Zuckerberg could use Metaverse to brainwash world’s population
    Expert warns

    SOCIETY - 02 July 2022 - 06:29

    Brian Shuster, who has 17 years of experience with the metaverse and also created his own digital world called Utherverse, spoke about how people can misuse the metaverse for their own benefit.

    “It could be used to brainwash whole populations and basically put them under the control of the puppet master,” Shuster said in a phone interview with The Daily Mail.

    “I don't believe Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will ever come to the conclusion he can sacrifice money for the benefit and longevity of humans. The money comes when people are happy or angry, [so you choose] which path you [want to] go down? We've seen the path Facebook has chosen, and they will choose the same path when it comes to the metaverse,” he noted.

    He stressed that the metaverse is in the wrong hands, has the potential to be the most dangerous technology since the invention of nuclear weapons - and those hands likely belong to Zuckerberg.

    Zuckerberg once described the metaverse as “the successor to the mobile internet”, is a set of virtual spaces where you can game, work and communicate with other people who are not in the same physical space as you.

    “The idea is that we will spend more time in the virtual world than the real world, a time when we wake up, put on the headset and stay there for more time than we spend with the headset off - interacting, shopping, going on dates, working and going to school in the virtual world.”

    The Meta CEO has also made claims that humanity will eventually move into his metaverse, leaving their reality behind for a new world that they control.

    “Nothing is random. Everything is algorithmically generated by computers and we've seen what Facebook does with algorithms. You may think you met the love of your life in the metaverse, but this is Zuck deciding who you are matched with,” Utherverse founder stressed.

    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been a leading voice on the concept, which is seen as the future of the internet and would blur the lines between the physical world and the digital one.
