The Modern Masters Organization
Modern Masters is the organization behind the world’s first Meta-Reality experience.
The MM22 Meta-Reality experience is a mystical platform for co-creative spiritual learning, teaching, production and action. For more on the Meta-Reality Experience, please see our features page.
Values and Goals
- Our primary value is to support and uphold respect for and enhancement of individual autonomy.
- Our users come first. We respect your privacy.
- To support these values, we provide tools and education in order to empower our members and enhance their own skills, especially the skill of discernment.
- We will never require members to perform harmful or dangerous acts in order to progress in our system.
- While our platform is based on the assumption that some kind of non-material realm exists, Modern Masters will never say or imply that we hold privileged access to the truth or to spiritual enlightenment.
What Will You Do in Modern Masters?
Our platform is built on three pillars: personal growth through imaginative exercises, community building, and gameplay. While your involvement with each of these pillars is required to some degree, you can choose how much to pursue any one direction.
You may be looking for a new kind of game. In your case, Modern Masters provides an immersive experience that may include solving puzzles to unlock mysterious transmissions sent from another dimension. If you’re hoping to create meaningful connections, you may engage in real-world expeditions with groups of all sizes. For those of you seeking empowerment, you may go on a vision quest to find your spirit animal. No matter which direction you chose to emphasize, there are messages, quests, and opportunities designed to provide balance with the other pillars. These three pillars are tightly integrated in order to provide a seamless experience while interacting with different parts of the system.
Personal and Spiritual Growth
Though our platform is based on the assumption that some kind of non-material realm exists, Modern Masters will never say or imply that we hold privileged access to the truth or to spiritual enlightenment. While we offer a unique magical system, it reflects only one path. Our goal is to empower you to find truth for yourself, and we provide a platform to assist you in your search. Your journey moves at a pace specific to you, and challenges leading to self-mastery are dynamically provided based on your readiness and acceptance.
Individual and Group Play
Our creative team draws inspiration from movies, books, games, and art projects. Modern Masters incorporates elements from a large range of adventure and role-playing games from Dungeons and Dragons to World of Warcraft. These include extensive character creation, reward mechanics, and questing. Lessons from virtual worlds such as Second Life show up as online meeting spaces and collaborative dynamics. Eve Online shows how to build communities around a marketplace of ideas and how to create an alternative currency. Alternate-reality games (ARGs) like The Tension Experience and Jejune Institute exemplify storylines that lead to real-world experiences. Simulation and tactical games like The Sims, Starcraft and Civilization provide mechanics for developing strategic thinking and challenge players to find creative solutions to problems. We’ve taken great care to weave all these elements into the Modern Masters experience.
Community Driven Evolution
The participants of Modern Masters not only create real change for themselves and their communities but can be collaborators in the platform as a whole. In fact, the system is designed to evolve with the input of our membership based on established models from open-source knowledge projects, such as Wikipedia and Debian. Other modes of collaboration may include creative writing, developing lore, art and graphic design, puzzle-crafting, and more. Modern Masters is a platform built for and by our users. We encourage members to propose creative ways to expand our mission and reach our goals.
Modern Masters is a platform designed to empower individuals and organizations through meaningful learning, open-source collaboration, and entertaining engagement. To achieve our goals, we’ve designed a unique structural framework through which individuals and groups can work synergistically to bring their dreams to fruition. Our vision is to foster real-world change through uniting people with like-minded associates as we simultaneously construct creative ways to encourage and inspire personal growth.
The following are some of the issues we plan to address through our platform:
Privacy and Security
The system we’re a part of is failing us in many ways. We want to fix it. Legitimate privacy concerns are beginning to make their way into the mainstream. Our platform is built to keep your information private, and we provide knowledge and tools to protect your information.
Power and Knowledge
Access to knowledge is becoming increasingly controlled by a decreasing number of organizations. Throughout the world we see revolutions and discontent all centered around the idea that too much power is in the hands of a select few. Modern Masters is designed to put power back into the hands of the people by providing a place for people to teach and learn from each other.
Now that we’re firmly implanted in the digital age, too many of our experiences and social connections are shallow and crafted by someone else. We’re giving up our access to meaningful lives and authentic social interactions. We want to help people find this meaning again and fulfill their life’s purpose. Within Modern Masters you’ll meet people like you and form new alliances. You’ll gain help with your projects and passions and contribute to causes you care about.
Hidden History and Science
Too often our thoughts and beliefs are formed by those in power who run massive propaganda machines like the mainstream media. We’re beginning to discover that science and our academic institutions are not the bastions of truth they make themselves out to be. Significant credible research into phenomena such as UFOs, free energy, consciousness, healing, prayer and ESP have been suppressed by those in power. We know now that valuable beliefs and practices of indigenous peoples have been discredited, leading to the loss of our mystical nature. We want to help humanity reconnect to that lost magic in themselves, in nature, and in the spiritual world.
Our platform seeks to integrate the power of scientific methods and individual experience with the mystery and magic of the unseen world, allowing members to challenge their paradigms and reach their own conclusions.
We created Modern Masters to provide solutions to all of these issues, and to create the future we all deserve. The time is now to act together to take back our world.
The Modern Masters organization is crafted with care to ensure its integrity. Both as a self-sustaining, complete system, and as a platform that carries meaning and sacredness.
Modern Masters is incorporated as a Public Benefit Corporation. Fundamental to this structure is the idea of the triple bottom line: people, planet, profit. Through our work, we seek to provide substantial benefits to individuals, communities, and our global society. We believe active, responsible stewardship of our environment is at the core of providing these services.
Complementary to this structural framework are certain bylaws and regulations that bind us to uphold the practices of transparency, regular examination of the power structure—including improvement when determined appropriate by our community, open-source collaboration, and equal access and rights for all active members in good standing.
We seek to create a synergistic collaborative community where all members feel respected and safe. We believe the most effective way of doing this is to educate individuals, provide meaningful experiences that bring magic, beauty, and wonder into the world. At the same time, we provide a structure infused with integrity for individuals to exercise their power.
