    I've heard of it. I thought and still think it's laughable.

    I found this. Holy mind games Batman, it's Wiki!

    Binaural beats - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    While the site I posted (i-doser.com) talks about it as simulating recreational drug experiences, the above mentions reducing anxiety and providing other benefits i.e., control over pain. I thought it was interesting.

    That's not so laughable. But the idea of it as a simulating recreational drug experience is laughable. Can't they just take out Dark Side of the Moon? :lol:

    :lol:

    On the wiki site it gives two examples you can listen to. I haven't yet but likely will. Uh oh, what if I get all paranoid and get that disembodied feeling?? :eek: I wonder, if it simulates being high . . . . do you get the munchies?

    Well you'll know if when you wake up tomorrow, you find empty bags of chips around the house. :lol:

    I personally like listening to this while at the computer and no music on.

    Gads, reminds me of when Tangerine Dream started out in the late 1960's and their early music were experiments in Alpha Wave stimulation.

    Of course their early albums are nice to just veg out to... I would not call it a drug like experience in any way any more than I'd call meditation. Then again, that reminds me, old New Age music was written AS a meditation aid.

    Curious... but kinda funny.
