Those computations must damage or why wouldn't they use themselves?

A feeling of incursion,forced labour,theft of intellectual,psychic and metaphysical property - a Violation..and a life in ruins - would more aptly describe it,quite frankly.You know how they say:"You reap what you sow"..well one day someone who has said farewell to the flesh may just decide to "Reap what You Owe" and whoever the You happens to be,shall have to deal

Just out of curiosity..
If there was some sort of breakaway group, ready to leave us all behind and join the galaxy, while leaving the rest of humanity to stew in our illnesses, famines, wars and misery, withouth as much as a backward glance...
Would it not make you angry, more than anything else?
Would these not, indeed, be representative of the worst of humanity rather than the best?
I certainly would not wish to join them any more than I would wish to join, well, a Third Reich.
Or a fourth, for that matter.

I think this is an important point. Let's say these Scientists did break away back in the 1950's (as evidence would suggest) and lets say that the story of them using this for the soul purpose of creating and testing highly advanced technologies. Then the question of "has any of this tech bled down to us?" If not then these people are pretty cruddy by any standards but their own.
They use us as test subjects, tools, and if the story is to be believed computing power. What do we get out of it? They don't have our best interests at heart, nor do they seem to care about world policies and events, if anything it would appear that these Scientists may have had "good intentions" at the start, but they seem to have been corrupted by their own arrogance. If they didn't look at us with contempt, then wouldn't they show themselves to help solve some of the issues in the world?
After digging into this topic and looking into things, I believe that a group of Scientists did break away from their respective countries in order to further scientific research in a wide range of fields. This unrestricted research may have driven them to seeing anyone not with them as being nothing more then test subjects.
I could list a bunch of good science created by very bad behavior of Scientists, but I feel that everyone gets the idea of where I'm going. I will head this off by saying that this Break away group is more than likely still working off of 1950's ideologies and social beliefs. So while their Technologies may have advanced at a different path then our own, I'm willing to state that if these stories are to be believed, that their social conduct and Mores have stagnated to the point of human contempt.
