Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg has gone all-in on the dystopian concept of The Metaverse, a VR product that the general public seems largely uninterested in. Presumably in fear of the future technology, an anti-Metaverse terrorist has executed a horrific attack on a University VR Lab.
Anti-Metaverse Terrorist attacks University
Reported by CNN, a bomb was sent to Northeastern University, Massachusetts in protest of Mark Zuckerberg’s Metaverse.
Hidden inside a small package, the explosive went off after being opened by a 45-year-old member of staff. Currently, there is no knowledge of how the package arrived on the university campus.
Federal investigators claim that the bomb did come with a manifesto from an anti-Metaverse terrorist. The manifesto reportedly discusses the university’s relationship with Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, the University VR Lab and more.
Furthermore, the bomb was delivered to the campus’ VR Lab. The note was sealed in a plastic container which, when opened, caused injuries to a member of staff. However, the note is reportedly still readable.
The manifesto of this anti-Metaverse terrorist has not been released online, and the perpetrator is still at large. However, a large number of resources have been allocated to find the attacker.
Afraid of something that doesn’t exist
The attack by this anti-Metaverse terrorist is fighting against a product that doesn’t get exist. While plans for The Metaverse are dystopian, the technology is currently decades away from affecting humankind.
Facebook, now Meta, has seen heavy backlash from the general public regarding its Metaverse. Furthermore, the company is losing billions every quarter on the virtual world’s development.
However, this bombing isn’t the fault of Meta, not at all. Instead, this is the result of an angry or scared individual.
Following the attack, the FBI has teamed up with the Joint Terrorism Task Force and other units to find the perpetrator. No suspects have been found at the time of writing.
