Isolation/flotation chamber
    #11319213 - 10/25/09 05:26 PM (8 years, 8 months ago)

Anyone been in one? I think it would be awesome floating in space with your thoughts.
If you dont know what a flotation tank is, it's basicly a tank filled with like 12inches of water at exact body temperature and damnload of salt disolved in it. When you lie in the water you float on top and don't feel the water much because it's at your body temp. After a while thoughts start to set in and later people may experience trance or something. Complete darkness and isolation from all stuff.

It could be worse. A woman could cut off your penis while you're sleeping and toss it out the window of a moving car.

Ah, that explains it.  Typical know-it-all noob.  We get a few thousand just like you register here every year.  They try a few grows, fail miserably and then after a few months or one bad trip, go back to sniffing glue, never to be seen again.

We have a basic pf tek that's idiot proof enough for noobs to get fucked up with their friends. 

Mycologists on the other hand grow for the love of growing.  They want to experiment with various species, substrates, and fruiting environments. They'll move on to isolate strains, attempt hybridization, and in general treat cultivation as an artform, rather than a chore that must be performed as a means to an end.  They'll work twice as hard for a ten percent gain, just for the love of perfection.  These are the ones who will isolate strains, not the dumb fucks who treat mushrooms as a drug, or even worse, a pathogen, as if mushrooms cause disease.

I did it once. The lady specifically said "No LSD or Ketamine" so i'm assuming she's either hip to it or have had too many people try that.

I want to go back with DMT.

I did it two summers ago. It's pretty awesome if you're into health spas and relaxation therapy, and even more so if you're into meditation, OBEs, and, Lilly. :mushroom2:

This thread reminds me of my huge desire to do this.  I remember when I first heard about this I discussed this with my bro and his wife.  She was like wtf? isn't that that thing from the weird movie?  And I was like, I don't know wtf you're talking about.  Then like a week later that creepy ass movie came on tv.  That movie is so bizarre.

Anyway, I've now gotta plan a trip into Florida to make it to the closest one in my direction.

Anybody know the general pricing for this type of thing?  In OMR's thread it was $90/90 minutes.  Anybody know if that's typical?

Let that which doesn't matter truly not matter.

I read it's around 40$/hr.
And does somebody know, how many KG of salt per Liter of water should be disolved to keep a person a good float?

I'm quite sure it's something like 800Lbs for the typical single person "samadhi" type unit(I'm unsure of the weight per volume formula).  On another note, I specifically remember reading that Lilly found 93 degrees to be the perfect temp, not exact body temperature.

Never been in one myself.  Want to, of course, but I would probably want to explore often and for long periods which might prove a bit too pricey.  Sometime perhaps.  It'd be super to own one though.
