Hi Everyone,

In cosmology, there is a theory that our universe is made of multiverses, multiple universes existing together.

Austrian theoretical physicist Erwin Schrödinger, in a lecture in 1952, said that his equations seemed to describe several different histories; these were "not alternatives, but all really happen simultaneously."

In (or on) the internet, we have the Metaverse, and Mark Zuckerberg appears to want to own it. He has renamed Facebook's parent company to Meta Platforms, Inc or Meta for short. The real question is, "What is the metaverse?" Basically, it's a virtual reality or augmented reality, and this month I thought we could explore the concept and see if we could use this idea.

I have also found some alternatives to PhotoShop — some we know and some new ones to me anyway. So we will have a look at those.

It's our last meeting for the year, and we should look at what we could do next year.

Here are the Zoom meeting details;
