Virtual Humans at the Metaverse. Close to the Edge to the Twin Society

“A human being is a part of the whole that we call the universe, a part limited in time and space.” Albert Einstein.

Last week I had the immense pleasure of presenting these previous reflections around MetaHumans, at DES | Digital Enterprise Show during the #VRAR Tech-Session, and it was really fantastic to see the eyes and perceptions of the attendants. I have got this feeling for the very first time in almost a year. Then I felt alive again.

The body we temporarily inhabit has been described by some philosophers, as a temporary home or an unbearable prison for others. A material restriction, which prevented us from giving way to our imagination to our most impossible delusions, dreams, and fantasies. Free ourselves from the body, inhabit other spaces and teleport ourselves from one world to another with a single click.

Surpassing the creativity of Leonardo Da Vinci, is no longer a matter of fantasy, nor is it the fruit of imagination. #METAVERSE is here to stay and it will change everything …

The great evolution and development of immersive virtual platforms, and their massive acceptance and implementation during the time of the pandemic, has been truly spectacular. Virtual worlds, where we can unfold, duplicate and interact with other beings, and free ourselves from our body and limitations, without physical restrictions and face finite spaces, where the space / time concept is only on our computer clock.

On the other hand, the battle of #robotics and #AI, trying to occupy a space that does not belong to them, have caused this reaction of the #Metahumans, taking a giant step, forgetting the material / real world, and evolving to parallel worlds, where robots, at the moment, do not have their defined space.

A really exciting time and open debate, where all the barriers of ethics collapse, starting a new race, perhaps the most exciting ever lived by us, as humans, in the last decades.

Are you ready for it? I am already “ON”.

Have a nice and safety day.
