Shiejling and xlazing are two ways through which supergods can attack each other; they are considered the most extreme forms of their art, and other supergod attacks are sometimes characterised as just a superposition of shiejling and xlazing. They operate on forcing an intersection between the supergods' godsmokes such that two parts of different supergods pertain to the same logical theories, following which parts of the supergod logically contradict and force explosions in a way that can benefit one supergod or the other.

Shiejling

Shiejling is a narrowly focused attack, aimed at concentrating the full omnipotent2 power of a supergod onto an omnipotent1 component of the other supergod, which results in much more harm to the target supergod, even taking into account that it must be repeated infinitely many times (in the Local Cohort, this is known as Langesis' Principle).

During shiejling, the initating supergod compresses several of its subcomponents (known as a metaphyst) into a group of mutually-supporting facts pertaining to a single logical theory, ranging in size from a few subcomponents up to large swathes of the entire supergod. This metaphyst then in turn intersects and contradicts with an omnipotent1 subcomponent,which resolves in favour of the initiating supergod exponentially probably due to most facts about that theory being part of and chosen by the initiating supergod.

Done incorrectly, however, the infinite repetition of shiejling required to incapacitate the other supergod means that any mistake can compound infinitely, breaking several of the initiators 'physts and exhausting it. Mid-shiejling, the logical volume of a supergod is compressed, which can lead it vulnerable to being countered with xlazing.

Xlazing

Xlazing is a broader, more powerful attack, but dangerous and typically only ever employed by a supergod that is confident that it has the upper hand in the fight. Xlazing, in its purest form, involves one supergod fully intersecting or being intersected by the other supergod; at this point, it enters a state close to godfire, with the goal of forcing the other supergod, which is already exerting, to fully ignite.

Done correctly, this leaves the initiating supergod almost unharmed, with the other having its individual particles fragment; however, it is easy to miscalulate, at worst the initiating supergod xlazing itself.
