Transcendent Thought is a Discover technology in Alpha Centauri.

Background[ | ]

Based on Controlled Singularity (C16) and Threshold of Transcendence (E19), this technology finally unlocks the keys to the final stage of evolution with Transcendent Thought—the ability to contain a self-awareness, or ‘soul’, outside the bounds of a corporeal form. Those who so choose may now complete the Ascent to Transcendence, joining their consciousness with the Planetary mind in ageless immortality.
