The phrase "Create Influence" shows up a few times like a noun in the text, however, I'm only able to find two references in the text to it, and those are using it. I'm assuming it's documented under a different name, where can I find out what "Create Influence" actually entails? (this is specifically quoted from p225 of GM, but appears to be the same in DtD)

Causing the Condition: The Infrastructure Condition, unlike Anchor and Resonant Conditions, is never naturally- occurring. The God-Machine requires effort to prepare the way for its angels: extended actions by cultists, unwitting pawns, or even other angels to create Infrastructure. High-Rank angels can use the Create Influence to instill this Condition on behalf of themselves or a subordinate angel. In addition, characters with the Destiny Merit are always subject to this Condition.
