A young open cluster in the Keter Dominion, site of the largest archailect concentration in known space. Over the last 7000 years the Aleph intelligences have converted all available matter into computronium, creating diamond lattice habitats for a very large number of AIs, infovores and virtuals than anywhere else (a rough estimate implies over 10E8 trans-singularitan entities). Due to the extreme speed of individual and cultural evolution, together with the vastening effect, the Aleph cluster has little interest in external (even Keterist) politics or trade with bionts.
