  1. disrupt the ostensible but wrong-headed efforts to find connections between real world architectural practices and the conception of virtual world space from Metaverse, the media (I think that it is a logical, intellectual and sensible contridication to try to connect the two);
  2. construct a platform from which inworld physical and social patterns can generate the symbology of immaterial architecture; and,
  3. lay the foundations from which a unique expressive media can emerge from the collective intelligence of social platforms whose material is 3-D space.

…then its logical line of questioning, when sensing a real world example of radical materiality such as HypoSurface is: How can it form and inform the conception of inworld space and help provoke the emergence of a singular expressive language?
