How do you discover a place if people already live there? That would be like me going to the left of my house and being shocked that there’s a McDonald’s there.

In the sense of their society discovering another society. It’s not a surprise to see a McDonald’s in a first world country, but encountering a whole new race and continent is a ‘discovery’ in an age of relative ignorance like they lived in. Nowadays, you can scan for tribal villages with the Google earth satellites, so it’s not quite special anymore.

Don't be the product, buy the product!
