The future has come : METAVERSE

On 29th of october 2021 mark zuckerberg made a stunning announcement that facebook will now be called META. Almost immediately after Mr Satya nadella presented microsoft's version of the metaverse. Nike has already registered its assets on a metaverse and H&M has already opened a store in the metaverse.

All of this reinforced the fact that metaverse is not just a fancy sci-fi looking concept but literally the next version of the internet itself but very few of us know what Metaverse is and why there is so much noise around it.

I have been reading about it and am really fascinated with the infinite potential it brings in. It is the NEXT PARADIGM in the way humans interact.

Some bold statements that I would like to make on metaverse -

With metaverse you are NOT ON THE INTERNET - but you are IN THE INTERNET.

Anything and literally ANYTHING where we don’t have a need to FEEL - can be and will be put on the metaverse.

Mark my choice of word FEEL and not touch. Because tasks/scenarios where you have to just touch - will also be metaversed.

The boundary between real and virtual will blur like never before.

Listing down few possibilities which will very soon see the light of the day -

While we interact with anyone today - any part of the world - in the metaverse you can go one step ahead and literally interact with that person, laugh with that person and even go to coffee with them in the virtual world as if you're actually meeting them. Imagine you have a real cup of coffee in your hand in your room, but you are also in a cafe in a virtual world and your friend is visible to you in a 3D avatar - and drinking coffee with you - as if you are actually sitting across in real.

You work in a factory - where you have to operate some machines. You think it cannot be part of the metaverse ? Think again - there are companies which are working on virtual clones of your machines - which you will see right in your room - and operate them all virtually. The same machine, the same size, the same texture, same look, same buttons - all same. Just that - when you press a button virtually it all gets to the real machines via amalgamation of metaverse with IOT and the work happens FOR REAL.

Shopping ? Visit a virtual store in metaverse - check out all goods in 3D - hold them, rotate them - check the texture and color and size and whatever pleases you. Remember with current tech you CANNOT FEEL but rest everything happens. You also put on the apparels virtually - by inputting your body measurements, check the fitment and see yourself wearing it - place the order and voila it lands at your home in the real world.

Metaverse takes the most fundamental nature of human beings that turned us from insignificant apes to the rulers of the planet - to the next level - by projecting three attributes from real to virtual

- experience
- engagement
- expression

When these 3 attributes are in play, humans bond. I believe Metaverse as a concept will redefine the way human beings interact with each other and one day just like we send these zoom/teams links we will be sending link to our own workroom which will be as grand as the google floors.

Leo’s Roar


Greetings! After reviewing my note from last month about Unexpected Events, I was reminded of my father’s admonition when I strayed from the path we were following (to chase butterflies or smell the flowers). He’d turn his head toward me, shake his mane, and roar CHARLIE MIKE. Which all lions know means Continue the March. It’s okay to fall behind, but not okay to quit. So … when faced with Unexpected Events, don’t give up. Buckle down. And Continue the March.

CHARLIE MIKE

Much later in life I learned the CHARLIE MIKE was the International Phonetic Alphabet pronunciation of the abbreviation “CM.” The first two letters in the phrase Continue the March. I also learned that lions weren’t alone in saying CHARLIE MIKE. Dean related that in the U.S. Army the term CHARLIE MIKE means Continue the Mission. It’s the same thought … don’t give up, buckle down, and drive on, Continue the Mission.

The New Year: 2022

Which brings me to my review of my New Year’s Resolutions for 2022. Remember way back in December when I resolved that in the new year, I was going to focus on 10 things: Exercise, Diet, Skills, Certifications, Family, Friends, Co-workers, Community, Nation, and the World. But the new year got off on the wrong foot (or was that the wrong forepaw … the one that I broke) and I fell behind in meeting my own expectations. But I’m not giving up. In true lion fashion I’m going to roar CHARLIE MIKE (just like my dad) and Continue the March toward meeting my goals for the year. That’s my message this month. CHARLIE MIKE … Continue the March. Stay the course in improving yourself and Global Vox. Don’t abandon your goals when the going gets tough or life throws you a curve. Take it, learn from it, and roar CHARLIE MIKE. Life goes on. And I’m ready for whatever comes my way.

We’ll catch up on my New Year’s resolutions next month (and yours). In the meantime, as Kunalsinh says, ““Be Safe, Work Hard, Eat Well, Sleep Tight”. I will!

Bye for now … Leo

About

Groundhog


Groundhog (a rodent native to North America) Day is celebrated every year on February 2. Although the modern holiday is a uniquely American tradition, the history stretches hundreds of years back to European traditions and even ancient times. This is an annual tradition in which a groundhog predicts whether winter will continue or give way to spring soon. If on February 2, the day is sunny and the groundhog emerges from its burrow and sees its own shadow, it is said to predict six more weeks of winter. On the other hand, if the day is cloudy and the animal’s shadow can’t be seen, it is taken to be a sign of milder weather in the following weeks, indicating an early spring season.

Groundhog Day is a popular North American tradition observed in the United States and Canada. It derives from the Pennsylvania Dutch superstition. The groundhog used in the weather prediction celebration was called Punxsutawney Phil and resided near Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania in a knoll or burrow called Gobbler’s Knob. The first recorded annual travel to Gobbler’s Knob for Groundhog Day occurred on February 2nd, 1887. Punxsutawney Phil still resides at Gobbler’s Knob.

PS: While the tradition remains popular in the 21st century, studies have found no consistent correlation between a groundhog seeing its shadow and the subsequent arrival time of spring-like weather.

Small daily efforts multiply into weeks, months and years of effort.
Change takes time but does happen over the course of time.
