A professor creates a time machine that will enable him to send a man and woman back to before man existed on Earth. Using the "propagation machine," they could slowly populate the Earth with people far superior to those who would come after, and the evils of the present would be eliminated. But the couple decide that artificial creation of people is wrong and decide on another option.

Genre
science fiction
Characters
unnamed doctor; two unnamed white coated attendants;
Synopsis
The attendants brought in a crazy, raving man they had found roaming through a park flashing a kitchen knife. The doctor gave him a hypo to calm him down, then attached terminals of a diathermy machine to the man's head. After a short while, he was cured of the insanity, although a strange burn mark remained on the man's forehead, just like others before him, and that remained a mystery to the doctor. In truth, the man had been on an interplanetary flight, landing on a weird planet with strange creatures that had to be fought off, and the mark originated there.
