A Penny for Them shows three imagined homunculi (a very small human or humanoid creature) within the mind, working its cogs. Two of them are working hard but against one another, futilely trying to turn cogs in opposite directions. These cogs grinding each other represent the troubled state of a mind where competing ideas flood together, making it hard to come to any decision. The third homunculus has settled against down inside its cog to take time out from this discord. Reading a book, the third homunculus nudges us to escape from the daily grind and to let our mind run free.
