About

Welcome to my Patreon page! Below is an introduction to WHO I am, WHY I’m creating, WHAT you get, and HOW you can be involved!




I’m  Michael Gaio, a transdisciplinary philosopher, transformative technologist, and transmedia artist. I’m here to help you explore, navigate, and integrate our complex and rapid transition into a new planetary culture. Operating from the intersection of philosophy & psychology, science & technology, and art & design, I focus my research and creativity to inform, involve, and inspire you as we pioneer new frontiers in culture, communications, and consciousness.

I once crossed digital frontiers as an early pioneer of the information age. Now I’m crossing new frontiers into the inspiration age.

We live in an extraordinary time of rapidly increasing complexity and profound global change. We are pushed by necessity and pulled by opportunity. The push is a growing systems crisis, evident in the breakdown of financial institutions, climate disruption, resource depletion, unsustainable populations, and more. The pull is the opportunity to rise to a new level of human maturity, collective coordination, and freedom. The combined push and pull at a global scale makes this a time of profound turning and transformation for humanity.

We live in an extraordinary time of rapidly increasing complexity and profound global change. We are pushed by necessity and pulled by opportunity.



The next few decades will be a pivot point in the history of humanity. Amidst the crises, there is an opportunity for a planetary renaissance ("rebirth") of wide-ranging creative transformation across many sectors of society. How we coordinate together will be key to realizing a better future.

The global crises– ecological, sociological, and economic–are rooted in a fundamental existential crisis of psychology, perspective, and meaning. If we can't make sense of the complex world we live in, then how can we know which actions to take, what values to align with, and how to coordinate as a collective? To resolve this crisis of meaning is a meta-solution for global systemic change, sustainability, and thrivability.

As we orient and navigate our complex world, our lives, and ourselves, we can realize new meaning, increase collective intelligence, and actualize our greatest potentials as human beings.

My work explores and articulates ideas and tools to catalyze greater value, meaning, and inspiration in people’s lives.


My work explores and articulates ideas and tools to catalyze greater value, meaning, and inspiration in people's lives.  As a facilitator of this global transition, I explore complex territories, create maps of meaning, instruments of orientation, ways of navigation, visions of clear perspective, systems of innovation, and acts of inspiration. My aim is to co-create more easeful transition experiences for as many people as possible.



I create content in more than one way. My life’s work is a transdisciplinary and integrative synthesis that begins in the deepest questions of philosophy & psychology, flows through the precision of science & technology, and blossoms in the expression of art & design. Overall, I’m delivering a Transdisciplinary Transmedia Transmission: an opus of interrelated work that spans multiple topics, mediums, and channels of articulation: Word-Art, Image-Art, Audio/Video-Art, and Interactive-Art.

As a supporting patron, you will receive access to these artifacts (and more):



Personalized Star Badges: as a patron, you will receive a unique personalized Star Badge to post, share, print or do whatever you like with:


Hyper-Flyers: I invented the Hyper-Flyer in 1998: a 3-dimensional print flyer. Now all supporting patrons will receive an interactive tetrahedral Hyper-Flyer PDF to print on any colored paper, cut, paste, construct, and enjoy!


Evolutionary Information-Graphics: I love combining graphic design with meaningful information and knowledge. I’m producing a series of Evolutionary Information Graphics (EIGs) on topics ranging from The Metaphysics of Meaning, Collective Intelligence, Archetypal Cosmology and more. Patrons will receive early access to these evolutionary information graphics as digital downloads and as print posters.





Articles and Blog Posts
: I’ve been casually blogging since 2005. Now I’m sharpening my pen to craft high quality, comprehensive articles on important ideas, significant trends, and prescient insights about our rapidly changing world. I intend to influence hearts and minds to imagine co-creating an extraordinary future. Topic areas range from trends in social culture, fringe discoveries in science, cutting-edge innovations in technology, trailblazing perspectives in consciousness research, and deep considerations into what it means to be a 21st century human being.

I aim to produce one comprehensive article or blog post every other month. I’ll be publishing publicly on my personal blogs and on Medium, and will also publish exclusive posts, articles, and extra content for patrons only here at Patreon.

Books and Book Excerpts: I’ve several book ideas in mind. As a scholar of literature and creative writing, I understand how much focus it can take to produce a quality book. So I’m narrowing my focus to just 3 books in sequence (one is already complete, and the other 2 will come in succession). I’ve recently published my completed compilation of poetry, Soul Kaleidoscope: Poems from the Old Future (read a sample poem). The next book, Evolutionary Experience Design: Elements, Principles, and Patterns for Individual Transformation & Collective Evolution is already being written, and will be available in 2021. Then the next book (secret title), a graphic rich story about the nature of reality and the extraordinary future we can move into, is in line to be available in 2023.

Patrons can get a digital copy of Soul Kaleidoscope: Poems from the Old Future, and get access to receive excerpts, graphics, sneak peeks, and bonus material as I develop the other books over the next few years.

Mythos Realitycast: is a videocast (and podcast) that explores the evolution of culture, communications, and consciousness--with an aim to provide greater articulation and examination of meaningful topics with robust conversations and supporting graphics. Realitycasts will usually run in parallel with the same topic themes of articles, graphics, and other content I’m producing. Topic areas range from trends in social culture, fringe discoveries in science, cutting-edge innovations in technology, trailblazing perspectives in consciousness research, and deep considerations into what it means to be a 21st century human being.


