I was a bit late in the day getting this one done. In this entry, I wrote a bit more about using my Ganzfeld rig I made. Today, I was introduced to a new site by my Friend Nikki. Her and her husband lost their home to a fire a few weeks back and she has apparently learned a lot about how to handle the aftermath, between all the questions from fireman and Adjuster Guy. Check out the site and tell her what you think!

I filed my taxed online with TaxACT.com and it’s much easier than I had imagined, even after all the testimonials people gave me about it.
It’s amazing how much of a help it is to have kids. The tax credit for having kids is one good thing I attribute to GWB and Company.
As far as today’s events, Nikki told me about her site Firehugs, which she put up after her house burned down, and she wanted to have a sort of “lessons learned” when it comes to the aftermath of tragedies like that, and how to best handle that. I could tell there was genuine caring and concern that she didn’t want the stuff that happened to her to happen to other people. I tagged it on StumblerUpon so maybe it can get her some traffic to get the message out.
I used my Ganzfeld rig again. It was at night this time, so I just kept the bedroom light on. The blanking out of the visual field isn’t happening as fast as I thought it should in my research before trying it out. I think that is probably the reason others have painted the balls. I would like to eventually make a more “commercial”-ish version, with some sort of translucent white plastic that I can form around my eyes, and then rather than paint it, have LED’s on the outside of it for different shades and colors of light. That could get expensive…
So, I had the balls over my eyes, and it’s really cool how the visual field seems to sometimes PULSATE in time with my heartbeat. This is really interesting, considering I read somewhere that underneath all of that background noise we hear from the outside world, our ears can hear the sounds our bodies make from the inside. Stuff like blood rushing through veins, air as we breathe, and so on.
So, as I lie there seeing the entire visual field pulsate slightly with each heartbeat, it got me to thinking. Assuming that my eyes are able to perceive that, and assuming I was able to consciously perceive it only after masking out the changing visual stimuli, what else is there that I might be able to perceive and notice by just altering my senses and states of consciousness?
