Sanctioned studies in isolation and sensory deprivation began in 1950s in earnest and the McGill University in Montreal was ground zero for it, so to speak.
For the most part of the 50s, laboratory based studies into the spectrum of psychology became a trend as people began to realize the immense capabilities of the human brain which has more raw processing power than dozens of super computers put together.
This is based on the fact that the brain’s ability to decode input from sight, sound, vision, smell, temperature, gravity in a split second and respond within that same second would require a dozen supercomputers crunching numbers for a week to arrive at the same results.
The 50s was the era when the human brain became the final frontier for science faculties that were not obsessed with aliens and supernatural phenomenon which were also trendy during that time.
The experiments on the mind were given names that sounded ‘zingy’ such as the Mil-gram Experiment, MK-ultra or Zimbardo’s prison study which involved locking voluntary participants inside four-star solitary confinement that came with blindfolds, TV that only played static and radio that belted nothing but white noise.
Nevertheless, these confinements were also fitted with nice comfy beds, sofas, gourmet food, microwaves, stoves and whatever else you would expect from a nice 4 star hotel.
Besides discovering that people basically became irritated and irrational after a week, these studies did not go very far except for one study that was developed by Dr John C. Lilly who happens to be the man behind Restricted Environmental Stimulation Technique and the invention of the first isolation tank which are now known as floatation tanks or float pods.
Based on the studies conducted by not just Lilly, but also numerous other researchers past and present, it has been acknowledged that floatation tanks indeed have various positive effects on a whole plethora of issues that average humans suffer from.
From hypertension to arthritis, child autism to smoking cessation, obesity to chronic migraines and even PMS and discomforts caused due to pregnancy, floatation therapy has returned promising results as an ancillary treatment for these issues. Nevertheless, as it is with most cure-alls, studies have been inconclusive scientifically but as far as empirical evidence goes it is likened to the ‘philosopher’s stone’.
Most of the positive benefits of floatation therapy (there have been no negative side effects reported from floatation therapy thus far) are attributed to the impact that the therapy has on the human brain as the therapy basically puts the brain to rest momentarily allowing it to re-organize everything inside us and reboot itself.
Most individuals who attend floatation therapy swear by the fact that they have improved concentration and creativity apart from better overall health, higher tolerance to pain and in general left in better mood for weeks at a time.
It seems that the only way to find out for ourselves about R.E.S.T is to go for the therapy twice a week and actually experience what happens, nothing to lose except a few dollars and everything to gain based on what people are saying about it!
Shock Waves can Deform a Material Up to its Atomic Level
Scientists from Materials Structure Science, Tokyo Institute of Technology have captured the deformation effect of shock waves on the material when they used x-rays diffraction. The effect shows how shock waves deform material at the atomic level. Creativity and manipulation in the structure of a material to know about their properties was the foundation of the research. The interaction between the materials takes place with the exchange of forces. So now it would be easy to predict any material’s ability to withstand force and how it would impact the central body of the structure.
The deformation force caused by the rays on the material was actually a shock wave that had displaced the atoms of the material. If the external force is not too great, then the internal force occurred due to atoms can block the external force to retain the natural state of the material or structure. In the case the external force is beyond the limit, force may result in permanent damage and deformation on the material or structure, and then structural failure analysis experts would be needed to make a report on the material being deformed.
The x-ray diffraction came to the rescue at the unit cells of the material. The unit cell is the smallest repeating three-dimensional atomic structure that reflects the symmetry of the crystal. By studying the displacement developed due to crystal deformation, the material was observed. When x-rays were directed towards the atom, it gets absorbed and they re-emit again in the form of shock way by the atom present in the crystal.
