virtuality and behavior without nervous systems

Maybe virtual reality technology works because there is less distinction between the real and the virtual than we suspect? We've all been living in virtuality without knowing it? 

Yep, lots of organisms "behave" without having nervous systems, sponges and single cell organisms among them.  Might make an interesting web paper, reviewing what they do, how it is done,  and reflecting on the implications are for thinking about behavior in organisms that do have nervous systems.
