What Is The Metaverse? Here’s The Short Answer

In 1992, science fiction author Neal Stephenson used the term metaverse in his cyberpunk novel Snow Crash. While the idea of a metaverse is not new, the future is here. As Facebook rebrands as Meta and Microsoft announce its intention to launch into this new space, we will embark on innovative worlds that allow us to engage in new ways. Whether socially, economically, or professionally, the metaverse promises to expand horizons and push the boundaries of technology as it speeds headlong into the great unknown. 

As with any new future vision, many people wonder what they can expect from the metaverse and if they will engage in the space at all. If the metaverse is an idea new to you, you are not alone. It may help you to understand some primary properties that are to be expected from the metaverse as you determine how, when, and if you leap into its new worlds. 

Metaverse Is A Virtual World

An essential characteristic of a metaverse is that it is a virtual world. With your computer, mobile device, gaming console, wearable technology, and any other device, you can explore the metaverse immersed in 3D graphics and high-quality sound. This immersion makes you feel present in the virtual world, which enhances your experience whether you’re watching a professional digital baseball game or simply exploring. 

Metaverse And Virtual Reality

To enter the metaverse, you must be equipped with a virtual reality headset. This equipment brings the virtual world to life, even if you are still standing in your living room at home. Virtual reality tricks your senses into believing what you are doing and seeing in the metaverse is real, creating the same feelings and responses you would otherwise experience in similar situations in the real world.

Metaverse As A Social Experiment

The metaverse is billed as a social platform for people to engage with others without the boundaries and limitations of the real world. As a person in the metaverse, you are an avatar who can make friends and have adventures with other people. This social aspect of the metaverse is central to Meta’s (Facebook) platform of networking, connecting, and eventually interfacing with the internet. Microsoft is pursuing the metaverse as a better way to connect for professional reasons, upgrading virtual meetings and business-related experiences through virtual reality.

Metaverse Is An Escape

Metaverse allows users to build and visit a virtual world while sitting in the comfort of their homes. New virtual buildings can be constructed and remain in place the next time the user visits. You can even own a virtual property in the metaverse, maybe living next to your favorite movie star. The user’s digital creations and generated content build the metaverse much as it does on other social media platforms.

Final Thoughts

Using the metaverse to socialize with others and create new spaces is appealing in this post-pandemic society. Professionally, appearing as a hologram at your board meeting instead of financing the travel to get there may be the next best business tool we have. If, when, and how you plan to engage with others in the metaverse is, for now, strictly up to you. 

Mission Phantom — Panchia Space

 Once we found Panchia Space by deciphering Drake’s equation, our space station Phantom began to cruise about space, taking images and learning about the geography of humanity’s greatest discovery. Not only that, but a group of scientists led by Aegon Tolstoy has been regularly sending signals into Panchia space in order to locate life forms and track the coordinates of planets within Panchia space. One day, Aegon picked up an odd and persistent radio signal that sounded like a heartbeat coming from a distant panchia space. It is classed as a Fast Radio Burst, or FRB — but lasted far longer. A typical FRB, which is a powerful burst of radio waves, lasts a few milliseconds. The new signal might last up to three seconds, which is around 1,000 times longer than usual.

The signal repeated over 0.02 seconds in a clear pattern, almost like a heartbeat.

“It was uncommon,” said Alfred Owaisi, a postdoctoral researcher at the Fanisko Institute for Astrophysics and Space Research. “Not only was it extraordinarily lengthy, lasting around three seconds, but there were periodic peaks that were astonishingly exact, erupting every fraction of a second — boom, boom, boom — like a pulse. This is the first time the signal has a periodic pattern.”

“This discovery raises the issue of what caused this extreme signal that we’ve never seen before, and how we can utilize this signal to explore the cosmos,” said Owaisi.

 When a moving object generates waves, such as sound or light waves, the length between the waves is compressed in one direction and stretched in the other. In the case of sound, wavelength dictates pitch, which explains why an ambulance’s siren becomes lower in pitch as it approaches. The wavelength of light influences its color. When a star approaches us, its light becomes somewhat bluer, and when it recedes, it reddens. We’re talking about fluctuations of a few parts per million or less, which is why detecting them requires specialist astronomical equipment.

 As a result, the team commanded by Aegon and Owaisi decided to deploy their Multi-billion dollar AI-Robot named “Zorrovar” to the coordinates where they picked up the signal. The inner team compared Zorrovar to the Mini Self Thinking Nuclear WarHead since it can adapt to all environmental circumstances and respond to what it receives.

The Tour of Zorrovar and its discovery.

The Zorrovar separates from the Phantom space station with the rocket to reach its target inside Panchia space.

Will this mission succeed?

Will Zorrovar land on any of the planets in Panchia space?

For all these answers hold the suspense and wait for the next blog.

Getting to Know the Metaverse 

When you hear some people discuss the metaverse, you may get the idea that it is an innovative video game or a worse version of Zoom – you may even think it is the future of the internet. 

However, this isn’t really the case. Since the metaverse is still being created, it’s difficult to define what it really means. 

On a broad level, the technologies that are referred to when discussing the metaverse include things like virtual reality and augmented reality that work to combine the aspects of both the physical and digital worlds. However, it does not mean that the spaces are exclusively accessed through AR or VR. Some virtual worlds, like certain parts of Fortnite that can be found through game consoles, phones, and PCs are now calling themselves the metaverse

While this is a vague description, it’s worth noting that things are still under development. Fansiko is at the forefront of supporting this technology, embracing it, and ensuring the desired results are achieved.

