Too Long; Didn't Read
VR/AR (virtual reality / augmented reality) technologies could help us in some ways. However, they also could pose a threat to humanity. Metaverse is the environment that our brain was not designed for. Surrounding ourselves with VR/AR may lead to degradation of what makes us human.
In this post, I'd like to focus on the potential dangers of VR/AR for humanity, if they are used inappropriately. Before introducing VR/AR technologies into our real life, it is important to conduct extensive research on the potential impact they could have on human values and behavior.
It can turn us into irrational and immoral slaves incapable of setting and achieving long-term goals and moving our civilization into the bright future.
