The Quietest Place on Earth Will Drive You Insane Within 45 Minutes
Err, peace and quiet is overrated anyways...
Sounds awesome to me. I'd take the 45< minute challenge.
Mad after forty-five minutes? Try me.
Sounds like an interesting challenge. I wonder if rooms like this aren't just some kinda psychological experiment though to see.....whatever it is they're trying to see.
On one of my field trips we were shown a room like that. It really bugged my ears. I don't think I'd be able to handle it just from that.
I'd give it a go. I bet I'd go mad from boredom before I went mad from hearing just the sounds of my own body. Although farts are funny so that might keep me amused for the duration.
Honestly, I'd probably get just as bored in there as I would if you took away tv/internet/food for 45 minutes.
Seriously though, this is one of the more interesting things I've heard about recently, and something I'd love to give a try. Not so much to see how long I could last, but just for the overall sensory experience.
Indeed. Unless it's sleeping or meditation I doubt many people would want to hang around somewhere for very long without much of anything to do. There's only so much fluff in my belly button to keep me entertained.
Well yeah, and that's what I'd like to do. Not necessarily when I'm tired, but just to see how my mind processes everything, and also how my vision would be affected during the experience.
Like, the closest I've done to this was when my power went out the last couple of times, and how unnerving it was in general, where I'm sure part of it had to do with the absence of usual noise (and I guess wearing earplugs while sleeping to a certain extent to block out other people's snoring). I've also got pretty sensitive hearing & don't like noise very much, but this would be a whole nothing extreme.
so being in there will make me pyscho
I bet this'd be perfect for subliminal messaging & whatnot. Like, throw somebody in there for a while with isolated sounds to confuse the fuck outa em with appealing to the subconscious.
I would use that time to record creepy clips on a tape recorder for the next tester.
"The one in blue is trying to kill yooooooooou. Don't you hear him? Don't you hear his laughter? You should strike first. Get him before he gets you. Do it and you shall please me, the Dark One. It is my command."
Urgh, it's clearly not the quietest place in the world, pretty sure there's still air in there.
I'd pay to go in something like that. Sounds interesting.
Oh the possibilities...
I want to take that challenge. Sounds like a wicked mind fuck.
According to his logic...people who are stone deaf should be completely insane as well as unable to get up and walk around. A few months ago when my hearing was going in and out randomly I didn't have any problem with orienting myself, either. Maybe the disorientation is actually caused by the repeating patterns of the dampeners on the walls and ceiling being visually disorienting.
I think I could last fourty-six seconds!
