Power (toposophy)
[1] A po; any entity of S1 or greater (AI, posthuman, postxenosophont, postvec, etc.).
[2] A godlet; a being of high singularity (generally S2 to S3) toposophy. A being of inconceivable intelligence and capability, self-evolving, self-constituting and from the point of view of ordinary sapient beings unlimited. Powers are intermediate between standard super-intelligent transapients (lower transingularity) and archailects (higher hypersingularity). Often they are completely enigmatic to those sentients below them. In some cases, powers serve as mediators between the archai and the superintelligent and subsingularity beings (as seraiph for example), while in other instances they follow their own independent evolution and development. There are believed to be several million powers in existence through the Terragen Sphere.
