The study of the relations between and evolutionary development of the various types of singularity ascensions of mindkind. A branch of dendrotoposophy.
Phylotoposophy deals with the shape of the evolutionary trees of ascension in terms of branching toposophic phylogenies and their many stages and intermediates. It is known that instead of a single SI:1 there is a whole branching tree of toposophics, some mutually opposing, others complementary (dendrotoposophy). Some favour silicon intelligence, others carbon intelligence, some are subjectivist, others objectivist, others have no correlates in S<1 understanding. With some the branches then link up and merge, with others they diverge even further.

- Transcend-Ascend - Text by M. Alan Kazlev
One who transcends to one toposophic, then ascends to the next. For example an intelligence may transcend to SI:1, leaving behind everything of itself that was of SI:<1. Then e may ascend to S2, retaining eir SI:1 nature but adding an S2 superstructure on top of the SI:1 nature. Contrast ascend-transcend. Often however the dividing lines are not this well defined.

- Transcendent Being - Text by M. Alan Kazlev
An entity that is distinct from physical existence, whether considered ontologically, as a supernatural or supraphysical being, or soteriologically, as a being that is no longer a part of embodied existence or samsara. The existence of a transcendent being or beings (e.g. God, Buddhas, etc.) is central to many religious memeticities, but denied by physicalist memeticities.

- Transcension Prediction - Text by Anders Sandberg and M. Alan Kazlev
Given the huge population of the civilized galaxy, and the fact that ascensions and transcensions are moderately common and have been going on for thousands of years, many polities and civilizations have developed some fairly reliable methods for predicting the onset of one of these events. Often this is comparable to pre- and post-singularity efforts at predicting the weather (and a large transcendence event does indeed share some conceptual characteristics with a force of nature to those watching from outside at a lower S level).
