Aristotle's physics provides a coherent set of physical laws which predict physical events less well than Newton's, but fit human expectations better. Embedded in a virtual reality, they thus provide a system which the user can more quickly learn to control, being more intuitive than Newton's laws and more consistent than ad hoc movement rules. Being simpler and cheaper to implement, they also give smoother behaviour (for given hardware investment) than the usual classical mechanics
