No one would have believed in the first years of the twenty first century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by an intelligence greater than man's and yet as mortal as his own; that as men busied themselves about their various concerns they were scrutinised and studied, perhaps almost as narrowly as a man with a microscope might scrutinise the transient creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water.

With infinite complacency men went to and fro over this globe about their little affairs, serene in their assurance of their empire over matter. It is possible that the infusoria under the microscope do the same.

Yet across the gulf of the River Severn, a mind that is to our minds as ours are to those of the beasts that perish, an intellect vast, cool and unsympathetic, regarded this world with envious eyes, and slowly and surely drew his plans against us.
