Agree with last commenter

It sounded like a fun episode to listen to sins I have not tried my self and this is something I would like to try. But even with my limited knowledge even I knew that the main purpose is to be completely shielded off from the world.

I have always wondered how it would feel to be in a century deprivation tank after taken LSD. Lights/laser etc would then be fun to play with from time to time.

Ya did it wrong!

I am not a touchy feely hippie and I'm not at all mystical BUT I have used deprivation tanks as a form of relaxation and as a way to open up my mind. I don't know about this place you went but it sounds awful plus you did everything wrong.

It's a deprivation tank, so what's with all the lights and music nonsense? You have to go in there and float in dark silence. The first time I floated it was not great and I had a similar experience to you guys. I spent most of the time telling myself to relax. The first time you do something this strange it's naturally going to be distracting. However, the more I went that better I got at it.

I have to say, I was able to really get into some hidden places in my mind after I mastered the tank. The basic concept is not crazy at all and if you go regularly to a good place it can really be petty incredible.
