The Great Narrative and The Metaverse


The Great Narrative and The Metaverse, Part 1: A Dystopian Vision of the Future


As the World Economic Forum prepares for the return of their annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland, the “international organization for Public-Private cooperation” is launching the next phase of The Great Reset agenda – The Great Narrative.

On November 11th and 12th, the World Economic Forum held a 2-day meeting called “The Great Narrative” in Dubai, United Arab Emirates to discuss “longer-term perspectives” and “co-create a narrative that can help guide the creation of a more resilient, inclusive and sustainable vision for our collective future”. The WEF gathered futurists, scientists, and philosophers from around the world to dream up their vision of how to reset the world and imagine what it might look like in the next 50 years. The discussions will be collected and published in a forthcoming book, The Great Narrative, in January 2022.


The release of The Great Narrative book will coincide with the annual WEF meeting on January 17 to 21st, 2022 in Davos, Switzerland, with the focus “Working Together, Restoring Trust”. According to the WEF, the “meeting will focus on accelerating stakeholder capitalism, harnessing the technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and ensuring a more inclusive future of work”. The message is essentially the same one the WEF and their partners have been calling for since the beginning of the COVID-19 event – a Great Reset of the economic, governmental, healthcare, food production, and technological systems which underpin all of human life.


The Great Reset agenda was announced in early June 2020 by the WEF as an apparent response to COVID-19. The launch of The Great Reset was supported by Klaus Schwab, the founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum; England’s Prince Charles; Antonio Guterres, Secretary-General of the UN; and Kristalina Georgieva of the International Monetary Fund. The WEF has spent the last year spinning their propaganda and partnering with governments and private businesses that share their goals of a world run by Technocrats who make top down decisions for the masses in the name of fighting for diversity and sustainability.


Regular readers will remember that on October 18, 2019, the WEF partnered with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security on a high-level pandemic exercise known as Event 201. Event 201 simulated how the world would respond to a coronavirus pandemic which swept around the planet. The simulation imagined 65 million people dying, mass lock downs, quarantines, censorship of alternative viewpoints under the guise of fighting “disinformation,” and even floated the idea of arresting people who question the pandemic narrative.


Now, as the Great Reset Agenda moves into its 2nd year, Schwab and his associates at the WEF are shifting their messaging and focus towards “The Great Narrative”.


The Great Narrative and the Fourth Industrial Revolution

Before we discuss the actual content of The Great Narrative event, let’s look at what is meant by a “Great Narrative”. In many forms of media narrative is defined as “a way of presenting connected events in order to tell a good story”, or “the telling of related events in a cohesive format that centers around a central theme or idea”. In our daily lives a narrative can be seen as the way we as humans come to understand the world around us. We form narratives or stories about our political realities and our interpersonal relationships.

Additionally, in philosophy the term narrative can take on an even deeper meaning. Recently, Tim Hinchliffe at Sociable wrote about the concept of narrative in relation to philosophy:

“The idea of a great narrative is something that the French philosopher Jean-Francois Lyotard called a “grand narrative,” (aka “metanarrative“) which, according to Philo-Notes, “functions to legitimize power, authority, and social customs” — everything that the great reset is trying to achieve. Authoritarians use great narratives to legitimize their own power, and they do this by claiming to have knowledge and understanding that speaks to a universal truth. At the same time, authoritarians use these grand narratives in an “attempt to translate alternative accounts into their own language and to suppress all objections to what they themselves are saying.”

With this understanding, the WEF’s call for a “Great Narrative” should be seen for what it truly is – an attempt to displace all other visions of the future of humankind by placing the WEF and their partners at the heart of a narrative which paints them as the heroes of our time. This fits perfectly with the Technocratic philosophy employed by WEF founder Klaus Schwab. He envisions a future where “public-private partnerships” of government and private business and so-called philanthropies use their wealth, influence, and power to design the future they believe is best for humanity. In actuality, the Technocrat philosophy merges with a Transhumanist mindset that sees humanity as limited, flawed, and in need of augmentation by technology in order to accelerate what Schwab calls the Fourth Industrial Revolution.


On the first day of The Great Narrative, Klaus Schwab sat with Mohammad Abdullah Al Gergawi, Minister of Cabinet Affairs of the United Arab Emirates, for a panel titled Narrating the Future. “We are here to develop the Great Narrative, a story for the future,” Schwab stated during the panel. “We meet today to develop a great narrative; a story for the future. I quote His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, when H.H. said “The future belongs to those who can imagine it, design it, and execute it.” We are here now to imagine the future, design the future, and then execute.”


