IDoser "Virtual Drugs"

Post by mocka » Fri Sep 07, 2007 4:03 pm

Have you ever heard of "IDoser"? It's a new "drug". There're those soundfiles you have to listen to. They'll stimulate your brian in some kind of way that makes you get the real effects from drugs.

Im just wondering if this is bad for your health. Do anyone know?

I can't imagine how music can possibly be bad for your brain. Although, as a person who hears manele(to whom it may concern: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manele ) around him on a daily basis, i know it is not impossible.

I think the effects are psychosomatic...
I and several other people who listened to it did not feel anything at all.

I think if this software did as it is claimed, that is to emulate a certain drug like meth, then I suppose it would cause the brain to produce more serotonin

If this were the case, then I do see it as being harmful. As the pleasure center of the brain grows accustomed to the increased serotonin, one may become an addict.

One has to wonder why the IDOSER company is selling by the dose. Imagine, a world addicted to software. May give the gamer companies a run for their money :)

I would start to get worried if Microsoft jumped on the band of static.
