José Delgado (1915-2011) was a Spanish physiology who studied mind control through electrical stimulation of specific regions in the brain. He is perhaps most famous for experiment with a bull, during which he placed a stimoceiver into the bull's brain. Getting into the ring with the bull, it proceeded to charge towards him. However, pressing a button on a remote control transmitter, Delgado was able to stop the bull from charging. The video can still be viewed today, seen here.


Using the Transmitter removes a bull's rage, stopping it from charging. However, the user absorbs the bull's rage, which can last for up to four hours.


Arthur Neilson and Megan Wilcoxson collected this artifact from central Spain in June 2015 after reports of a man who stopped a raging bull from attacking a civilian were pinged by the Warehouse. After arriving in Spain, the pair quickly tracked down the man, who was still recovering from his actions during the downside (he apparently had a strong disagreement with a brick wall, or at least that's what it sounded like).
