Welcome to the Kardashev Scale WikiEdit

The Kardashev scale is a method of measuring a civilization's level of technological advancement, based on the amount of energy a civilization is able to use for communication. The scale is hypothetical and regards energy consumption on a cosmic scale. It was proposed in 1964 by the Soviet astronomer Nikolai Kardashev.

The purpose of this wiki is to include an exhaustive list of existing and fictional civilizations with an attempt to classify their types, possible technologies, energy usage, longevity, possibility of extinction, and so on. This is an initiative of the "Kardashev Scale Theory Facebook Group".

Civilization categories of the scale: Edit

Type 0 K0 Pre-planetary Extracts its energy, information and raw materials solely from planetary resources
Type I K1 Planetary Can use and store the equivalent of all of the energy which reaches its planet from its parent star
Type II K2 Stellar Can harness the total energy equivalent of an entire star's output
Type III K3 Galactic Can control energy equivalent on the scale of an entire galaxy
Type IV K4 Universal Can control the energy equivalent of its home universe
Type V K5 Multiversal Can escape their universe of origin and explore the multiverse
Type VI K6 Megaversal Can exist in an infinite amount of simultaneous multiverses and outcomes
Type VII K7 Omniversal Traveler of all universes, multiverses, megaverses.
