Digital Drugs & I-Dosing: A Relix Report

A story that just posted to Relix.com examines the impact of I-Dosing. The “Digital drugs” in question are binaural beats, an effect of sound frequencies on the brain that was discovered in 1839. The report explores the impact of the I-Doser website on three willing interns/guinea pigs. I-Doser “sells tracks named after different drugs that, when listened to with headphones, supposedly give the listener a reaction similar to that of the drug it is named for.” The complete feature story, including the alleged science behind I-Dosing, can be found on Relix.com.

http://www.tinyurl.com/e-high The phenomenon of so-called digital drugs — or i-dosing — has been spreading like wildfire around the internet in recent weeks. Apparently a set of headphones and a trippy digitally crafted song is all you need to achieve a state of imaginary ecstasy. Two-tone technology is created by playing a different tone in each… ear to create the auditory illusion of a beat. The sounds serve to alter one’s brain waves and, by extension, a person’s mental state. try a free sample @ http://www.tinyurl.com/e-high
