But it is not always effective, good old fashioned brute force, as No.6 found out on the day of his arrival in the village. Having become annoyed with the music emitting from the black loudspeaker, he trampled it to bits under foot. Yet the music continues to play! In Dance of the Dead, No.6 rips out the paper and electrical wiring of the telepype, which No.6 thinks has put the machine beyond usage. Yet all of a sudden the teletype whirs back into life, and continues to type out the message it had been typing before No.6's attempt at sabotage! It appears that so called, old fashioned brute force, will avail No.6 nothing!
