Adventures of a Nontemporal Being

by Stuart Boehmer

There was a nontemporal being who was trying to write a story for Six Sentences. He tried lengthening the sentences as much as possible by the use of commas, semicolons and dashes - anything to avoid coming to a period mark, so that the sentences would go on and on and on; then he was struck by a thought. This presented a problem: how could a nontemporal being be "struck by a thought?" He tried to think this through, ignoring the question of how a nontemporal being could "think something through." He couldn't do it. So he went mad.
