Indonesia is known as a country rich in cultural treasures of the past. Many traces have been left by the predecessors of this country in various forms such as inscriptions, books, literature, artifacts, structures, buildings, etc. The condition of the relics is intact, half intact, fragments or missing altogether. Many manuscripts were written in lontar, in stone and in copper using the ancient Javanese language and in the form of symbols. One of the Dutch scientists J.L. Brandes, “Een Jayapatra of Acte vanEene Rechterlijke uitspraak van Saka 849”, TBG 32/1889 states that since the X century Indonesia has had at least 10 original civilizations, namely: a) Wayang b) Gamelan c) Tembang d) Batik e) Technology metal f) Currency system g) Shipping (maritime) h) Astronomy i) Irrigation j) Bureaucratic system.

In fact, the existence of these cultural relics scattered throughout the archipelago is in a very poor condition and very vulnerable to damage. Reconstruction and digitization of all ancient relics will save and at the same time can be read by all generations of society today and in the future and can be developed into a metaverse.

Now comes the metaverse that was first created by Neal Stephenson in his 1992 science fiction novel Snow Crash and depicts a first-person virtual reality experience. Today, 30 years later, the Metaverse has become (almost) a reality. Mark Zuckerberg described the experience, in his recent announcement of Facebook’s intention to create an embodied Internet, as a place “where you are in the experience, not just seeing it Elliot Mizroch, CEO of Virtual Worlds: “At Virtual Worlds, we’re bringing the world’s most important artifacts and monuments to a new digital ecosystem, preserving them for future generations and making them accessible to the world in ways they’ve never been before. in our digital future.”
