Singularity levels and their limitations
The TL;DR of Todd's explanation is that each S-levels Theory of Mind is orders of magnitude greater than that below. When a transap models human behaviour in its mind the entities in its imagination can be as cognitively complex as the real thing. They probably aren't most of the time, experience and transap science probably mean they have more efficient simplified models but the end result is the same.

For higher transaps and archai they can model entire societies and predict the outcomes of thousands of variables as easy as baseline humans can work out the likely outcome of slapping a friend for no reason. IMO it's this ability more than any other that explains why transaps rule. Even without their superior science and technology figuring out how to get a society of humans to do what they want is as easy as us manipulating pets with treats.
