The concept of Archailects was inspired by a number of sources, including the work of AI researcher Hugo de Garis, who coined the term "artilect" for "artificial intellect," science fiction writer David Zindell who refers to godlike AIs that he calls "mainbrains," and concepts from mysticism and mythology, such as the ideas of Carl Jung and the gods of Homeric mythology who interfere in all sorts of ways in the lives of mortals. The concept of moon-, jupiter-, dyson-, and nebula-sized computing nodes was inspired by Anders Sandberg's paper on this subject. The term "archailect" is a play on "artilect," "archetype," and "AI," and is a meshing of the phrase "archetypal AI intellect."
