Meta

The only word I knew with meta in it was metaphysics, but I got out of my cave these days to stretch a little and I kept hearing 'metaverse, metaverse' everywhere. It was quiet in my cave, never heard it being shouted. I kinda knew about 'internet 3.0', but with my nil interest in VR stuff, I let it sleep...and slept as well.

I am curious about this whole thing, does anyone have some kind of insight to share? (my reaction was 'i'm too old for this s***, better get back to my cave') Also heard Fb changed names, roblox is a game people actually play...I know what you're all thinking ''Be more active, Ungod, you're really showing your ignorance'', but...I've looked at that Roblox stuff. It's fugly. Then I went to read a bit on it and guess what? As of August 2020, Roblox had over 164 million monthly active users, with it being played by over half of all children aged under 16 in the United States. Wtf. Seriously, W.T.F.

Any point in sticking around for 'the next phase' or should I pack my toys and get the f out?

I always called metacognition as 'the self that regulates other selves'; I think that a revelation is working similarly, although a revelation/nirvana/satori moment may be extended to bringing into the consciousness what is hidden in the subconscious.

Your definition of meta is obviously not shared by these guys...they take the literal meaning of ''beyond'' or ''superior'' and I can't really see how it's above the reality we experience currently.

If you talk about gaming meta comes up often, it is defined as:

2. A term used in mmo meaning the Most Effective Tactic Available. It's basically what works in a game regardless of what you wish would work.

At least by urban dictionary. Taking that definition you can understand it as the way to play a game, all guides would stem into this type of playstyle. Why there is a limit to what a meta can be is because we are actively creating the meta, it is fully responsible for our actions in it but it would not exist without our actions. I put it nicely before in this line "When I learned a "meta" is basically popular playstyles that are powerful in comparison to other popular playstyles."

You can see how it is supposed to be beyond or superior as a concept, the ideal notion of how to do something, but in reality nothing is so perfect.
