According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, "meta" is a prefix (a word put before another) that means after, beyond or "more highly organized or specialized form".

And according to Facebook, the "metaverse" is the concept of a virtual world that anyone is able to access anything in, allowing people to interact and work beyond reality.

It's getting weird.
