Very well done bit of science fiction, Mario V. Farina. The writing style reminded me very much of the writing of H.G. Wells from his famous book, "The Time Machine," one of my favorites.

I'm going to go read some more of your work now.

But there are consequences, of course. This story, like several others by the author, could be expanded into a novel.
