I'm a Nebulan. What an awesome modern spiritual movement for the Gen Z. No gimmicks, no rules, no commitment and no conditions. Wow! Totally rocks. I love it.
Generation ZGen Z are born in a digital age, this generation has the most technologically-saturated lifestyle. They believe in fabricating their own destiny. Their independence and competitiveness aid them in striving for greatness while relying on themselves. They have reservations about religion and beliefs. They cherish their freedom and individuality.
What would be the values and ethics of a generation whose chapters of life are recorded in the digital world rather than human society? How would the avatars in the Metaverse practice religion or try to sync with the intrinsic qualities of this vibrant and dynamic Universe? How would the future assess the creative faculties of great masters like Leonardo Do Vinci, Rembrandt, Ludwig van Beethoven or Frederic Chopin?
We must find answers to such bewildering questions. We are responsible for the world we live in today and the world we create for tomorrow. Each moment of our present is precious, holds the seed of a fantastic future.
Digital GenerationThe GenZ were born in a world with all Information at their disposal, seeking better lifestyle through internet connectivity and in a society that grew conducive to individualistic way of life. These post millennials were born into the Era of the internet, unlike the Gen Y who made an interesting journey through the pre-internet Era before gliding into the digital world of today.
To understand this generation, we resort to utter the words of Kahlil Gibran in “The Prophet”, on Children:
Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday….
GenZ reads, communicates, interacts and entertains through digital devices - a way of life completely unknown to the prior generations yet their world is a result of the technological development from the past generations. Today, we are heading towards the Metaverse, because our GenZ is prepared for a global culture where they can share space and interact with Avatars of their friends, colleagues and relations.
A computer simulated world would indeed be a fantastic future to reckon with!
