Waking Physical Immobility Lab (Immobilitarium)


IAC's Waking Physical Immobility laboratory (Immobilitarium) was inaugurated in April 2005. In this laboratory, the researcher applies a technique of consciential self-control that requires him or her to remain completely immobile, yet awake, for three hours, eventually even resisting the urge to swallow or blink. The exercise provides an opportunity for self-confrontation for the purpose of:

  • - Improving perceptions of energies and the extraphysical (non-physical) dimension
  • - Facilitating lucid projections (i.e. out-of-body experiences, astral projection)
  • - Identifying new energetic sensations and signals
  • - Amplifying self-knowledge
  • - Overcoming anxiety
  • - Improving concentration and willpower

In being predisposed to three hours of immobility the researcher is provided with an opportunity to:

  • - Appreciate that he or she is much more than the physical body and that the body is just one of several vehicles of manifestation of the     
  •   consciousness
  • - Evaluate the level of control that you as a consciousness have over your physical body
  • - Recognise the usefulness and immediate benefits of controlling the physical body through the application of one's ironclad will
