Feraliminal Lycanthropizer


Feraliminal Lycanthropizer
Shortened article from DavidWoodard.Com/feral-index.html

The Feraliminal Lycanthropizer is a low frequency thanato-auric wave generator. Known for its use by the Nazis and for its animalizing effects on human subjects tested within measurable vibratory proximity, the machine electrically generates two subsonic sinewaves - one 3hz, the other 9hz. Together, these two frequencies (one acting as carrier, the other as program) generate a lower third, .56hz.

In addition to these sinewave generators, the machine contains four tapeloops of unduplicable lengths, each containing textual material. Two of these loops operate below the threshold of decipherability (one forward, the other backwards), and two operate far beyond the opposite threshold (also one forward, the other backwards). The effect of the subsonic sinewaves on the sound of these human voice recordings is one of organic ululation.


But this aurotic environment, with its sensual, undeniably aphrodisiacal 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. While the 9hz, 3hz and .56hz wavelengths together signal a state of high-level ferocity and austerity in subjects within approximately four yards, the Trithemean incantations richly pervading the machine's aural output produce feelings of aboveness and unbridled openess.


The combination of drastically contrasting emotional trigger mechanisms results in an often profound behavioral enhancement which occurs strikingly soon (within moments) after the user enters and remains in the auricular field of the machine. This patently Plecidic enhancement is described in a study by the inventor, Bill Jenkins, as "Sensitive Disturbance," an "atomic catharsis of nucleopatriphobic anxieties and freeze-locking, thanatotic armor." (1)


Documented experiments include cases in which subjects previously unacquainted with one another are found freely sharing inner thoughts, secrets and/or vulnerable feelings, in several cases to the point of impetuously shedding the veil of clothing. Others involve extraordinary strength and detailed focus of will: a dilettante, Catalonian national using the machine daily over a period of five or six weeks eventually managed to ingratiate himself to Adolf Hitler, persuade his quarry to adopt the swastika as high totem and emblem of the burgeoning National Socialist Conference, and justify his swift departure from Aryan allies by returning to Germany in 1942 to present Hitler with the inestimable graces of the Dalai Lama.



Walter Stevens, Assistant Director of Secret Operations, a primary artery of the National Security Council, which receives its research subsidies from the NSA, has intimated to a former NSA agent that the Feraliminal Lycanthropizer was used extensively during and after the Viet Nam War as a truth serum, helping to liberate essential information from American war criminals and distraught POWs. Although Stevens cannot be quoted directly, and naming our intermediary would be a breach of trust, we do hold in our possession public domain photographs explicitly documenting use of the Feraliminal Lycanthropizer at the scene of such an interrogation.
