   This would seem to be, in a sense, straightforward, as a transmission from a
   character displaced in time and space, trying to communicate with humans. The
   strong sender does not interact well with our languages or time sense.

   Thus, the message breaks down into:

   END	= End (English)
   SI	= Yes
   EOS	= End of Segment
   SEUL	= Alone? (French?)
   E	= And (Italian)
   I	= I (English)

Nice try, but it's really Lower Slobovian for ``I have a bridge for
sale.''  However, there are some who say the answer lies in the
following passage from the Codex Stultitiana:

Moe: It's Morse Code; take it down.  Well, what does it say?
Larry: Dit-dit-di-di-dit.  Dit-dit-di-di-dit.
