One who transcends to one toposophic, then ascends to the next.

For example a modosophont may transcend to the first toposophic level (S:1), and lose all of its previous toposophic nature and transform into an entirely new entity, while retaining its previous memories only as usable and accessible data. The transcended entity may then ascend to the second toposophic level (S:2), retaining its S:1 nature but adding an S2 superstructure on top of the S1 nature. Sometimes the transcension-ascension process allows the new entity to recover or recreate some of its original characteristics, but this does not always happen.

Contrast ascend-transcend. Often however the dividing lines are not this well defined.
