News 9 in Oklahoma City reports that “I-dosing on ‘digital drugs‘ is becoming an alarming new trend amongst teens.”
So called ‘digital drugs’ are audio files embedded with binaural beats, which are sounds that supposedly have drug-like powers over the mind, when listened to over headphones.
Only – it’s pretend. There’s no scientific evidence of binaural beats altering people’s mental states in the ways that recreational drugs do.
The News 9 story not only suggests that binaural beats are a gateway drug – but that they could send demons through the headphones of your iPod and open the Gates Of Hades!
Have ‘digital drugs’ made the people of Oklahoma go insane? Check this out and let me know what you think.
And if you live in Oklahoma – please leave a comment and say something reassuring!
