Wilson is a dyson swarm in the Utopia Sphere consisting of billions of habitats and biospheres devoted to both sophont and subsophont/subsapient bionts. A similar nearby dyson is called Wallace.

Many of Wilson's biospheres are inhabited by primarily by subsophont animal and plant life forms, under optimal conditions and a stable ecology. Many other habitats are home to presapient life and freed partial provolves, some of which have established tribal communities. A somewhat smaller number have prims and low tech sophonts of all clades and categories, from hu to splice and neogen (but rarely more than one species per habitat). The habitats are very popular with biologists, sophontologists, and ethnologists. The system is linked by a medium gauge wormhole for visitors, and there are also several godweb archailect-only links for the Utopia Sphere minds and their seraiphs.
