The shell would be vulnerable to impacts from interstellar bodies, such as comets kardashsv, meteoroidsand material in interstellar space that is currently being deflected by the Sun’s bow shock. The form of ‘biosphere’ which I envisaged consists of a loose collection or swarm of objects traveling on independent orbits around the star. Retrieved from ” https: When you enter the realm of theoretical physics and start talking about the Kardashev Scale, that’ll happen.


Not sure we yet have the words to describe how advanced this stage karrdashev be. Past population United Nations estimates Past and future population 1 population milestones Future population. In Dyson’s original paper, he speculated that sufficiently advanced extraterrestrial civilizations would likely follow a similar power-consumption pattern to that of humans, and would eventually build their own sphere of collectors.

Realize that in the old days, you had competition between tribes.