Minister Al Gergawi spoke about the public “looking for a way for a ‘Great Transformation'”. The Minister did his part to pay lip service to social justice by using all the usual buzzwords employed by the WEF and the UN while mentioning the world’s largest 1% owning more wealth than ever before, the world’s poor living on less than a dollar a day, and climate change. Al Gergawi also repeatedly mentioned that “the future belongs to those who imagine it, design it, and implement it”, as well as discussing the next stage of human evolution and the role that technology will play.

“Human evolution has been through phases – we discovered fire, we discovered the wheel – today with technology, whatever will happen the next 50 years will be totally different. So for us, as humanity, for hundreds of thousands of years we have been at a normal pace,” UAE Minister of Cabinet Affairs Mohammad Abdullah Al Gergawi stated. “The current pace is complex because for the first time with technology we are putting our society, economy, our government, our life together, and there’s just one platform. Whatever will happen in the future will be based on what we design now.”

The Minister also spoke of the need for government to evolve as an institution in the same way we have seen private sector institutions evolve. This is likely a reference to the fact that the prime mission of the WEF is to change the role of government and private businesses until there is hardly a distinction between state and private power.


Another topic which was heavily discussed was the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) and the metaverse. The metaverse will be discussed in part 2 of this series. The 4IR is another pet project of Klaus Schwab which was first announced in December 2015. To put it simply, the 4IR is the digital panopticon of the future, where digital surveillance is omnipresent and humanity uses digital technology to alter our lives. Often associated with terms like the Internet of Things, the Internet of Bodies, the Internet of Humans, and the Internet of Senses, this world will be powered by 5G and 6G technology. Of course, for Schwab and other globalists, the 4IR also lends itself towards more central planning and top-down control. The goal is a track and trace society where all transactions are logged, every person has a digital ID that can be tracked, and social malcontents are locked out of society via social credit scores.

“Ubiquitous, mobile supercomputing. Intelligent robots. Self-driving cars. Neuro-technological brain enhancements. Genetic editing. The evidence of dramatic change is all around us and it’s happening at exponential speed,” Schwab wrote for the announcement of the 4IR.

At one point Schwab noted the relevance of having The Great Narrative meeting in the UAE. “When I wrote my book and I introduced this notion of the 4IR as the shaping force for our future, we felt it was very important that we really work together on a global level so we use the potential of the 4IR for the benefit of mankind because technology also has certain pitfalls and can be used to the detriment of humankind,” Schwab stated at The Great Narrative. “So we established this network of centers around the world, and you were the first country which responded positively. I would like to thank the Minister for the great cooperation we have here with our Center for 4IR, and I am also very happy that we have here assembled economists, sociologists, but also representatives, scientists who can really enlighten us about all those new technologies.”


During the panel The Next 50 Years, Klaus Schwab talked with His Excellency Omar bin Sultan Al Olama, Minister of State for Artificial Intelligence, Digital Economy, and Remote Work Applications, about his vision of the next 50 years for his country. Mr. Al Olama is also a partner of the WEF. It is during this panel that the decision to host The Great Narrative in the UAE becomes clear. The UAE has spent the last few years promoting itself as a hotbed for digital technology developments, specifically AI and robotics. Minister Al Olama even joked that the goal of his job was to eventually turn himself into a form of AI.


Minister Al Olama also discussed how hotels, taxis, and other industries have been revolutionized by digital technology, and the inevitability of the economy becoming digitized. “There isn’t going to be two economies,” he stated. “We are right now at this inflection point where we can confidently say – traditional economy, digital economy, but at one point, in the near future, as the 4IR becomes more mainstream, there is only going to be a digital economy. Or an economy, if it’s not purely digital, is enabled by digital means.”


Al Olama also discusses his nation’s investments into 5G technology and how these investments will help them lead the way into the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

This discussion of artificial intelligence, the 4IR, a cashless digital society, and the Great Reset are absolutely vital for the average person to comprehend. These unelected technocrats continue to host events and release reports as if the people of the world are asking for their help and guidance. They hide under a veneer of benevolence, but the facade is wearing thin and the people of the world are beginning to question the true mission of the WEF, the Gates Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, and similar players. To understand their true intentions we should take note of the actions of the WEF’s partnered nations and organizations. This includes the United Arab Emirates.


