Mokupuni
CD -24°16193 III. Colony of Eden. Mokupuni was terraformed by Edenist dissident AIs in the 3500's as the site for their own surreal sessile cyber-biosphere. The surface is dominated by the Mokup-gran, a segmented creature extending in branches across the entire surface and acts as a nutrient/information network housing chambers containing DNA-based computing containing the inhabitant AIs. The rest of the surface is dominated by land corals and plants extracting carbon from the atmosphere into diamond foam which regularly ignites as the oxygen content of the atmosphere becomes too high; this creates brief cold spells resetting the ecology. The Mokupuni AIs have declared themselves neutral and rarely interact with the rest of the universe.
