my prediction is that Augmented Passivity will be the breakout app for the masses

where the user doesn't interact - they observe. An example of this is here: https://www.aucklandmuseum.com/visit/whats-on/the-antarctica-vr-experience

over the next 5 years or so Augmented Passivity will grow to include being able to watch a film from a character's pov. Able to view a music concert from the performer's pov, etc

Augmented Passivity will then grow into being 'present' at a live event. For example, seeing a sporting event from the player/contestant's pov in real-time

I highly doubt Linden Lab would be that desperate to keep Sansar alive, selling SL off. If they sold SL to someone I'd be furious at how stupid they are. Sansar is dead weight, and they need to pull the plug and focus on SL, the one thing that has, is, and will continue to keep them as a company afloat. I've said it before, and I'll continue to say it:

Sansar has been a failure. Linden Lab needs to pull the plug and move on, and quit trying to keep this pipe dream of a successful VR platform alive when others have taken that spot already. Even with VR, SL will be alive for long enough for Linden Lab to make a second go at it down the line. But now it's best for them to focus on what is best for the company and its' customers.