A Technocratic Authoritarianism


While the political leaders of the UAE and Klaus Schwab may promote themselves as the heroes of our times, we should judge them according to their actions and the company they keep, not the flowery language they use to distract us. The simple fact is the UAE has a horrible record on human rights. The nation is known for deporting those who renounce Islam, limited press freedoms, and enforcing elements of Sharia law.


In 2020, the UAE announced the creation of a human rights council to address human rights issues, but critics have accused the leadership of “whitewashing” the problem. Despite promises of change and relaxing of laws around alcohol and divorce, the UAE is still struggling to maintain an image of a free nation.


In September, European Union legislators called on the UAE to free several prominent human rights activists and other “peaceful dissidents” imprisoned in the country. They also called for a boycott of the ongoing Expo 2020 in Dubai. (The organizers of the Expo themselves recently announced a commitment to the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals which are part of the Agenda 2030 & The Great Reset.) The resolution called for the “immediate and unconditional” release of Ahmed Mansoor, Mohammed al-Roken and Nasser bin Ghaith.


Mansoor is a 52-year-old man who was arrested in 2017 and sentenced to 10 years in prison on charges of publishing false information and “insulting the status and prestige of the UAE”, including in posts on social media platforms. Al-Roken is a human rights lawyer currently serving a 10-year prison sentence after being found guilty of attempting to overthrow the government in a July 2013 mass trial. Bin Ghaith was also imprisoned for 10 years in March 2017 for criticizing UAE authorities via social media.


According to the 2021 Human Rights Watch report on the UAE:

“In 2020, United Arab Emirates (UAE) authorities continued to invest in a “soft power” strategy aimed at painting the country as a progressive, tolerant, and rights-respecting nation, yet its fierce intolerance of criticism was on full display with the continued unjust imprisonment of leading human rights activist Ahmed Mansoor, academic Nasser bin Ghaith, and other many activists and dissidents, some of whom had completed their sentences as long as three years ago and remain detained without a clear legal basis. Scores of activists, academics, and lawyers are serving lengthy sentences in UAE prisons, in many cases following unfair trials on vague and broad charges that violate their rights to free expression and association.”

At first glance, these accusations of human rights violations make the WEF’s decision to host their Great Narrative event in the UAE an odd one. After all, why would an organization which claims it’s motivated by creating a world which is more inclusive, diverse, sustainable, and equitable turn a blind eye to these disturbing concerns and partner with the leaders of the United Arab Emirates? However, this choice makes perfect sense once you accept that the WEF’s language about fairness and designing a better future for humanity is utter nonsense.


In their vision of the future, you will own nothing and be happy as authoritarian nations like the UAE partner with Big Tech to monitor their populations’ use of carbon, electricity, and other resources while assigning a social credit score to determine each individual’s access to privileges like travel and work. This is the “Great Narrative” the Technocrats wish to imprint on our minds and hearts in this “Decade of Transformation”.


Who Will Design the Future?

When Klaus Schwab opened The Great Narrative conference he referenced difficulties in “shaping the future”. Specifically, he said there are 3 obstacles standing in the way of the World Economic Forum’s Great Reset agenda.


First, Schwab believes “people have become much more self-centered, and to a certain extent, egoistic.”This, he says, makes it “more difficult to create a compromise because shaping the future, designing the future usually needs a common will of the people.” To me this sounds like a subtle admission that the people of the world are more interested in their own personal visions of the future as opposed to the Technocrats vision. This could be spun to say that people are “self-centered” or “egoistic”, but another way of looking at it is that the public does not desire to have a global governance scheme which attempts to centrally plan their lives.

The second obstacle faced by Schwab and the WEF is that “we all have become so much crisis-focused with the pandemic”. The 3rd obstacle to transforming the world is that, “the world has become so complex” and “simple solutions to complex problems do not suffice anymore.” Schwab also mentioned that there is no longer a separation between social, political, technological, ecological – “it’s all interwoven”.


“It’s very difficult in such a situation to really bring everybody together and to imagine and to design the future,” Schwab stated. Again, this seems to indicate that Schwab is aware that he will not be able to willingly force every nation or population into the Technocrats Great Reset/Great Narrative vision. There will be holdouts. There will be resistance and non-compliance to the top down, centralized vision of the Predator Class.


