Metaverse is the term made from two words meta+verse where the word meta means beyond
and verse is the word derived from universe which as a whole makes the sense as beyond the
universe. This is the virtual world or the virtual universe which can be experienced exactly at the
same time and endlessly by effective unlimited number of users with an indivisual sense of
presence. Virtual means which is not seen in our real or day to day life which can only be seen
at the computer and mobile phones. As an example we can take the meeting we attended by
joining through computers or mobile phones which is called virtual meeting where as class
taken is called virtual class. Similarly the metaverse is known as something called virtual
universe which doesnot have any physical or real existance which can only be seen in our mbl
phones screen or computer screen.
