(Solrain Core) A DSS that was decrypted on 2.26 included something that appeared to be the date 3674.3.9. It appears to be using the Sorian Standard calendar — which would make the date 3136 BT. We asked Professor D. Karr of the University of Solrain at Sol Core (USSC) to give us a statement on the find.
“It’s pretty impossible to make any judgement on this. If this is authentic — and if, in fact 3674.3.9 is a date and not some other kind of counter — it would be the oldest piece of history found to date. Right now, our verified history starts at 2690 BT. Anything before that is legend. So this would push that ‘history’ back more than 500 years. That being said, it would not not be very usable history since this just appears to be a system diagnostic of some sort. Not sure how that could add to our knowledge.”
When asked about the mention of ‘TRI,’ Professor Karr responded, “Well . . . if ‘TRI’ means The Reconstruction Initiative or TRI Corporation, then 3674.3.9 isn’t a date. If 3674.3.9 is a date, then ‘TRI’ has some other connotation. It’s that simple.”
