Many scholars and audiences look at new technology as being “new”, but what most overlook are the roots of the project, where it originated. Today people look at something as new and advanced as virtual realities and think about how innovative it is. What this essay is going to prove is that Virtual Realities actually maintain the same goal, function, and backbone as images used in the early twentieth century. The images I will compare are from present day visual pedagogy that is animated and early visual pedagogy from a self help book written by Bess M. Mensendieck. Though they will look dramatically different at first glance, the images actually have many similarities and even more importantly are used the same way.
