A Matrioshka Brain is a megascale structure constructed at atomic scale limits. It is essentially a Dyson Shell supercomputer, that uses all of the energy a star produces and all of the material in a solar system for "computronium". Because of their size, immense observational and computational abilities, Matrioshka Brains should have longevities at least as long as those of stars

This is the fifth post that I am “co-blogging”, this time with Tinselman’s Robyn Miller, who provided most of today’s links. (First post here, second post here, third post here, fourth post here.) Thank you, Robyn! If other bloggers are interested to share the forum here on any other topic, please contact me for details.

Hi there! I co-posted this Matryoshka post with the esteemed, the profound, the inexhaustable Hanan Levin (and his collection of infinite links). I now have an update on my Tinselman blog. It's true... my nesting doll research inspired me to create my own little nesting dolls. You can see them by clicking on my name.
