R/L, RL, Real Life
Non-virtual existence (pron. rill). This term was originally coined back before the Earth nanodisaster apparently to represent the then-valid dichotomy between 'imaginary' experiences drawn from electronic entertainment media and those experienced in the flesh, without electronic interpretation.
This term has since morphed into the more common definition of a personal experience of reality (as compared to another's personal experience). Contrast with VR.(Anglic, from Old Earth English "real life")
