Do you often confuse the terms Metaverse and Multiverse? Don’t worry, this detailed guide to the differences between the two will help.
The world we live in is constantly changing as we witness new and innovative technological inventions that are being created day after day in the digital and communication space.
Many years ago, global communication was a real challenge for people. A truly new universe! However, with the advent of the “network” or the Internet, the world of communication has changed thanks to e-mail and social media, which have greatly simplified the way people communicate.
For those of you who believe that the rise of technology is limited to transforming the way we communicate with each other and easier access to information, we must say that it is time to go to a new level and look at -closer concepts of the Meta universe and Multiverse. Because the future has prepared many new ways for us to communicate from a distance!
What is the Meta universe?
Neil Stevenson first introduced the term Meta universe in his 1993 science fiction novel Snow Crash.
The metaverse is a decentralized virtual world built on blockchain technology, in which people can interact with digital objects through their digital avatars. All transactions in the Meta universe are recorded in a fixed decentralized book, which ensures maximum security and transparency.
Many people call the Meta universe the “most beautiful heir to the Internet” and to some extent they are right. In general, it is a vast virtual world composed of various 3D worlds depicted in real-time.
An unlimited number of users can be part of the Meta universe at the same time, and everyone experiences it in their way. To simplify the concept, even more, we will tell you that the Meta universe is a set of virtual spaces where people can interact with others who are not physically close to them.
Once part of it, through their custom avatar, users will be able to walk, listen to music, play video games, visit NFT museums, hang out with friends, and much more.
The metaverse is enjoying popularity today as the leading social media giant Facebook changes its name to Meta. The corporation’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg hailed the move as his company’s initiative to promote a whole new digital environment. Facebook’s initiative has served as a clear call for many other organizations to experiment with the Meta universe.
Simply put, the metauniverse is the first of its kind digital reality or collection of virtual spaces where people can interact with each other and create new experiences.
What is a Multiverse?
Things with the Multiverse are a little more complicated. Since science is still trying to define its meaning, we know only a few basic things at this stage. Multiverses look quite attractive and achievable, but they are still hypothetical.
First of all, the Multiverse represents the idea that there are an infinite number of universes. This concept has existed since ancient times, but only in recent years has science shown serious interest in it and it is no longer just a fantasy for the future or a fairy tale.
The main way to interpret its existence is measured by the theory of quantum mechanics “Interpretation of many worlds” (MWI). According to this interpretation, each possible outcome of each event exists in a separate universe, so for example, if you toss a coin and cut an airplane with one blow, this universe will split in two – one where you have the cockpit and another where you have the tail.
The other way in which physics interprets the idea of the Multiverse is string theory. In string theory, which explains the smallest unit of matter, we can explain the basis of the Multiverse. According to her, all particles are essentially a collection of smaller strings. There are many universes with different collections of rules and each universe is different from the other, according to the theory. It is interesting to note that string theory cannot explain our universe without accepting that other universes exist today.
Although the concept of the multiverse is fascinating in itself, it also has some implications for the way we look at the universe. On the one hand, this means that there can be an infinite number of other universes, each with its own set of physical laws. This may explain why our universe seems fine-tuned to life, as there may be an infinite number of other universes with different laws and conditions.
What is the main difference between the Meta universe and Multiverse?
Having clarified the basic theory of what the Meta universe and Multiverse are, let’s explain the distinguishing features that make them different from each other.
The metaverse is a new concept that suggests that in the future we may have a connected digital world. Its users can easily switch between two different realities based on their needs.
The multiverse represents an additional ecosystem of digital worlds. The different digital ecosystems within the Multiverse do not allow consumers to switch seamlessly between digital worlds.
One of the most widely discussed misconceptions about the difference between the Meta universe and the Multiverse is that each represents several ecosystems. In the case of the Multiverse, the user can find an infinite number of ecosystems that are not connected.
The metaverse offers a digital new environment that allows users to successfully switch between different experiences, video games, and experiences. As a user, you can enter the Universe simply with your desktop or augmented reality devices, comparable to Google Glass or VR glasses, and enjoy the experience.
