In the near future, humanity has experienced a great schism. The larger part is ruled by instinct and pleasure: they are ageless, beautiful yet wholly dependent on technology designed by previous generations to sustain them.
Having no social structure or self-consciousness to speak of, to the minority they are simply known as the Others. But into this unmarked, timeless community walks Fred, the first visitor from a far-off land. His people are the N-Ps, governed by logic, revolted by the mindless, unfettered solipsism of the Others.
In all respects a model N-P, as Fred conducts his studies, he finds himself caught in an awkward relationship with his test subjects. Fred begins to feel for the childlike members of the Dwelling he observes.
Embracing their gaudy, hyper-real life of screens and implants, Fred begins to be changed himself, even as he begins to affect the minds of these Others in ways that may not be to their benefit.
