The complexity of their differences called to question the current assumption that they evolved from a similar point of origin. There was suspicion that something else was at work, which involved a highly specialized and self-assembled alchemy.
Timescales were largely irrelevant anyway, as there was no linear travel through space around the surface of a planet; they could essentially balance on the gravitational field and ride it like a wave.
The more they travelled, the more advanced they became, dynamically shape-shifting and continually self-propelling themselves through space. All that was left was a set of arithmetic patterns and traces of an ideographic language.
