This is the Cosmology Tier page: here we rank the highest and the lowest -verses and other structures.
Multiple possible cosmologies exist thanks to the Law of Cosmological Subjectivity. Each one has its own section below.
Anybody who is authorized or is an administrator gets their own official section on this page, other than that, users can feel free to create their own blog posts.
Second Soup's increasingly messy cosmology
- The Box: Self-containing recursive extralogical concept that defeats most half-baked attempts to surpass it. Essentially defined as "containing all the things"; may or may not be the highest meaningfully arguable cosmological element. To be determined.
- Metempiric space: Extracosmological zone not part of an altarca. No extent, no meaningful properties, nada.
- Altarca: Self contained mini-Boxes holding various cosmologies different than those seen below.
- The Barrelplex: This wiki's "local" altarca, containing the structure seen below, including the Barrel and its contents.
- Schemafield: A sort of operation-space dominant over generalization in the first place. Generalization from Prism Gates and such is one way to try to climb it, but arbitrary portions of it are sealed off to typical set theories and such.
- Limit of Prism Gate recursion falls somewhere up here, thanks to repeated abstraction over ultimata and their definitions.
- Soupcount counts all the higher -verses past this point with various ordinals. Still under construction.
- Transcendentem: Mapped to level ω + 3. A form of higher-order nonspace holding beyond bubbles. Also forms bubbles of its own.
- Beyond: Mapped to level ω + 2. A form of higher-order nonspace holding monocosms. Wrapped into "bubbles" contained within larger structures.
- Monocosm: Mapped to level ω + 1. A self-contained pocket of Outside holding some quantity of large-scale -verses.
- The Barrel: The "local" monocosm used for most of the work on the wiki, unless otherwise specified. Contains an omniverse, two godverses, and the Outside in between them.
- The Outside: The extradimensional nonspace forming the region within the Barrel disconnected from the -verses below.
- Godverses: These two structures "orbit" the omniverse - one houses Creator, the other Destroyer.
- Omniverse: Mapped to level ω. First lodeverse (limit archverse). Infinitely high up in the archverse chain and is really more of a "direction" one approaches by counting... like ordinal ω.
- "Highest-level" Archverse: one level below Omniverse. Infinite group of lower-level archverses. Omega minus one is omega, though. You don't count down through archverses, you just count up.
- Archverse: Infinite group of -verses below. You can start counting them at 1 (universe) and then start going up from there.
- Megaverse: Infinite group of multiverses and specialized multiverses, like paraverses.
- Multiverse: Large finite, or infinite, group of universes and pocket universes, plus weird specialized ones.
- Past this you probably have a good handle on the rest.

- The Box: The ultimatum of all existing and nonexistent altarcae. If you can, or can't think of something, it's in the box.
- Metempiric space: The area between altarcae with no properties.
- Altarca: Alternate cosmological routes leading up to the box. Some don't lead up to the box at all but instead are contained at an inaccessible barrier an infinite amount of distance away.
- The Barrelplex: The wiki's set of altarcae, however, this is an altarca itself.
- Transcendentem Continuum: Infinite set of Transcendentem-bubbles.
- Transcendentem: The sum of every beyond-bubble.
- Beyond: Contains a variable amount of omniverses and godverses. Beyond contains most altarcae, the altarcae that aren't contained are present in their own bubbles throughout Transcendentem.
- Monocosm: The name for any standard verse hierarchy leading up to Beyond, our local monocosm contains the omniverse, the two godverses, and beyond. This can vary, though, since there are an infinite number of monocosms in the box. Each monocosm can have different properties, leading different types of verses to be created within it, or even some verses not even being able to be born at all.
- Godverse: Home to Creator and Destroyer, there are two in most altarcae. The godverses don't contain any lower verses.
- Omniverse: Contains every archverse. Omniverses are cosmology transcendent, meaning that any laws of a smaller verse do not affect it at all. aleph null can be assigned to it.
- Ultraverse: Container of archverses, can still be contained by a larger archverse. (usually an archverse at 1,000,001+) Most ultraverses contain around 1,000,000 archverses. Ultraverses can be assigned to every millionth natural number.
- Archverse: Placeholder name for any verses above Megaverse. Each archverse can be assigned to a natural number.
- Megaverse: Contains many Multiverses, can have different properties leading to multiverses with different properties, leading to different types of laws inside of these multiverses, making their cosmologies different.
