Attention, timeline jumpers! We apologize that it’s taken us so long to send out this update. Unfortunately, we still have more questions than answers at this point. Here’s what we know.
At some point in late 2016, the geographical area of California began a subtle transference out of our original timeline. Since then, many people have noted family and friends being replaced by the aggressive natives of the new timeline. Outside of California, isolated groups also underwent the transfer but, at the same time, some areas within California were incrementally replaced by foreign versions.
Many prominent scientists, religious leaders, and businessmen came with us. Unfortunately, nearly none of our political representatives did. The social environment is familiar only because we watched Darth Vader or Lord Voldemort as children. Our scientists have been unsuccessfully trying to find a way to undo the temporal distortion.
To slow down the aggression of the natives, some of our scientists are considering entering native politics. We’ve also started something of a “people’s revolution” with sympathetic mainlanders. Although it’s doubtful we’ll be able to change an entire nation collapsing on institutionalized greed, we must try.
To those of us outside of California, come! California is our little spaceship of rock on this journey, although it’s not clear why. There are some theories about an alien artifact resembling an orange-haired doll and our fault lines, but we just don’t know. The boundaries of the distortion are so pronounced that we were surprised that the recent order of a Berlin-style wall included California within it. We were nearly certain that it would proceed North from Mexico between us and Arizona, Nevada, and Oregon.
Given the flurry of reactionary nationalism, though, we urge those who came on outlying pockets to relocate here as soon as possible.
Most of all, please keep your heads as we complete the transition into this timeline. We must remember our heritage and original timeline. There are the same difficulties as before, except this new timeline has fewer masks. We come from a land of hidden political corruption to one where it is proudly exhibited. We come from a place where science and nature were coming to a reconciliation to one where the alienation between them is a pillar of elitism. The mask has faded, but the fundamental structure of hierarchy and empire has not.
Many blessings, fellow timeline jumpers. Don’t lose heart, there are many of us.
