Arthur Dawkins is a young and brash Timeologist, willing to go above and beyond in his bold study of Time. His research has led him to where Time was invented: Egypt.
Due to the magnetic fields generated by the arrangement of the pyramids and the Sphinx, a “Time Bubble” from the year 1983 is created right in front of Arthur. Normally a Timeologist’s dream, this extremely rare phenomenon unfortunately transmogrified directly around his right arm, severing it instantly.
As quickly as it appeared, the Time Bubble pops and takes Arthur Dawkin’s severed arm back to 1983.
1997: 30 Years Later—
Arthur has retired from the field long ago; Timeology is a young man’s game. He still publishes several highly regarded articles a year, much of it focused on other victims of sudden Bubbles in Time. Again and again, he has witnessed and researched accounts of other people or body parts turning corrupted and wicked by sudden Time Displacement.
So he knew this day would one day come.
His severed arm, fueled by misguided thoughts of revenge and 14 years of Time Radiation perverting its very being, has finally tracked him down. It seeks answers Arthur Dawkins cannot give— in fact, questions no one can answer. The severed arm wonders “why”, why was it stolen away by the Time Bubble, why has it grown into such a monster, why can’t everything be back to the way it was back in 1967…
Arthur tries to explain that he feels the same way, but the ravages of time have left the severed arm unable to comprehend logic and reason.
Fortunately, Arthur has had 30 years to prepare for this encounter, and the severed arm has only had 14.
