The technocratic equivalent of the Sphere of Spirit, Dimensional Science, sometimes simply "DimSci", allows access through the Umbra, as well as control of Umbrood and spirits.

Technocratic differences

though the effects are the same, the tradition's Sphere and the technocratic Dimensional Science differ in nearly every other aspect.

Workings

DimSci is evoked in two primary methods: Space Travel and Entity Contact. The Void Engineers hold near exclusive ownership of space technology, often providing (or withholding) transportation to the realms for other conventions. Each convention has its own contact protocols, however, summoning Alien AI to power massive supercomputers, or illiciting extraterrestrial biology for their splicing algorithms.

The Gauntlet

Since Dimensional Science relies on the Consensus, the effect of the gauntlet is somewhat lopsided. Technocratic labs devoted to Dimensional Science are as open to the technocrat as the deepest wilderness to a dreamspeaker (difficulty 3), but the opposite effect is also true, the dreamspeaker would be hard pressed to conjour even a simple spirit in the technocratic sterility, and the technocrat would find it impossible to peirce the gauntlet without the sophisticated equipment and controlled circumstances of his lab. Additionally, the presence of large numbers of sleepers, who view dimensional portals as impossible, has it's effects on DimSci.
