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.
- 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.
- Metempiric space: Extracosmological zone not part of an altarca. No extent, no meaningful properties, nada.
- Altarca: Sealed portions of the Box with different structures than seen below; self-contained cosmologies, in a sense.
- The Barrelplex: This wiki's "local" altarca, containing the structure seen below, including the Barrel and its contents.
- [ Some kind of very-high-order cosmological hierarchy goes here. Still working on how to handle it. ]
- Beyond: A form of higher-order nonspace holding monocosms.
- Monocosm: 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: Largest archverse, mapped to ordinal omega. Infinitely high up in the archverse chain and is really more of a "direction" one approaches by counting... like ordinal omega. Infinite group of "highest-level" archverses.
- "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: two levels below Omniverse. Infinite group of lower-level archverses. Roll with it.
- Archverse: one level above megaverse. Infinite group of megaverses. This one's called "gigaverse", and you can name higher metric prefixes past it if you want.
- 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 Structure Of Everything: The name used to describe the structure in which something contains another thing lower than itself, The Box is still a part of this.
- The Box: The ultimatum of all existing and nonexistent altarcae. If you can, or can't think of something, it's in the box. Cantor's absolute infinity can be assigned to it.
- 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: The sum of every beyond-bubble. Theta (an inaccessible transfinite number) can be assigned to it.
- 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 The Unimaginable. Epsilon naught can be assigned to it.
- 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. Omega can be assigned to every monocosm.
- 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.
- The Box: Highest set ever, containing every conceivable and inconceivable idea ever.
- Beyond: Indescribable "space" beyond all existence.
- Godverse: Spiritual Realms exceeding all logic and Reality.
- Omniverse: Transfinite space containing or connecting all of existence.
- Ultraverse: Collection of almost every single megaverse, realm, dimension in existence.
- Megaverse: Group of Multiverse's
- Multiverse: Group of Universe's
- Universe: A single reality with a certain set of physical properties.
- Universe (ours): Where we live.
- Supercluster: Cluster of Galaxies
- Galaxy: a system of millions or billions of stars, together with gas and dust, held together by gravitational attraction.
- Interstellar Neighborhood:
- Solar System

- ---- Probably the most ridiculous theory below. ----
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' cosmology hierarchy thing
- The Box - The Box is the largest imaginable or unimaginable set, and contains every concept, idea, reality, altarca, and anything beyond it. It even contains itself an infinite amount of times, and structures claimed to be larger than it.
- The Box
- Altarca - A Cosmological hierarchy that can have any structure, such as this one.
- Beyond - The "space" that monocosms are held in.
- Monocosm - A collective group that holds an omniverse and its nearest Godverses. The "space" that exists throughout a monocosm is known as the Outside.
- Godverse - Areas of unreality that surround an omniverse. Believed to be home to omnipotent cosmic entities.
- Omniverse - A Cosmology transcendent space that contains all of reality and fiction, and is widely considered the supremum to the archverse hierarchy, as archverses are subsets of the Omniverse.
- Ultraverse - Cohort of extremely high-level archverses, often so high that any prefix needed to denote its name would have no discernible difference with a successor or predecessor archverse.
- Archverse - Iterations of "infinite sets" of a universe. One may place archverses at sets such as aleph or beth cardinals, or view an archverse as a stack of flat "branes", which contain smaller archverses. Typically, the naming system of archverses uses metric prefixes after mega- (Gigaverse, Teraverse, Petaverse, Exaverse, Zettaverse, Yottaverse, and so on. Ones after yottaverse use extended systems.)
- Megaverse - Considered to be an "infinite set of multiverses". As infinity times infinity is still infinity, one must take advantage of sets or dimensions in order to define a megaverse, and all following nested archverses.
- Multiverse - An infinite set of all possible permutations of a universe, generally considered to be other parallel universes with their own timelines, laws, and objects.
- Universe cohort - A finite collection of (generally closely related) universes.
- Universe - An independent, self-contained infinite or finite area of spacetime with some amount of dimensions, physical and mathematical laws, and usually holds matter and energy within.
- Googological region - An arbitrarily large spherical area of a Universe that encompasses an area of googologically large proportions. Light from the edge of the sphere often never reaches an observer in the center.
- Observable universe - The spherical area of a universe that a being is able to observe and study. The limit of the farthest regions one can be able to see is the maximum distance light would have travelled to an observer within the age of a universe, the "particle horizon". Every being has their own observable universe and is the center of their observable universe.
- Turtlie - An arbitrarily large collection of galaxies. Can contain smaller turtlies.
- Supercluster complex
- Galaxy cluster
