New device from Vlad at SOMA. Not sure I’d call it a synth, but a synth-like device. For expanding (or possibly contracting) your consciousness. Vlad is clearly having some fun, but I think he’s serious about developing some kind of mindfulness practice around this device.
"I want to share some weird and powerful techniques I discovered on the junction between electricity and shamanism, science and spirituality.
This was at a time when I investigated intensively some strange projects and tools that were created in underground Russian physics research and such things as the Global Consciousness Project from Princeton University. At the same time I was doing my own inner practice, trying to discover the reality that lays behind consciousness, shamanic practice, this invisible world and the force that we call “soul”, “spirit”, “life energy” and “inner world”. Some of my studies turned into technologies that can be seen as electro-shamanism, a kind of cyber-dzen. Many techniques and methods for exercises were developed based on these devices and technologies. Successful implementation of these practices gave me radically new ways of perceiving the world, life and myself, as well as a deep connection with the unconscious and a kind of magical way of acting. All SOMA gear was created using this experience and the esoteric approach to engineering I developed during that time. Now I would like to share these dis-coveries with the world, as I think we have to do more experiments and further investigations in this area. I also feel a lot of people could beneﬁt signiﬁcantly in their life and self development from this. And no less important, I feel that with this approach we can ﬁnd a new spirituality and self-awareness that is ﬁtting for the 21st century, when satellites are ﬂying in the sky instead of angels and in Padmasambhava’s cave we have a well-working internet connection.
The name “Quantum Ocean” points to the base phe-nomenon of the Universe that can be called Chaos, and which is observed in its purest state on the quantum level of matter structure. I gave this name to the project because all real effects that were discovered during these experiments were connected with different kinds of natural chaotic processes. Little by little I realized that here we have an important secret key and I started to explore this direction intensively. Quantum Ocean is the ﬁrst electro-esoteric, electro-spiritual project that has become ready for public release. Of course, the main secret is not inside the box with the circuit, but in your brain, so, actually, this is a deep practice using an analogue electronic device as a living icon of the inner-most root of life and the Universe — a kind of modern, inner alchemy."