However, despite this resistance from the working class people of the world, there is still a grave danger that the Technocrats will, indeed, achieve their vision. The Predator Class behind The Great Reset, Agenda 2030, etc., have spent decades (if not centuries) planning and investing trillions of dollars into their attempts at worldwide societal transformation. These psychopaths are fully aware of the importance of outlining a vision of the future and taking concrete steps to design said future. While they work night and day to bring their nightmare scenario into existence the average person is painfully unaware of the despotic plans unfolding before them. Even those who are aware of the Great Reset plans often lack in tangible actions to prevent being swallowed up by the Technocratic-Transhumanist takeover.


If we aim to break free from the Great Reseters we must have our own vision of the future that we hope to design. We ought to spend more time working on manifesting our visions of a free, thriving, empowered humanity where individual liberty, self-ownership, and bodily autonomy are celebrated. We have the power to imagine, design, and execute our vision of the future. We have the power to create the People’s Reset.


The Great Narrative And The Metaverse, Part 2: Will The Metaverse End Human Freedom?


As the World Economic Forum announces the need for a “Great Narrative” to unite the people around their Technocratic ideals, the public is learning of the WEF and their partners’ plans to build a dystopian virtual world known as The Metaverse.

In mid-November, Klaus Schwab, Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, sat with Mohammad Abdullah Al Gergawi, Minister of Cabinet Affairs of the United Arab Emirates, to announce the launch of The Great Narrative. This announcement represents the next phase in the WEF’s “Great Reset” agenda.


“We are here to develop the Great Narrative, a story for the future,” Schwab stated during a panel titled Narrating the Future. “We meet today to develop a great narrative; a story for the future. I quote His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, when H.H. said ‘The future belongs to those who can imagine it, design it, and execute it.’ We are here now to imagine the future, design the future, and then execute.”


One of the hot topics discussed at The Great Narrative launch was the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR).


The 4IR is a pet project of Klaus Schwab which was first announced in December 2015. The 4IR is the digital panopticon of the future, where digital surveillance is omnipresent and humanity uses digital technology to alter our lives. Often associated with terms like the “Internet of Things,” the “Internet of Bodies,” the “Internet of Humans,” and the “Internet of Senses,” this world will have 5G and 6G technology powering smart cities where jobs and duties typically performed by humans are managed by artificial intelligence and robots. In this vision, humanity is also tagged with wearable technology which interacts with the AI and smart cities.


Of course, for Schwab and other globalists, the 4IR also lends itself towards more central planning and top-down control. The goal is a track and trace society where all transactions are logged, every person has a digital ID that can be tracked, and social malcontents are locked out of society via social credit scores.


Another topic mentioned at The Great Narrative was the Metaverse. The concepts of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the Metaverse are inextricably linked. This article is a brief exploration of the concept and the companies attempting to bring the virtual universe to life.


Understanding the Metaverse


The vast majority of the public has only recently become aware of the term due to the recent announcement that Facebook would be changing their name to Meta, an ode to Mark Zuckerberg’s desire to move humanity into the virtual world known as the Metaverse.

In July, Zuckerberg explained his plans for the metaverse in an interview with The Verge, stating that he imagines a future where people are wearing eye glasses or contacts which show a virtual reality where they can interact with friends and the environment.


“I think if we can help build the next set of computing platforms and experiences across that in a way that’s more natural and lets us feel more present with people, I think that’ll be a very positive thing,” Zuckerberg told The Verge. He also explained that for him, “the metaverse isn’t just virtual reality“, but rather a “persistent, synchronous environment where we can be together” using virtual reality, augmented reality, PC, mobile devices, and gaming consoles. Zuckerberg hopes the Metaverse will not only be “some kind of a hybrid between the social platforms that we see today, but an environment where you’re embodied in it.”


Around the same time Zuckerberg made his statements, Facebook CEO Sheryl Sandberg told the New York Times their hope is that one day, “people will host religious services in virtual reality spaces” and “use augmented reality as an educational tool to teach their children the story of their faith.”


While much is being said about the name change and the potential of what the Metaverse might be, the origin of the name comes from popular science fiction novel Snow Crash. In Snow Crash the main character, Hiro Protagonist, exists in a futuristic landscape where people hop in and out of the alternative universe made up of augmented reality and virtual reality. While Snow Crash isn’t the first or the only novel to imagine an alternative reality where humans use technology to interact with a virtual world and the physical world augmented with heads up displays, Snow Crash was the first one to use the term Metaverse. From Snow Crash:

“So Hiro’s not actually here at all. He’s in a computer-generated universe that his computer is drawing onto his goggles and pumping into his earphones. In the lingo, this imaginary place is known as the Metaverse. Hiro spends a lot of time in the Metaverse.”

