Metaworlds seem new again. A view of Mars Rover’s view on day 2, minecraft, healthcare.


I started writing ten years ago, when Spirit and Opportunity started their voyage to Mars, how much of value-creation comes from meta worlds we create where we can experiment and understand the real world and make predictions at low cost. I’ll dig it out and post it again here shortly.

Well, now even better, we can have a virtual trip to Mars.

We’re also starting to be able to predict some very interesting things with these metaworlds and algorithms, like, where weapons are stashed and public opinion more accurate than polls.

We’ll soon be developing virtual or meta worlds in medicine. Might they look like minecraft?
