The Monsters

Timespace. Time and space.

If one looks at the problem correctly it all makes sense. Timespace is infinitely flexible. It can be squeezed to a point or stretched to infinity.

My discovery makes the stars as accessible as the next town. Mankind need not perish in that far day when the sun dies. There's an infinite number of worlds and perhaps an infinite number of species that humanity could colonize and exploit as we exploited the previously unknown parts of the earth.

I chamber a round in my pistol.

What I know is too dangerous. It must never be shared.

Perhaps - or perhaps an unfortunate moment of conscience...

Well... if we can get to it, that opens the door for it to come to us. Seems an eminently reasonable response.
