Three sequences of about five minutes follow each other. The first one, Base 12, presents the idea that in the distant past men had six fingers and two thumbs, relying on paleontological research and examination of the duodecimal system. The second, Corpus Callosum, assumes that evolution will lead mankind to six fingers and two thumbs, more convenient for the practice of painting. The character then considers the changes that this evolution should make to the brain. The third part, Researcher Seeking, stages a researcher at work, who responds with great reluctance to an imaginary interview. He questions the possibility of popularizing his research on the six-fingered and two-thumbed hand, denouncing the worry of general public for the practical applications of research.
