Lucia No.3

Quote:

an apparatus called Lucia No. 3, a device that consists of a lamp surrounded by LEDs that hangs off the end of a pole structure, which the participant sits in front of with eyes closed. The device is hooked up to a computer with some custom built software controlling the emitted patterns of light which trigger strange visions in the recipient. It recently exhibited at the Kinetica Art Fair in London and is the work of Dr. Dirk Proeckl (neurologist and psychologist) and Dr. Engelbert Winkler (psychologist and psychotherapist) who have teamed up with Maria Lopes to form Traveller Unlimited, an experiential art project where you are the artist.

The device works by affecting alpha brain waves and stimulating something called the pineal gland—so called because it looks a bit like a pine cone—which is located in the center of the brain. The pineal gland, which is functionally and anatomically linked to other centres of the brain, reacts to both the intensity and rhythms of the light, triggering a visionary reaction in the person’s brain.




I wonder if it really produces visuals or has anything to do with the pineal gland.

Looks neat. But I'll stick to things that don't require electricity to offer an experience in the 'inner realms', like DMT or meditation. I'm not saying I wouldn't try this though.

Meditation is really the best way to achieve this as it doesn't even require any chemicals.

There's also a rare yogic technique that involves pushing ones own tongue into the soft spot in the back of the throat, and tickling the pineal gland. If pushing on your eyes while closed can produce visuals, then imagine what pushing on the inner eye of your pineal gland would do.
(I would not advise anyone to try this)

Would that give me an epileptic seizure?

I have an old pair of Muse sharps from photosonix, back when I was really into psychedelics.  I remember them being pretty fun to play around with, but rather gimmicky none the less

People in the 60s knew where its at. Basically they'd eat acid and stare at the stroboscope.

I'm not sure I can trust a guy named Engelbert Winkler

That's such a vague generalization.  My mom was eating acid in the 60's and that's not what was going on.

Well obviously not everyone was eating acid and staring at flashing lights. Im saying that people knew about that sort of thing back then.
