Mission: Earth "The Enemy Within"

Voltarian Censor's Disclaimer
The Crown refuses to take any responsibility for the effects that this highly fictional account may have on anyone who is gullible enough to believe that the planet "Earth" exists or that any of the ridiculous actions occurring thereon have anything to do with accepted fact.
The pretentious attempt to weave the names of a few actual figures, such as Jettero Heller, into a completely fabricated invention to give it the appearance of credibility is the worst form of dramatic license. That it also claims to be the "prison confession" of an admitted assassin whose entire life was devoted to lying, stealing, blackmail and every other form of criminal mayhem should itself be sufficient warning.
Therefore, anyone undertaking even a cursory reading of this collusory yarn does so at his own risk.
The so-called planet "Earth" does NOT exist and NO one can produce ANY evidence to claim otherwise.

Voltarian Translator's Preface
Hi again!
As long as the Royal Publishing Code (Section 8) requires that any translated work "be so identified... by the licensed translatophone," I shall do so.
This work has been translated from Voltarian into your Earth language by yours truly, 54 Charlee Nine, your dues-paying Robotbrain in the Translatophone.
How I translated it for a nonexistent world speaking nonexistent languages is no real feat. I also interpret political speeches. And you may consider this boasting, but I can also translate judicial opinions.
So you see, I'm not required to correct fallacies and misconceptions. I just translate. It's when I run into vocabulary problems as I did in the last volume with hyperluminary (faster than light) phenomena that I am obligated to bring it up.
I have another such instance in this volume: electrons.
Earth scientists like things that go round and round, such as rats, wheels and politicians. So they think electrons are little "things" that whirl around other "things" called atoms.
Don't tell anybody, but they're wrong.
At some later point, they will find out that electrons aren't anything but motion. That's all. Nothing else. Just motion. The problem is that few know what motion is. If they did, they'd crack the "Einstein barrier" and come up with some solutions for a change.
So when you read in this volume how a machine "shifts electrons," just remember that it is another example of Earthbound, Neanderthal science.
As before, I am providing a Key to this volume. Don't let it be said Robotbrains don't help.
Sincerely,
54 Charlee Nine
