Abstract

With the continuous progress of virtual reality technology, human beings have begun to move toward the Metaverse world, which is the ultimate form of Internet development. The Metaverse becomes the hot topic of the moment. The concept of the Metaverse has not yet formed a unified definition, but as an advanced form of cyberspace, the Metaverse has its prominent feature, namely “full-body immersion”. The full-body immersive experience of Metaverse makes it naturally “addictive”. While bringing “compensation” to reality for its users, will inevitably lead to the risk of addiction. In the development process of the Metaverse, especially in the early stage of development, special attention should be paid to various problems that may be caused by the risk of addiction, and dialectically look at the relationship between the virtual world and the real world.
