This thread is going to go bad haha, probably with the mention of DMT.

I've heard other people who have tried it also describe the "red" light. They also said you could only hear one sound, and that was your heartbeat, but that it they way it sounded was not how they expected it to sound. They said you could actually "feel" that sound, as if it was a tangible thing. I would love to try it.

If anybody's interested here (http://www.floatation.com/wheredetails_usa.html#USA) is a list of places where you can pay to float. If it's reasonably priced, I'm gonna go in the next few months.[/URL][URL="http://www.floatation.com/wheredetails_usa.html#USA"] (http://www.floatation.com/wheredetails_usa.html#USA)

Can someone, aside from Joe Rogan, explain what an Isolation/Floatation Tank is?

There is a place near my parents' house in Dallas that does it and I want to try it out. It's supposed to be incredibly relaxing.

Can't believe I've never heard of this but it does look pretty incredible.

idk, but I remember watching that show and see him sleeping in some air removing thing. It suppose to increase his stamina since he was fighting in Colorado or something like that.

In a hyperbaric chamber, the air pressure is slightly increased and does all these different things to your body. I remember before one draft, there was a piece on Colts WR Anthony Gonzalez because he has one of the home-use ones. And it makes your body heal up faster.

Yup, that's also how TO recovered from his broken ankle so fast to play in the Superbowl.

Never tried it but when I saw the Rogen video a couple years ago it sold me on it. One day I will experience it, I am down for any and all psychedelic experiences.

I've been wanting to try this for a while. Joe Rogan got a new one and you could sign up to win his old one. Of course I didn't win.

Hyperbolic Time Chamber perhaps?

I went twice and never got any crazy experiences. I was really relaxed though, like sleeping for an evening without ever dozing off.

I think he gets in his while on drugs, so that probably helps.
