This experiment reproduces sensory deprivation while in a fully aware state, thus allowing the veil between our world and the other side to weaken.
Sit in a relaxed position in a comfortable chair. Affix halved ping pong balls over the eyes with medical tape and shine a red light directly into the face. Keep your eyes open. Put on headphones and play white noise at a level to block out other ambient noise. Relax in this state for 30 minutes. You may begin to see images. Tell us what or who you see.
(Thanks Craig Manno for letting me subject you to my strange ways and letting me take this picture.)
