The protagonist of this satire is a human brain floating in an aquarium. The bodiless Ypsilon, expected to be an unemotional intellect, feels lonely. Beause he is lovesick over a pretty lab assistant, Ypsilon chooses not to respond to elaborate educational regiments. Instead, with the aid of a chimpanzee and a detached human hand, he makes detailed plans for an impractical escape.