Despite the utopian promises from Meta executives, there have been numerous critics of Zuckerberg’s plans to shift the public from actual reality to a simulated virtual reality. Tom Valovic at CounterPunch described the Metaverse plans in the following way:

“I want to be careful not to mince words in describing what this technology coup is really all about: nothing less than an attempt to fabricate an alternate “reality” other than the physical one we now inhabit. This new reality can be accessed, of course, only by paying customers and those in a position to afford and understand it. It is a technology designed by elites and for elites and implicitly leaves behind much of humanity in its wake.” “The metaverse appears to be part of a larger effort to implement technocratic governance and dovetails nicely with the agenda of the World Economic Forum (WEF). This organization is the official mouthpiece of the billionaire class. The first wave of transhumanism’s new invasiveness will come with so called wearable devices i.e., headbands, virtual reality glasses, body attachments, skin implants, and others. The next phase will be an attempt to physically wire our bodies into an electronic alternate reality where privacy and individual autonomy will be nonexistent.”

Valovic is correct in his estimation of the WEF vision. For the billionaire class and their puppet organizations, such as the WEF and the United Nations, the Metaverse offers up the potential to commandeer all life into digital prisons where the people can be charged for services and products in the digital realm. Also, the public will likely be fed the narrative that being in the Metaverse is better for the planet, or that there are no viruses to fear in the Metaverse. Of course, the potential for a digital virus to infect the hardware and software of the Metaverse — as well as the minds jacked in — is more than a little terrifying.


With the understanding of the true plans and intentions of those driving humanity towards the Metaverse, it’s not hard to imagine a world which reflects something akin to the 2009 Hollywood film, Surrogates. In the film, Bruce Willis plays an FBI agent investigating a death involving a surrogate, humanoid avatars that people choose to live in rather than their own bodies. While in Surrogates the avatar is an alternative physical being, in the Metaverse the avatar is a digital being. Regardless, the end result is that most people choose to live in their Surrogates rather than in their real human bodies. Is this what we will see with the Metaverse? Time will tell.


If the Technocrats have their way, we will have a physical world made up of smart cities where you will own nothing and be happy, with privacy and individuality a thing of the past. The smart cities could potentially lock people in their homes and shutdown essential services during Climate Lockdowns or flare ups of the latest COVID variant. Meanwhile, in your smart home you could ignore the problems of the physical world by wearing goggles, contact lenses, or, eventually, an implant that plugs you direct into the Metaverse.


With the people of the world safely tucked into their digital beds, the Technocrats could complete their total takeover of natural resources, the economy, and humanity itself.


Bringing the Metaverse to Life


Although Meta is seen as the driving force in the creation of The Metaverse, they are not the only company working on the vision. As CBS recently noted, there are “5 companies building our virtual reality future“. In addition to Meta, we also have Google, Microsoft, Apple, Valve, and Magic Leap contributing to this potentially dystopian nightmare.


While most of these names are well known to the average person, Magic Leap is a company with which we ought to become more familiar. It is highly likely that Magic Leap will play an outsized role in bringing the Metaverse to the corporate world, and then, they hope, to mass consumer adoption. While the company is less known to consumers, it has enough clout to pull in advisors like Neal Stephenson, the author of Snow Crash. In fact, Stephenson is the “Chief Futurist” of Magic Leap where he can now work with the tech sector to bring his Metaverse concept to life.


Magic Leap was founded in 2010 with the goal of bringing augmented reality and virtual reality to the masses. In 2017, Magic Leap launched their “mixed reality goggles” with the hopes of finally launching humanity into the Metaverse. However, as with most previous attempts — Facebook’s Occulus Rift, Google Glass, and Microsoft HoloLens — the concept has not been successful.


Magic Leap has failed to live up to expectations in the last decade and it has been reported that between late 2019 and June 2020, the company’s valuation dropped from $6.4 billion to $450 million, a loss of 93 percent. By most accounts Magic Leap was a failure.


Then, in October 2021, Magic Leap raised $500 million from an unidentified source. Magic Leap states that the investment will help the company focus on delivering “best-in-class augmented reality (AR) solutions”, including the Magic Leap 2 by 2022. Magic Leap CEO Peggy Johnson said the investment is “an important step in advancing Magic Leap’s mission to transform the way we work.”


Peggy Johnson herself is also part of the rebranding of Magic Leap. She joined the company as current CEO in August 2020 with the focus of “accelerating the company’s shift to the enterprise market” after the failure to gain consumer acceptance. Johnson has said that Magic Leap will now focus on “building a robust business across sectors ranging from healthcare and manufacturing to defense and the public sector.”


