Ivan Sutherland, while conducting his initial research in immersive technologies, Sutherland wrote The Ultimate Display in 1965 in which he made the first advance toward marrying the computer to the design, construction, navigation and habitation of virtual worlds. Sutherland predicted that advances in computer science would eventually make it possible to engineer virtual experiences that were convincing to the senses. Sutherland believed in the ineffable potential of computers to transform the abstract nature of mathematical constructions into habitable, expressive worlds in the spirit of Lewis Carrol's Alice in Wonderland.
