At a recent dinner party, the host asked: “Tell us about your latest dates.” I prepared myself for some deplorable Tinder stories, but instead, was surprised to hear how one guest had been invited to go “floating”. He explained that his date took him to a “sensory deprivation” experience in LA called Float Lab, where he lay, effortlessly suspended from gravity for two hours, enclosed in a sound free, light free chamber as his body floated in 1000 lbs (454 kgs) of saltwater. The goal? With no distractions, he was free to explore his mind, unencumbered.
