Background Text: Catch-22 by Joseph Heller
Cedocore is mentioned on Judson Ogram Correctional Facility site in the staff section. The word Cedocore is also coded on the back or spine of the Survivalism physical CD packaging in the form of a sequence of dashes in numbers coresponding to letters of the alphabet.
"Cedocore, the maker of Parepin, is recognized by the Bureau of Morality as a Family & Country First Corporation."
The full list of Cedocore drugs is as follows:
- Hycephamitamyn-η (Opal)
- Phenylpro (Probably Phenethylamine)
The advertisement for Prozira is a flash animation showing a series of scary b&w images (mushroom cloud etc) each with a phrase. In the final scene the scary background remains but the immediate foreground around the man's figure gets colorized, and the text reads: "But it will change your mind".
The world can be a scary place But YOU don't have to be scared Prozira won't change your world But it will change your mind Prozira Make it all go away
The Cedocore homepage also includes a link to a quiz in order to determine if one is suffering from situational anxiety.
In addition to their manufacture of Parepin and Prozira, Cedocore works with the Department of Homeland Security Health Management in order to develop immunological protections.
Cedocore also uses the inmates of the Judson Ogram Correctional Facility for drug studies.
Contraindicated drugs includes Amproprax: "If you are currently taking Amproprax and have experienced unusual, severe joint pain or difficulty swallowing, please call your doctor immediately."
- "The most frequent adverse events reported with Prozira vs placebo in clinical trials were nausea (24% vs 14%), dry mouth (21% vs 14%), somnolence (19% vs 14%), ejaculation disorder (20% vs 1%), anal seepage (19% versus 10%), insomnia (17% vs 14%), increased sweating (11% vs 9%), and diarrhea (8% vs 1%). Do not take Prozira with Alcohol.
- Prozira should not be taken by anyone who plans to drive a car, bus or taxi, work heavy machinery, work in a hospital where other people's lives are directly dependent on their judgment. Air traffic controllers are prohibited from taking Prozira by law. Some women have experienced climax while sneezing. Sunlight can decrease this effect. A few patients have reported anal whitening, recurrent, persistent déjà vu and the experience that someone is in the room with them when they are alone."
(quite similiar to what Moira Waag described in the transcripts from her file at Judsom Ogram, http://www.judsonogram.net/personnel/gantry/casefiles/6455da04/witness.htm)
This could be a subtle reference to the real drugs Clomipramine, an anti-depressant which famously produced inadvertent orgasms in users when they yawned (See also: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clomipramine#Side_effects ) and Olestra, a fat substitute which can cause diarrhea.
This page was discovered from the German Survivalism single by counting the bars of the barcode, which revealed the positions of the word "Cedocore" in the alphabet and "rswtb" were highlighted in bold in the text on the inside of the digipak.
The page describes the top secret details of Cedocore's development of Hycephamitamyn-η (Opal).
