It’s not a virtual world, like @Minecraft and @Roblox.
A moment in time.
In artificial intelligence, there's a term called "the singularity".
It's a moment in time when AI becomes smarter than humans.
The moment when artificial intelligence > human intelligence. (for images)
This is not an overnight change. Or an invention by some steve-jobs type.
It's a gradual change that's been happening for 20 years!
Work --> from factories to laptops. boardrooms to zooms.
Friends --> from neighbors to followers. Where do you find like-minded people? Twitter, Reddit, or Discord.
Games --> more kids play @FortniteGame than basketball & football combined.
Identity --> filters are the new makeup.
Stories are your personal billboard to broadcast who you are.
What you look like in real life VS what you look like on Instagram, the latter matters more.
@BoredApeYC are the new Rolex.
Fortnite skins are the new skinny jeans.
If everyone hangs out online all the time, then your flexes need to be digital.
Our attention has been sucked from physical to digital.
And where attention goes, energy flows.
If 50% of our attention is on our digital screen, then 50% of our energy will go to our digital life.
Soon, some companies will make smart glasses that sit in front of our eyes all day.
We will go from 50% attention on screens to ~90%+
That's the moment in time when the metaverse starts.Because at that moment, our virtual life will become more important than our real life.
Is this a good or a bad thing?
All we know: It will be a very different thing.
The metaverse concept is mind-blowing, even got Facebook to change its name to Meta.
And what’s your idea about the metaverse?
