Avatarism is an inquiry into the nature of character itself, an open source game/philosophy of conscious character creation and a worldwide humanistic movement. Created by Alexander Polinsky actor/artist/musician and the Reverend of Full Circle Venice. Avatarism is not a new idea, we have been embodying archetypes and animals and gods and goddessess for millennia. Among the ideas expressed in Avatarism are collecting skills, creating your character in the real world and building confidence through focused play. The three main tenants in Avatarism are Embody, Uplevel and Uphold. More info Avatarism.net

An icon which represents a user in a virtual reality/Internet setting, currently attempted with varying success. The term is adopted from Neal Stephenson; another word used for the same concept is Rudy Rucker's term "tuxedo."
First used from an Internet perspective in 1992 in SNOW CRASH, by Neal Stephenson, in one of those self-fulfilling SF prophecies. Stephenson got the name from the Hindu concept of avatars, which are the personification of various deities or entities.
