Exploring the Digital Universe: Understanding the Metaverse
“Metaverse is a coined term that combines ‘meta,’ meaning ‘transcendent’ or ‘higher-dimensional,’ with ‘universe,’ conveying the concept of ‘space’ or ‘vast expanse.’ While the meaning may seem abstract and challenging to grasp, in essence, it refers to a three-dimensional digital virtual space created on the internet.
In this digital realm, users have the freedom to navigate, coming together to play games, shop, engage in business activities such as meetings and presentations, among other possibilities. It allows users to undertake various actions similar to real-life scenarios, creating the sensation of exploring another expansive world.”
