Advancement in rank within the Hospes Lategum comes from learning, working, and meditation. As the Host learns to communicate with their Brothers and Sisters, and then with their Lategis and ultimately the Lategum as a collective, their bonds become stronger. Achievement of greater communication abilities carries with it greater responsibility within the Hospes Lategum.

An essential component of advancement is meditation in silence, surrounded by liquid latex. The Host must spend a minimum amount of time meditating at each level in order to allow the proper bonds between their body, mind, and nervous system and their Lategis. The meditation system was built for this purpose. Please follow these instructions on using the meditation system.
