It all started with a single line. You’ve all heard it: The Meek shall inherit the Earth.
Which, if you’ve an ounce of imagination/curiosity, you want to know who these Meek are?
I made them Human.
But I had them removed from Earth. One of the best/worst tenets of SciFi is that Humans in the future will be the same as we are now. Which means there are always subversive elements among us.
And since we sabotage ourselves, we would end up sabotaging others.
Hence the Meek would spike the plans of the Erwarians.
What went on behind the scenes of the Syn-En books, the meek also used their fermites to prevent technology from giving one species an advantage over another.
It’s how we’d roll when we emerge on a universal stage.
Of course, we are also a bit of a bully. Especially when we think we’re right or think it’s for someone’s own good. Which is how they coerced Nell into forming an alliance.
So the Meek returned to Earth, but no one said they’d be nice.
Until next time.
