Dear Over There ,
How are you?? Is all going well for you on your earthly nest?
I perhaps need to make it clear from the very start that I have a pretty different take on life from you. For reasons I won't even try to go into, I'm looking at your world from way over in mine. Weird, I know, but what can you do – we’ll just have to have curiosity as the basis of my interest, if that’s ok?
Right, let's get to it. I've been watching your neck of the woods for something of a while and I have to say, I'm confused. Here's the general picture: you live on a world that, from what I can tell, is pretty rare. It’s just bursting with life and potential - and better yet, self-sustaining - you could say it's extraordinary!
Mine, by contrast, is pretty plain and everything, (and I mean everything), around us is maintained by inter-local absolutes powered only by our cellular co-transience - it's a kind of symbionic osmosis ……. you know the sort of thing, I’m sure!
As you can imagine, maintenance is pretty time-consuming and can be very tiring so we have to prioritise minimal creative expression - therefore, no 'wild' life, oceans, clouds, cliffs, gorges, jungles, deserts, mountains, multi-species, or in fact, multi-anything.
So, I just don't get why you want to make life on your planet so hard for yourselves when you already have the entirely sustainable earth-kit to make it so easy and, as a plus, so variably interesting.
If something goes wrong on ours - there's a quantum crisis - and it can be touch and go whether we can re-stabilise. Yours, on the other hand, is entirely self-healing given the chance and a suitable length of time. I sigh enviously at all your opportunities.
What seems to be holding you back, as far as I can tell, is confusion in your political and societal structures coupled with a determination to hold on to old modes of behaviour which may once have been appropriate but are pretty well redundant now. Anyway, I've decided to employ a nifty little inter-dimensional multi-glass to have a closer peep. ( I think you call them micro magnifyers or something.) Hopefully, then, I'll get a bit more of an idea about what's going on and then we can chat about it. I felt sending letters would be a good way to go - an older art form I know - but I have very much enjoyed peering into some of your excellent literature based on letters and, to be truthful, it requires a lot less energy than anything else I could do. Write soon....
