4. Keeping the memorial functioning is important to maintain the intent and benefit of #1.

5. Warning incoming travellers of what it does mitigates the possible damage done by #2.

4. If there's a memorial in space and no one knows it's there does it really exist?

5. Warning or inviting?
Okay, how this for a solution? Repair the monument, but adjust it so that it's "mind rape" effect only works over a distance of a hundred metres. There is a clearly marked activation button, good for one play per push.

Place space buoys (buoies?) that describe the monument, it's location and how to activate it. Inform visitors what to expect in detail.

Both a warning and an invitation. Academic scholars and curious tourists alike will come and experience the monument, word will spread.

With consent, there is no rape.
