Perspective | an article by Jerald Kasimov


It’s all in the eye of the beholder. What is normal? What does upside down mean or its corollary—right side up? Left or right? In reference to what? … the observer or the creator?

So, what’s the Metaverse? It’s that strange place that exists somewhere—but where? I’ll bet my 11-year-old granddaughter, Chloe, can tell you; she has her own avatar.

Are we all avatars in someone else’s Metaverse? How do we know the answer? If we’re on a moving train—we are standing still in relation to the passengers but watching the world speed by. Who’s moving?

In the picture of the tree, which way is up, down, left, or right? What if you’re standing on your head or lying down?

Creative writing and art have identical truths. The first rule is there are no rules … none. It’s all perspective baby!

Here’s some perspective: my book Altered State of Affairs is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and at most Indie Bookstores.
