Mark Zuckerberg has spawned the Metaverse – a virtual world for humanity to populate, exist, and interact – believing that we will all want to eventually embrace the digital world much more than our own. Considering that humans have done such a thorough job of making the real world an unbearable shitstorm, it makes some sense that they would want to temporarily retreat elsewhere. But the Metaverse aims to be the preferred reality, not just temporary. Good to know the architect helming our all-virtual future is Zuckerberg – the man best known for creating a website that excels at turning your aunt into a grammar-challenged Nazi.
This is the dystopian future that Sci-Fi films from the eighties and nineties tried to warn us about. The mere concept of the Metaverse should be covered in cement, locked in a nondescript box, and hauled off to a secret government warehouse in the middle of nowhere guarded by TOP MEN.