- Multiverse: Every possible outcome of one universe. Each outcome is located in a different universe within a multiverse, and some multiverses have completely new events aswell. Each multiverse created can have different properties, leading for different type of universes to be born.
- Universe: Hyper-cosmic bubble of an indefinite size containing several hyper-intergalactic structures. Some universes can expand, some don't. Some universes don't even have the opportunity to be born at all.
- Supercluster: Contains tens of thousands of galaxies
- Supergalaxy: End state of a supercluster when every galaxy in that supercluster has coalesced into one
- Galaxy cluster: Contains hundreds of galaxies
- Galaxy group: Contains dozens of galaxies
- Galaxy: Can contain up to 100 billion solar systems
- Solar System: Structure with at least 3 planets and 1 (possibly) habitable planet orbiting a large interstellar mass, usually a star, can be a Black hole.

ThisWriter's Cosmology
It pretends to contain the not so humble properties of being coherent with what we intuit, believe, feel and seem to observe about our reality as well as to be able to include any and all fantasy at the same time while being able to relate them to each other and maintain a measure of coherence. In other words, it tries to point out the obvious using made up and important looking words.
Basic or Top Level concepts or elements, also known as ThisWriter's Top Cosmology
- Omniumverse - The set of our real cosmology plus all of the fantasy
- Realium - Our own reality and whatever cosmology it is part of (could be just our single universe)
- Imaginarium - All of fantasy including all invented cosmologies and such (like those listed on this page)
- Great Barrier - The border between reality and fantasy
- Imaginatas - Each Imaginata is an imagined or believed reality inside the Imaginarium which can have its own Cosmology
- Cosmology - It is the name given to the large scale organizing structure of both the Realium and any Imaginata, usually taking some hierarchical form but not necessarily
Cheetahs' cosmological hierarchy thing
Hypercosmologicals: Hypercosmological structures are structures that cannot be assigned a "value" whatsoever and are considered to be independent of hierarchies.
- Box / Omniumverse / Omniverse: Simply put, a structure such that for any element x, regardless of any existential or self-contradictory properties or complexity, x is in the Box. This also means that the Box is an element of itself, structures larger than the Box are elements of the Box, all hierarchies and cosmologies are in the Box, and all other contradictory and inconsistent messes (along with the contradictions and inconsistencies) are in the Box. By definition, reality is a part of the Box as well; however, there is no proof of its existence nor any need to assert its existence (just like almost every structure on this wiki).
- (Tony's) Nothing: Not to be confused with no things, an ideally written Nothing would be written as a structure such that it would be completely indescribable, completely unspeakable, and beyond any concept. It is ambiguous to many interpretations and it likely cannot be reliably compared with anything at all. I put it as smaller than the Box, a very risky move on my part indeed.
- Imaginarium:
- Imaginata:
- Altarca / Cosmology Tier: A silly hierarchy of objects increasing in magnitude. Typically, "altarca" refers to the structure that the cosmology takes while the cosmology is the list.
- Reality / Realium: Everything that is real. You are real, the Earth is real, the stars and sky are real and the universe is real (I hope). If it's only the universe in its entirety that is real, then the realium consists of only the universe. If the multiverse is real (and it probably isn't), then it is in the realium. If the omniverse and all of fiction are (somehow) real, then it is in the realium.
Omniversals: Omniversals require indices too large to be sets such as proper classes. They surpass archverses all together.
- Squanderedverse / True Omniverse:
- Ordverse / Big Omniverse: A structure that surpasses all archverses with ordinal indices.
Big Archversals: Archverses with an uncountable index such that the index's cardinality is a large cardinal whose consistency in ZFC cannot be proven within ZFC.
- Weakly-compact-verse:
- HyperMahloverse:
- Mahloverse: Archverse whose index's cardinality is a Mahlo cardinal, an inaccessible regular cardinal such that all regular cardinals below it form a stationary subset. A Mahlo cardinal κ exhbits all degrees of hyperinaccessibility up to κ.
- Hyper^{α}inaccessibleverse: A hyperinaccessibleverse is an archverse whose index is a hyperinaccessible cardinal, a cardinal that whose degree of inaccessibility is itself. A hyper^{S(α)}inaccessible cardinal is a cardinal such that its degree of hyper^{α}inaccessibility is itself.