Does life form exist in Panchia space?

Everyone feels something when they’re in an “Excellent starry spot” on a “Wonderful starry night” to glance up and see stars gleaming like diamonds. Astronomy enthusiasts are still captivated by the epic beauty and the immense scale of the cosmos. Humans are driven to explore the unknown, discover new worlds and push the boundaries of our scientific and technical limits. . How many outer space civilizations are now present in our galaxy, and how far away is the nearest one? It’s a question that has perplexed humanity for as long as we’ve stared up at the sky, pondering the most existential of all questions: “Are we alone?”. 

To identify and give an answer to the above question Astrophysicist Frank Drake used an equation in 1961 to estimate the number of developed civilizations that may exist in the Milky Way galaxy. That straightforward version is often regarded as the “second most famous equation in physics (after E= mc2),” and it can be found in practically every astronomy textbook.

Drake’s Equation:

N = R * fp nfffc L.   

R∗ = 1 yr−1

The problem is that astronomers don’t know precise values for any of these variables, therefore any computation of the Drake Equation is currently speculative. However, advances in some of these domains have given astronomers a better chance of discovering an explanation.

Our discoverers at Fanisko spent a significant amount of time decoding Drake’s equation in order to detect life resources outside our galaxy. As a first victory, Our team identified “Panchia Space” via our space shuttle and discovered that there are some planets and stars within Panchia Space, similar to the Milky Way. We also made a significant finding after gathering samples from the planets; those samples show that there is a metal that is similar to the indestructible stag, which we named Zoharium. Keeping all of this in mind, our Discoverers devised a new equation from Drake’s formula by including the volume of zoharium and the stars and suns that surrounded that location.

Fanisko’s Equation – FA = S * fp NO *  Z6 *½ ( PL Pi PC*3.14  )* T 

FA -Developed Civilizations inside Panchia Space

S    -Rate at which the Sun forms on Panchia Space

fP   -Fraction of said sun that has planetary systems

NO -Number of planets in a Panchia space with a habitable environment

PL  -Fraction of possible planets that can support life

Pi    -Fraction of life-sustaining planets that can support intelligent life.

PC -Fraction of intelligent civilizations that have survived long enough to develop communication technology that allows them to send signals of their existence into space.

– Amount of time that these civilizations emit signals before ceasing to exist.

Z6 *½  = Zoharium count *Total planets identified / Travel velocity of the planets.

Using the established formula in connection with the recognized volume of stars and planets and the rate of travel velocity calculation, the signals of Panchia space will be retrieved and detected.

According to this equation, if messages or signals are sent into space using the same approach, even if we cease to exist as a species in 3022, there will be 60 intelligent civilizations/planets in Panchia space alone. So far, we have found six surviving planets in Panchia Space that are traveling at a similar velocity, two of which have verified life resources.

Now back to answering the question about extraterrestrial life from Panchia Space.

Extraterrestrials are basically a portrayal of human self-discovery and accommodation—both physical and psychological. It deals with the indivisibility of human nature from its interactions with otherness, and how both of these drive the shape of our individual self-esteem as well as species identity and more importantly validates that “we are not alone”. extraterrestrials, like humans, have developed a magnificent society in their worlds, which appears to be beyond our reach.

Our planet Earth is made up of many minerals, but all of the earth’s resources are dispersed. The tale appears to be different on extraterrestrial worlds, which are formed by a substance called “Zoharium.” With the correct propulsion system, a milligram of Zoharium may even destroy a country; these materials are accessible in several tons. They did not realize the value of that wonderful resource initially, but as time passed, they realized the value, power, and actual potential of Zoharium.

The Time of the NFT

The non-fungible token or NFT is catching on in today’s business world. Of course, a lot of that appeal comes from the consumer side as well.

People are getting excited about these new kinds of digital assets and how they relate to what innovators have done with the blockchain.

We are part of that, as you can see by looking at new awards and recognitions in this type of digital environment!

B2B Plug-and-Play

Our digital engagement tools are perfect for companies that want to leverage the appeal of digital marketing and engagement in the sports world.

Basically speaking, people and companies are getting on board with the idea of taking technology to the next level. That may have started with things like NFTs, where athletes and celebrities made their own tokens, but now there’s also the promise of the metaverse, that is due to change business in a big way. 

By keeping on top of all of this, Fanisko has been able to set up services unlike anything that sports merchandising and ad world has seen before: initiatives that help to usher in the new era of the NFT and of the metaverse as well. 

Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality

Marketers and people in all kinds of industries are integrating both augmented reality and virtual reality in products and services.

You can see this in play with the Oculus headset, but it goes far beyond that. Basically, the AR and VR in the metaverse can be any technology that helps to accomplish the result: a virtual “place” populated with users that are represented by proxy in the digital worlds that are created. 

In a general sense, we’re moving toward the metaverse model – that’s partly why Facebook changed its name – and in the future, we’re likely to have virtual meeting halls in which we are represented by avatars that we purchase as NFTs.

Fanisko has gotten in on the ground floor of this for digital sports advertising. Our founders are happy to be early adopters of NFT and AR/VR technologies. Take a look at the website for more on how we are innovating in our field! We are happy to be in the fast lane when it comes to integrating new technologies into our workflows and how we do things.
