This album uses similar sounds as in Hypnagogia. It incorporates themes such as psychology and, in particular, Serial Experiments Lain. The psychological concept called Meta is the final stage of self-awareness, when the self is the body, the mind, and the understanding that others, in a manner of speaking, can think about us. Self-awareness progresses from childhood into adulthood, and has, in accordance with some theories, a direct relation to self-realization. Mindfulness plays a significant role in the development of self-awareness. Meta the album, by Memex, has tracks reflective of aspects of the idea of Meta, such as consciousness and omnipresent. Meta can be included in the theories of Carl Jung, tying the album Meta and its predecessor The Collective together.
