Have you ever wondered what it would be like to feel weightless? Along with its therapeutic usages, an isolation tank is used for meditation and relaxation purposes. The subject is asked to stay inside a lightless, soundproof tank filled with salt water at skin temperature.

Under the most dangerous conditions, the sensory deprivation may cause panic and have bizarre reactions to the tanks. People undergoing their first experience are often cautioned to not mix the journey with hallucinogenics because hallucinatory reactions are reported quite commonly already. While some people are relaxed enough to fall asleep, others do not have pleasant experiences.

So how about you?

Are you afraid of the dark?

Would you be comfortable with the deafening silence within its chamber?

How about being a tiny, egg-shaped floatation chamber for an hour?

Ultimately, the question is — do you dare to deprive yourself of your senses?

A man’s epic and frightening experience. Please excuse the language.
