Witches’ Cradle and ASCID

Witches’cradle and ASCID: A torture device from the Inquisition becomes a tool for altering consciousness.

According to the historical accounts of some witches, Inquisitors would place the accused inside a bag that would be strung up over a limb of a tree. The ASCID (Altered State of Consciousness Induction Device; Masters and Houston) is an updated version. The pendulum-like swinging effect can produce experiences of an altered state within the first 20 minutes.
