    Exclamation My brief twenty-minute something

    "What a strange machine: My jaws have only to finish
    chewing a bit of bread and meat—and again the
    emptiness contains something. Again between my
    temples—rising and falling, falling and again rising—
    there is a stubborn and ineradicable thought. Or rather,
    a paroxysm of thought. Today my brief twenty-minute
    something found me by a high white wall with names
    half plastered over and immured."
    Autobiography of a Corpse, Krzhizhanovsky

    Could anyone tell me the meaning of the underlined phrase? I've written the preceding sentences that might give you some idea about it. Thanks in advance.
