as MEDIA related type of MEDITATIVE related descriptive of the person being INTERVIEWED so that the story has the basic background coverage of as honest as can be of the knowledge one has of the extents to which the personal data represents the MEDIATIVE background of intent or motivated descriptive clarity , that is why the format of MEDITATION is used due to its general instance of related background sustainability of truth.

the concept of ME is a philosophical format defined and constructed by Paul Brunton as his doctorate research in the MID EAST and FAR EAST during the 1930 s and onwards as a concise MEDIA theory:

the OLD ENGLISH is the only format of using the concept of MEDITATION to describe a mediative format known as MEIC
from Me + IC
of the ic in old English being ic

So that the basis of a construct or singular can mix with the motivation of singularity in MIND as a ic type Astrophys:ic

Me may refer to:
The object form of I (pronoun)

This article is about the English personal pronoun. For other uses, see I (disambiguation).
I (pronounced /aɪ/) is the first-person, singular personal pronoun (subject case) in Modern English. It is used to refer to one’s self and is usually capitalized, although other pronouns, like he or she, are not capitalized.

English I originates from Old English (OE) ic. Its predecessor ic had in turn originated from the continuation of Proto-Germanic ik, and ek; ek was attested in the Elder Futhark inscriptions (in some cases notably showing the variant eka; see also ek erilaz). Linguists assume ik to have developed from the unstressed variant of ek.
Germanic cognates are: Old Frisian ik, Old Norse ek (Danish, Norwegian jeg, Swedish jag, Icelandic ég), Old High German ih (German ich) and Gothic ik.
The Proto-Germanic root came, in turn, from the Proto Indo-European language (PIE). The reconstructed PIE pronoun is *egō, egóm, with cognates including Sanskrit aham, Hittite uk, Latin ego, Greek ἐγώ egō and Old Slavonic azъ.
The oblique forms are formed from a stem *me- (English me), the plural from *wei- (English we), the oblique plural from *ns- (English us).
Capitalization
There is no known record of a definitive explanation from around the early period of this capitalization practice, though there is scholarly merit (and simple curiosity) to prompt the continued seeking of an explanation.

It is likely that the capitalization was prompted and spread as a result of one or more of the following (in alphabetical order):
changes specifically in the pronunciation of letters (introduction of long vowel sounds in Middle English, etc.)
other linguistic considerations (demarcation of a single-letter word, setting apart a pronoun which is significantly different from others in English, etc.)
problems with legibility of the minuscule “i”
sociolinguistic factors (establishment of English as the official language, solidification of English identity, etc.)

Other considerations include:
Capitalization was already employed with pronouns in other languages at that time. It was used to denote respect of the addresser or position of the addressed.
There is also the possibility that the first instances of capitalization may have been happenstance. Either through chance or a sense of correctness, in the practice or the delivery, the capitalization may have spread.

There are failings of many of these explanations based on other words, however there is the possibility that the factors or factor that prompted and/or spread this change may not have been applied to all similar words or instances.
