The meta Buddha is present, in this moment, sitting peacefully on a plane orthogonal to human reality. The meta Buddha springs from the internal reflections of meditators, arising as an ideal, and rests in their aspirations. The meta Buddha takes no action, gives no teachings, and does not pilgrimage or ask for alms.

The form of the meta Buddha is constantly shifting, influenced by culture and practice. The meta Buddha is made of many parts; the newer ones appearing to be more sharply defined, segmented by use, almost measurable, used like tokens, traded on the internet, and turned into memes.

Meta Buddha is fought over, colonized, and commodified. These machinations tell the story.
