Compared to the lower toposophic levels, there are relatively few integral Godtech civilizations, as these are limited to the most developed and infrastructure-supported archailect regions and requite vast processing and energy resources. They are often hyperfast, abstract or virch-oriented, short-lived, and completely inscrutable to lower toposophics. Nevertheless the technology generated by these civilizations, or by individual high toposophic Minds associated with them, can be found widely throughout the Terragen Sphere, often discarded or forgotten by its makers; occasionally deliberately provided to lower sophonts, whether out of kindness or whim.
Although some measure of interaction has been possible since the emergence of the archailects, true godtech civilisations and intelligences are rarely accessible for less developed civilisations and often depart for abstract spaces.
