We should have been concerned- We felt the humans were a species capable only recasting rocks at themselves and squabbling overthere hierarchies - Their history was pockmarked with
crusade after exodus after insurrection names that: casting stones at those that disagreed. Where other species rose as one, humans were fragmented
into thousands of arbitrary segregation;
We should have been concerned-
Humanity cast itself hem its biosphere into what they felt was a void. Their technolagy was primitive, bound to a rough three dimensions; the fourth was the limiter of their perception. We existed in the fourth and
fifth, and made no passes at the sixth as that was our limit. We knew our limit and we respected it as such. The humans did not seem to believe in limits. They treated them as obstacles, merely transient,
arbitrary concepts; they drew hard lines between the existent and subsisting, and paid no respect to the subsisting outside their ambitions.

Their senses and view of energies was pathetically limited. They had no conception of gravity beyond what its effect was on their limited dimensions, pulling objects of three dimensions toward other objects of three
dimensions relative to their messiness (which was a product, again, of matter existing‘ in only three dimensions).
When they freed themselves hem what they saw as gravity' s held on 'their' biosphere and began planting themselves elsewhere in what they saw as 'their' solar system, we felt we had to stop them. They did not
see the slow death of their relevant third dimension of planet as a limit. Like the other species, we felt, they should accept this limit and die.
We destroyed their colonies and some thousands eccelent ships [taking with them much of their species), and sent them a simple message in a language they could decide:

We exist in the granitic, which you do not understand. We are part of a higher set , which you do not understand. We are alone in this Paradigm. Only we understand.
Planetary species are meant fer their own planets. This is where you evolved and where you will cease to evolve in your death. You do not understand this. You are an anomalous species that does not submit to
the bounds -
Cease your attempts at colonization. Adapt, biologically, to your biosphere, or die with the other species ofyour dimensions-
Your ships are insufficient to wage war on us. "1" are fit only fer creatures such as your own selves. Understand that you are limited.
We deign to intersect with your dimensions only at You may communicate with us there if you would like to understand the proper dogma of this Paradigm.
You are a species that can only threw rocks. Accept this. You cannot threw a reck big enough to disrupt our enforcement of the dogma"
We attempted to communicate in the tone of the rulers of their divine hierarchies. We felt this would appropriately command them.
What we failed to understand is that we failed to understand three dimensions as much as they failed to understand five.
We waited. We expected no response, or if anything, perhaps a deployment of warships- Such was the fantasy of their culture. They idolized their species.
Instead, they began launching more colony ships, modified but unarmed, into their planet' s orbit. We permitted this. We should have been concerned- They landed on their own , a part eitheir planet. We
permitted this. We should have been concerned- They colonized it, adapted cyberculture to it, and moved the entirety eitheir species ente it. We permitted all ofthis as proper actions Ma species entering its
twilight when we should have been concerned-

We determined after the fact that the armories of the nations of humanity had been combined into a single charge and detonated- Their planet' s moon, with them upon it, rede the blast into a comfertable orbit near
a asteroid- Their devastated biosphere was propelled toward our point of intersection-
We exist in the granitic. The mass of the planet will disrupt our intersection with the lower dimensions and leave us blinded and powerless to stop humanity or any other lower species hem treating their limits as
obstacles. They do not understand the dogma of the Paradigm and that this is how it simply must be.
We should have been concerned- We were naive, and as consequence, we have lest three dimensions-
We received a single electromagnetic signal hem their lunar arc shortly afterthe detonation :
We have our own dogmas and dent want yours. Humanity, united, thinks this should be a big enough reck-"
