Auditory High? - March 8th 2015, 09:22 PM

I placed this under substance (ab)use because here, the auditory nerves are being abused and manipulating the brain to form the same sort of high you'd get from drugs.

I haven't actually heard those songs listed in that article about being able to get high off of music. But I am listening to this one song on a music station, and I keep replaying it, and I almost feel high. Is it just the acoustics and the style of the song that is giving me that feeling, or is that song actually that sort of genre to influence the brain to behave stoned?

The audio definitely sounds what it would be like when you are completely stoned out of your mind. (My memories retain intact when stoned as well as drunk )

Re: Auditory High? - March 10th 2015, 07:00 PM

Hmm. I remember reading about something like that on failblog years ago - and it used the principle(more like myth) of binaural beats to produce a "high". There was "heroin " music, "ecstasy music",etc. Obviously it was bullshit. Binaural beats are proven to be bullshit. The principle was that by using slightly different frequencies of sound in each ear- your brainwaves would synchronize with the frequency difference of sound in each ear-causing a psychoactive effect. This is not possible and you can't get high from music. If I were to listen to music that sounded like i was stoned- it would just bring back memories of being stoned- but wouldn't actually make me feel high.

Music can feel good - that is why people listen to it- but its not producing a high. Highs are produced by the substance acting chemically on the neurons in the brain. There is no other way to produce an artificial effect like this- no "stimulation" of auditory nerves will produce such an effect.

So basically , it is just the acoustics of the music calling back to memory what it is like to be high - so you "almost" feel high- but it is kinda like in a generated memory so to speak. You are imagining being high - so you "almost" feel high.
