At first sight I thought that was an ammeter. How the heck can you
have a theoretical concept like a current source in a real-world
circuit??? What's it supposed to be doing there and why are there two
separate voltage sources for the supply rail instead of just one
common one? And why only 1volt?

See above. AFAICS, there's no way this schematic can be translated
into the real world on account of this "current source." I'd be
grateful for an explanation.
