  1. I answered about the same question here, and it was about the waterproofing bath, which, however, was invented to turn off the senses and release the so-called “pure consciousness”.

    In addition, over the centuries there have been many ascetic practices of monks, for example, Tibetan ones, who were locked in stone retreats in the rocks for a year, two years, decades or for the rest of their lives, so these practices also, in practice, sought to “disconnect” the senses using external means. However, at the same time as turning off external stimuli, they cultivated the practice of focusing on internal images and symbols.

    Ram Dass (or Richard Alpert, one of the spiritual teachers of the famous “Beatles”) in one of his lectures (look for the book “Grain to the Mill”) he talked about modern “retreats” for Americans, during which those who wanted to settle in tents and leave them alone for 21 days somewhere in nature, in the forest. With a supply of food, of course. Many people initially took tape recorders and books with them, but when they went to such “retreats” for the second or third time, they themselves refused all this.

    Personally, I think you can easily lose your sight, hearing, and everything else if you just think hard about what a thought is. Think the thought as fully as possible, more concretely, more precisely. Enter the thought of the thought (by first knocking on the door that has yet to be found).

    The sixth sense – it is so native 🙂
