Hello everybody. I would like your opinions/suggestions about my little project here. I came up with the idea at my old apartment and after deciding
to move closer to work, never got around to creating it.
The goal is to use a light source and focus the beam into a mirror that will reflect it through a prism, creating a vertical rainbow of light.
I will be sitting on the floor in the middle of the room and want each wavelength off light to strike me while matching the color and region of the
The design itself is pretty simple and I'd like to keep it that way. I plan on creating this in a small second bedroom closet that isn't getting much
usage. It's almost perfectly square so I chose to create two designs.
The first design is the one I'm probably going to go with, but I'd like to test both. It offers a greater sense of isolation, as the mechanism for
creating the rainbows are all suspended above your head. This gives the illusion that there is nothing else in the room with you.
The second design was to see if there was any significance to sitting inside a pyramid structure during meditation. To be honest, I tend to walk my
own spiritual path and this project is more like having fun with possible unexpected results.
Regardless if anything is achieved, the space will result in a nice quiet room to read or relax in. Things may happen within this room that would
increase the experience, if you know what I mean. I like to meditate for brief periods in all sorts of locations to achieve rest or calm.
I'm not going to answer any rude comments or ramblings about how spirituality is this or that. This is a personal attempt at satisfying a few
curiosities about the subject of meditation and the spirit in a broad sense.
When it comes to the design, I have a few questions...
What would make a good light source?
Could a white laser work?
What is the easiest way to sound proof the room?
Are flat mirrors good enough for reflecting the light into a prism?
Should I use metal or plastic tubes/rods to construct the pyramid?
What would best best way to mount the prisms to the mirrors?
Is there a paint that can block EMF waves after it dries?
If not, what material can I buy to completely isolate the room from radiation?
Aluminum foil, lol?
I have a few ideas brewing in my head, but hoped I would get some better advice on ATS. Have you ever created anything similar or developed
interesting ways to experiment spiritually? Go wild with your suggestions, but the only rule is that you can't see anything in the room with you.
Any help would be appreciated and thanks in advance.
