Quote from: Dragonia on May 11, 2017, 04:22:10 AMDang, I need to try this whole "sensory deprivation tank" experiment in my bathtub. There's no way I would exit that experiment worse than when I started.... Especially after the last couple weeks I've had. I wouldn't even mind a couple of hallucinations. In fact, I welcome them! Ill let you all know if things get all crazy. ...

If boredom would result with limited isolation, I wonder what sort of mental state I'd be in with near total sensory deprivation. I also heard that near total sensory deprivation might induce hallucinations after a while, but I don't know if this is true.

Example of fresh water versus salt sea water is fresh = 62.4 pounds per cubic foot while salt water is at 64.0 pounds per cubic foot. That difference matters with a large ship but not much difference for the human body. A 180 pound person or about 84 kilograms will displace an equivalent 84 liters of water if the body is fully submerged. The buoyancy of a human is somewhat influenced by his/her body mass index. Fat is less dense than muscle so chubby people tend to float more freely than more muscular ones.
