But the real world would be so  S....L......O.......W  compared with VR life.

Why spend a year trying to build something in the real world when a
comparable event could be done in a few seconds (real time) in VR and
similar satisfaction obtained?

Remember VR life will be on a recursive improvement route micro second
by micro second. You won't go back to real life. It would be like
visiting statues.
