Good stories are one of the best ways to engage people, and in our case, our learners.
Therefore, as you might have noticed, at INGAGE, we enjoy good story-telling and always keep an eye for films that deal with at least one of our 3 core topics: 1) Education, 2) Insurance and 3) Technology.
Indeed, they are the 3 “pillars” that support our niche offering of “Effective Training for Insurance Professionals” based on cutting-edge technologies!
In this case, the present film is about technology, more precisely, the Metaverse / virtual world, as this is where we conduct some of our training.
What is the story about?
Greg Daniels‘ series presents an interesting mix of technologies, including metaverse, virtual world and even the Hyperloop.
A man is able to choose his own afterlife after his untimely death, by having his consciousness uploaded into a virtual world. As he gets used to his new life and befriends his angel (real world handler), questions about his death arise.

A quick note…
In this series, the corporation behind the Metaverse is called Horizen and at some point one of the main characters says something like “Don’t be evil”.
I guess that these are pure coincidences, right? 😉
