MENSAJE 2150: From the not-so-distant Future (2150), warnings are given of dire human consequences derived from what is now the Present. A message, a file, a voice, an indefinite presence disrupted by the non-existence of an I/You/Us, where a plea is made to be awake and face the coming times towards the necessary evolution in a more coherent way.
