Effect of the Great Exile on Nebling PoliticsPerhaps no single event influenced nebling culture as much as the Great Exile. The Great Exile transformed a dying planetary civilization into a fledgling interstellar one. Previously, the ancestral nebling civilization had been dominated by conflicting understandings of basic principles, which were a major root cause of conflict. During the centuries preceding the age of exile, many ideas faded in popularity, became extinct, or were partially discredited, only to reemerge as lessons or misconceptions from the past were forgotten. The technological singularity changed society faster than philosophical and political thought could keep up. Before society had adjusted to its new powers, it was collapsing into a morass of war, environmental degradation, and political stagnation, but it was nonetheless rapidly developing the tools it would need to survive in the post - singularity age. This was the world inherited by the alliance at the end of the last war for the homeworld.Effect of the Great Exile on Nebling Politics by FrodoGoofball
Nebling Philosophical Thought and Religious BeleifNebling Views on Moral Absolutism and Moral RelativismNebling Philosophical Thought and Religious Beleif by FrodoGoofball
One of the biggest ideological conflicts in nebling history occurred between moral absolutism and relativism. Absolutism taught that moral concepts could be applied as being the same for everyone regardless of cultural background, while relativism taught that the only philosophies that could be considered utterly wrong were those that advocated absolutism. A cycle developed in which relativists were invariably successful in ostracizing staunch absolutists, but once in power quickly lost popularity. As a result, nebling society rejected both ideas. From the ashes of two diametrically opposed ideas arose two more compatable ones.
Moral uncertaintism takes its name from the Uncertainty Principle, which says that there are limits to how perfectly measurements can be taken. It rejects the idea that there are no absolute truths, but also rejects the idea that the implications of such a truth can be fully understood, because t

Neblings are an intelligent humanoid extraterrestrial race. Neblings are sufficiently humanlike that they have been mistaken for odd-looking humans at a distance, especially when in heavy clothing, though on closer examination, it is quite obvious that they are not. They are relatively small compared to modern humans, with most standing less than four feet tall and being of slender build. The few terrestrial humans who have encountered them close-up have often wondered if they are the source of tales of "alien greys", "elves", "goblins" or other fictional race ingrained into human culture, though there is no concrete evidence to support this.
Neblings are not, strictly speaking, "natural" lifeforms. Not only are they not native to Aurelia, their physical bodies are as much a product of genetic research and development as natural selection. Nebling society is fairly cautious when experimenting with themselves, so their basic
