Chapter in book: "MERRYE SYNDROME"
Peter: "The Merrye syndrome, so called because its only known occurrence is among the descendants of one Ebenezer Merrye... a progressive age regression... It is believed that eventually the victim of the Merrye syndrome may regress... to a pre-human condition of savagery and cannibalism. Many authorities do not accept the existence of the Merrye syndrome. Of course, there is no Merrye syndrome anymore." (0:01)
