The issue is S3 and S4 minds are so vast that you're not going to assemble enough modosophont, or even S1 minds, to make up one. You need to have a few S2s and S3s in the mix to get the idea to properly fit in canon. This could work quite well if you had a smooth pyramid of toposophic levels with them all working together to make an S4. The key thing to note is that each topoposhic level contributes less than those above, due to quantitative and qualitative differences in their minds. The S3 minds would contribute the bulk of the cognitive functions, then S2, S1 etc. The quadrillion or so modo transavant minds would still contribute to the whole but their input would be relatively negligable.

This of course isn't a problem because OA isn't the type of setting where everything has to be 100% efficient or one in which we need near-human characters to have significant influence wrt to archai level minds.
OA Wish list:
  1. DNI
  2. Internal medical system
  3. A dormbot, because domestic chores suck!
