Today's seems to be some sort of machine translation, or the work of someone working from a dictionary rather than actual knowledge of English. I wonder if it is possible to tell what the originating language is, that has triumph instead of "first," or "premier,"and Rejuvenation for "Renaissance."

They make me think of "The Ophiuchi Hotline," where the humans keep receiving interstellar transmission they can only partially decode. For many years, the bits that can be understood are found to contain technological information of fantastic value. One day, a new message comes:
