    A loud, thounderous knock on the door distracted Michael from the action on his TV screen. He hit the Pause button on his PS4 controller, slid his cordless headset off his ears to rest on his nape, and granted his roommate entrance by shouting out the permission. Nathan, Michael's best friend and longtime roommate, opened the door, and started talking in a seeming hurry: “Listen, bro, I gotta hit the road. I won't be back till, like, nine or so. I know this comes on short notice, but it's really important. Jessie just texted...” By hearing the name of his besty's girlfriend, Michael's mind trailed off to picture her appearance, angelic to his eyes, and soon lost track of his friend's monologue. Nathan and her had been together before the former and Michael moved into their 800 square feet top-floor apartment with generous southward balcony that overlooked Zürich's skyline from the very heart of the city. Both being master students affiliated to ETH Zürich – one of the world's top ten engineering academies according to Times Higher Education World University Rankings – they could consider themselves very lucky to be able to afford an apartment in this select neighborhood of one of the most expensive cities at the time being.

With his abilities to imagine entire standalone universes and to perform exceedingly well in conceiving the most complex computer algorithms from scratch being his only talents – and also being well-aware of his pronounced introversion – he invested a greater effort into his looks. This way, he thought, he would at least make the impression of being a orderly and well-groomed person and show some self-respect. Of course had Michael's absent-mindedness not passed unnoticed with Nathan. For this reason, the latter used to leave handwritten instructions hanging on the whiteboard they had acquired for communicative purposes mostly. Yet, on this particular day, Nathan was in such a hurry to leave, he had so far not found the time to put his explanations to paper.
