The notion of a 'metaverse' alludes to a network of 3D virtual realities, with an emphasis on social engagement mediated through virtual space and augmented reality. Powerful interests are advocating for the development of metaverse(s), but the relegation of the human to a collective dematerialized ether has been met with severe criticisms. The aim of this paper, then, is to examine the question of metaverse across a wider canvas.
