The expansion of virtual reality technology along with the increasing complexity and reach of the World Wide Web is driving the development of the Metaverse – a still largely-hypothetical upgrade of the Internet to a single, universal, and immersive virtual world. However, despite enormous technical challenges, to say nothing of the colossal investment involved, the most ardent exponents of the Metaverse maintain that their vision of a virtual world indistinguishable from the real thing will soon become reality. A reality in which the limitations of our three-dimensional, five-sense existence can be left behind, where we can live out our fantasies, and ultimately, transcend our physical form altogether.
But beyond very real concerns about the so-called ‘Internet of Things’ and this mooted Metaverse as a totalitarian tool of technocracy and The Great Reset, what if the possible dangers run much, much deeper? What if the agenda is to cut humanity off from the higher realities which consciousness mediates, which some call spiritual, the loss of which might end our evolution once and for all?
