239. Think of it as a miniature time machine

“Think of it as a miniature time machine,” the salesman explained. “The nanobots spread across your body and simultaneously create tiny wormholes that – put together – produce a stable temporal vortex. That basically allows you to travel back in time. Of course, it would be impossible to take a trip to, say, the stone age. Since the nanobots are constrained to your body, all temporal travel is restricted to your personal timeline.”

    Ha! Ha! Nice little story. “Of course, it would be impossible to take a trip to, say, the stone age.” Really? You should read my short story: Inchoate.

  9. Very interesting. I think flash fiction is great for time travel stories. You don’t have enough words to worry about paradoxes 🙂
