Hyperbolic Denebola Collapse
A subtype of Denebola collapse, also called a Bourgatov Collapse.

In the Terenshicaw system of pathological AI, the logistic breakdown of a quickly growing entity (called a Denebola collapse) is divided into elliptic, parabolic and hyperbolic collapse. An elliptic collapse is essentially a logistic gridlock where inter-process communication grows until all available resources are used for coordination rather than growth. Sometimes called bureaucratic collapse. In a parabolic collapse the coordination resources keep up with the demands, but the delays grow as the system expands. Eventually the lags either slow the expansion or cause the system to fragment into competing subsystems. In the hyperbolic case the fast evolution of different subsystems cause incoherence and internal conflicts, turning the system into an ecology rather than single entity. In some rare cases metalevel coordination might emerge, creating a secondary stage blight.
