immaterial

Having no material body or form. [Answers.com]

This is a reductionist definition when applied to a virtual environment like a metaverse, where referring to something as immaterial is logically, a tautology. But I use it both in reference and in opposition to my use of the term material. It’s a reference because I think the substance of which something is fabricated can possess immaterial elements (like ideas, forces, tension etc..); and, it’s in opposition because of my insistence on using metaverse environments together with real one’s, in a way that one augments the other, and visa-versa.
