* BewareTheSuperman: [[spoiler:This is largely the justification for the pseudo-religious social engineering in Kamisu 66. The story treats humanity as an inherently violent species, which only gets worse due to how easily a PK users can use it for violence. They are considered so dangerous that, after the fall of the slave empires & raider groups, the remaining PK group decided to genetically alter themselves to make killing humans impossible.]]

* BewareTheSuperman: BewareTheSuperman:
** In the past ages, the psychics who ruled the slave empires were generally monstrous tyrants. One emperor "sacrificed" the first hundred humans to stop applauding his ascension, essentially ForTheEvulz.

** [[spoiler: Finally, it turns out that the Kamisu 66 is a slave empire in its own right, and has genetically engineered nonpsychic humans into Bakenezumi to ensure the psychic "gods'" power over them. Nonpsychic throwbacks among the "human" caste are killed, as are psychics who don't live up to the requirements of Kamisu 66' society. The Death of Shame and the Society of Love are a means of preventing fratricidal warfare ''among psychics''.

* ArtisticLicense-Biology: The novel states that annual virginity checks are performed on female students, despite the fact that most virginity tests are inconclusive and rely entirely on the hymen for evidence, which can be torn a number of ways (and could possibly not be torn at all during sex).

** In the novel, when Saki and Satoru end up making love after [[spoiler: failing to retrieve Maria and Mamoru after they ran away from the village]], Saki makes the realization that Satoru is actually thinking of [[spoiler: Shun]] while doing it, and that she's thinking the same as well. Talk about simultaneously unsettling and depressing.

* SpaceAmish/EnforcedTechnologyLevels: Though not in space, the people of Kamisu 66 follow a simple lifestyle and although they have plenty of understanding of modern technology, including the ability to generate electricity with waterwheels, they actively avoid the use of technological contraptions in favour of their innate PK powers. Flashbacks imply that they used to be more lenient with technology but changed their minds about it for some reason.

* InterruptedIntimacy: In episode 5, Saki and Satoru end up engaging in sexual foreplay after getting captured. Upon remembering that humans in their time have been genetically conditioned to use sex as a stress response like Bonobos do, Saki puts it to a halt, resolving that "we're not monkeys".
