The Tome of Tomorrow is a magical book owned by Father Time which would give whoever reads the book glimpses into the future in order to shape events according to their desires, although in reality events recorded in the book are considered unalterable.

Sometime prior to the events of "Smurfed Behind: The Departure", Traveler had selected Empath, Papa Smurf, Grandpa Smurf, Wild Smurf, the Smurflings, Smurfette, Brainy, and Polaris Psyche to retrieve this item, which had been stolen by some mysterious parties eager to use the book for their own ends. Father Time warned the Smurfs not to open the book under any circumstances.

Although the Smurfs were faithful in this regard as they retrieved the Tome of Tomorrow from those who have stolen it, Brainy had accidentally caused the book to be opened, and to the page it was opened, the Smurfs present saw that the entire Smurf Village was sucked into a vortex that transported them through time with no certainty of ever getting home. Empath became rather obsessively worried about this event coming to pass, but Papa Smurf tried to calm Empath by saying that even though they have no way of knowing when exactly such an event would take place, he and all the other Smurfs will do whatever they can to at least be aware of it so that Empath would know what to do if it occurs.
