Actually, it's a one-item museum, but some have expressed an interest and so here it is.
You remember that in 'The Story', Errol and Pilgrim talk, during the 3rd Picnic, of how Errol, as a young man came to write a short story about a computer that consumed the universe…..?
And that is indeed exactly how it happened in (this) real world. The photos below are of that schoolboy's short story. There are two versions; the original manuscript, and a version picked out on a typewriter by a one-finger typist, myself. Neither alas is complete but it is a kind of miracle that they survived at all.
Finally, let me repeat here Question and Answer22 from FAQs.
Q22. In The Story you say, you imply, that Errol, as a very young man, was somehow "guided" to write the short story that essentially describes the AllTime-Universe scenario, and that this is what actually happened to you. Do you believe that that was one of the 'arrows of destiny' from the preceding universe? And is there anything else you'd like us to believe while you're at it?
A22 I wrote that story when electronic computers were little more than a bright idea and the brightest computer on sale was a not very efficient cash register. There are no actions without causes (sorry Werner, but that's how it is) Exactly what the cause was -who knows? I don't want you to do believing about anything, but I also don't want to stand in the way of any reasonable logical conclusion that you find fits satisfyingly into a bigger picture.
