This note addresses the confounding of the term 'presence' with several different  distinct aspects of experience. Distinctions should be made between immersion, presence, involvement, emotional response, degree of interest. An analogy with colour science is pursued, specifically the difference between wavelength distribution and perception of colour - where the former is like 'immersion' the latter is like 'presence' (a human response). On top of this colours may be experienced as interesting, emotion-producing and so on. Just as the emotional experience engendered by a colour is not the same as the perception of the colour, which is not a simple function of the wavelength distribution, so involvement, interest or emotional response in a virtual reality is not the same as presence, which is not the same as immersion.

pp.1-2   An objective description of the physics of sensory stimuli in a virtual environment might allow for them to be described as more or less immersive depending on the preservation of "fidelity in relation to their equivalent real-world sensory modalities [while] presence is a human reaction to immersion."   Added by: sirfragalot
Keywords:   Immersion Presence
p.2   "Presence is about form, the extent to which the unification of simulated sensory data and perceptual processing produces a coherent 'place' that you are 'in' and in which there may be the potential for you to act."   Added by: sirfragalot
Keywords:   Presence Sensation perception Space
p.4   "Presence arises from an appropriate conjunction of the human perceptual and motor system and immersion. Presence is a response. Separate from presence are aspects of an experience such as involvement, interest and emotion. These are to do with the content of the experience. Presence is the form."   Added by: sirfragalot
