A window to the past: the letter that will be opened in 2223 [WE 142]


Dear readers of the future,

We find ourselves in the year 2023, a moment in history where technology has advanced by leaps and bounds. Computers, mobile phones, and artificial intelligence are just some of the inventions that have changed the way we live and work. Communications have accelerated and information is available at any time and place.

At this time, we are also witnessing social movements that support people who do not wish to define themselves as men or women. These movements advocate for equality and freedom of choice, and we hope they have achieved significant change in how society treats people with different gender identities.

Unfortunately, despite social and technological advances, we still see many bullying campaigns. This form of violence remains a significant problem in our society, and we hope that in your time, you have found more effective ways to combat it.

In addition, news of child sexual abuse is becoming increasingly common in our time, which is a serious problem that deeply concerns us. We hope that in your time, you have found ways to eradicate this type of violence and that children can grow up in a safe and healthy environment.

Overall, we hope that the world you live in now is a more peaceful and healthier place than in our time. We hope that you have found ways to care for the environment and that life is more sustainable. We also hope that social and economic inequalities have been reduced and that everyone has access to quality education and opportunities to develop.

Finally, we want to send a message of hope and optimism. We know that the future can sometimes seem uncertain, but we trust that humanity will find ways to overcome any obstacle and build a better world. We hope that our time capsule will provide you with an interesting and revealing glimpse into what life was like in the 21st century.


The inhabitants of the year 2023.
