Isolation Tanks and the Potential For Lucid, Trippy, Self Transformative Experiences

20 Aug

I’ve been fascinated with the thought of floating around in an isolation tank ever since I first saw the film Altered States ten years ago.

Wearing the God-Helmet for Out of Body Experiences and Alien Abductions

This is a fascinating 6 minute video into the research of Michael Persinger, inventor of the “God Helmet.” His research into out of body experiences, alien abductions, ghosts, and other “paranormal” phenomenon is predicated on the idea that these experience take place in the brain i.e. they’re an illusion and do not take place in […]

The Death of Lucid Dreaming

26 Jul

Will virtual reality mean the death of lucid dreaming? Recently I saw the movie eXistenZ by David Cronenburg. It’s about a fully-encompassing virtual reality game, where of course, something screwy happens and you begin to question what’s real and what’s not. To play, you have to surgically install a “bio-port” at the base of the […]

Earlier this month I wrote about the Expectation Fulfilment Theory of Dreaming by Joe Griffin. In my post I posed some hypothetical interview questions that I’d like to ask Joe Griffin.

I found something really wild tonight. I guess it’s old news since the patent is from 2003, but I see that Stephen LaBerge, the most famous lucid dream researcher and lucid dream author in the world, has a patent on “substances that enhance recall and lucidity during dreaming.” Patent number 20040266659, to be exact. Here’s […]

Part 2 : An Interview with Rob Bryanton of Imagining the 10th Dimension – What the Bleep style thinking & the Bicameral Mind

1 May

There’s a meme of growing popularity, largely due to the success of the film What the Bleep Do We Know, that can be summed like this: We create reality through conscious observation.
