I really liked the idea. A technologically advanced human group studies a less advanced one & the less advanced one sees them as wizards even though it’s actually sci-fi stuff. That dynamic was very interesting. I didn’t love the writing, though, I kept almost falling asleep while reading. I think it was the pacing and so much exposition. 

“Know thyself, the wise man wrote, and yet I know myself, none better, and the knowledge gives me no power.”

“In my blackest pits of despair I always find God and call out for help, because only an omnipotent outside force could possibly move the stone that is pressing me down. And God walks away, single footsteps off into the collective unconscious. He doesn’t care.”
