Each room in the Intergalactic Sanitarium Unit has four coordinates, which describe the dimension of a standard SI derived unit in terms of the four International System of Units base units (length, mass, time, ampere). Most of the rooms have punny descriptions of the unit measure; a few rooms announce that you have "gone insane", give a score, and force you back to the beginning. The list of rooms is:

Mapping the scores to the standard unit abbreviation for the room's associated quantity, in ascending order of the non-zero numbers, yields:

This spells WHAT AMP MEANS, which in this context is the SI base unit AMPERE.
