Abstract: Today, we speak much about virtual reality, arrange conferences and round-table discussions, deliberate about this issue at the seminars. But in fact, whats new the computer virtual reality has brought to us? At first glance, the answer is obvious: virtual reality itself is something new and unknown. And what if we look deeper? What is fundamentally new something unknown before the people got after the invention of the computer virtual reality if we discard the emergence of new technical devices? We shall try to answer these and similar questions in this study. We shall determine the innovations of virtual reality having appeared in space and time and in the means of transmitting information in the cyberspace. As well as the problem of self-identification of a person getting into virtual reality. We shall find out how the network society differs from the same in the constant reality. Finally, we shall determine the core values of the virtual space.
