This leads into the story of Dr. Hammurabi, the mad professor who measures the difference between dead and alive and, applying that measurement to his own life in the plus ratio, becomes "hyperalive": the drabbest circumstance sears the eye with psychochrome colors, movement is through an easy field of pellucidant blood, beset by ability. He later applies the same measurement to something dead, but toward the minus, making it "hyperdead": sand under the skin, waiting room dust, and thought by court notification never received. Inevitably it occurs to him to measure the difference between hyperdead and hyperalive, applying this to his own hyperlife in the plus ratio and thus becoming hyperalive to the second power. By the time he has reached hyperlife to the eighth power, he is a blinding magenta globe that ricochets around like a pinball.
