Notes are collectible information in To the Moon and Finding Paradise. They are given after certain events happen or by interacting with certain objects or characters at certain points. After a note is obtained, it can be viewed along with its description in the Notes tab of the pause menu.
Notes often describe important details about each game's major characters and plot points, though some of them are just there as the punchline to a comedic event.
Most notes are always obtained in any playthrough—that is, they are given after interactions or events that are necessary to advance through the game. There are, however, a few that must be obtained through exploration.
