2. The Experience

Nobody can say what another person will experience while they’re inside a float tank. REST is essentially a form of meditation that takes away the distractions hard to escape when you're sitting in your bedroom. Like with meditation, everyone’s minds take them to a different place in sensory deprivation tanks. Some people claim they see visions of a world beyond our own. Others say that it feels like they are asleep, but they remain aware that they are awake. Interestingly, multiple studies show that the while in the tank, many people's brain experience unique activity similar to that of a sleeping brain.
