I find the metaverse thing pretty fascinating - how far will people go into fantasy life & at what cost (socially and otherwise).

Mi55ey90 gives a very good description of the practical aspect.

My idea from the beginning is that when many people will be living in a dream world (and supposedly needing nothing material or physical), the "real" people runing the show will just use them in whichever way they want & many people will NOT be able to go back to "real" life after that.

In the mean time, who will be out there "working" IRL? Like those who produce food? And how many jobs will the metaverse kill if people no longer need anything real? (I'm exagerating a bit, of course).

Maybe it will turn out that societey will be divided into classes : "controllers" (those who run the metaverse), "dreamers" (those who live it) and "producers" (slaves in poor/underdeveloped countries?) or some such arrangement. And I wonder what the economy will be like, all virtual money I suppose. (But it's already the case, just a game for stock exchange.)

Sounds a bit like "Aside from that, what's new?".

It occurs to me the metaverse is more of a Neptune thing than a Uranus thing. It's an illusion. If I'm right, people are likely to wake up, disillusioned.

Yes

Uranus and Neptune collude to negate Saturn.

There is a matrix of alternative reality being created that is fundamentally disconnected from Earth and Water.

@don I don't think the world works that way but we'll see.

With Saturn moving thru Aquarius and then Pisces  - and Pluto doing the same over a longer time frame - we will see the shadow side of the spiritual being uncovered.

@don Not sure about Aquarius but Pisces, yes.  Not sure if I will be alive to see if but I already know all these "religious" peeps on tv are decepticons.

ALL of them.

Not talking about that type of spirituality.

There is a link between the transcendent ( Neptune) and the mundane ( Mercury) that when properly functioning provides individuality.

When that link does not function we are vulnerable to alternative, inauthentic sources of identity. Words, images, artificial intelligence - the Metaverse  - all rush to fill the void of Water and Earth not being inwardly connected and rightly motivating us.

@elsa  and by influencer you mean propagandist, right?  Who gives them their talking points?  An agent or a studio exec in this case, perhaps?  I'm always curious who it is that puts the narratives out to be disseminated to the masses, telling us what to think.  Often times you can see concerted, coordinated effort to push an agenda.  In this way it's easy to see that a concept is not organically being demanded by consumers, but rather being pushed by TPTB. This is how I view the metaverse.  I don't think anyone is clamoring for it, but rather it's being forced upon us.

@giovanni Yes, that's what I mean.

But I personally know people who are interested in the metaverse... unless the people I know they are bots who are also propagandists! Smile
