Channeling the theta waves

Hahaha, yes, Dexter was a genius ahead of his time. I am glad you mentioned your session because I read the contribution where you mention sensory deprivation, but I didn't connect. It perfectly describes the state we are in while sleeping (the REM phase). If you watched the movie "Get Out", you'll maybe remember that the hypnosis state looked quite the same. If it works on the same principles, could we use hypnosis to brainstorm better?

I think hypnosis could work but with some changes. What I know about hypnosis is that it needs to be induced in a person. When a hypnotist performs hypnosis, he controls the hypnotized mind. I don't know whether a hypnotist can enable a thought (not known to the hypnotist) in the hypnotized person. What we need here is self-hypnosis (https://www.skillsyouneed.com/ps/self-hypnosis.html) - the process of reaching that tranquil and "free" state yourself. The problems that then arise are is this state different from the state that one reaches after meditation or sensory deprivation? Is self-hypnosis another name for them or are these distinct states?

I am really not familiar with hypnosis, but from the amateur point of view, the state hypnosis put you in is like swimming on the surface of a sensory-deprivation-tank state. They all try hard (meditation, hypnosis and sensory deprivation), but sensory deprivation could be the closest to achieve not only the inner tranquil and free state but also the environmental independentness (I know it's not a word :D).
