An experimental process based on Image-Streaming

Frequently during Image-Streaming sessions I'd find myself in realms of exquisite beauty scenes and environments of literally breathtaking splendour and radiance.
I found I could simply ask to be shown environments of extreme beauty... and they'd simply appear.
Soon I noticed I could specify whether I wanted to explore a thundering elemental seascape or a delicious, luminous borealis... and they'd swim into view before me, with exactly the qualities I'd requested.
Majestic starfields, luminous aquatic ecosystems, realms built from light or sound patterns... galleries filled with the most astonishing art I'd ever seen, music that tingled through your cells... all within a few moments' reach, courtesy of your own turned-on neurology.
During one problem-solving trip, looking for new memetic methods of enhancing intelligence, I came across the idea of using a 'realm' or environment, the exploration of which would in itself be the stimulation needed.
My thinking was that my own brains/minds, having access to greater levels of intelligence and processing power than I consciously do, would be a better judge/developer of what stimulation I currently needed to jack up my own level of development in XYZ areas than my own conscious-level thinking on the matter.
So I started experimenting with trips where the focus was to "create me a realm, the exploration of which has a profoundly stimulating effect on my intelligence."
The first trip I found myself in a series of extremely attractive, tranquil ice caverns, walled by huge splinters of ice, polished like glass on the outside on a crusty hoar-frost floor that muffled all noise. I followed a path through a reflective tunnel into a huge cavern, full of many different-sized crystals in a long sunken hollow.
I started to interact with the environment touching, pushing and moving pieces, snapping off a thin crystal tip with a bell-like chiming noise... and realised that the entire cavern played like a giant harmonic instrument. Each crystal I played reverberated with its own pure tonal palette, and the resonance caused the others nearby to throb and chime in a billion shifting patterns.
The more time I spent there, playing these peculiar crystals, the more I noticed about the interaction of the pulsing sound waves, their duration and limits some crystals only chimed when sequences were hit, some produced differing octaves, some induced chordal patterns, and all sounded sublime.
Lesson? Looks like my brain built me (in seconds) an experiential holographic simulator for exploring the interacting patterns and forces of the world, in a manner I found really cool and fun to play.
I don't suppose now that directly experiencing some very fundamental principles of matter/energy would enhance your understanding of all the outer forms? (Probably...)
The process seemed to do several useful things:
Dream Realms Drill
Some application ideas
And if in doubt, just ask for more!
Drop me a line with your results or questions. Have fun!
