Rite of Pure Thought
This procedure was considered an extreme measure even amongst the Techpriests though it has become an accepted practice over the millennia. It involves the replacement of the right hemisphere of the brain, which contains the creative, emotional and illogical centres. This area is removed and a Cogitator is placed within it which is directly linked to the left hemisphere of the brain.
The Rite gives a devotee pure thought and clarity, thus freeing them from the distraction of emotions or any sense of self-preservation.
