While for the player the transition will be smooth and unnoticeable, in terms of development, the stage will end when the organism has reached a certain threshold of intelligence.

A tree, a Smilodon, and a Neanderthal walk into a bar. Each order some "Organism Mode" draught.
The three are stunned when the bartender provides each three mugs of differing beverages. The tree is the first to speak. "Uhh, barkeep, what's the deal?"
The bespectacled bartender rubs the back of his head. "Well, you're not Aware or Awakening like these two, so I gave you a pint of Multicellular instead."
The Smilodon is still confounded. "Well, what's the difference between me and him, then?" He gestures towards the Neanderthal.
"Your actions don't lead you to Society like his do, so you're Aware, but not Awakening."
The Neanderthal still isn't too sure what's going on here. "Well, can't you just make one drink called 'Organism Stage?' I'm fine with a mug of 'Sapience Stage' even if I'm just leading up to the better parts of it."
The bartender is noticeably uncomfortable. "We can't just change things like that. There's folks barely out of the Microbe Stage that are Multicellular but aren't technically in Organism Mode like you are, and making one general Microscopic Stage drink is too broad."
The short-tempered Smilodon loses his patience. "There's barely any visible difference in playing as us. Are you blind?!"
The bartender shakes his head. "No, I have transitions."

phantomhunter01: It wasn't really a terrorist attack, right? I thought it was just some crazy guy.

Atrox: Is an attack that causes terror not a terrorist attack?

Immortal_Dragon: A terrorist attack is one that is politically motivated and is intended to have a political outcome or effect on the political climate. At least I think that's what the criteria are.

TheGraveKnight: So I finally beat the Automatron DLC for Fallout 4. Despite the obnoxious farming that I had to do, it was still fun, especially at the end.

TheGraveKnight: I looked up footage of Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and funnily enough, it wasn't the design or gameplay that surprised me. It was because they actually did voice acting (minus Link because Miyamoto hates story) for the characters!

mitobox: I had a dream not too long ago involving a trip to a zoo. One of the animals there looked like a gray, bulky Stegosaurus, but the exhibit stated that it wasn't an actual Stego, or a dinosaur for that matter.

mitobox: It just looked that way because plates and tail spikes worked pretty well last time (convergence). I'm pretty sure the exhibit also said the animal was cold-blooded.
