I don't know about that. I suppose it depends on the definition of "Master" (most of the "discussion" in here seems to depend on murky definitions, hence the noise-to-info ratio).
I know a person who definitely has certain...skills and knowledge; but his heart is as black as midnight, and he serves only himself - others are here for his use as long as he finds it convenient. But I suppose one can have empathy and understanding and still choose not to act on them in the conventional way.
