Four to five medical school students are huddled around a hospital bed. Every now and then their brilliant young teacher says a few words which cause a score of penciled notes to be recorded. Every sound and every absence of sound is interrogated. All of the student’s eyes are fixed on this resolute man. The very breath of the stillness in that room that night gave them Pause. No one speaks a word for they are all entirely given up to thought. With just a few plain words the teacher describes the problem and solution. Intellect has done its divining work.
