I’m relatively new to float tanks but the idea of them has intrigued me ever since hearing about them on a Joe Rogan podcast. What makes it so interesting is you begin to think, “I wonder what weird stuff is going to happen if I shut my eyes and ears off and lose all sense of my body? Will I go insane and scream in Hebrew? Will I fall asleep and dream about Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds? Will Nicholas Cage appear in search of treasure?” The good thing about this is the experience doesn’t promise anything.

So, with that being said I conducted a practical experiment. The question, does floating improve your memory? See the video below to watch the result…

On talking to him about my writings on ‘the importance of feeling’ he asked that I take two floats and write a blog post from this perspective. So what’s so special about ‘feeling’? It’s a different way of looking at self-awareness. […]Read more
It’s abundantly clear to anyone who’s been to the beach that ocean water is far more buoyant than fresh water. This is, of course, because of the salt content, which increases the salinity of ocean water by about 3.5 per cent for the most part. The Dead Sea, bordering Israel, the West Bank and Jordan, […]Read more
