Physician - Office Tower (Genetic)
Although a man of science, he has an obsession with mirrors. It is their opacity which interests him. He observes each day meticulously the process of his own aging. (He sees it before his eyes.) He is 60 years old and his body verifies this fact. A surgeon of 30 years, he is constantly feeling the weight of organs. His favourite paintings throughout history are the ones dealing with autopsy. He knows that the heart has weight yet he cannot feel its weight in his own body. He is aware of its presence, though not all of the time. Such things as his own spleen he felt not at all. When his patients visit him for pre-surgical consultation he appears tall, thin and bent over. They do not see his arms under the white coat sleeves. When they are on the operating table they see him in a different aspect. There they see him in short sleeves, his exposed arms thick and muscular. He speaks, "Let us get on with it."
He has concluded that his mind has not aged at all and that there is the possibility of the soul transcending the body. His decision to work in Berlin was made because of the physical erasures and because of the aftertone.
