there! But have you ever sat at a dinner table with teens, or venture capital bros? Instead of immersing themselves in the tastes and aromas of the meal or becoming absorbed in conversations, they stare at their phones, swiping endlessly. A reasonably priced device that sucks up even more attention might ratchet up whatever compels people to spend their time with gadgets. It might not happen soon, but tech giants—no dummies—are directing billions of dollars to removing any obstacles to that future. If they succeed, reality as we know it won't stand a chance. And when we use the word presence, we will mean the opposite.
