It's just like a sensory deprivation tank, except there you're literally floating in a liquid that makes you buoyant and is the exact same temperature as your skin, it' pitch dark, and once the water stops sloshing around it's SILENT. Not for the claustrophobic! lol
Both of these methods, and MANY more have been in books for YEARS.
It seems to me that their method is just another off-shoot of sensory deprivation/sensory overload.
Very interesting and about time none the less.
