What is a metaverse?
The whole idea of the metaverse became quite a buzzword when the social media giant – Facebook rebranded itself to “Meta”. Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO, of Facebook, announced the move to rename his organization at the end of October 2021 and this rebranding exercise was a step in the direction of encouraging the growth of a new digital environment in the metaverse. This initiative by the social media giant also prompted several other enterprises to explore the term and experiment with the metaverse development platform.
What is a multiverse?
The notion of a multiverse implies multiple universes which although present as a concept but its existence has not been proven yet. Theories suggest that the concept of multiple universes dates back to the first known civilization days. In fact, there are theories that suggest that our universe is just one of the universes existing along with others but where each represents a different history and has a separate set of physical laws governing it. Some claims have been made by the Many Worlds Interpretation of quantum physics that multiple universes do exist simultaneously. The interpretation claims that their parallel universes and the set of all these universes are the “multiverse”.
