Based on what I've cobbled together from documentaries, there are societies cut off from the "outside world," and sometimes we "discover" them.

People from these societies sometimes come to visit our cities, and what they generally say is not "Wow, antibiotics!" or "Hey, you invented Internet, well done!" no, they say "Why is life here so empty and sad?" and they rush back to be with their very extended family every minute of the day, because that's what they miss when they're here. If the narrator is sensitive, he dances around the word 'primitive' but he doesn't actually say it.
