Ipod, Iphone, Ipad, Idosing… Idos.. what???

4 Aug

There have been reports on kids getting high by using digital drugs. Yes, you’ve read it right. drugs, digital. Reports say that teens listen to a specific kind of music with just two tones. It is called two-toned or binaural sounds. Supposedly,  this kind of music will alter the brain waves and will put the idoser ( a person who uses idosing or digital drugs) into an altered state just like the effects of using cocaine, marijuana and the likes.

Apparently, this kid is getting high just with his headphones and binaural sounds. :O

There are actually a lot of videos in Youtube showing teens who idose. These videos may convince us that idosing will get people high since we get to see the supposed effects or acts that these beats can do. But wait!  According to an interview, a researcher claims that listening to binaural beats will not put a person into an altered state or will not give effects the cocaine and other drugs is giving.

Helane Wahbeh is an assistant professor at Oregon Health and Science University.

Dr. WAHBEH: We did a small controlled study with four people, and we did not see any brain wave activity shifting to match the binaural beat that people were listening to. I just don’t think that there is enough evidence showing that it really does create those altered states. (click the link for the complete interview)

So, yes this idosing thing is not  proven to get these kids high. Parents can now breathe in relief. 🙂

The victims, ( yes, victims, I’ll explain this later) are fooled and are fooling themselves. They are actually fooling themselves thinking that they are really getting high. Oh poor creatures. They are just victims of people who want to earn a lot of money by fooling other people. I found this site http://www.i-dose.us/wherein a person can actually buy binaural beats to achieve a certain state. I am not yet sure if these are really effective like they can actually make you quit smoking for example, but if we hold on to to Dr. Wahbeh’s statement, these beats, this idosing is a hoax.

Save your money and DO NOT add this to your cart!

I am not saying that we should be smart in buying drugs. Hell no! We should be smart. Period. Illegal drugs in general is a big NO-NO! Whether it can be bought online (if someone will still insist that there is idosing :P) or in your neighborhood, it will destroy you. So, as the Spice Girls song would say it, “Get your act together we could be just fine. 😀

    Idosing… Interesting… If it really has an effect, I think the world would be better off with it than any drug for that matter. But of course, I wouldn’t be condoning such logic if the ramifications are graver than the benefits. As I see it, the act of Idosing has a negative register to the audience. Maybe it’s high time for marketing people to think of strategic ways to make their binaural stuff more appealing to other demographics.

      Yes, but things that are addicting are not usually good. 😛 so I’m still against this idosing. If these binaural stuff are good stuff, then I agree with you that the people behind this should market it to other target consumers and sort of redo the brand image. 🙂

    Drugs online. Totally similar to my previous post – gangsters online. Haha. Oh, the gangster life!

    I think this is the online version of health supplements. “No approved therapeutic claim,” but placebo does have an effect, right? The mastermind behind the Binaural Beats website is a genius. They offer free trials so people would be less hesitant to try these beats. AND, if you scroll down, they have posted this warning:

    Risk Free:
    You have a full, 100%, 60-day money-back guarantee! If, for any reason, you are not satisfied with the results, please ask for a refund within 60 days of the purchase, and we will return you the money.

    What a genius. This marketing scheme is a fool-proof strategy – giving a freebie and a money-back guarantee. It reinforces the thought that this thing is working, that this thing should work.

    Regardless of the digital drugs working or not, I applaud their developers. The ethical issue we must consider then is how to use the skills of these thinktanks to truly benefit mankind.

    Nice post, Patti! 🙂
