Floatation tank

I had the chance to try out one of those floatation tanks, sometimes referred to as sensory deprivation chambers.  These aren't kinky things, but legitimate options with a massage therapist.  It's kind of interesting to lie in the tank, floating, with nothing touching your body.  The idea is that you enter a state of mind that sounds to me a lot like the "sub space" we talk about while mummified.  I couldn't help but think how cool it'd be to be in the tank in a sleepsack.  The only thing you'd be feeling is the compression of the sack but not the weight of your body on a surface.  I don't know how you could make that happen.  I'm sure the facility wouldn't mind you taking a partner into the room with the tank, but it would be difficult to get into a sleepsack in the chamber unless your partner was strong enough to lift you and slide you in, but that isn't likely in my case.  The solution is a high concentration of epson salts to give you floatation and you can't get it in your eyes or they will burn so thrashing about is not a good idea, plus you wouldn't want to roll over and wind up face down - bad for business.  This has the makings for some new fictional stories; sorry I'm not a good writer.

Nope. I cannot swim.

Prefer contact with something. Preferably polythene or shiny paper.

Well that is my vote, for what it is worth.

Have a care towards the psychological side - they are used in regression/reversion therapy, however they were also used in military psychological torture experiments in the 1970s for exactly the same reason. They're also often used with people on the autistic spectrum who find help in being able to withdraw from the real world they sometimes struggle to relate to. There's an entire domain of latex in the same area, too.
Keep it to just a few minutes at first - subjective time dilation can often occur too.

LOL. Back in my 20's, I once did a four-hour stint in a tank. It was amazing!
