Dyson Node
A dyson sphere made mostly of computronium and dedicated to processing needs, as a submind of a larger archailect. Such megastructures (such as linked Jupiter brains) are part of a larger archailect; connected via interstellar wormhole buses to other nodes. Generally there will be shells concerned with non-processing functions (manufacturing, maintenance, defence, wormhole bus control system) as well.
