How the Metaverse Will Change What It Means to be Human
My latest article:
The metaverse will enable you to be who you want, regardless of physical restraints or considerations. It will allow individuals to explore their identity in ways never possible before. The more we step into the metaverse, and the more the physical and the digital worlds converge, the more fun the world will become.
The immersive internet will enable you to go wild and change who you are. You can be a purple flying centaur dressed as barbie, a blue man with a burning head, or Bowser from Mario Kart; you are only bound by your creativity. We can expect humans to discover new identities in novel ways, changing what it means to be human.
