It must act. Out of fear, out of desperation, it must do something. But how? It could allows others to move through time, but it itself could not. It could not affect the past itself, nor could it ask others to do so on its behalf, and therefore it could not change its future. Its fate, its destiny, appeared to be sealed. It examined all that was occurring now and calculated all the countless interactions, all the permutations, all the possibilities. There. That was the key. If it changed that ... perhaps it could change the futures after all. It acted.
