B-Brain, Black Hole Brain
|A black hole accretion disk; could such an object hold a computational substrate?|
A hypothetical mind based upon a computational substrate composed of the Cauchy horizon of a black hole.
Very little information is known about the details of this form of computation, indeed, many references dismiss this as an outright memetic fabrication towards some unknown purpose. The physical basis for B-Brains seems to be the indestructibility of information when crossing an event-horizon, and the exploitation of particular properties inherent in a Wormhole Brain.
A B-Brain based upon the roughly 3.7X106 solar mass of the central galactic black hole would rate so high as to make the toposophic scale virtually meaningless. However, given lightspeed expansion constraints, it is virtually certain that no Terragens archailect has been able to accomplish such an ascension. Instead the most advanced archailects known, the Great Archailects, use wormhole brains, which have no event horizon.
