All memory, all will, and all consciousness, must vanish. But no permanent damage is done. The moment we raise the barrage, the man can recover, though probably he will have a great deal of amnesia and so will not be able to remember why he had come. Of course, if he was too long exposed, his recovery would be dubious.'
