A man foresees his own death. He begins by expecting an ending, and, later, interrupts himself as the end begins or appears at least on the verge of beginning. As he awaits the scene during the final month of his life, with which his mind has confronted him repeatedly, he recalls the appearance and development of his telepathic powers, narrating to the reader scenes from his past wherein he has had instances of both insight and foresight.
