The sensory deprivation tank -- a temperature-regulated, salt-water filled, soundproof, lightproof tank that can isolate its occupant from numerous forms of sensory input all at once -- has gone by many names over the years, but its overall design and purpose have remained largely unchanged: to find out what your brain does when it's shoved into a box all by itself and left alone for a while.

Back in the old days, if you wanted to experience sensory deprivation you wore a blindfold or stuck your fingers in your ears like everybody else. But that all changed in 1954, when neuroscientist John C. Lilly dared to question what would happen if the mind was deprived of as much external stimulus as possible.

I want to try this. Would you try it?

I'm more interested in an enechoic chamber--but I'd try either if I had access.

I would never try it but that's mostly owing to my own constitution. I think most people could probably do well to try it once in their lifetime.

What.

I'd do it. Hell yes. I'm the most introspective, self-critical (in the Popperian sense) person alive today. Well, probably not, but I'm at a much higher level than, say, 95% of people. I also have OCD, which I think is a huge barrier to this kind of self-reflection. So if I were to get in I might reach some insane level and wake up with the ability to move small objects with my mind.

I would absolutely try it, and do so completely willingly. I think one hour at a time would be good to start.

What is the purpose of the water?
If I am floating, isn't that a sensation, and more than just lying on the metal floor?
My work here is, finally, done.

I'm guessing there are no waves regulated and if you don't move for a long while you might not sense the water, again I'm guessing.

Check this video out. Not so related, but alittle related as he talks about sensory deprivation chambers for a moment.

www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qwd25JV-jnU

It's pretty cool. I think that if a person were in a chamber they would start seeing things or.... they would sleep after alittle bit. If you don't know Vsauce (the channel that made the video) please check it out, nice topics.
