You may be wondering, what is a Dreamachine? Well, its probably best if I just steal a quote off the website, just in case I don't explain it properly.“… the world
“… the world’s only art work viewed with eyes tightly closed.” Used by creative people for over half a century, the Dreamachine has been reputed to create multi-layered geometric and organic shapes and symbols, swirling in a rhythmic pulse of holographic imagery, giving a feeling of being surrounded by colors. The flicker correspondes to Alpha Waves which are normally present in the human brain while being both alert and relaxed where mental imagery is more easily created and visualization techniques are more effective. Aldous Huxley remarked: “The Dreamachine is an aid to visionary experience."People have been using the Dreamachine for over 50 years. It has been used by many prominent artists and modern thinkers with great success. William S. Burroughs, David Bowie, Paul McCartney and Kurt Cobain, just to name a few.
I took my 18 year old son with me last night. He was so impressed with the Dreamachine, he brought one home!
