"The Feraliminal Lycanthropizer is a low frequency thanato-auric wave generator. In addition to sinewave generators, the machine contains four tape loops of unduplicable lengths, each containing textual material. The wavelengths produced create a state of high-level ferocity and austerity in subjects within approximately four yards, while the Trithemean incantations richly pervading the machine's aural output produce feelings of `aboveness' and unbridled `openess'. The overall effect is one of organic ululation, but this aurotic environment, with its sensual, undeniably aphrodisiac effect on subjects, is peripheral to the machine's essential function: to trigger states of urgency and fearlessness, and to disarmour the intimate charms of the violent child within."
