Top 5 Virtual Reality Relaxation Experiences and Meditation

vr relaxation and meditation

Virtual reality is not just for gamers, today we talk about ASMR; relaxation and meditation in VR.

ASMR: Autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) is a euphoric experience characterized by a static-like tingling sensation on the skin that typically begins on the scalp and moves down the back of the neck and upper spine, precipitating relaxation. Just try ASMR on youtube and check it out.

Autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) signifies the subjective experience of ‘low-grade euphoria’ characterized by ‘a combination of positive feelings, relaxation, and a distinct static-like tingling sensation on the skin’. It typically begins ‘on the scalp’ before moving ‘down the spine’ to the base of the neck, sometimes spreading ‘to the back, arms and legs as intensity increases’. Most commonly triggered by specific acoustic and visual stimuli including the content of some digital videos, and less commonly by intentional attention control.
After the agricultural revolution and the industrial revolution (mechanization), the world is now overrun by the so-called “third wave”, viz of automation and advances in information technology, new communication tools and computerization of all social activities. The mind of man is to be manipulated by a “brain machine” and “virtual reality” by software.

Instead you cruise down a tranquil river flying along with the animals of the forest. If you have one, set up a small electric fan blowing a slight breeze in your face.
