From what I read, Prof was sitting around doing plays on words
and "Lerxst" is a takeoff of "Alex"

It's apparent on the "Hemispheres" album, where one of the subtitles
of "Cygnus X-1" is called "A Lerxst in Wonderland"

(Get it? "Alice [Alex] in Wonderland" versus A Lerxst in Wonderland?")

Always the jokers, they are. Laughing
