Recently, unusual disturbances of electromagnetic signals were experienced at increasing intervals in the centre of Vienna. The source of these disturbances turned out to be a mysterious room — a small, strange laboratory. It was found that it had belonged to a person which had disappeared… inexplicably.
Researchers tried to make sense of all the bizarre equipment they encountered in the room. They recovered some of the instruments and speculated on their function. Investigations showed that it was highly probable that the person was working on nothing less than the reconstruction of the universe. The findings of this speculation are on display.
