He consults a psychiatrist, trying to piece his memory back together. Gerry ran away from the institution and was taken in by Lone.
Lone was killed in an accident and Gerry subsequently became the leader of the gestalt. Lone had instructed the children to seek out Evelyn's sister, Alicia, after his death.
They were educated and fed under her care. Soon, however, Gerry learned that domestication and normalization had weakened their gestalt. He killed Alicia, and the group returned to living alone in the woods. If anything, Gerry's telepathic abilities are stronger than Lone's. His amnesia was caused by Alicia's having accidentally transmitted her memories to his mind when they first met, triggered by her strong emotional reaction to hearing the words "Baby is three".
He learned about her entire life, including her past relationship with Lone, in a split second.
After being helped by the psychiatrist, Gerry erases the man's memory of him. The third and concluding part of the novel is Morality. Again, it occurs several years after the previous part.

He discovered some odd effects on an anti-aircraft range. Practice shells fired in a certain area were all duds.
Barrows does magnetic tests and finally discovers the anti-gravity machine, still on the rusted-out old truck on the nearby farm. Gerry knows of Hip's investigation and poses as a common soldier assisting Hip, then launching the anti-grav into space and stopping Hip from saving it. He then mentally attacks Hip to make him look insane, driving him to a mental breakdown and amnesia, Gerry does this because Baby has told him that if the anti-grav was discovered, it would lead either to a terrible war or to the complete collapse of the world economy.

Theodore Sturgeon - More Than Human
What scholars and reviewers have said: "Nothing short of pathbreaking. Brown organizes this potentially overwhelming topic into a highly influential study with remarkable grace and concision. Rothman Book Award committee, Western History Association "Brown has written a history that implores us to care about animals as well as humans and to interrogate when, where, how, and why we have and have not done so in the past.
Brown makes a compelling case that animals have been central to shaping our physical, economic, and sociological landscapes For the Seattle history buff it's a must read; for the urbanist it broadens the sense of what the city is, who it's for, and how critters are partners in shaping urban life.

The answers, as Frederick Brown argues in this inventive book, say as much about being human as they do about the many creatures prowling our streets and sharing our homes.
