Thank you Hugh, this is a nice source. I just subscribed to their YT channel as well.

During my sessions, I play a video by the Monterrey Bay Aquarium of red jellyfish and soft music. I listen rather than watch. So far, I feel very light and fluid, and find the idea of using VR that allows for space apt. The experience itself is wonderful and warm and puts me in touch with youthful feeling long ossified.

I understand why some people might become addicted. There is an embrace of warmth, something most addicts are sorely lacking. Setting a different stage, say edm or whatever, would be a very different experience, however!

We have an old oculus around here somewhere. But my visuals from molecular to the icecaps are already scenic. I can feel my body at will, and by lifting my eye mask, return to the room. My imagination is not very visual, so the experience is esp fascinating.

Have you tried it, and if so, what would you say about it?