Johnson’s previous employers provide a bit of background on her experience and connections. Before joining Magic Leap she was the Executive Vice President of Business Development at Microsoft from September 2014 to August 2020. In her role at Microsoft she appears to have been one of the main people involved in Microsoft’s partnership with the ID2020 project, including being quoted on the front page of the ID2020 website.


The ID2020 project is an attempt to create digital identification for every single person on the planet. The partners of the ID2020 project include Microsoft, GAVI (funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation), and the Rockefeller Foundation. It was during Johnson’s tenure with Microsoft that a formal partnership with the ID2020 project was announced at the World Economic Forum in 2018. While making the announcement Johnson also noted, “It was last summer that Microsoft took a first step, collaborating with Accenture and Avanade on a blockchain-based identity prototype on Microsoft Azure.”


Interestingly, Peggy Johnson currently sits on the Board of Directors of BlackRock, a position she has held since March 2018. BlackRock has come under fire in the last year for real estate investments, but also for their stock in Moderna, Inc.


The fact that Johnson has experience working with the likes of Microsoft, BlackRock, the WEF, ID2020, and other major players of The Great Reset agenda is likely one of the reasons she has been chosen to help usher in The Metaverse.


Johnson’s statements in recent interviews provide a window into her own thinking around the virtual-augmented reality concept. On her LinkedIn page she recently discussed her first year as CEO of Magic Leap. “One year ago, in the midst of a global pandemic, I joined Magic Leap as CEO, inspired by the company’s vision to amplify human potential through the power of augmented reality (AR),” Johnson wrote.


Johnson goes to explain how Magic Leap plans to conquer the corporate workspace environment first, before moving onto consumer grade technology. She outlines a few of the companies Magic Leap has partnered with:

“We partnered with Ericsson to improve work floor processes on factory floors, increasing efficiency and collaboration. Ophthalmologists at Heru used our technology to develop an AR solution for eye exams, replacing a costly and cumbersome diagnostic machine with a more affordable vision diagnostic tool. And Farmers Insurance recently used Magic Leap to remotely train newly hired claim adjusters during the pandemic eliminating the need for environmentally taxing travel.”

In a February 2021 interview Johnson also payed lip service to “stakeholder capitalism“, a key component of the WEF’s Great Reset agenda. “Just cause we are a little company doesn’t mean that we can’t abide by the principles around stakeholder capitalism,” told the Leadership Next podcast.


Just days before the publishing of this article Peggy Johnson spoke at the Web Summit and revealed some more details of Magic Leap’s plans. Johnson told the audience we are already in the early stages of the Metaverse. According to Johnson, as the physical and digital worlds merge into one, people might fly less and participate in physical reality less, in general.


‘Remember when doctors didn’t use AR to operate on you?'”, Johnson claimed someone might ask. “You’re not going to want that old experience, you’re only going to want that new experience because it’s going to be so accurate and precise.”


At the Web Summit Johnson stated that, for her, the goal was to “free ourselves” from looking down at our screens, and instead have users looking up at the world around them. However, despite many supporters of the Metaverse pushing for complete immersion in the virtual and augmented reality, Johnson claimed this is not her goal. “I don’t want to live in a fully occluded world where I enter another world for hours at a time,” she stated. “I want to live in my physical world and have that world augmented for me. That’s where I think we’re going and that’s the real promise of the Metaverse.”


While Johnson herself may not intend for The Metaverse to become an all encompassing reality that supersedes physical reality, for the Zuckerbergs, Microsofts, and WEFs of the world, that is exactly what they intend for The Metaverse.


The web of Technocrats working to build this reality should be cause for alarm to any thinking mind. Meta, Microsoft, Google, Apple, the World Economic Forum, Amazon, and others are absolutely intending to bridge the gap between virtual and physical reality. The Metaverse serves their ultimate vision of dominating humanity via digital technology and erasing privacy and individuality.


The only thing standing in the way of this technocratic dystopia are the free hearts and minds of the world. We must reject this effort and instead strive to reconnect to the physical world around us. While the technocrats have attempted to use COVID-19 as a method to sever human connection so that we might crave something akin to The Metaverse, we ought to push past this propaganda and reconnect to our fellow humans and the abundant natural world. Now is the time to fight for our humanity before the Predator Class completely abolishes our physical connection to each other and the planet.
