    The mind *need* stimulus from all it's functioning senses to work properly. There is an extreme and disconcerting adjustment period of this nature when someone *has* a sense and that sense is lost.

    I'll have to try it and see what goes on

    The Sufi's have used music to enter euphoric states for hundreds of years, you have to be open to the experience but rythmic music can influence a person's mood. Recall the Whirling Dervish's

    You can enter very light mood altering states by listening to things like this. Watching static for 35 minutes for example will put you in a weird feeling, as it should. It sounds like someone tricked these kids into thinking that if a mp3 of static and binary sounds is labeled "Marjiuana" or "Bliss" then those are differen't "flavors". I just downloaded the program along with about 1000 of these "doses" and I'll give them a try but I'm pretty skeptical.

    I seriously doubt they'd elicit the same feelings as recreational drugs, but I have no doubt they can help enter meditative states and help one feel relaxed. Or, the opposite.

    I listen to ambient music while going to sleep now, it helps immensely. I'm going to try the biaural thing. There's an app that's less expensive than idoser - Tesla

    I tried a 'sample' here at work with my iphone earbuds. I wasn't laying down or have my eyes closed or anything, but the beats did kind of make my body feel as though it were vibrating a bit. Similar to being near a really loud speaker, but with the feeling emanating from inside instead of outside.

    Seems to be a load of hodgepodge. I have pretty decent headphones, listened to a couple of em on youtube, negligable effects. Though I feel a tad bit funny and hungry after that last one.

    My friend has done it because he didn't think it would work. He said it gave him a high, but it was a different type of high from using weed and he said it didn't last as long.
