Discovered late 2055: a smooth grey tablet, round at its edge, glows white when marked with a stylus. Trials find the esoteric tradition of ‘writing’ encodes a ‘letter’ (message). Historical analysis now suggests these are/were projected back to a previous self, possibly across many decades. This is the first presentation of letters written and invite for new participants. What would you write to your early millennium? What would you have written?


Participants: various, from the clade of slow thought.

Curator: Prof T.D. Swann, Chair in Obscure Questions. In 2017 as he received his own letter, he was a think-tank researcher, climate advocate and sometimes letter writer.
