Note to Earth
It is a time of exploration and I am part of a space mission to uncover a monolith laid by extra-terrestrials on Jupiter 4,000,000 years ago. Here in space, I know I am at the forefront of mankind’s search to break through the fourth wall and use the monolith’s discovery for the benefit of the future.
Unfortunately in my search, I was being persecuted by HAL9000, a sentient computer on board that came to the conclusion that I was useless to the space-ship. He tried to rid of me and run the ship alone. But this was a mistake. And so I was forced to disable HAL.
I have now entered the fifth dimension and by the time you read this I will have completed my mission and evolved to become a star.
