Type I: a Type I civilization controls the resources of an entire planet (weather and earthquake control, plus exploration of an entire solar system).
Type II: a Type II civilization controls and directly uses the power of its sun and begins to colonize nearby star systems.
Type III: a Type III civilization controls and uses the power of an entire galaxy.
Type IV: Type IV is the larger, cosmic commonality, the generic "civilization" of which aliens speak. Type IV civilization utilizes negative and alternate cycles of hyperspace in order to reach back and through all intelligent life forms to preserve the peace and secure the most enduring inter-alien ecology. Type IV civilization is able to exceed technology and can resonate in the very nature of phenomena surrounding us. Presumably, this is more noticeable on a galaxy supercluster scale yet extends into all surrounding communities.
Type V: a greater type V population is so advanced that it is (or was) able to hyper-dimension from a previous universe cycle into the current one via alternate cycle gravitic resonance that can be effected in ± light speed ways (this isn’t as complex as it sounds). Type V populations resemble Type IV populations but are of longer duration and have a deeper awareness of the continuum. Some can be so advanced that they inter-dimension with aliens originating among a succession, or continuity, of previous universe cycles. Nonetheless, a kind of mortality and larger, alternate-cycle conservations exist therein.

Everyone should read the comments from the source website. Lots of questions and answers discussed over there.
including the observable universe being 250x smaller than the unobservable because of expansion and the restriction of the speed of light.
Once you get past the God/no God arguments.. I found the most interesting comment was if intelligent forces were at work in creating this super structure.

It was organized by a super advanced race. A kind of gated community for the Universe's elite species.
Just_a_Guy_Named_Joe - reply to - RoG™3 hours ago Yeah, but what if you're right? A super-advanced race that wants to beam out a message to the universe? That message being "We are here, we are here, we are here..." 9 simultaneous GRBs from 9 gravitationally locked galaxies could not be a coincidence. But it could be a messsage....
...cue Twilight Zone theme....
