Metauniverse： Quantum Entanglement between Virtual World and Real World
What is the metauniverse? It’s a bit difficult to answer this question. Some say that it is the third generation Internet, namely web3.0, a decentralized Internet running on blockchain technology; Some say it is a virtual world constructed by VR/AR and other technologies; The concept I once gave was the mirror image of the real world, that is, the digital real world built by artificial intelligence.
There are also three different attitudes towards the meta-universe.
The first is a positive attitude. Zuckerberg, including Facebook, directly renamed Facebook as Meta, the meta-universe; China’s attitude is positive from top to bottom. Shijingshan District of Beijing has made a specific plan to build a "meta-cosmic city". The construction of "twin cities" is actually a concrete application of metacosmic technology.
The second is a negative attitude. Including Microsoft President Bill Gates. He thinks the metauniverse is useless. Compared with the meta-universe, he values artificial intelligence more.
The third is a wait-and-see attitude. Mainly in countries or regions with insufficient scientific and technological innovation ability, look at the clouds and clouds.
In this regard, I am relatively positive. Because the emergence of any new technology is objective and subjective; The result of comprehensive driving of technical and natural factors. The emergence of the "Meta-Universe" is not groundless, but the result of the wide application and full accumulation of new technologies such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, AR/VR, ultra-large-scale computing, 5G/6G communication, satellite precise navigation and positioning, and digital maps, which can be integrated and innovated. Since it has appeared, we should give it a place, provide it with enough application scenarios and play a positive role in promoting the development of social productive forces.
The metauniverse is available not because it exists in isolation, just like a building block built in a glass box. But because of the internal connection between the metauniverse and the real world. Metauniverse cannot exist in isolation from the real world, but the unity of opposites between the virtual world and the real world. In this sense, it is more like quantum entanglement, that is, quantum entanglement between the virtual world and the real world. The real world moves, and the virtual world must move with it; On the contrary, the virtual world moves, and the real world must also act accordingly.
For human beings, the "metauniverse" has at least three functions:The first is the recording function.It is more like the archives of the real world. Everything in the real world can be completely and dynamically recorded in the form of simulation through the meta-universe, and it will last forever in the digital world.The second is the communication function.As a new generation of Internet, Metauniverse can establish a cross-time communication network between people through virtual human and VR technology, so that real people can communicate face to face through digital people in the virtual world.The third is the innovative function.People’s ideas can be sketched, designed and virtually constructed through the "meta-universe", and then return to the real world after reaching satisfactory results, and the real world will complete the construction process, thus forming a transformation and upgrading of the real world.
Therefore, I don’t agree with Bill Gates. Artificial intelligence technology is very good, but it also needs a good application scenario to build a platform for it to play its role. Metauniverse is actually an important platform for artificial intelligence to play its role.
It should be pointed out that the application of metauniverse requires sufficient conditions, especially 5G/6G communication. Without the foundation of a new generation of intelligent communication network with large throughput and low delay, the meta-universe simply cannot operate. Zuckerberg’s failure to engage in the "metauniverse" is something I have long concluded, because both the United States and Europe lack such a foundation. It can be said that today, only China has the sufficient conditions to engage in the meta-universe. Mentougou, Beijing, is bound to succeed in building a "city of meta-universe".
It can be concluded that in the near future, China will become the "top of the meta-universe".
