Summary

The author started to think seriously about the ideas of augmented perception and personalized views of reality after reading a number of Internet messages containing proposals to introduce language standards for online communications. In this essay, the author suggests that active information-filtering technologies may help us approach this goal for both textual and multimedia information. He also pursues this concept further, discussing the introduction of augmented perception and Enhanced Reality (ER), and shares some observations and predictions of the transformations in people's perception of the world and themselves in the course of the technological progress.
