Surhomme
Enigmatic asexual posthuman clade, associated with various consciousness-altering phenomena.

According to their followers (who include bionts and vecs, and even a few hyperturings), the Surhomme are, like the Auromirrans descendants of the Old Earth sages Aurobindo and Mirra, and have attained a state of transcendent omegization. Very little is known of the Surhomme emselves, as they are generally reclusive and tend to avoid the large Nexus worlds. Most of the claims promulgated by their sapient followers verges on the ridiculous, but this is no different to any other metaphysical biont or vec religion. The number of Surhomme in the galaxy is not known, but is believed to be no more than a few dozen. It is even claimed that they are to be found on Earth, and are working together with the archailect GAIA.
