How do the mechanics for the transcendence victory work? I am in the middle of a long game, and in a pretty dominant position. I was working towards a transcendence victory (making a mind flower), and the AI finished one a few turns before I did.
After the mind flower is completed, how do you win? The victory page seems to indicate that I just wait... is the enemy on a different timer? If I have a lot of mind stems will I reach the end faster than the AI? It's not clear how they function.
Can I destroy the enemies mind flower to stall their progress?
