The tiny spaceship screeched THROUGH space at unheard of speeds. When we say ‘THROUGH space’ it is meant to be distinguished from ‘through space.’ Everything is always traveling through space from point A to B, traveling past an infinite number of points and an oxymoron in between. When we say ‘THROUGH space’ we really mean THROUGH it—Trans-Hyperbolic-Rerouted-Omni-Utter-Graviton-Hopping. Another way to put it might be traveling ‘between space’ or ‘around space’ or ‘folding space’ or ‘instantaneous travel’—in other words traveling from A to B without even touching any C’s along the way. People of lower IQ call this ‘hyperspace travel,’ but we know better than to copy such a phrase used in the works of cheap sci-fi and fantasy novels. Right? Right! So THROUGH space it is.

Or was. As the ship switched off its gravity wave resonators it stopped traveling THROUGH space and appeared eighty-five million kilometers above the plane of a yellow sun solar system, traveling just below the speed of light. Full light speed travel is, of course, impossible—any dunce knows that—but at speeds approaching that of light, time almost stops for the traveler (relative to the surrounding universe). This makes it possible to catch onto a gravity wave and travel THROUGH space, sort of like surfing. The ship slowed and its clock devices read that it was approaching real-time, relative to the solar system. All spectral measurements (IR, UV-vis, X-ray, etc.) indicated this small yellow sun would be ideal for the purpose to which the tiny automated ship was set. The ship neared the third planet and could see through its telescope eyes that this world’s environment would be perfect, with certain parts having just the right rainfall and atmosphere. The hatches on the ship opened and out poured several hundred spheroid objects about the size of your fist, scattering all over the landmass of the planet. Mission accomplished.

The ship sped onwards, collecting all matter it touched through the black cone on its front, converting the matter to energy with perfect efficiency, traveling ever faster as the process continued. As it neared the speed of light it prepared to catch onto a gravity wave and travel THROUGH space—and then it was destroyed. (Wipe out!) To be more exact, it ceased to exist in any form, energy or matter. Exactly what happened to it is beyond the thought capacity of any intelligent being limited by our four dimensional universe. (Time is the fourth.)
