Synopsis
A man who views space time as a hobby meets up with another man who works a space time researcher and gets himself caught and shrunk into a small box. No one else can see or hear him, but because the hobbyist thinks about space time the same way the researcher does, the hobbyist attempts to free him with a machine he has developed on his own to explore dimensions. The hobbyist's friends think he is crazy so when he succeeds in freeing the tiny researcher, he takes the man to introduce to his friends. The man regains his normal size before they see him and they are only finally convinced when the small box attempts and fails to trap the hobbyist within it.
