BBC To Document Sensory Deprivation


news.bbc.co.uk

Within half an hour of being locked up at the start of the experiment, all of the subjects lie down and go to sleep. But the real ordeal will begin when they wake up and find they have no idea what time it is.

Being alone in the dark for extended periods of time can have negative consequences psychologically. But induced intentionally, it can also be an effective weapon for conquering the ego.

Indeed. Many people report having mystical-like experiences and out of body experiences. It seems a little spooky, but a lot who have experienced it swear by it as being transformative and therapeutical.

The victims are often kept awake for days in american custody by playing loud music. Sensory deprivation over these extended periods of time leads to the establishment of a grave psychosis, a very severe psychopathological injury that sometimes needs years to heal.

Yeah, that's different than a sensory deprivation tank, where people are usually just floating in warm, shallow water in a quiet, dark environment.

One is for torture, the other for exploration of the human psyche in a calm environment.

I am shocked at how little people know about flotation tanks!!! They make you feeling amazing. They can take you into meditative states and show you completely mental clarity about all the problems in your life. They can enhance your creativity and allow you to learn things much easier because they give you a new perspective on things. They can take away all your stress and help you completely relax which many people don't know how to do. They can help you get rid of pains and aches, and increase your blood flow. The epsom salts alone are super healthy for you to soak in. How do people not know about this? This is insane. Flotation tanks should be as popular as yoga or massages.
