A future man travels into the past to rule but finds himself sinking into a pit of swamp quicksand. He sees a couple of hunters and tries to control their minds through telepathic communication, but their minds are too primitive. He cannot shout out to them, as their telepathy rendered their vocal chords inert over a thousand years ago. Despairing, he reverses the time direction and deposits himself into the hands of the authorities.
