A freak television reception caused, it is thought, by an inexplicable variation of cosmic ray frequency in space‐time curvature vibration, makes it possible to present this astounding record of the life and work of an eminent scientist who has yet, unfortunately, to be born. A document without precedent or value, it is based upon a fragment of intelligence flashed back from the future. Those who stood spell‐bound, gazing upon a screen in an Upper Tooting flat, fingered for a few fleeting moments the fabric of eternity. But this glimpse through an unknown window of time was not granted without penalty. In addition to the author, none of those who saw it has ever been the same since.
