I would describe this experience as having peaceful dreams, and then waking up because your roommate is waterboarding you. This is dumb, and I'm never doing it again. [...]
I know it's not going to happen, but part of me thinks maybe someone will open the door to this tank and steal my kidney. I begin to think, does anyone know I came here? Why didn't they take down any of my information?
No one steals my kidney. Again, I am reminded of the previous float's thought: I am floating in privilege, and my body is soaked in guilt. Eventually, I fall asleep again.
Like many places of spiritual healing, this place was next to a Papa John’s

That was awesome.
That was awesome.
yeah, i LOL'd. then i read the article. boo.
session 2 - how could a sleeping person in the dark know they moved 270 degrees (vs 90)?
author consistently falls asleep in the tanks, yet somehow never dreams or remembers any thing whatsoever other than his "comical" paranoid thoughts before and after.
maybe this is amusing because it is all fiction inspired by a groupon deal the author read about.
Because they eventually had to find the door, and being a mammal with a kinesthetic sense, they could tell how far they'd rotated from their initial post-sleep position in order to do so.
The author just doesn't describe any dreams. It's possible that he had them, but didn't want to write about them. Or maybe he just didn't have any. I certainly don't remember my dreams every night.
He also does remember waking up and going back to sleep several times during his third session.
your reply makes me think you have no idea that 270 + 90 = 0
the whole point of the tank is THE DREAMS (and/or Hallucinations). to write about anything else = FAIL
I'm sure I found his paranoia about having his kidneys stolen more entertaining than a description of some random dream. "And you were there, and you..."
and yet, orders of magnitude less entertaining than Charlie The Unicorn
If you think Charlie the Unicorn is the height of humor, you might be in the wrong place.
you're very helpful! go stand out in the street.
