Professor Brögarius was intelligent and bright.
He wondered if time’s linear path was flexible or finite.
Time travel was his great dream,
So he built a magnificent machine,
But he made a gross miscalculation, and instead of journeying to a specific point in time, he tumbled aimlessly through the void. Because of this, no one was able to deactivate the machine. A massive feedback loop caused the power to overload, and the resulting explosion tore a rift in the very fabric of our universe. The only person with the knowledge of how to stop it is Professor Brögarius, and he is trapped in the space between the ticks of a clock. The end is here.
