To the beings of other planets in other cosmos not yet known to us,
to the celestial consciousnesses born in forms and shapes which we may never comprehend,
We are Earth.
We bid you greetings. This message is for you.
Our Arecibo addendum.
Our planet, 4.54 billion years in the making, has made great strides, from the cultivation of an oxygen-based atmosphere rich with life, to the evolution of a species so advanced as to erect cultures and structures of power by their own design. Economies have crumbled and been re-built, empires have toppled and been built over. Great parties have been thrown, with thousands of attendees, and each one was given their own tiny little light that they got to wave around in the dark for hours! All of our great work has finally culminated in a single message. The marriage of two complex ideologies, nay, philosophies that guide our lives and give us the strength to live in the modern era.
We beseech you, if you receive this transmission, pass the wisdom on throughout the universe. There is no need to come find us. We have everything we need right here.
