The two or three threads on that newly discovered lost tribe got me thinking.

Those tribesmen have no idea of the outside world, and we are unimaginable for them. They'll probably be extremely defensive and terrified if we showed up, just because we're unknown to them.

So, what if we're like them on a much larger scale. What if our planet is part of something that we can't comprehend because our brains don't have the imagination power to do it. You can't say it's stupid though, because that would be like sticking your head in the sand. If you tried to explain the outside world, technology, the internet, cars, industrialization, housing etc to them, they'd call you stupid, but it exists, so we can't disprove anything.

Until it's proved or disproved, there's nothing anyone can really say about it.

This is practically the story of Battlestar Galactica and the 13 tribes of Kobol.

Don't "we" cover like 90%+ of habitable world anyway?

Not sure what I mean by that, but just sort of, we aren't isolated...the only scale on which we are is galactic.

I'm hearing a steady *thump thump* from the people above me and I need some porno grooves to play on my bass to give them some background music. Any ideas?

I've had similar thoughts as well. Or what if we're just some sort of school project experiment for some higher being? It's fun to think about

i'm sure planes and helicopters have flow over their villages before, so they must have some idea that technology and other civilization exists... they aren't stupid, just isolated.

maybe an airplane is a UFO for them ^^

We'd probably be pretty scared if those 'lost tribes' suddenly showed up on our doorsteps too, even though we know of their existence.
There's only one thing we can do to thwart the plot of these albino shape-shifting lizard BITCHES!

Krikkit wars anyone? Cookie to whoever gets the reference.

Seriously though, it's only a matter of time until we get discovered by something larger than us, I just hope I'm alive to see it.
