Re: SETI/ASTRO: MBrains/JBrains & Globular Clusters

Hmm, is the most efficient form of the mass of a globular cluster
M-brains, or would it be quark matter brains (assuming them possible)? I
don't have the time to do the calculations today, but I guess it would
be the later. So then you would merely want to use the 10% dark stuff to
bootstrap a cluster collapse process with all the necessary
infrastructure to convert the stars into quark matter and energy
production black holes.

On the other hand, no such events are visible in the past light cone (it
would be rather obvious, I think, if a cluster collapsed very suddenly
in a fairly regular fashion into a quasar-like very small object). This
seems to suggest a kind of Fermi argument against my Ouranos quark
