The Ontological Aspects of Puzzles into Metaverses

Cristiano Natal Tonéis, Luís Carlos Petry


The present text talks about the substantiation and usage of logic-mathematical puzzles inside the metaverses and its incidences as cognitive objects. Starting from the evolving path of hypermedia to the metaverses, it is introduced some formal criteria to reflect on the interactive context of the metaverses exemplified in the presentation and solution of logic-mathematical puzzles, taking as a paradigm example the metaverse experience of Myst online. It is concluded by the importance of the collaboration between the digital narrative and interactive problematical formulation for the research, production, knowledge and teaching-learning processes.
