Polyomegism
The idea, championed by the empaths and other clades and phyles, that Omega could or should be achieved by an union of several (or all) AI gods / archailects. Polymegists debated what forms of cooperation would be achievable and ideal, gradually turning much theology into a branch of game theory.

The Version War destroyed the Second Federation polymegism. The monomegists and polymegists diversified and splintered, coming up with whole ranges of closure or eschaton scenarios but no consensus on anything. The polymegist influence on the ideological infrastructure of the Commonwealth of Empires and Synergesis Protocol gave them a brief flowering, but the earlier splintering is a major factor in the dissolution of the new ontology.
