But what do you think? In what ways do you think we’ll end up using technologies like VR, AR, BCI? In trying to create an AI, are we really trying to create a god? Will the Metaverse ever become a reality?

    I’ll be honest, a lot of this scared me somewhat. Maybe it’s the tone of the podcast, with the heartbeats and whatnot. And yet, a lot of this fills me with joy. I don’t know how much will actually happen, but it’s exciting, in a “bungie jump off a bridge” way. Like your stomach is fallout from under you right before a fall.

    Great job!
