A glimpse through those shimmering
What awaits you through those
shimmering doors (known as farcasters) as a registered user? I
will take you on a brief tour to give you an idea.

Eve (Cyberhouse1, actually) is in the Garden of Eden.
First stop, the gorgeous Garden
of Eden. This area features a labyrinth of separate gardens, each
with its own theme. There is the flower garden, the Zen-style
tranquillity garden, the breezy poplar grove, and the Koi pond,
featuring a cat that meows.

As you can see from the previous
figure, the interior textures of the old
English style cottages
will take your breath away!
Donít forget to explore
the Hall of Sadness for a more somber mood, and the Gothic area,
where you will find a multi-level castle.

One of the most magical spaces
is Skyworld, which you can reach through the Airdoor.
Catwalks take you over dizzying heights between the mysterious
obelisk monolith and a maze in the sky.

If you are a fan of Frank
Herbertís Dune, you will like the Desert area and
the Ziggurat. Haunting music and distant flying creatures give
Skyworld a surreal feel.

Our last stop is Asteroid
1541, a zone ready for partying. There is a room here with a mirror
so you can powder your nose or straighten your avatar before going
back into the soiree with the digerati. A strange feature of this
mirror is that you can only see yourself, and no one elseís

The Rave Room in Asteroid
1541 has the loudest decor Iíve ever seen in the new cyberspace!
Does that clash with your outfit, Cyberhouse1?

Well, itís all about
chat, and maybe romance too? I caught this couple in Worlds Chat
and thought for a moment: true virtual love! But no, it was only
an illusion! I just caught the avatars at a strange angle. But

True love in Worlds Chat?
No, only an illusion.
