* NiceJobBreakingItHero: The beings on the Highest Possible Level of Development don't try to help other civilizations, because such efforts invariably make things worse. For instance, when the grandfather of one HPLD being cured 300 hunchbacks "one hundred and twelve of them were immediately boiled in oil, their sudden and miraculous cure being taken for a sure sign that they’d sold their souls to the Devil; thirty, no longer exempt from conscription, were promptly called up and soon fell in various battles under various flags; seventeen straightway succumbed to the shock of their good fortune; and the remainder, since my esteemed grandfather saw fit to further bless them with great beauty of form, wasted away through an overindulgence in erotic activity—deprived of these pleasures for so long, you see, they now hurled themselves into every sort of debauchery, and in such a violent and unbridled fashion, that within two years not one was left among the living."

* VindicatedByHistory: InUniverse. Klapuacius meets an old philosopher called Chlorian Theoreticus the Proph, who was ignored in his entire life. He expects that future generations will discover his greatness - so he writes the book ''Testament for Descendants'', in which he calls them skeleton-kissers and corpse-lickers, who ignore the great thinkers of their own era.
