Microstory 54: Continuum Transfunctioner

The Continuum Transfunctioner is one of the oldest inventions in the history of the Universe. It was first created by one of the last remaining survivors of the very first populated galaxy, the name of which never made it into lasting records. The inventor diffused the plans for the Continuum Transfunctioner into an interversal conduit. When someone unwittingly comes across the plans, they find them to be so cryptic and complicated that the resulting device never turns out the same way twice. In fact, they usually misinterpret the plans to be original thoughts. Because of the cryptic plans, and since the Continuum Transfunctioner has so many different purposes, the replicating inventor ends up only ever discovering one major purpose. No one has ever realized quite how versatile the invention is. It is powerful enough to destroy, reconstruct, or replicate the universe itself. It is also responsible for minor inventions like tarot cards, magic 8-balls, and paper fortune tellers.
