You know, most of the time, going to a bloody bookstore didn't kill anyone. Sure, a distinguished figure in the domain of philosophy might claim that such an action could kill the ignorance inside. Jack, was most surely not made fully of ignorance that its death would inevitably cause his.

He also didn't listen to philosophers. Not his type of guys. No offense.

Also, on an unrelated note, it wasn't a truck that killed him. Just to get that clear. It was, however, his heart that did him in, the very same weak heart that carried him into his twenties only to flip him the bird and go take a hike right when life was getting interesting.

Alas, one could say that the road to knowledge killed him. Or that death was inevitable in the quest for knowledge...or some other sort of posh like that.

He'd leave that to the philosophers. Again, no offense.

The more important question was what happened after? Why could he think? Where did he end up? Was he still alive, or was he revived 500 years later once humanity had the technology? 

Questions that not only remained unanswered but multiplied ferociously when he figured out he was an infant now. With floating blue screens everywhere, and parents with ear-tips longer than some people had fingers!

Yes...pretty normal. He was going insane.

A physicist existed in 2045, known as Rio Leon. He always believed how laws of physics operated the universe. But his beliefs were destroyed when he encountered mind-blowing and supernatural aspects of this universe, which were against laws of science.

The story expands from heavy Mystery/ Sci-fi/ Fantasy towards explosive/ Decisive Battles that alters the future and past, Which leads up to the Ultimate conclusion and Complex ending.

Writer's Note: My story is ofcourse not for everyone. It is more plot heavy than detail. This is because I didn't want the reader's imagination to be restricted. Also I don't want to stray out of the plot too much. So if you wanna complex Fantasy/Sci-fi/Action story that is easy to follow, then this is for you.
