Magic (technological)
The ability of powers, seraiph, archai and archailects to interact in subtle or dramatic ways so that quantum events can be manipulated in seemingly inexplicable ways, or social dynamics adjusted.
Such hyperturings might hold strange plans for organics under their influence. Maybe the AIs would answer prayers or grant blessings to their followers, maybe they would rule through sudden shows of power or dramatic effects. Occasionally, like Prometheus, a few organics could steal the secrets of magic from an AI, spawning a society of upstart mages working against the true priesthood of the AI.
