I-Dosing: How teenagers are getting 'digitally high' from music they download from internet

Read more: I-dosing: How teenagers are getting 'digitally high' from music they download from internet | Mail Online

hey put on their headphones, drape a hood over their head and drift off into the world of ‘digital highs’.
Videos posted on YouTube show a young girl freaking out and leaping up in fear, a teenager shaking violently and a young boy in extreme distress.
This is the world of ‘i-Dosing’, the new craze sweeping the internet in which teenagers used so-called ‘digital drugs’ to change their brains in the same way as real-life narcotics.




This sounds like bs to me..... anyone here into "I-dosing"? :doh

Rythmic music I do believe can be used to cause people to enter euphoric states

Though I have not heard of I Dosing before

Yes, it exists. Search up the software they use to do it; iDoser. It basically downloads a library of music that each plays at a pattern of unique frequencies. These same frequencies are said to be responsible for influencing the brain to release certain chemicals/hormones into the blood (hormones related to metabolism, sleep, testosterone etc - and most of the music we listen to have physical/mental affects on us anyway ).
Each song has its own name and unique frequencies to simulate the drug it purports to be (you can download Opium, Crystal meth, etc).

Never tried it before but heard of some second hand experiences with it (especially the sleeping pill one). You need good quality headphones so it doesn't distort the frequencies. You should give it a try if your skeptical, its the only way of finding out (could just be a placebo of the mind).

If I am not mistaken Sufi's use music in a similar way

Sounds like a Ouiji Board party to me.

Probably, but there IS a scientific side to music frequencies and its influence on the brain to release hormones. Who knows? Try it. :)

Re: I-Dosing: How teenagers are getting 'digitally high' from music they download fro

I haven't heard of it before - but I see how it can be completely legitimate.

There's been research on the human body/brain when other sensations are cut off (like - being in the dark, being in a sound-absorption chamber, and so on) - it does have various effects on the body.

The mind *need* stimulus from all it's functioning senses to work properly. There is an extreme and disconcerting adjustment period of this nature when someone *has* a sense and that sense is lost.

I'll have to try it and see what goes on :)

The Sufi's have used music to enter euphoric states for hundreds of years, you have to be open to the experience but rythmic music can influence a person's mood. Recall the Whirling Dervish's

Re: I-Dosing: How teenagers are getting 'digitally high' from music they download fro

You can enter very light mood altering states by listening to things like this. Watching static for 35 minutes for example will put you in a weird feeling, as it should. It sounds like someone tricked these kids into thinking that if a mp3 of static and binary sounds is labeled "Marjiuana" or "Bliss" then those are differen't "flavors". I just downloaded the program along with about 1000 of these "doses" and I'll give them a try but I'm pretty skeptical.

I seriously doubt they'd elicit the same feelings as recreational drugs, but I have no doubt they can help enter meditative states and help one feel relaxed. Or, the opposite.

I listen to ambient music while going to sleep now, it helps immensely. I'm going to try the biaural thing. There's an app that's less expensive than idoser - Tesla

I tried a 'sample' here at work with my iphone earbuds. I wasn't laying down or have my eyes closed or anything, but the beats did kind of make my body feel as though it were vibrating a bit. Similar to being near a really loud speaker, but with the feeling emanating from inside instead of outside.

Seems to be a load of hodgepodge. I have pretty decent headphones, listened to a couple of em on youtube, negligable effects. Though I feel a tad bit funny and hungry after that last one.

My friend has done it because he didn't think it would work. He said it gave him a high, but it was a different type of high from using weed and he said it didn't last as long.

Music does has mood altering effects, but I doubt they can match the potency of recreational drugs. You can definitely get the adrenaline flowing with some good metal, but that is a far cry from the effects of taking amphetamines. I suspect that a combination of mild physiological effects and a large placebo is behind the high.

Some good porn will do a lot more than that!!
