Immigrants inhabit this planet. All the settlers belong to a single species: they are born with all the breath in their bodies that they will ever need, and their molecules vibrate at a fixed rate, impervious to temperature.

Which means that species from different planets and solar systems can meet, and users have to take care to keep the entire histories and stories consistent.
