Is the meta universe one universe or multiple universes?
In fact, the meta universe is not a new concept. Just like artificial intelligence, neither of them appeared for the first time in recent years. In the summer of 1956, the term "artificial intelligence" first appeared in the United States. At that time, people first decided to call machines that think like humans "artificial intelligence". The word "meta universe" first appeared in a science fiction novel "Snow Crash" in the 1990s, which describes that people spend a lot of time living in a virtual environment, and the meta universe is the successor of the virtual reality of the Internet.
The emergence of a new function is accompanied by the birth of a new thing. If we think about it carefully, in fact, new things have never been produced, but only new functions. So what are the new functions provided by the meta universe? Has the meta universe really recreated a virtual universe outside the existing physical universe?
The answer is: the meta universe is really possible to recreate a huge virtual reality world. All people in the real world have a network separation in the meta universe. In the future, people will have multiple identities, physical identities in the physical world and digital identities in the virtual world.
meta stands for transcendence and verse stands for the universe. The combination of the two can be understood as creating a hybrid virtual space parallel to the real world to carry all activities such as user work, social networking, games, entertainment and even commodity trading. Due to its high immersion and complete synchronization, it gradually blends with the real world, extends and expands with each other, Finally, we will achieve a meta universe beyond virtual and reality, and broaden the infinite living space for human society.
Generally speaking, the meta universe is a virtual world based on the Internet, which connects with and exists in parallel with the real world. It is a virtual space that can map the real world and is independent of the real world. It is not a single closed universe, but a constantly colliding and expanding digital universe composed of countless virtual worlds and digital contents.
In these virtual spaces, we can make an appointment for friends to drink coffee, communicate with teachers, and get together with relatives.
