Planar Sophont

as found in the pages of the Zd10 Wiki

This is the page for the Trigate Major Sophont category.

Intelligent life generally comes in one of three types:

  • Sapient life has achieved sapience. Technically, sapience is the ability to think and solve problems; intelligence in the strict sense.
  • Sentient life has achieved sentience. Sentience is awareness, including the ability to experience pleasure or pain (or analogous drives and experiences) and make predictions about the future. A sentient being is sapient to at least some degree, and sentience is, in turn, a prerequisite for sophonce.
  • Sophont life has achieved sophonce. Sophonce is sentience and sapience with metacognition: self-awareness, including self-reflection and the ability to think about one's thinking.

"Planar Sophonts" in Trigate parlance are beings who are sophonts and have spread their society and civilization across more than a single plane. All sophonts that are members of the Planar Council would be considered a Planar Sophont then, as opposed to being such as the Cranifer that may exist across a numerous number of worlds but have failed to create any meaningful civilization that extends beyond a singular plane.
