p.23   Reminds us that the word 'virtual' (from the Latin virtus meaning strength or power but also virtue) is used by philosophers to signify something with "potential rather than actual existence." Points out that "the virtual should not be compared with the real but with the actual, for virtuality and actuality are merely two different ways of being."   Added by: Mark Grimshaw-Aagaard
