Soma ® felicific

soma: a happiness stimulant (from Brave New World by Aldous Huxley)


felicific: causing happiness (from the Latin felicitas meaning happiness)


Cube ® block ® stone ® calculus

calculus: medical term for a stone in the kidneys or gallbladder


So, “Soma Cube » felicific calculus”. 


Note: Just mentioning felicific calculus, literally a calculus that causes happiness, seems to provoke an odd reaction from students.
