If this works, decades of theorising and experimentation will pay off, our power and resources will multiply, and centuries of hardscrabble will be at an end. I will be known as the saviour of my people.

If it works.

I activate the chamber.

Brilliant light washes over me. Eyes watering, breath caught, I peer inside the vessel, where tiny particles glow and coalesce.

I wish I could say I’m observing as a scientist should, but I’m dumbstruck. I have never seen anything so beautiful. It’s… perfect.

But like most things of beauty, it is fleeting, and it leaves behind destruction.
