Among the influences of the extreme solitude state on the mind, it is a hallucination symptom that there are as many reports as time madness goes wrong. In an experiment led by psychologist Donald Heb in McGill University Medical Center in Canada in 1957, we confined the subjects in a room like a cube for several days and investigated what kind of symptoms occurred. In order to minimize the stimulus given to the subject's visual, auditory and tactile sensations, the room where the subject stayed was surrounded by a soundproof wall.

During the experiment, experiments were inevitably canceled because there were successive subjects who complained of hallucinations, auditory hallucinations and tactile anomalies.

I will continue the voyage as it is and finally arrive at Tahiti in a place quite different from the goal. After arrival, Mr. Moitessier said, "It was not painful at all to be alone on the ocean, but I felt that I was happy to be on the ocean, probably I rescued myself of my soul I thought that I wanted it, "he revealed that he got pleasant feeling in a sense that he could hardly reach in an ordinary man.
