Flash Fiction Challenge Entry | Matchstick, Shoe, Levitation

Dr. Mark Hedge was ridiculed in the physics community when his “Mentally-based Theory of Gravity” was released.

“Dr. Mind Over Matter” they called him.

He claimed the ability to move small objects with his mind: toothpicks, matchsticks, paperclips. Of course, no one had seen it.

“The process disrupts recording devices,” he claimed. “And my assistants have terrible timing. But I’m working out the problems and should soon be able to prove my work to my colleagues.”

When he arrived at the International Conference on Physics Science and Technology, his peers laughed, until they noticed his shoes not touching the floor.
