This is your brain in a dark box

On the subject of entoptic phenomena and altered states of consciousness, I thought I might share with you an interesting experience I had. There’s a business in Chesapeake that provides sensory deprivation tanks where, basically, you float in a warm bath in the dark. There’s a lot of mystery and mystique surrounding what happens in a floatation tank. I’d always wanted to try it. One day it popped up in my inbox through Groupon and I decided it to go for it.

I wrote about my experience for Savage Minds. You can read about here, My Journey Through Innerspace.
