A Letter from the Future
Address Unknown. You receive a letter from an unknown person that changes your life forever. Your exercise is to write the contents of that letter. This is the continuation of this story.
I say nothing.
“I will allocate the budget tomorrow,” said my husband.
I sat down at the coffee table in the kitchen. When I knew for sure that my husband had gone to sleep, I opened the package. Below the pad was a letter. When I opened it, I immediately recognized the handwriting. It was mine.
Dear me,I am happy to be able to stop you from doing what you planned to do. No thank yous are needed.You now have an important task ahead of you. You will need to do for the past-you what I did for you just now.I know you just asked our husband to invest in building a time machine. But, I did not travel to you from the past. I traveled to you from a parallel universe.Thirty years from today, we helped the Indian space agency build a propulsion module that could transport humans to Mars at a faster pace. This led to an interesting phenomenon. At a certain part in the journey and at a certain speed, the human consciousness was able to access parallel universes and travel to certain points of time in the past in these parallel universes. We chose to travel to this moment.So, technically, I am just a part of our consciousness from a future in a parallel universe. This does not change anything in the original instance of the parallel universe that I am from. The change happens in the parallel universe the consciousness travels to. Since we change the other parallel universe anyway, we thought it would be a good idea to accelerate the development of this module. We need more data points to understand what is happening. We need to understand what happens to these parallel universe-traveling consciousnesses.I will never know but some instance of me in a parallel universe will.I could take a physical form for about 5-10 minutes. I was visible to other people when I was trying to figure out ways to stop you. But, after I take a physical form, I need another 5-10 minutes to rest and recover. During this time I assume the consciousness-only body-less form again. This leads to some interesting encounters. But, it is better for you to experience this than for me to tell you about it.Remember to share what you learn with the instance of you in the parallel universe that you will write this letter to. You must also travel to this instant in your past. We do not have control over which parallel universe we travel to.Your husband has been siphoning money from the corporation. He has been hiding it from you as well. Register an aerospace company and begin working on the propulsion module with this money.I know you can do this. You can find a rough sketch of the propulsion module along with some necessary details. You can figure the rest out.Love you,You!
