"Well, you can't Apparate anywhere that isn't sound-insulated, and you're so crowded..."

Permalink

"We are. It's really too bad. Maybe one day there'll be enough planets to have some really undeveloped ones."

Permalink

"Are those turning up at a nice clip?"

Permalink

"Not to the Muggles' standards but we might be able to live on a wider variety of places."

Permalink

"Yeah, sounds likely. Especially if you've got good warders."

Permalink

"Protecting against technology is a different kind of specialty than protecting against Muggles seeing when they look, and it's trickier, but we've got some people who've gotten good at it."

Permalink

"Yeah, like what kind of technology things?"

Permalink

"Well, they're not checking planets by landing on them and looking, right, they scan them from cameras far away and they take atmospheric samples and so on. You've got to trick the sensors, not the people."

Permalink

"Gotcha. On top of everything else."

Permalink

"Yep. It can be done but it's a whole field, and there were a lot of close calls between when the Muggles developed all that stuff and when we learned how to trick it."

Permalink

"Oh, I bet, musta been scary. I think there was something like that when they learned on Earth to measure things accurately."

Permalink

"Huh. What can you do with just measuring?"

Permalink

"Find stuff tucked away between other stuff, of course."

Permalink

"Oh, right. In buildings with elevators we can take a whole floor and then there's nowhere for them to measure really, but lots of places are folded in the same as you do on Earth, as far as I know."

Permalink

"Elevators are neat."

Permalink

"They're a great concept. So convenient. Our Muggles seem better than yours, really. They're clean and their buildings are actually clever and they're not as stupid."

Permalink

"I still think the caste thing is silly."

Permalink

"Well, if it's the reason they're not as stupid and their buildings are clever..."

Permalink

"Why would that be the reason?"

Permalink

"You breed animals, right? Castes are breeding people, and you can get better ones than you started with."

Permalink

"You can get different breeds of owls, but if you overbreed 'em they won't be able to fly."

Permalink

"Well, I don't think our Muggles are overbred, they fly fine."

Permalink

"Enh."

Permalink

"I guess someone could try an experiment mixing them if someone wanted a lot of Muggles for some reason."

Permalink

"Do you really go around rummaging in the Muggles to breed them different ways?"
