A Matryoshka Brain is considered a Type 2 stellar engine, a machine that is powered by a star. The idea of a Matrioshka Brain is to stack multiple Dyson Spheres inside each other to collect all the energy coming out of a star and connect those spheres into a massive computer. It’s thought that civilizations that create a Matryoshka brain would upload their consciousnesses into the computer and live in the computer as a simulation.
