DMT: The Spirit Molecule
One of the secrets is – our body is a lens – a filter.
It experiences a specific physical reality only – which in and by itself is not actually there – it is an illusion.
There is no objective reality out there! We create it on the spot in our head. It is like only seeing the color red in a picture that contains a myriad of other colors and then say: I see a red building – it’s all red!
Possibly we only see one part in a million of the Total Reality that surrounds us.
This one millionth part we call Physical Reality.
All other realities are filtered out by our awareness system.
We are surrounded by all these other realities, but they are not experienced or noticed by human beings. We do not even suspect that they are there! What a surprise…
“In 1990, I began the first new research in the United States in over twenty years on the effect of psychedelic, or hallucinogenic, drugs on humans.
During the project’s five years, I administered approximately four hundred doses of DMT to sixty human volunteers. This research took place at the University if New Mexico’s School of Medicine in Albuquerque, where I was tenured Associate Professor of Psychiatry.
I was drawn to DMT because of its presence in all of our bodies. I believed the source of this DMT was the mysterious pineal gland, a tiny organ situated in the center of our brains. Modern medicine knows little about this gland’s role, but it has a rich metaphysical history. Descartes, for example, believed the pineal was the ‘seat of the soul’ and both Western and Eastern mystical traditions place our highest spiritual center within its confines.”
