metaverbum is an answer to Mark Zuckerberg's Metaverse and the disorientation of many people. metaverbum refers to what is beyond the word: MEANING, SENSE & SUBSTANCE. metaverbum is inspired by the philosopher Charles Taylor and his study The Language Animal. metaverbum wants to create a new consciousness – through language. metaverbum is planning various formats to emphasise the importance of language as a medium of reflection and creation.
 For people who want to grow personally, linguistically and as a society.


What we do with words and what words do with us

The name metaverbum was created shortly after the presentation of Mark Zuckerberg's Metaverse. I say the NAME because there was no concept, no goal, no success story in my mind that wanted to be written. The name metaverbum then became an idea that gradually began to take shape and is now growing steadily. metaverbum sees itself as a work in progress or let's call it: WORD in progress.

The development of metaverbum exemplifies what language is besides naming and describing, besides communication and explanation: intuitive expression, intuitive utterance, words that intuitively reflect our inner being and, once uttered, affect us. It's not only us doing things with words – our words also do something with us.

metaverbum is about the continuous growth of our linguistic capacity and articulacy, which constantly changes our view of ourselves and the world. The larger our vocabulary becomes for our experiencing, the more differentiated we can assign what we perceive. metaverbum wants to extend and refine our linguistic awareness and our perception because we continuously grasp and shape our world through language.

metaverbum is inspired by the philosopher Charles Taylor and his study The Language Animal. Taylor emphasizes the transformative dimension of language, confirming what I have observed in my writing and conversations for over thirty years. metaverbum is also based on theoretical approaches of Paul Watzlawick, John L. Austin and Karl Bühler.

metaverbum will pay special attention to interdisciplinary and intergenerational exchange. Especially artists will be given a voice.

«Language is a key when facing changes and challenges. It's my clients who encourage me to start with metaverbum – THE POWER OF WORDS. It is my goal, to establish metaverbum as «School of a new linguistic awareness» in a wider context.»
