Scientists conduct an experiment in which the mind of a conscious man is electronically linked with that of a comatose young woman. The youthful male volunteer initially conceals the fantastic success of the linkage because of its explicitly sexual nature. As the contacts continue the young couple’s inner experiences together become increasingly varied and complex. Inevitably, the male volunteer is compelled to attempt a rescue. His goal then is to sacrifice his idyllic inner existence with the beautiful girl by leading her back into the outer world.
