The multiplanetary economic model of the metaverse
As in other major religions, the Bible supports the archetypal narrative where our universe was born out of nothing by deities while humans would play a special role within their creation.
Genesis manifests the intentions of God in the process of creating the earth’s atmosphere, plants and animals, stars, and also humans: “Then God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them ”.
In this story, God, as the main architect of our universe, portrayed humans in his own image, as a key part of standing out from the rest of his big plans.
Similar to deities, we are meant to be creators and in our role of builder, we begin our work through concepts which, when proven, allow us to learn invaluable lessons about the universe of God and about ourselves. as humans.
Along with the irony of this resemblance, we are also working on assembling our own universe, or parallel universes, like the Metaverse. In addition, our man-made universes will then contain all forms of life, as a literal or metaphorical extension of our reality and of ourselves.
The metaverse is made up of virtual spaces populated by games and virtual worlds that are possible thanks to the Internet.
However, it is an ambitious and futuristic concept because it includes virtual and physical spaces jointly forming a new reality for a shared collective experience. Where virtual worlds interact with the real world, enhanced by augmented reality, artificial intelligence and biotechnology.
In essence, all of these powerful technologies are already shaping our world and will shape future generations while solving technical problems.
There was a time, not so long ago, in the era of the discovery of the 16e century, when our world was largely unexplored. Geographical exploration sponsored by competing empires was a heroic task, where sea monsters and all manner of magical creatures haunted us in these sacred areas of the unexplored world.
During this time, important heroes of their time, such as Christopher Columbus, Magellan, Walter Raleigh and many others, were appreciated for their bravery in granting them noble titles and allowing them to take the spoils of war.
Still, it’s relevant to mention that these individual explorations weren’t enough to enable mass adoption, which was the primary focus of their sponsors. The European states also had to permanently occupy and populate territories to make these geographies a productive entity of the empire in order to strengthen their supremacy.
In the face of growing needs, policies have been put in place to ensure that the new lands become a sustainable and functional part of their territories.
As a means of mobilizing large migratory flows from Europe to the rest of the world, a wide variety of benefits were granted to settlers through policies such as social status, family property laws and exemptions, and even in some cases, religious freedom. In other words, people have found the value in moving to new places in return for taking huge risks and working really hard.
Likewise, space exploration began as a heroic affair for the supremacy of nations. What used to be called the space age began with a space race during the Cold War era.
The USSR struck first with Sputnik in 1957 and its hero Gagarin in 1961, while the United States retaliated with Project Apollo and the unforgettable Neil Armstrong.
Interestingly, initial support for the space race only lasted a decade, losing momentum since the early 1970s, consequently draining the budgets for these programs to the present day.
If there is one lesson to be learned from the consequences of the Age of Discovery, it is that people will support their heroes, but to support exploration and settlement programs they will need to find enough value to invest in these efforts.
Right now, a significant array of arguments ranging from the publication of thousands of documents on UFOs, to transhumanism, to the transformation of a multiplanetary species, or to a potential global catastrophe, are being put on the table to fuel our collective imagination in favor of space exploration. .
It even seems like there is a 100-year deadline for us to become a “multi-planetary species” as once the father of the rocket, Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, dreamed and dedicated his life as well.
However, fear, rivalry or curiosity has proven to be strong enough to fuel and sustain for decades, nationally or globally, the kind of investments that space exploration and subsequent colonization require.
In this matter, the metaverse provides useful options for finding answers. After all, we, in our role as creators, are building a very engaging virtual world that satisfies us in our daily lives far more than the cold, alien, and expensive universe exploration proposition.
Sustained and cohesive collective support for space exploration can be found by building bridges between God’s Universe and ours, allowing the Metaverse to benefit from space exploration.
A Metaverse Multiplanetary Economic Program could be launched using blockchain technology and other technologies from the Fourth Industrial Revolution, easily implemented to provide real experience and therefore increase our sense of belonging.
This hypothetical Metaverse multiplanetary economic program could begin with a token sale to support space exploration. The token could be launched by public or private organizations wishing to develop their explorations while revealing to their investors the expected benefits in their business plans.
That is, a standard technological development accompanied by a typical token offering. Such a concept could be easily launched by the public or private sector, or both together, to allow an attractive investment while providing a “Metaverse Experience” to the collective.
This economic program could develop as a full human experience with, for example, the construction of a game, or a multiplanetary experience of the metaverse (MME).
The MME could be a metaverse wormhole connecting us instantly in present time on planet Earth, with a hypothetical future in a spaceship or on another planet. Besides entertainment, attendees could invest in technological developments for space travel and to support life in space – or simply acquire property on planet Earth.
Developing those ideas isn’t about whether or not we have the talent and the technology – we have it all – it’s more about implementing unexplored possibilities from a business model perspective.
Therefore, the real question is “when will the sponsors of these initiatives be ready to share at the public, private and collective level?” Sharing risk among nations is not a new prospect in space exploration, it was already proposed 60 years ago and fruitful collaboration was achieved later after this call.
More recently, the private sector has been well received in this issue, which until then had been reserved for the military. However, collaboration on the necessary scale, private, public and collective, will be completely new for our species. Until now, the collective has been drawn into macro-projects by conscription or patriotism, but never by participation.
Nonetheless, blockchain is all about inclusion through decentralization and distribution. Much like the Internet of Information, blockchain technology (the Internet of Value) can transform the lives of billions of people around the world by creating social impact. By applying it to take advantage of space exploration, we will unlock unlimited possibilities for human collaboration.
If this last stage of our social relationships grows, our man-made universe, the Metaverse, will indeed allow us to learn invaluable information about the universe, but more importantly, we will also discover and prosper the best part. of ourselves.
This will probably be possible since, after all, God has represented humans in his own image. Nevertheless, we still have to prove that this claim is correct.
