Branch of science and school of philosophy dealing with the history of mindkind in the Galaxy as a whole. No specific emphasis is given to Terragen life or civilization, beyond acknowledging it as one more civilization to arise, and eventually to pass away. One of the problems Galactic History enquires into is the enigma of alien civilizations. Since a hypersingulitaritan entity is potentially immortal, it is not clear why earlier AIs and Postaliens are not still in existence.
