Surresolution is a form of entertainment where the brain is directly stimulated to create as real an experience as possible. Thanks to non-invasive, non-cybernetic means, a person sits in a Surresolution Appliance or merely puts a couple of Sure-Stubs in their ears, and can suddenly while away the time in a virtual world. Most people wear a blind over their eyes so that the ambient light of the real world doesn’t interfere with the virtual one. People using Surresolution often do so in private, in locked rooms, and would otherwise be seen reclined in a chair seeming to mutter to themselves, when they are, in fact, talking to someone else. The Surresolution system dampens the motor functions of the person so that they do not actively move too much or talk too loudly while using the device.
With Surresolution, in conjunction with other modern amenities, a person can interact on the local Star Nets or local networks, run and manage businesses, even produce products thanks to robotic automations that do the real physical labor for them.
One of the great phenomenons of the 28th Century is how many worlds, most notably Earth and the Solar System, have the vast majority of their populations living their entire lives on Surresolution. Thanks to modern medical technological advancements, a person can live their entire life in a Surresolution pod, never once breathing fresh air, never once seeing real sunlight, never once eating food cooked by someone.
