Meta is the game behind the game. My introduction to The Meta was in the world of video games, specifically Bungie’s wildly successful but just as wildly debated game Destiny. People argue about every aspect Destiny, but one central topic showed up a lot: the balance of weapons available. This is the meta game: Which weapon should I use? What character should I play as? In a different context, like running, the meta changes shape but it’s still there; how often do you run, do you run alone, do you run fast or slow, do you run the same amount every week?
There’s meta everywhere, and I want to find it. But I also want to share it. The meta game is only fun when everyone is playing. So ask yourself: what is the meta?
