The letters below were discovered in September 1993 in a reverse
time-capsule apparently sent from 2023. The author of this paper
cannot vouch for the accuracy of the letter contents, but spectral
and radiation analysis are consistent with origin later than 2020. It
is not known what, if any, effect will arise if readers take actions
based on the future history contained in these documents. I trust
you will be particularly careful with our collective futures!
