The term "prime mover" originates in the works of Aristotle, referring to "the being outside the universe." Later, St. Thomas Aquinas, when he reconciled the views of the ancient Greeks and the Roman Catholic Church, capitalized the term as a reference to God.
Portrait of a man who thinks and thereby gets things done. Mr. Jimbo Cobb might be called a prime mover, a talent which has to be seen to be believed. In just a moment, he'll show his friends and you how he keeps both feet on the ground and his head in the Twilight Zone.

Next week, Mr. Charles Beaumont and Mr. William Idelson deliver a story on your doorstep with the title "Long Distance Call." It's uniquely a flesh-and-fantasy tale involving a small boy, a toy telephone and the incredible faith of a child. I hope you're around next week at the usual time - which, depending on where you are, varies - and in the usual place - the one that never varies - the uncharted regions of The Twilight Zone.
