* {{Irony}}: The viewpoint characters discuss what they should do about a planet of meat-based intelligences (humans). They decide to ignore the "meat", and then talk about how lonely the universe would be if you couldn’t find alien life.

* HumansAreSpecial: Humanity is apparently the only sentient race known that is entirely corporeal for their entire existence.



* StarfishAliens: Apparently, all known aliens are EnergyBeings: there is ''one'' race that undergoes a "meat" stage, but ascends late in life, and another that is partially meat. The explorers certainly consider the meat this: meat communicate and entertain themselves by squirting air through their meat and flapping their meat at each other, which meat shouldn't be doing '''because it's meat.'''

** {{Hypocrite}}: The two explorers talk about how a "rather shy but sweet hydrogen core cluster intelligence" wants to get back in contact with them, because "Imagine how unbearably, how unutterably cold the universe would be if one were all alone." This little exchange happens not a paragraph after the above decision.
