"Pauli's Fallacy"

No two objects can occupy the same place at the same time. So I thought until yesterday.

I was driving, a standard pizza-delivering college dropout. Meanwhile, across the multiverse Lord Eaglesham McGrane-Enrich XLVII folded time and space without proper charting, accidentally merging with me at the corner of Federal and Commercial.

I still schlepp Papa Johns around. But I know things. Eaglesham's esteemed family tree. His dire fiscal straits. The forbidden dimensional geometries he plumbed.

Why flee so recklessly? I have glimpses. Something vast, hungry, eternally patient. He knew it wouldn't stop until it found him.

Or now, rather, me.

This is great. If I met that character, I'd offer him some of my homemade ale, "Rylean Rotgut."
