In another study, researchers looked at the illusion of having two bodies at the same time during a movie. They accepted the fact that the movie is not real, more perceptive people is simultaneously aware of being inside the film and outside of it. This conflict between being both here in the seat of the theater and also participating in the movie experience of the actors can cause viewers to experience “dizziness and nausea, an unsettling yet – to a certain degree – pleasurable feeling, which is significantly intensified in media environments such as 3-D films and virtual reality.”
