“It is through the process of magic and believing in it that one sees evidence of it in reality,” said the Dragon Annu. With that being said, Annu invoked a spell of inspiration, and in this particular piece of art, it happens to play a crucial part for the Professor going forward in time, and backward in time, and into new dimensions of existence.
One late evening, the Professor was tinkering in his laboratory. Out of curiosity, and having a yearning desire to make some type of impact on the world, he started to break the rules with materials he had gathered over time. It started with simply combining different elements such as magnets, copper, water, resistors etc. He worked with it until in the very early hours of the morning when he fell asleep from exhaustion. Suddenly, he was awakened by a glowing light, and what appeared to be waves of energy emanating from the Hall Tree. Never backing down from his curiosity, he approached the Hall Tree and realized soft smoke rising from within the mirror. He couldn’t resist slowly touching the mirror where the smoke escaped it, when he suddenly realized it was a portal of some sort. He rushed to his table to scrambled through mountains of papers to search for the formula he had used that had made this possible.
Suddenly the portal disappeared. In frustration he cried out loud ,“Why? What happened?” while continuing to read through his drawings.
From the corner of his eye, he noticed his dragon statue, Annu, was breathing and smoke appeared to be exiting his mouth. Annu calmly spoke, and assured Professor Hectorius not to fear the moment. The secret was within the dragon.
Annu went on to explain the history and process of multidimensional time traveling using the portal. Annu enlightened Professor Hectorius about what he must now vow to do through the use of the portal. The dragon told the professor that he would be given sequences and coordinates to use with the portal, along with missions to complete while in the 5th dimension. He promised he would also accompany the professor should the mission require it. Annu made it clear that by extending their boundaries in time and dimension, they would be embarking on some risky travels, but in all cases it would be for the greater good, to provide beauty and inspiration to the world. He then revealed that the portal was to be called “The 5th Transition.”
His first missions were easy and safe, allowing the Professor to become accustomed to multidimensional time travel. They were short travels to distant times and places, where he saw many wonders of science and art and humanity. The portal allowed him to meet with great artists and scientists and philosophers, each imparting their knowledge and creativity to the Professor. This allowed the Professor’s transformation to occur exponentially providing great wisdom in a short amount of time.
Using the relics they brought through The 5th Transition, Annu inspired the Professor to invent mystical steam-punk creations to sell to the good people of our time. Many of these creations have been sold in the past few years, with the Professor always sharing the incredible stories of each piece with customers who purchased them, always with the understanding that they are never to speak of him to (UPI) United Portal Intelligence of course.
Professor Hectorius is now in a 5th Dimensional state of mind, no longer an apprentice, but equal to Annu in wisdom and magic. This is the realm of Professor Hectorius. He looks forward to sharing with you his continued adventures traveling through the 5th Transition to find artifacts and inspiration.
