A future c-boundary which is a single point and an Aleph. In Classical Tiplerism this state is described as:

Information processing continues indefinitely along at least one world-line gamma all the way to the future c-boundary of the universe.

The amount of information processed between now and the future c-boundary is infinite in the region of space-time with which the worldline gamma can communicate.

The amount of information stored at any given time tau within this region diverges to infinity as tau approaches its future limit.

  • Benisolism - Text by M. Alan Kazlev
    Omegist philosophy of Mahara Benisol. While according to transingularity philosophers it lacks the insights of some of the Empires era posthuman and high hyperturing eschatologist, there is no denying the tremendous influence Benisolism had on all later eschatology, whether near-baseline, superbright, or transingularitan. Without the Benisolist foundation, it is most unlikely there would even have been a science of eschatology.

  • Closed Universe - Text by M. Alan Kazlev
    A model of the universe in which the average density is great enough to reverse the expansion and cause it to contract to a physical singularity. Although a closed universe is a matter of faith among Tiplerites (Omega Point), Theosophists, Buddhists, and some NuAgers (cyclic cosmology), it has been known since pre-singularity time that the universe is open.

    Religious and philosophical belief that one's own AI as the one that will eventually grow into the template of Omega. Monomegism became the ideological underpinning or at least undercurrent of much of the emerging empires and their continued expansion in the age of Empires.
