I had this fleeting idea for a story about humanity becoming over populated and futuristic, and they decided to flee earth to let it heal amongst other things so the only people left where aboriginal, tribal and the amish or generally a microscopic amount of people who havent experienced modern society, we're talking the type of person who if you hand them a phone, they'll shit bricks and ask what type of wizardry it is.
There was a deal struck, Everything was reverted as if society, culture and english ever existed meaning the people left behind are without modern comfort or resourses. Nanotechnology embedded into brains and vocal cords basically removed such things so they couldnt replecate nu-humanity in the future. in a way it means they can forge their own future. but nothing is perfect.
For the first time everythings dead quiet, but you can imagine all the stuff they have to deal with. Weather modification via HAARP made impossible weather more common and changed the climate, global warming is still in affect, pollution in the ocean, trash flying everywhere, smog still drifting around, ect.
Citys are locked down almost air tight, museums are made and such so the "modern" culture is and it's all preserved. There are no lights either so the cities are dark. managed and protected by roboitics of varying sizes, forms and intellegence, slightly humanoid but there's no point in them being human, made for whatever job they are tasked to do and built to last. They don't speak human language and there's no real way to translate it either, they cannot be hacked or minpulated. Their senses aren't limited like humans are and they dont require vision or whatever. They also dont have the same emotions or feelings as humaity. 3 laws of robotics are in affect but with added rules such as not allowing humanity to come into contact with nu-humanity's science or technology, nor allow them to progress to the point where they could become like nu-humanity. (meaning extermination of people "infected") but as you can imagine things break down over time with robotics...
The weapons of those things couldn't be used or comprehended by humans in general so there's no way something like using their own weapons against them would work. It's not like there's alot of them either, they only appear to do their job and are made as needed, repaired if possible and when they "die" they dissapear into nothingness. Trust me when i say nu-humanity thought of everything tPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
