|Book of Consolation: the sad truth of this world, by Mr. Second|
|The world, in which we live, should not have existed. I have always felt it, but then could not explain why it was so. Now I can.
I was engaged in the deciphering and translating of this book for many years before I decided to give it to the world. There are doubts even now, the cause of which there is no reason to describe. Presently only one thing is important: I cannot keep this knowledge only to myself. Many years later, I am nevertheless transmitting the “Book of Consolation” to the world, and letting fate decide whether it was the right choice.
