I always wanted to use a sensory deprivation tank. I think that would be neat having that feeling of floating. Anyone have any personal experiences with that?

rave music gets me happy!!
the bounce in the tune probably


Trance and techno gives me the feeling of meditation.

There's something different for me and hardstyle and jumpstyle music, I can't really describe it. I think the best way to describe it is that it makes me feel very powerful

Yeah well the CIA discovered that sensory deprivation is the most effective means to "break" a person thereby extracting the proper confessions:

In 1963, the CIA distilled its decade of research into the curiously named KUBARK Counter-intelligence Interrogation manual, which stated definitively that sensory deprivation was effective because it made "the regressed subject view the interrogator as a father-figure... strengthening... the subject's tendencies toward compliance." Refined through years of practice on actual human beings, the CIA's psychological paradigm now relies on a mix of sensory overload and deprivation via seemingly banal procedures: the extreme application of heat and cold, light and dark, noise and silence, feast and famine -- all meant to attack six essential sensory pathways into the human mind.





As described in the classified 2004 Background Paper on the CIA's Combined Use of Interrogation Techniques, each detainee was transported to an Agency black site while "deprived of sight and sound through the use of blindfolds, earmuffs, and hoods." Once inside the prison, he was reduced to "a baseline, dependent state" through conditioning by "nudity, sleep deprivation (with shackling...), and dietary manipulation."


It may not be getting high but just shows that opposites attract:

Walking Meditation - I do this every morning.

Singing - If I'm alone and in the mood to sing, I can get SO high! It's exhilarating!

Breathing in the fur of a dog - Something about the smell of my dogs makes me high. It's best to take 3 full breaths through the nose.


Designing something - I lose track of time when I'm designing a piece of furniture, a structure or a room.

Lol well I meant sensory deprivation in a healthy mental state. Not people trying to harass me.

No one mentioned putting a plastic bag over your head?

Depriving your brain of oxygen makes you feel high. It's the same effect you get from inhaling certain substances, minus the fact that you are not only getting less oxygen but replacing it with something else.

Please be aware that I am not condoning this action. But in a thread labeled "Getting high without drugs", this fits the bill, physically at least. I STRONGLY SUGGEST YOU DO NOT do this, as there is an increased chance of death via suffocation the very first time.

I got one: Keep inhaling and exhaling hard, like you're blowing dust off something, while twirling around, instant craziness!

most techniques listed are leaning to the state of being 'overwhelmed'
by a stimulus.... whether a drug or intoxicant or putting ones body in stress...


i find that getting into a transcendental state can be something that is so subtile it is 'overwhelming' in its own way...

watching clouds,
sitting in the midst of a flower garden,
doing the 'fishing' routine without the need/desire to actually catch fish
(its about communing with nature)
hiking, listening to trees speak, hugging a rock...
all these to me are more rewarding than the acid trips/ '___'/peyote/ mescaline helpers ever encountered.
yoga & physical exhaustion, rock climbing are close second place things

Genuine laughter has to be the best, and the simplest, drug free high.
Thank god for endorphins.

Here are my best natural highs:

Meditating
Playing Music
Being with those I love

I have to say though... best high ever would be going to a concert. I saw Metallica live... and the atmosphere was so incredible; I was in the midst of a bad flu and my symptoms literally just disappeared!

Just click on my posts and you'll find -- stunningly -- that I post springforestqigong.com... only maybe a third of my post links. Let's be scientific about this before I'm tarred and feathered.....

Yeah so far the first 13 posts I made on ATS have no link to springforestqigong.com...

That's 0 for 13 -- not even close to 50% but lets see how it adds up....

O.K. on the 18th post I gave the springforestqigong.com... link.

Although I had several posts censored before that which may have had the link -- still not nearly half.

Very heavy beats and basslines tend to work for me, which is why I have a penchant for Industrial music. Most people hear it and think its noise and yet my mind strips it down, picks out all the individual parts and while its doing that on a concious level I find it easy just to drift away, relax and get through just about every problem I encounter. And when I come out of the "trance" I usually feel brighter, more alert and really good.

Sometimes though its as easy as sitting or lying in the sun, listening to bird song or the sea, or both. Sadly places that you can do that without being subjected to someone elses noise are few and far between.
