The only thing known about the metaverse is that no one knows exactly what it is. The funny thing is that everyone (including me) is talking about it. We all pretend we know what the metaverse is, but, in reality, we have no idea.
However, countless articles have been written on this topic that not even the author of the 7 Laws of the Metaverse knows about, let alone his readers. Many presentations at events are done in the metaverse, where speakers talk about this future technology while speaking automatically, like mechanical monkeys playing cymbals. In reality, everyone repeats what others say in the metaverse hoping to better understand what it is, but, in fact, the more one reads about the subject, the less one knows.
The metaverse is everything and nothing, at the same time, and, above all, nothing.
Conclusion #1.1. “A” or “metaverse”: an incorrect item.
shall we say a metaverse “” Where” the metaverse »? Nobody knows. But if you choose one of these two options, you have the right to hate all the people who chose the other option. According to the latest metaverse communities guidelines, if someone uses the word metaverse with a post you don’t like on social media, you have a duty to start a comment war.
During this time, outside our bubble, people don’t even differentiate between augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), metaverse, and potato peelers. But back to the topic. Incidentally, it is worth remembering that everyone agrees with this the potato peeler is the most widely used of the 4 technologies described above.
Conclusion #1.2. The metaverse has characteristics that even the metaverse ignores
Since no one knows what the metaverse is, we have to say what we think about it when we talk about it, especially when we want to make people dream about the future. Thus, you can declare, that in the metaverse you can meet people from all over the world, anytime and anywhere. You can dream of the future of inclusive education, when young children in school will have inclusive history lessons where they can go and witness medieval battles in virtual reality, so they can see people tearing each other apart and traumatized forever (but, at least, they will never forget what they saw, and this proves that VR has a great capacity for memory). You can talk about flying cars. You can imagine free health care or giant robots with laser eyes that can roam anywhere.
Everything is allowed in this regard. You can talk about the metaverse like a politician talks about what he will do in the next 5 years if elected: say whatever you want with confidence and a smile, knowing that nothing you say will come true.
At the end of the day, remember to tell yourself that the world is getting better thanks to the metaverse.
Conclusion #1.3. Metaverse is everything, everything is metaverse
There is no definition of the “metaverse”, neither its characteristics nor its boundaries. So everything can be defined as metaverse. Forget all those boring names that identify everything exactly: If ” metaverse is the buzzword of the moment, it’s your job to define everything there is about it. Especially if it’s your product. If someone asks you to sell a pen in 2022, you should pretend the pen is a metaverse.
Remember: everything is a sex toy if you’re brave enough to claim it, and everything is a metaverse if you believe in it enough.
To know how to properly talk about the metaverse, you can take inspiration from South Park, especially the episode where the children land on the planet Marklar, where everything and everyone is called Marklar. Replace Marklar with metaverse and you have the perfect talking tech sesame.
