The landslide had exposed the basement and beyond, for unbeknownst to the mob of angry villagers there were chambers beneath. 

The old man had not been quick enough to retreat to his subterranean chambers to escape the collapse of his shunned home.  

Apparatus of glass and metal could still be seen set up on tables, and the archaic glyphs still glowed with a baleful phosphorescence beneath the muddy water that seeped down from above.  

In the final chamber rested the old man’s life’s work.  The trapezohedron that the mob erroneously knew had crippled the burgomeister’s son.  It was smashed easily.

The real magic comes from the knowledge that everything that is possible, or impossible, exists simultaneously.  One only needs to conceptualize it and in some unused corner of the corrosive ether, that thing pops into existence.  Then you see it’s only a logistical problem of getting to it.  

My contribution to this endeavor is overcoming the frailty of the human body.  To be able to go absolutely anywhere and see beyond all limits. 

The machine was truly fantastic and afforded breathtaking views out of its faceted windows.  For we traveled in dreams, and indeed here we could never be hurt.
