There is a circular relationship between virtual and real.
Physics demands (assumes) a circular relationship called ‘time.’ This is because man is trying to figure out, ‘what is time?’ (The whole thing is circular, even though, scientists pretend, you are not supposed to be circular). Logic depends on linear time (eliminating circular time), supposedly.
But then technology comes along. Media, in general. Virtual realty. Augmented reality. These prove the circular relationship between virtual and real (used to be called mind and matter). Zero and one is circumference and diameter, literally (and figuratively).
This means there is no such thing, really, as time. (Time, and weather, are relative. They depend on rotation and revolution. Which are circular realities. Absolute and relative. Abstract and concrete). Conservation of the circle. Is the core dynamic in nature. This is string theory at its best.
