Man has not yet succeeded in creating any form of intelligent life…
Or has he?
Within the recesses of innocuous-looking academic buildings at vast universities, hideous experiments are being conducted which — if most of us had our way — we would forcibly amputate.
At least, according to Roger Kepter, a scientist and a keen pilot who stumbles upon a deeply dangerous and invasive device — one which disturbs human patterns of emotion and records the interior thoughts of mentally ill patients.
In charge of this chilling operation is Dr Spender, a pitiful and sly man with a hubristic nature. The apparent aim of his experiments is to isolate and remove negative sensations of hate and anger, but his interference with nature has devastating consequences.
When Roger meets the beautiful Nesta Crabtree he learns the terrifying truth behind Dr Spender’s previous experiments and the catastrophic damage inflicted as a result.
The threat of an unknown contamination is now in full force and is multiplying independently…
In a deeply unsettling account of science and scientists existing for themselves, The Thinktank That Leaked explores the dangers of probing everlastingly into the subterranean seams of knowledge which cannot but lead to destruction.
