Sensory Deprivation?
    #6417200 - 01/02/07 03:07 AM (14 years, 4 months ago)

Since my shroom sources have once again withered away for an unknown amount of time, I began prodding around the net for some alternative sources of enlightenment. I was wondering:

Has anyone here attempted a sensory deprivation experiment in their homes? In a bathtub or something? I was just wondering if anybody had, and if so, whether they could provide some information on the matter.

SD is what it says it is. You are depriving yourself of your senses. This means that it is dark -> no visual sense, quiet -> no auditory sense, warm water (usually around body temp) -> relaxing, and less physical sensation, and you're not eating or smelling anything.

I have read about people going into SD chambers or whatever, but I think it would be difficult to achieve in home. However, I'd heard it can lead to some OBEs, mild hallucinations, etc. It really depends on a deep mediation.

this is a subject i am very interested in, so much so that on the 9th of this month i will be travelling with my g/f to experience one hour in a sensory isolation chamber at edinburgh floatarium in search of natural enlightenment.

Sensory isolation chambers are sound proof, light proof and filled with high concentrate salt solution. Also the water and the air must remain the same temperature so that when the body becomes accustomed it feels neither water nor the air, providing one with a sense of floating in zero gravity. With this in mind it would be difficult although not necessarily impossible to achieve at home. Ill be sure to post my experience with the chamber when i return.

most probably out of body experience, a common theme among people who use the chambers. One hour in an SD chamber is the equivalent of 6 hours rest for the people who use it for relaxation. This is its most common use but it can be used to induce extremely deep states of meditation and people report out of body experiences, enlightenment, metaphysical projection and such like. Probably the most intense thing you could do without drugs.

What would happen if you low dosed (~2g shrooms) and then went in for 3 hours?

I think in about 15 minutes, you'd be itching to get out!!

On a side note, do they sell home models of these SD chambers?

If anything a low dose before entering the chamber would most likely heighten the experience without destroying it. It's supposedly very hard not to relax inside one unless you were claustrophobic and achluophobic. If i choose to return i will probably load up with something first to measure the difference in experience. After about 40 mins inside a chamb er without any external stimulants the brain enters theta wave states without actually falling asleep, i think the 2gms might make that period more interesting. Most commercial places however will only let you go in for periods of one hour.

To your side note, there are chambers designed for home use. However expect to pay a serious amount of money for one and needing a place to put one may not be a simple problem (about the size of a small car in some cases). In an ideal world i'd have one in a heart beat.

Might be fun to try and build one... Just mimic a large tropical saltwater fish tank, with opaque walls and some kind of FAE.

I don't have the room or I'd proabably try it.

You can try it at home without the isolation tank; take blue toilet/tissue paper, tape it to the inside of chemistry goggles, and stare at a light for 20 minutes. You are essentially depraving your sense of sight so the brain hallucinates to keep itself busy.

Is what you said about the goggles true tuneinturnon?if possible any links for further reading? it would certainly make an interesting experiment. Any particular reason for blue?

yup, apparently it works although I have not tried it, I have read about sensory depravation in the past. I have no idea why the paper should be blue! lol, when it said "blue toilet paper", I thought, "where the hell am I going to get blue toilet paper??" I put tissue paper up above because the idea just occured to me, ill try it with tissue paper and see if it works. Here is a quote from this link: http://www.hackcanada.com/ice3/wetware/no_drug.txt

"For those of you into sensory depravation, try the Lilly Tank.
Just like in the movie _Altered_States_, this tank will change the
frequency at which your brain operates. Also try Ganzfeld Goggles. A
pair of old diving goggles covered with blue toilet paper will do.
Just lay back on a bed with these goggles on and stare into a light
bulb. The toilet paper turns the light from the bulb into a uniform
glowing blue field. Since your eyes have nothing to focus on, your
brain keeps itself busy by hallucinating. (This effect may take
from 5-20 minutes to occur.)"

and they have this info listed on Totse as well, by the same author (Jeff Hunter)

http://www.totse.com/en/drugs/otc/no_drug.html

It would be a very interesting experiment I agree!

/em runs to store for blue tissue paper and goggles.

If I buy them at the same time, will the DEA add me to a list? :tinfoil:

heh, they would if they could. I'm gonna try the goggle trick some time, but the article linked mentions playing frequencies through headphones and goggles with LEDs in them, well a few years back I was at a festival over here and there were a bunch of stalls set up promoting "legal highs" (those words together make me cringe) amongst the salvia, indian head massages and poppers there was a guy who had a stall which was around 15 or so deck chairs each with a pair of headphones and a seat of funny looking goggle type things on them. Naturally I went. It was called a dream machine and you sat in the chair and put the glasses/goggles and the headphones on. Inside the glasses was like 4 different coloured LEDs in each lense and the headphones played, to begin with, a single solid odd sounding tone and then they changed, the LEDs flashed together in sequence in and out of synchronisation. The result was very odd thought patterns, relaxed feelings and bizarre body sensations. I once saw an advert in a magazine advertising home versions of the machine, i didn't buy one and i've been kicking myself ever since. if anyone knows what they are please let me know.
