It happened in the world before ours at the time when there was every kind of technology that you could imagine, there was implants in people’s brain which allowed people to communicate without talking, magnetic gloves that you could move metal and anything magnetic without touching it, there was even goggles that you could see everything that was happening int he world by only staring around you. All of that they had, they had things that are dreams to people now.

But nobody in that time could invent a clock! They had no time they had no way to know when was today, when was yesterday! Clocks were non existent until this one day: a scientist of that day named Mark Daglone the greatest scientist of that day found the solution: when he was tinkering in his peacefully quite lab one night, he was testing and fiddling with newer gadgets that would seem magical to people of the now even though it was nothing but science of then. Mark thought in his mind if there was anything that would be able to keep track of things even though at that time nobody knew what the word clock meant. He was sunk in deep thought when at once his eyes wondered off into the corner of his lab and he stared at his left over junk that he was about to throw away from his previous experiments. He started to wonder if he could make anything of them. Mark walked over to the corner where the scarps were sitting. Took them into his hands and carried them off onto his experimental table where he performed all of his experiments and neatly laid them onto the table in a pile. He thought of a something round because he thought of the earth and what shape it was. he took a round clean cut and smooth chunk of wood that he was using to build the “automated table” that would easily fold up into a little paper thin sheet of wood. Mark took the wood and placed it in front of him. Thinking what next to do, he rummaged through his pile of scraps and found a couple of metal sticks one shorter and one longer and thought again if it matched to anything that of science, he thought of the footsteps people take. “Every step makes a second”he thought to himself. He took the metal sticks and attached them to the chunk of wood and then he looked at it and exclaimed to himself “how nice is that to look at.”… but then he remembered: that will hold it.Then he wondered “how to make the clock come to life?” he came up with a plan he thought would work. He took a chemical that they used to make all gadgets, equipment, and anything working with scientific technology, All of humanity was doomed that day, it was a day before you and I were around. It was a time when time was new. A time that we should all remember that our world may have met it’s end. If you ask me what was that terrible time: well… it is a long story: It happened at the time when there was every kind of technology that you could imagine, there was implants in people’s brain which allowed people to communicate without talking, magnetic gloves that you could move metal and anything magnetic without touching it, there was even goggles that you could see everything that was happening int he world by only staring around you.

Then he wondered “how to make the clock come to life?” he came up with a plan he thought would work. He took a chemical that they used to make all gadgets, equipment, and anything working with scientific technology, even though he could use his gadgets to do his testing and experiments, he believed in doing his experiments himself without any technology. He wanted to invent and do all of his scientific works in his genuine body.

He took electro fluid that was a fluid and when it touched. made a unit electronic and packed with technology. carefully pouring it into his big clear beaker he mixed electro fluid shutdown fluid and stirred the two together then poured it on the wood and metal sticks. but then… Mark’s heart fell at the thought he realized he put too much shutdown fluid in: the shutdown fluid was a backup plan in case the electrofluid did not go well with the chunk of wood with hands on it. Just then… the clock began ticking! He put the metal hands in the middle of the chunk of wood-Success! The first clock was invented! Careless Mark got so over exited about his newest invention, that his arm hit a chemical mixture that shut down all technology in the world named: end all technology bomb. It was a chemical which made everything that was technology be useless from the microscopic particles that was anti technology. The minute the fluid touched the clock it ticked and the clock read: shut down all technology! And Mark was frozen fast he could not move a muscle. As he watch the

clock grow and grow and grow! Until it took up half his lab! He knew that he had a big accident.

When The clock started it was the beginning of the end! The scientist was totally shivering from the fright and guilt of the invention that went so wrong, that he felt as though he knew that when the clock …it was the end of all technology and the worst part: nobody knew about the disaster that was about to befall the world. It killed his mind to think that it was his inventions from his own lab! He peered quickly to the chemical mixes he had trying to find a reverse chemical formula. But then… the clock expanded so big that the clock knocked over all of the chemicals that was sitting there. the chemicals all crashed to the floor and flowed across the laboratory’s floor

the lab began to become a wreck and a danger zone. That was it. He ran out the lab's door, He knew he needed to stop it. “but how?” Mark kept thinking. Every second was a serious moment. Mark was running far away from the lab. When at a safe distance he looked back and saw the whole lab building blow up! Mark felt lucky to be alive and decided to call for help. He was just about going to try use his phone implant in his head- then he saw it: all of the technology began to die. He saw all of the towers blow up he was on the run! He couldn't call for help because all technology was shut down and he was on foot trying to run as all the technology began shutting down and self destructing. And the towns city's had houses failing, had technology backfiring, shutting down that caused lots to get killed and injured. The world was catching fire and the world was shutting down. And everyone on that planet was done with. That is why technology is limited now because of clock and time that restricts us from delving into technology for technology can destroy when there is time that is why time and technology is two magnets to each other.