I aim to produce (on average) at least one Mythos Realitycast every other month (I want to place emphasis on quality over quantity). Patrons will receive early access to all Mythos Realitycasts (at least one week before the video and audio versions become public), as well as extra content related to each Realitycast. Patrons can also vote on future Mythos Realitycast topics.


Hyper-Journals: I’ve been keeping hand-written paper journals for over 30 years. There are around 3000+ pages in these journals--filled with my thoughts, memories, reflections, and overflowing with sketches, drawings, and diagrams of ideas, systems, and designs for projects I’m working on today or may be developing in the future. I’ve begun to scan these hand-written pages into digital format, and encode and organize them in an innovative, dynamic, on-line storage system for long term archival storage. I’m developing this Hyper-Journal system to include multi-dimensional (2D, 3D, 4D, and 5D) modes of visual interaction of the journal content. The initial interface is being developed here at Jalaka.Space. Only patrons will have access to this Hyper-Journal when the initial interface is ready in early 2021.



AION - Archetypal Cosmology software: I designed, architected, and programmed the AION software to visualize novel concepts in astrology and archetypal cosmology. Read more about the AION project here. This initial version of the AION - Archetypal Cosmology software is a ground-breaking and innovative software development (2004 - 2010): the first digital interactive representation of the principles of archetypal cosmology. Patrons can receive a digital copy (MacOS & Windows) of the AION software; it is exclusive to select patrons, and is not currently available anywhere else.



MythOS (Mythic Operating System): MythOS is a social network game for discovering, collecting, shaping, and sharing our personal stories of transformation, and co-creating a collective vision of our future. Oriented around narrative, MythOS engenders greater empathy and coherency within and across communities. Read more about MythOS here. MythOS is currently in development using cutting-edge network technologies. Supporting patrons can receive early access to the MythOS community network when the beta version is ready in 2021. Each supporting patron of MythOS will receive a unique, limited-edition (only 64) Mythic Token and personalized Scroll of Destiny. Each Mythic Token and Scroll of Destiny is uniquely encoded to grant early member access to the MythOS network. Supporting patrons will also receive updates, sneak peaks, and special content as MythOS develops.




Community Discord Group: Growing community is a primary goal. All patrons will get access to my patrons only Discord group. This group grants direct access to chat with me, and the rest of the community.

Community Webcasts: Once per month, I’ll be hosting an exclusive inner-circle community webcast (on Zoom) to discuss the topic of the month, and/or have an open conversation, and/or Q&A about most anything patrons want to ask me about. Patrons can receive access to these exclusive community webcasts.


I’ve several other projects in mind for future development: more software, tools, books, and games. As current projects are completed, new projects will be announced and offered to current and future patrons.

Mythic Systems is my business brand platform: a consolidated organizational hub offering the best of my research and development as products and services to the public. Read more about Mythic Systems. All patrons are casually offered a discount on any Mythic Systems product or service (just ask).



In addition to everything listed above, MORE perks, bonuses, and benefits (including sponsorship) are being offered to patrons, as described below:



With your support, you enable me to produce videocasts, podcasts, articles, information graphics, books, education programs, software, tools, games, and allow this channel of creative content and innovation to continue flowing!

When you become a patron, you also become a COMMUNITY member granted early access to everything I create, receiving exclusive access to behind-the-scenes content and to me, as we collectively co-create a planetary renaissance!

Here is an outline of the patron tiers you can choose from (see a detailed description of each member tier at the top of this  Patreon page):



What I'll use these funds for:

• General living support, allowing me to apply greater attention on research and development of ideas, content, systems, tools, and games to bring to you.
• Technical gear, software, and specialized assistance to improve quality of media and production.
• Outsourcing technical development of MythOS network software.An accounting sheet is available to any patron who requests access to it (so you can see exact incoming and outgoing value flows).

Your support helps provide better evolutionary experiences for all!



What is Patreon?

Patreon is a way to support your favorite creators and pay them for making the content you love! You can pay what you want on a monthly basis, helping the creator to get paid regularly and becoming a patron of the arts. With the growth of online content (and, unfortunately, content-stealing), it's difficult for creators to receive the compensation they deserve, and you can help by becoming a patron!

How does it work?
If you like my work and you want to help me, choose how much you want to pledge per month (even $3 makes a difference) and you'll get access to awesome rewards, exclusive illustrations, and behind-the-scenes sneak peeks. If you want to see a step-by-step for how to sign up, click  here.

When will I be charged?
Your membership will be charged on the first day of the month after you sign up (so if you sign up mid-August, you'll be charged September 1). You'll be charged every first of the month after that. You can learn more  here.

Can I cancel or change my tier?
Yes! At any time, you can change your tier or cancel so there's no pressure if you change your mind or can no longer afford it. If you want to edit your membership, click here for info on how. If you want to cancel your membership, click here for info on how.

Do you have additional questions about Patreon, how to use the platform, or regarding payment?
Check out the Patreon Help section! There are tons of great resources there and step-by-step instructions (with pictures) on how to find what you're looking for. If you can't find it there, send a message to Patreon Support. Other questions? Shoot me a message on Facebook.

Goals
0 of 20 patrons
When I reach 20 patrons, I'll send each of these first 20 patrons a special Mythic Founders certificate--each good for a free one-on-one 15 minute consultation on any topic (technology, cryptocurrencies, evolution of consciousness, astrology, etc).
