Once again, I am really late with my submission, but I just couldn’t let these words go by. This time I am doing them in reverse order.
The meteor struck the area with no advance warning to the indigenous population of this non-technological society.
From the ground, they could see the milky way galaxy, as well as various gaseous planets and stars, with their extraordinary visual capabilities. Even with this innate ability to peer through the great vacuum of space to the gleaming corona of distant stars, it seems the cosmic deities thought that was enough, and did not provide these creatures with the intelligence to vie the stellar vastness from a flagship of an interstellar space going fleet of starships.
This population had no desire to leave their planet, but rather just want to carry on living out their lives planet bound, yet content with their life of farming and hunting. Even the so called towns consisted of nothing more than fifteen families spread over an area of twenty square miles in our system of measurement.
You don’t need technology to be happy and content, as long as you don’t even know what it is. Just live your life as you want to live it.
