    Depicts the story of the philosopher who lives next door to a woman who annoys him by her piano playing—her piano being on the other side of the wall from the philosopher's study. In the first half of the story the philosopher has an electrical machine delivered to his house; in the second half he grows so irritated by the woman's playing that he carries the electrical machine into his study and contemplates revenge.
