One night I heard a voice talking to me through my door. I was told to enunciate the Morality of the External Conqueror. Without really knowing anything about it, I said: A planet which isn't controlled can be claimed by anyone who comes along. A planet which is being controlled by the native species can't be claimed, only conquered. Anyone who conquers a planet which is being controlled is Immoral and is not allowed to exist in space. Anyone who conquers by killing the planetary controller is Universally Immoral and must be exterminated.
As a member of the native species, I'm also controlling this planet by guiding scientific understanding and development.
