Another Psychonautic thread.

An isolation tank, flotation tank or sensory deprivation tank is a soundproof tank inside which subjects float in salt water at skin temperature in complete darkness. They are used for therapy for stress and pain as well as for inducing psychedelic experiences, sometimes even resulting in ego death.

Next week I will be probably trying a session in one.

Here are two videos from Joe Rogan describing an isolation tank:

I've never personally been in one, but it should be worth the experience.

Unless you are claustrophobic.. Er. .Well nah, even then, you'll have to face your fear.

I had always associated scensory deprivation tanks with research labs. Are there companies that provide this service to anyone willing to pay for it?

Haha, I actually know someone who owns a spa that offers such an experience.

Apparently it is pretty successful (their business).

I have been in one.
It is worth the time. (:

I don't know that I want to give up who I am. That makes me unique. I could be misunderstanding what he was saying, though.

It's just a temporary experience--and it's supposed to give you insight.
