metaverse : The Real Time 3-D Virtual Internet, or Metaverse as Stephenson dubs it, the evolution of a virtual reality based Internet.

An electronic representation of a real world environment, populated by real people and programs (known as bots or deamons).

territories : the domain of property and ownership; no territorialization without a vector of leaving the territory, deterritorialization, and there’s no leaving the territory, no deterritorialization, without a vector of reterritorialization elsewhere.

These are the three determinants of art: colors, lines, song – art in its pure state. [Overview of “The ABC’s of Gilles Deleuze” prepared by Charles J. Stivale]
