Sensory Deprivation

After a sleepless night, I find myself sitting in front of the computer feeling like half of my mind has been shut down.  This reminds me that I’m curious what being in a sensory deprivation chamber is like.  Anyone know of one I can use in Singapore?

The idea of being able to lie still somewhere there is no sound and no light and basically no feeling is appealing.  I could sleep for weeks and would emerge refreshed and renewed, similar to a butterfly coming out of its cocoon.

Too bad I hate butterflies (is that the same thing as stating one hates babies?  I don’t hate babies).

I’ve been playing with a few things lately.

iPad sake

The first one overstimulates the senses.  The latter helps deprive them.

    Why do you hate butterflies? I don’t hate ’em but am scared to be around them cos they look so fragile. I’m scared of caterpillars too but that’s a different story.

    Will using apple products contradict microsoft’s stand that its products are better?

      Heh, well, a few points on this:
      – This is a “personal” blog so my viewpoints don’t necessarily represent that of Microsoft.
      – My opinion is that regardless of what company one works for, they should always be open to learning about competitors’ products – to see strengths and weaknesses.
      – Microsoft doesn’t have anything similar to the iPad… yet. :)
