This is an example of a rare phenomenon called Supreme Compression. The individual at the museum was killed when a swarm of chainsaws pummeled him. According to initial police reports his body was mangled beyond recognition. Police later discovered his body had been mangled and reassembled, obviously in a much smaller form then how his friends and loved ones knew him. By instinct he sought out an environment of cleanliness mixed with what he called the “sweet stratum of historicity.” This led him to the Metropolitan Museum. He explained his situation to the curators, who happily let him touch the objects of art as a means of restoring his body to its former cohesion. It is not clear at this point how well the healing has progressed.
