    One of my favorite subjects is anthropology, especially paleoanthropology and primatology. I love the idea of two societies of different epochs coexisting. Just imagine how cool it would be if high-tech cybernetic space-faring civilization coexisted with one that still lived in the hunting, gathering Stone Age?

    Guess what: you and I, we all live in such a world.

    The Stone Age People of North Sentinel Island

    Their way of life has likely remained relatively unchanged for 60,000 years. Whenever we fly over their home, they don't see helicopters and planes— they see gods and demons.

    Also, it's not really accurate to describe them as "Stone Age". But they are a perfect snapshot into human life as it was for the majority of our history.
