Fast drug then ?

A natural induced hibernation that comes from eating certain foods.

A society that was much higher TL that turned over all the decisions to computers and the computers had a breakdown which lead to lower living creature TL.

Or the Computers didn't break down, they just raise ( I mean care for) the living creatures in such a way that eating, making more babies and such is all the living know and the computers are forbidden (by programing) to stop them.

Or they are all plugged in a nice TL-3 sim till they learn to play nice with other starfaring nations and maybe are used as an example of why you don't screw with the Imperium or maybe just HIM?

Cool [Referee] Because I am all salty like that.

In addition to not sleeping, though, since there is the jobby-job involved I will be crashing after this. Or lurking and fighting my inborn urge to stay jacked into the net.

That previous post of mine, yeah, that right there insta-ass-pull, now in three-dee. Like our "not" protagonist said about his fierce and deadly style, Boxcutter "I made it!". (it's at 4.00 minutes for the impatient)

Wait a minute... does that mean that that scenario is now official canon, or not? :P

I'm seeing a combination of Brigadoon and people with birthdays on 29 February ; Sphic hasn't gotten above TL-3 because they're not awake long enough to make much progress in any one cycle.

Default Trillions of Natives

These could just be the natives that live in MIB Agent K's locker


"All Hail K"

No, it is "All Hail, the Mighty Sparks and The Chair!"

I will either go with HI&RM putting them in sim coffins or the hibernation thing. I will post when I am sure, but I can't lie I am leaning toward the first, but I may save that for another world.
