This would also explain why Mage powers are affected by Paradox, but other supernaturals aren't. Sleepers don't usually know they can use magick, so it's up for debate. Paradigms can accept for reject that. Vampires, werewolves, etc. are more primal than that. They exist as a representation of human fears, so their powers supercede any mundane paradigm that rejects them. Their existence is already fueled by belief, so that belief extends to what they can do.

Human beings, as part of their survival instincts, fear the unknown. This is good, because not being afraid of what might be lurking in the dark could get a human eaten by a mountain lion. However, no matter how much humans learn of their world, that fear persists. For humans, instinctively, there must always exist monsters. And so there are. They fear predators well in excess of their lowly powers, so vampires and lupines came into being. They wonder at stories and the pure power of creativity, so Faeries exist. They dread what exists after death, so a state after death - a Wraith - exists, and has an afterlife to populate (which is almost always influenced by what people imagine the afterlife to be). Monsters exist because humans cannot truly believe they don't, and no amount of denying it will change that fundamental fear.

Whether or not they had a knowing alliance with the Camarilla, the Technocracy had a vested interest in maintaining the Masquerade and the resources (via the New World Order and Syndicate) to do it. Nothing like a common goal to encourage TeethClenchedTeamwork.

Nothing like a common goal to encourage TeethClenchedTeamwork. In some Sabbat-controlled areas, the Technocracy is the ''only'' thing maintaining the Masquerade.
