For those into the deeper aspects of play in virtual worlds and self enlightenment there is a long but interesting blog post by Gwyneth Llewelyn titled Transcendence through Second Life. I think it could have been titled Transcendence through Online Communities.
There is a lot to consider in the 6 blog pages of text. Some of the basic terms from psychology seem to be missing from her writing but her thinking and the connections she makes in regard to the concepts are written in a more enlightening way than one would get in psych class or book. I think it is well worth the read.
I included it here because while I think it is beyond the scope of this section it is related to the foundational concepts.
