The planet has an old and highly sophisticated biosphere: life forms here adapt with breathtaking speed to changing conditions yet manage to do so in a way that apparently supports symbiosis with Humaniti. Gaea was the first world settled by the Vilani in the subsector; when they first arrived around -3900, they noticed that the world was unusually welcoming -- but they did not recognize that the unique array of lifeforms here were not individual species, but rather an integrated whole.
During the Interstellar Wars, the Terrans with their stronger grounding in biological sciences, believed that the planet could be a world-mind. When conquered, the Terrans renamed the world Gaea after the world mind theory.

History & Background (Dossier)
Gaea, formerly known as Apishlun (Anglic: Apishlun), is a high-population world located on the Rim Main within Albadawi Subsector of the Solomani Rim. The system is a member of the Imperium and the subsector capital.
Gaea never became a majority Solomani world, despite Terran immigration during the Interstellar Wars and Rule of Man, and this was a problem for the world during the forming of the Solomani Sphere. Pro-Imperial during the Solomani Rim War, Gaea was liberated by the Imperium in 1001. Today, Gaea remains Pro-Imperium in stance. Local society is dominated by a Vilani culture, including the Solomani population, and the world has a pseudo-religious reverence for the Gaean biosphere.
