Sutton’s Mythbusting Protest: Wikipedia Myth No. 7 The Artificial Reality Myth

Here on Best Thinking, everyday throughout November I am publishing a newly busted myth, or newly discovered fallacy, which is currently being disseminated by the online encyclopedia known as Wikipedia.
I am highlighting Wikipedia’s unreliability and dreadful quality of information in protest against its deliberate policy of facilitating and refusing to halt engaging in stealth plagiarism of information from the unique work of expert authors.
At the time of writing, Wikipedia’s senior editors refuse to cite Best Thinking as a reliable source, yet Wikipedia regularly plagiarizes the original content on this site to pass-off my unique myth busting discoveries as though they are discoveries made by its own replicators who refer to themselves collectively as ‘Wikipedians’. Wikipedia passively sanctions this self-serving fraudulent behavior in order to conceal its unreliability and pervasive mythmongering. (Click here: for the full story).
Today’s blog reveals that Wikipedia is publishing a universal myth about where and when the term 'artificial reality' first entered the English language

Myth

The Artificial Reality Myth as mongered on Wikipedia 8th November 2013: on it's Virtual Reality page (here   
‘The term "artificial reality", coined by Myron Krueger, has been in use since the 1970s."’

Fact – Characteristically, Wikipedia is at least 150 years out of whack!

'The impressive nature of representation places it above deriving any benefit from such an alliance: for being sustained by visible scenery and living characters, it thence acquires a species of artificial reality, more striking than any known remembrance.'
It occurs again on page 96
