Podcast Topic: “Metawar”, a term Winn coined to describe the art and science of reality distortion and addiction in the metaverse. Increasingly impressive immersive technologies, active metacontent orchestration, and powerful feedback systems (OODA loops) will amplify disinformation through believable simulations and the powerful addictive effects of reward-based virtual existences. At some distant date, the metapoint will be reached, where persistent immersive simulations will be indistinguishable from our default ‘reality’. Just with current and short-term technological capabilities, the security, privacy, ethics, and global policy implications are staggering.
