SAS is the acronym for Self Aware Substructure. Coined by cosmologist Max Tegmark, it refers to the idea that self aware entities must necessarily exist as sub-systems within a larger systematic structure. Presumably, there are other possible complex, systematic structures than our own universe, that are capable of producing types of self aware substructures aka intelligent beings.
"Given a mathematical structure, we will say that it has
physical existence if any self-aware substructure (SAS)
within it subjectively perceives
itself as living in a physically real world." - Max Tegmark, arXiv:0905.1283

Psychodiversity is a measure of the total diversity of thought within a system. This diversity can be found in different religions, political perspectives, sexual orientations, intelligence levels, philosophies, diets etc.

High psychodiversity can be thought of as beneficial in a similar way that biodiversity is understood to be be so. Different views and perspectives allow for a greater chance that humanity will be able to successfully navigate through a crises or even day to day living. High psychodiversity makes a system more robust and likely to adapt to a changing environment successfully. In addition high psychodiversity makes for a more interesting environment. Flexible participants with diverse views are able to interact in novel ways allowing for unpredictable emergent activity. Psychodiversity is fuel for evolution.
Just as is the case with countries, companies and organizations that foster a healthy amount of psychodiversity are able to more successfully handle economic downturns and thrive.
