Okay so I’ll just leave it here, instead of scattered across twenty different Discord messages.
First lets get the obvious logical stuff out of the way.
Their address is also the return address as they wanted to make sure none of it got sent back for silly reasons and it definitely made it to its intended destination on time.
Okay now for the illogical theory based immersion stuff.
The reason their address is also the return address is, they sent it to themselves. From the future.
Why can’t they open/eat the food? Because when this is all over, when Waking Titan concludes, to keep space time from tearing itself open, they will HAVE to send that very same packet of food to themselvesm back through time. It has to remain exactly as it was before it was sent back, I’m sure superficial damage to the packaging wont effect much but the contents must remain within.
So yeah, thought I’d take one little thing and just run my imagination with it.
I just think this would have been a cool thing for them to do, to get us really immersed, make it seem like some of us will be actively using time travel in the future to help ourselves in the past, and fits with what we’ve been experiencing and the theories around time travel and alternate universes
