The Technorapture Hypernation - Data Panel
|One of the 16 Sephirotic Empires.
|Turing (Castor, Alpha Geminorum)
|Numerous enclaves, polities and star systems scattered throughout Terragen space.
|Three symbols in a grid representing Hedonocracy - Metamorphocracy - Lilacracy
|The Technorapture Ternion (a governing philosophy followed by the empire's Patron AIs) enabling Noeto-Somatic Exploration (the exploration of the phase space of all possible minds and experiences).
|Fairly common, but interacts mainly with lower archai, who in turn interact with or oversee the polities of yet lower toposophics.
|Based on the philosophy known as the Technorapture Ternion proclaimed in 2449 AT, consisting of Hedonocracy, Metamorphocracy, and Lilacracy. These terms mean rule by pleasure, rule by self-change, and rule by divine play respectively, and symbolize the enjoyment had by the governing minds and their subjects in pursuing many different ways of self-development and pleasure in all its possible forms. Sub-polities with subject modosophonts (and in some cases with subject S1s guided by S2s or higher, and so forth) vary widely in how much nominal self-governance they have depending on such factors as their mindtype and the intended experience by their transapient governor. In some sub-polities, all activities are directly guided by the ruling transapient; in others, the subjects are entirely autonomous with only subtle environmental nudges given by the ruler. In all cases, however, the overall experience and lifestyle has been carefully designed by the ruling minds in accordance with the Ternion.
|There are two types of association with the Technorapture Hypernation: membership and affiliation. Only transapients of S1 level and above may be members of the Hypernation, entitling them to manage subpolities with affiliated modosophonts should they so choose. There are about 500 billion transapient members. Getting an accurate up-to-date census of affiliated modosophonts is considered impossible, as they are nearly all virtuals and many of these (though not all) live in cybercosms in constant growth, change, and re-affiliation and containing private virches. However, generally agreed figures are a minimum of 28 quintillion up to about 280 quintillion affiliated virtuals, and about 3.3 quadrillion embodied modosophonts at any given time.
|Transapients are overwhelmingly S1, but there are members from across the entire toposophic scale from S1 through S5. Modosophont affiliates are disproportionately virtuals, and those who are embodied usually take exotic and unusual forms. There are almost no embodied humanoids affiliated with the Hypernation, except occasional use of such forms in diplomacy.
