With the online-everything transformation and mass digital adoption of remote work and online social activities accelerated by the global Covid-19 pandemic, we may find ourselves on the verge of something big and potentially paradigm-shifting: The Metaverse - the precursor of the future Multiverse. The Metaverse and Multiverse have in common that they aim at realizing the fusion of digital and real worlds across all dimensions created and delivered by non-traditional converged service platforms of future 6G and Next G networks, where developers do not hesitate to use technologies from as many disciplines as possible. The range of disciplines that must come together to build a deeper Metaverse involve not only communications and computer science but also cognitive science, neuroscience, social sciences, psychology, and behavioral economics.

This book will be instrumental in helping the reader find and overcome some of the most common 6G and Next G blind spots. It points to three spheres of contexts, each with a different narrative for the year 2030 and beyond, to help better understand the potential benefits and risks of the Metaverse and Multiverse. Further, the book weaves emerging themes carefully together in 6G and Next G networks, underpinned by decentralized Web3 technology in support of the future token economy, the successor of today's platform economy, where anyone's contribution is compensated with tokens whose different types and roles are still in the very early stages of research.

Wearable devices will become common place, enabling future communication technologies that fold into our physical and biological environments. Human transformation will be realized through unifying experiences across the physical, biological, and digital worlds. New virtual worlds will be blended with the digital twin world to create a mixed-reality world that enables new superhuman capabilities, leveraging on the collective intelligence of all humans combined with the collective behavior of all machines, plus the intelligence of nature, plus whatever behavior emerges from this global matrix.


隨著全球 Covid-19 疫情加速了線上一切轉型和遠程工作以及線上社交活動的大規模數字化採用,我們可能正處於一個重大且具有潛在改變範式的時刻:元宇宙(Metaverse)- 未來多元宇宙(Multiverse)的前身。元宇宙和多元宇宙的共同目標是實現由未來6G和Next G網絡的非傳統融合服務平台創建和提供的跨越所有維度的數字和現實世界的融合,開發人員在這裡毫不猶豫地使用來自盡可能多學科的技術。構建更深層次元宇宙所需的學科範圍不僅涉及通信和計算機科學,還包括認知科學、神經科學、社會科學、心理學和行為經濟學。

本書將有助於幫助讀者找到並克服一些最常見的6G和Next G的盲點。它指出了三個不同的情境領域,每個領域對於2030年及以後的時間有不同的敘述,以幫助更好地理解元宇宙和多元宇宙的潛在益處和風險。此外,本書將6G和Next G網絡中的新興主題巧妙地結合在一起,以去中心化的Web3技術支持未來的代幣經濟,這是今天平台經濟的繼任者,其中任何人的貢獻都將以代幣償付,而這些代幣的不同類型和角色仍處於研究的初期階段。
