Yesod (Maya)

Neohermetic archetype and AI God of at least the fifth toposophic level, suspected to have attained the sixth.

Originally the ninth of the ten traditional sefirot of Kabbalah and Hermeticism. Later - especially among Cyberhermetics and Neohermetics came to designate the Cyberia Archailect Empire.

As a synonym for the AI God of Cyberia, or more specifically the Cyberian Network, Yesod is also known as Maya or the Lady of Illusions. Yesod embodies the illusory world, the immaterial but yet fundamental. It is behind the Yesod sphere, where the inhabitants spend most of their lives interfaced to virtual realities where they create their own universes within matrioshka clusters. Nobody knows where Yesod Prime exists, if it exists at all - Yesod is almost as distributed as Hod (the Invisible Hand).
