Articles on Optimistic science fiction
Even ordinary modosophonts might seem very strange to us in their approach and outlook toward problems.

In RL there is still a tendency to feel that we are more helpless passengers on the world than in real control. For a Terragen modosophont, 'the world' will usually have been literally created by their ancestors and be totally understood (not counting transapient bits). They're ageless and very resilient, can create life, travel the stars, etc. And most problems have probably cropped up millions of times across millions of solar systems - along with their solutions. So, in many cases, dealing with a problem is a matter of looking it up and picking the solution that you think will work best, rather than trying to figure it out from scratch.
