    i cant do the tank.....dont like anything closed in like that....but i do, do it to an extend....basically you are in a warm water..supposely creating a "womb" experience...you cant see or hear anything other than your heart and breathing...try going to a pool or hot tub....hot tub is better and simply close your eyes ...put most of your head underwater and float...relax as much as you can...

    if i am not mistaken....b f skinner came up with the tank.

    Article says John C. Lilly was the first to use it but BF Skinner came up with the tank?
