“What if we could isolate the brain from external stimuli? What if we could create an absolutely silent space where we could float in total solitude and near sensory deprivation for prolonged periods? Could we reach a modified state of consciousness in this way? Explore the innermost spaces of our mind? Dive deeper into our imagination?”