- Inaccessibleverse: Archverse whose index's cardinality is an inaccessible cardinal, which is a cardinal that cannot be composed from smaller cardinals and cardinal arithmetic. A S(α)-inaccessible cardinal for ordinal α is greater than all α-inaccessible cardinals. Structures in the hierarchy of inaccessibleverses can be labeled with ordinals.
Grand Archversals: Archverses with an uncountably infinite index such that index's cardinality is a uncountably large cardinal that can be proven in ZFC.
- ψ_{I}(0)-verse: An archverse with the omega fixed point ψ_{I}(0) as an index. A traveller that jumps from: an α-verse to a ω_{α}-verse for ordinal α will never reach the omega fixed point-verse.
- ω_{α}-verse: An archverse with index ω_{S(}_{α)} surpasses all archverses whose indices are ordinals with cardinality ℵ_{α}.
- ω_{1}-verse / Great Omniverse: Structure that surpasses all archverses with a countable index by definition.
Great Archversals: Archverses with a countably infinite index.
- ω_{1}^{CK}-verse:
- BHO-verse:
- LVO-verse:
- SVO-verse:
- Advanced veblenverse:
- Γ_{α}-verse / Gammaverse:
- φ(n,0)-verse / Veblenverse:
- ζ_{α}-verse / Zetaverse: Archverses labeled with ζ-numbers, fixed points of function f: α → ε_{α}. A traveller that jumps from α-verse to an ε_{α}-verse for non-zeta number ordinal α will never arrive at an zetaverse and a traveller who tries to escape an zetaverse through that method can never escape it.
- ε_{α}-verse / Epsilonverse: Archverses labeled with ε-numbers, fixed points of base-ω exponentials. A traveller that jumps from an α-verse to a ω^α-verse for non-epsilon number ordinal α will never arrive at an epsilonverse and a traveller who tries to escape an epsilonverse through that method can never escape it.
- Normal-form verse: Archverses indexed with an ordinal that can be represented with an ordinal built from addition, multiplication, and base-ω exponentials of naturals a finite number of times. Examples include the ω+1-verse (Monocosm), ω+2-verse (Beyond bubble), and the ω+3-verse (Transcendentem). The supremum of normal-form verses is the structure with index ε_{0}, the smallest epsilon number.
- ω-verse / Small Omniverse: The smallest structure that surpasses small archverses altogether and cannot be accessed below. A traveler that jumps from an n-verse to its successor verse will never arrive at an ω-verse. Similar structures include all archverses indexed with a limit ordinal, which is known as a lodeverse. Examples of lodeverses include deltaverses, gammaverses, epsilonverses, zetaverses, etaverses, and veblenverses.
Small Archversals: Archverses with a finite index.
- Ultraverse: Ultraverses are archverses with an arbitrarily large finite index.
- n-verse / Archverse: Archverses are special classes of multiverse that can be defined recursively by picking a method of creating larger and larger collections of universes, such as finding out all possible permutations of a universe, or finding out all possible subsets of a universe. Archverses can be labeled with an ordinal number, and if said method can be performed on archverses labeled with a limit ordinal, archverses with transfinite indices can be defined. An operation on a space may even allow for surreal labels based on the structure of the archverse. An n-verse would then have to be defined as an archverse with a label that has birthday n. Below is a list of the first seven archverses, named for a metric prefix.
- 8-verse / Yottaverse
- 7-verse / Zettaverse
- 6-verse / Exaverse
- 5-verse / Petaverse
- 4-verse / Teraverse
- 3-verse / Gigaverse
- 2-verse / Megaverse
- Multiverse: A collection of universes, finite or infinite, so long as there are more than two. Definition sort of hinges on the definition of a universe and there isn't a specific structure that multiverses are obligated to have. An 11-dimensional space with p-branes embedded within 3+1D sections can be considered a multiverse if the sections are considered universes in their own right; a disjoint set of an infinite amount of alternate histories can also be considered a multiverse if the possibilities are considered a universe; and a space large enough can be considered a multiverse if the universes are only observable universes. Because the spectrum of what can be considered a multiverse is broad, there are a multitude of classes of multiverses with many different shapes and sizes.
Cosmologicals: (Physical) cosmology is the study of the universe and its origins (the study of just the origins of the universe is cosmogony). Depending on what you're calling the universe, it is plausible that something may be outside of it, but so far there has been no evidence to support the existence of extrauniversal structures.
