Popular metaverse Somnium Space just made an interesting announcement, called the “live forever” mode. The idea is that Somnium Space will enable users to interact with their loved ones in its metaverse after they pass away.
Artificial intelligence (AI) technology has advanced to the point where we can train an AI to be a virtual representation of anyone. It’s possible to do this by training an AI with information about an individual from the past.
Pictures, videos, voice recordings, writing samples, and social media posts – we can use all of them to train the AI to “embody” an individual within a metaverse. A digital avatar can be created that looks, talks, and moves just like a real person.
Somnium’s CEO Artur Sychov said the goal here is to produce an AI that’s so lifelike that family members would not discern a difference between the AI and their loved one for at least 10 minutes. This could allow people to regularly interact inside of this metaverse with loved ones who have passed on.
In a fallen world that rejects the offer of eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord, it is understandable that people would want to act as if their loved ones had not died. This world is all they have and they will seek any and all possible ways to hang on to life.
“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:13
Virtual replicas now exist. As previously posted, Facebook has changed its name to Meta in recognition that the future is in the virtual universe. In the video below, Nelson reveals that China has already shown they have used a replica newsreader for seven months. Think about that for a moment, they (those in control) can create a replica of you and have you say whatever they want.
“It (False Prophet) deceives those who dwell on earth, telling them to make an image for the beast that was wounded by the sword and yet lived. And it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might even speak and might cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain.”
Could this be what John is referring to when he talks of the False Prophet making an image of the beast, a virtual image that can speak just as the replica newsreader did?
What about the following verse; until the technology of today – smartphones, how could people from all over the earth see the dead bodies of the two witnesses lying in a street in Jerusalem? It must have been a mystery to John. Although his whole Revelation experience must have been mind blowing.
“And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.” Revelation 11:9
Same with Daniel: the following end times words he was given truly describe the time we are living in now particularly “knowledge shall be increased“.
Daniel,shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end:many shall run to and fro, andknowledge shall be increased.Daniel 12:4
End times Biblical prophecy is unfolding in our time like never before. Are you prepared for Jesus return? The second last book of the Bible, Jude, tells us what we need to be doing in the last days before Jesus returns. Check it out.
Fight! Contend! Do battle! When apostasy arises, when false teachers emerge, when the truth of God is attacked it is time to fight for the faith. Only believers who are spiritually “in shape” can answer the summons.
Meta-Morphosis: The dramatic change you aren’t seeing. This change is happening slowly every day, piece by piece. To us, living today, it’s almost invisible. We aren’t noticing it. But you can be sure that it’s a metamorphosis — a complete change into something totally different.
It started with computers, then the internet, laptops, mobile phones, smartphones, Myspace, Facebook, virtual reality, augmented reality, cloud storage, cryptocurrencies, non-fungible tokens, Sandbox, Decentraland…
It’s accelerating faster and faster.
We are transforming our reality from tangible, to virtually tangible. A world that is virtual, connected, and fully immersive in the cloud. And our lives will never be the same again…
You’ve likely heard the term metaverse — but you might not know exactly what it means. Well, that’s OK, because neither does anyone else! Everyone has their own idea of how it will evolve.
At the core of the metaverse is a blending of our physical world with the online world. The NFT tokens website describes it this way. “The Metaverse” is an all-encompassing term used to describe “a universe where we spend our lives inside that thing eternally”.
Or in the words of Mark Zuckerberg:
The defining quality of the metaverse will be a feeling of presence — like you are right there with another person or in another place. Feeling truly present with another person is the ultimate dream of social technology.
‘In this future, you will be able to teleport instantly as a hologram to be at the office without a commute, at a concert with friends, or in your parents’ living room to catch up.’
Meta is much bigger than a name change. This signals a major pivot of the Facebook business. It also tells us what may well be the next big tech revolution: The Metaverse.’
It won’t be a specific place because it will be all around us. It will change the way we shop, work, socialise, and seek entertainment.
It’s gained a lot of attention since Mark Zuckerberg announced that Facebook was changing to Meta Platforms on 28 October 2021. This prompted a whole lot of people to start searching the word ‘metaverse’ as the Google Trend Charts demonstrate.
From a Christian and end-times perspective, metaverse (virtual reality) is the culmination of how Satan is using technology to take young people, in particular, away from God and His values. A further demonstration if you needed one that we are living in the prophesied “last days” before Jesus returns, first to rapture His Saints, second to pour out His wrath upon an unrepentant world, and finally to return with the glorified Saints to rule and reign with a rod of iron on this earth for one thousand years. As the following Isaiah prophecy shows, God the Father and Jesus have unfinished business to fulfill with Jerusalem and His nation Israel.
“For Zion’s sake, I will not keep silent, and for Jerusalem’s sake, I will not be quiet, until her righteousness goes forth as brightness and her salvation as a burning torch. The nations shall see your righteousness, and all the kings your glory, and you shall be called by a new name that the mouth of the Lord will give. You shall be a crown of beauty in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God. You shall no more be termed Forsaken, and your land shall no more be termed Desolate, but you shall be called My Delight Is in Her, and your land Married; for the Lord delights in you, and your land shall be married.” Isaiah 62:1-4
In a single day, Facebook was renamed, but Meta is much more than a name. Zuckerberg may create the metaverse but the Antichrist will use it. Why is the metaverse going to be more addictive than social media and why will it lead to the Mark of the Beast and the Image of the Beast? Watch this Last Days Breaking News episode with Nelson Walters to discover the hidden dangers of this new technology.
Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, “has long imagined a virtual world where people work, play and interact.” Virtual offices can be entered and you can interact with a computer. Zuckerberg, with billions of dollars and a massive Facebook audience, is investing in a future unlike any present version of social media or video gaming. A recent Wall Street Journal article said, “The metaverse represents a digital reality where people playing through avatars would be able to attend concerts with friends or try on clothes in stores, just as they would offline out in the real world.”
A person would access this online world as an avatar, a digital version of oneself. You could attend a concert with another “avatar friend,” go shopping and try on clothes and then go to work as well. All of this is done in an immersive experience using ocular technology already developed. I will leave it to your imagination as to what other activities one could engage in within this digitally contrived world and what impact it will have on our children.
