We demonstrate that all enterprises of embodied cognition, ranging from the 'simply' cognitive to the conscious, and from the individual to the mechanical, institutional, and composite, are susceptible to induced patterns of hallucination, panic, and exhaustion on challenging landscapes of fog, friction, and deadly adversarial intent. We further argue, in consonance with C.S. Gray, that dreams of 'Wunderwaffen', 'Wundertaktik', and implacable 'Reflexive Control' are themselves siren hallucinations.
