The Metaverse is a visual network of virtual environments where people can interact via their avatars. 

If online multiplayer video games are combined with immersive virtual reality and high-speed internet, we can begin to understand the Metaverse.


The metaverse has been in the science fiction realm for ages, but it is only now that Big Tech envisions it as the future internet, with companies like Facebook wanting to set up an immersive, 3D/virtual ecosystem for people to work, play, study and shop.

Stashed ideas

2 IDEAS

Venting feelings is not always helpful

Science suggests that while venting your emotions feel good in the moment, it might make matters worse in the long run.

Sharing our emotions reduces our stress and make us feel closer to others. When we open up, and people respond with sympathy, we feel understood and supported. But, expressing our emotions often to others may make us feel worse if we fail to gain some perspective and don't take steps to soothe ourselves.

The Lure Of Science Fiction

Science Fiction, or Sci-Fi, which takes us into fantasy worlds with aliens, robots, spaceships, time machines, powerful superhumans and monsters, is an extremely appealing genre, due to its boundary-less escapist content.

It challenges existing assumptions and limitations, exploring questions that were never asked before, something which closer-to-reality fiction and non-fiction cannot do with ease.

Laughter As A Scary Sound

Laughter, a positive, contagious and heartwarming expression can be scary sometimes. This phenomenon is due to our fears, which stem from a misalignment in what we see and what our expectations were.

If laughter sounds sinister, out of context or out of tune with what is happening (like a person laughing while seeing people dying in an accident) it sends a red flag to the mind, signalling that something is not right or that the person is not to be trusted.

A study done by researchers from Carnegie Mellong University found that videoconferencing hampers group collaboration, problem solving, and it can also reduce collective intelligence.

Moreorver, videoconferincing leads to a higher inequality when it comes to contributing to the conversation due to the disruption in vocal synchrony.
