Oh..my..God. Are you f’in serious? lol! Hah! Geezus Christie on a cracker. That sentence is so wrong you’re lucky it did not behave as a form of anti-right, and, upon interacting with the first right thing said about the Mission such as The Mission is a listicle generating suck machine, spawned a mini black hole which would have annihilated everything within a 3 parsec radius. Utter disaster may have been avoided but there can be little doubt the Universe aged a few billion years in seconds as it struggled to accept something so wrong into it’s vast cosmic information stream. Even 2+2 = 5 and all men are free, Tom is a man, therefore Tom is not free, are less wrong than that sentence and one is a violation of mathematical laws while the other is a violation of the laws of logic. In fact both of those statements are in complete contradiction with the laws of nature as we understand them today and yet they are still less wrong than that sentence. Contemplating wrongness of such magnitude is simply beyond the power of mortal men. Even the mightiest of AIs, were one to exist (one does not) would be unable to comprehend its’ wrongness no matter how powerful are its computational processing abilities. While it is clear the wrongness of that sentence can never and will never be understood in even the most basic of ways by science could the arts perhaps have a better chance? Could someday a great artist, the greatest the universe has ever known, actually approach and even somehow convey a small measure of it’s wrongness through his or her art? I am afraid this too would prove impossible for any work of art that somehow was able to represent even a tiny fraction of the wrongness of that sentence would immediately collapse in upon itself and disappear possibly taking a chunk of the universe with it.
