LIA HADDOCK: (V.O.) Then there's Dr. Oskar Totem. The young neuroscientist in whom R.B. Villard invested in, and felt so betrayed by before congress. Oskar Totem worked in a private lab based out of Sydney, Australia, before being named the head researcher at Limetown. He had graduated at the top of his class from Pomona College in 1994, again for his graduate degree from Harvard, finally earning his doctorate in neuroscience from Princeton. Dr. Totem had worked in at least three different labs before landing his final job in Sydney. He has been universally described by sources as "brilliant," but also "volatile" and "difficult to work with." What cannot be denied is his almost childlike optimism in the field, a trait seldom shown publicly in the rigid confines of research. Played here is a clip from a speech he gave in 2002 to the International Neuroscience Winter Conference in Solden, Austria...

DR. OSKAR TOTEM: ...Because I am an optimist when it comes to my fellow man. I do not think we are as limited, or as powerless as we sometimes feel. We shouldn't look to the stars and feel smaller--we should look to the stars in defiance and be able reveal the power, the magnitude of the uniquely gifted human mind. The HUMAN mind. There is a mystery there we must live in, must thrive in--it is there, in the darkness, where we will find the light that unites us all. Yes, I am an optimist when it comes my fellow man--and I think you should be, too. Thank you.
