metaverse (plural metaverses)

  1. A set of universes, or the composite of all universes.
    • 2003, Ervin Laszlo, The Connectivity Hypothesis, page 108:
      A single-cycle universe comes to eternal rest. But further instabilities in the virtual energy domain may occur, and some of these may be potent enough to create new universes. The thesis of a metaverse giving rise to local universes is cogent, []
  2. A hypothetical future (counterpart or continuation of the) Internet, created by the convergence of virtually enhanced physical reality and physically persistent virtual space.
