Most of the objects in the time capsule were instantly recognizable, and the details came to him as soon as he touched them. The super-computer implanted in Simon’s brain told him that the Michael Jackson CD was from a few years before his premature demise. (In Simon’s opinion the man looked skeletal enough to be close to death, but then people were much skinnier a century ago.) The other objects included what appeared to be a huge computer – probably a ‘laptop,’ and a blanket made out of some strange natural fibre, both of which Simon was proud that he recognized before he came in contact with them. He would brag to his friends later.
But over the final object, Simon was hesitant. He considered himself a history buff and yet he’d never seen anything like it before. It made him nervous. Slowly he reached into the box. Warning bells rang in Simon’s head, and not from his super-computer. And then he touched it.
Screams of rage and frustration from generations past filled Simon’s brain, and though he knew, somewhere deep inside that the object would cause him little harm now unless he were to keep it, Simon fled in terror.
Later, after he related the story to his friends, he organized a group to return to the time capsule, for he had left the box open. He couldn’t in all good conscious, leave the thing exposed, should a child happen upon it. And then, who knew what havoc and chaos the purple dinosaur would wreak upon the earth!
