[3] A toposophic grade of creative problem-solving, incomprehensible to those that have not attained that state. See also, Singularity Levels.

  • Singularity Alert Service - Text by John B
    A service often available in more-civilized areas. These services maintain sensor and informant networks geared towards the detection of new singularities, and new interests of high-S factor sentiences. For a subscription fee, these services will send warning of potential infringements on the subscribers' areas of interest. As an ironic twist, most SAS are SI:>2-driven.
