By the time you read this I will have succeeded. How can I be so confident? The realities in which I will have succeeded in repairing the imperfections in the continuum will be the ones in which you will be reading this log. In those I will have ceased to exist. Does this sadden me? No. There will be plenty of versions of me living on in other realities. In these I will be sad to have failed in my mission, yet happy to be still in existence. In those realities I will have returned and deleted this log.
The imperfections will have gone when you are reading this. In fact it will be as though they had never occurred. Then why I am I writing this? In the hopes that some of you who will be reading will appreciate the sacrifice I will have made.
For you, the future will be without imperfections.
