Dust Stimulation is a Sophons-specific technology on the Diplomacy and Trading technology tree with a research cost of 25000 . It unlocks one Star System Improvement, requires research in Maximized Exploitation, and allows no further research.
"Only with the most advanced scientific knowledge can one dare to start playing with Dust. The rewards, however, can be great. For instance, by stimulating Dust in a controlled environment, it can be driven to process and problem-solve at tremendous speed. This is a great achievement, if one survives it."
"Ingredients: Stimulated Dust, solar energy, planet-scale processing complexes of tunneled quantum computers. Directions: Combine, and await results as knowledge advances at a blistering speed. Caution: Remain at 2 light-years distance (minimum)."
