_Paradox_

The scientists of the world face a crisis. Human activity, over the course of centuries, has slowly depleted the planet's resources. Any action being taken to correct this is now in vain, as the Sun's rays are strong enough to fully penetrate what little remains of the precious ozone layer above the clouds -- this makes food production a nonviable option. Tensions wear thin as rioting and protesting citizens rampage the streets of major cities, demanding a solution; the empty promises of crooked politicians no longer satisfying their rage.

The year is 2366 C.E.

However, technology has come quite far since the old days of the television and the internet. Thanks to new understanding of subatomic particles, we can travel freely through time -- well, in theory. Due to the apocalyptic nature of the situation, there is no time to test this recently discovered knowledge. A chance must be taken to ensure the safety of the human race.

In the song, the moment of time travel initiation is 1:50.

The plan? To return to the era of the industrial revolution to warn the people then about the dangers of fossil fuel consumption and mass production.

Despite all the risk involved, the strategy works -- until the scientists attempt to return to their own time. You see, since humans were convinced to moderate industrialization, technology advanced at a slower rate, thus time travel was not discovered as early as 2366 C.E.

Therefore, the scientists could not have initiated time travel in 2366 C.E. anymore. This creates what is known as a temporal paradox.

The universe shuts itself down accordingly.

Reminds me of Portal 2!
