Pursuing a metaverse worth living in

What matters

to humans?

Humans are natural escapists. For millennia, we have created art, composed music, and written stories to immerse ourselves in. We have always indulged in the idea of being anywhere but where we are. We are naturally inquisitive and always like to explore new things and new places. Therefore, it is no wonder that stories, movies, and now video games are at the forefront of modern societies.

It would seem that escapism is naturally human. As such, something like XR (virtual and augmented reality) and the concept of metaverse that they enable will be exceptionally meaningful to us. The impact will be such that the way we think and live will be forever changed, as it has with every technological revolution.

How do we manifest

this dream?

We spend the majority of our lives immersed in the physical world, but the dreams we have are significantly larger than the lives we all currently live. We always lust for something more, something greater.

There is no conceivable way that central groups and authorities could fulfill the needs of everyone. Bureaucracy at mass scale always fails to accommodate the individual. As such, individuals are lumped into generalized groups in order to have any hope of being catered to. However, the needs of a group, at best, only overlap sometimes with someone but never fully address the needs of an individual.

So, what is the solution? Give power back to the people: the individual users.

People work hard to create worlds and develop them. However, building worlds with traditional tools and architecture will not be enough. The key is to continually increase the value that is created from the same amount of work.

It is therefore necessary to create tools that are more powerful while also easier to use. In the time that it takes to model furniture, one should be able to model a village. In the time it takes to program a car, one should be able to program a city.

What secures

our future?

Decentralization is at the center of all Vircadia’s software pursuits. We summarize everything to ask the question: how can we spread the responsibility of virtuality across the largest number of individuals possible?

The number of creators for worlds and content in the metaverse needs to trend towards infinity instead of one. Instead of dozens of large studios, we should see tens of millions of individual creators serving billions of people pursuing lives in virtuality. This will secure the right of existence for every human being therein.

To achieve this, a foundational software project should fulfill these criteria:

    • FLOSS – open-source licensing must be free without restrictive conditions.
    • Decentralized – through federation and/or blockchain.
    • Always-connected systems – but always optional.
    • Scalable architecture – for worlds and the life within.

Vircadia seeks to be one such foundationAL software project of virtuality.
