You’ve probably heard a lot about the drug DMT. MT: The Spirit Molecule, a pioneering book, and a documentary of the same name popularized it.
DMT is a psychoactive molecule from the tryptamine family that has the same fundamental structure as neurotransmitters and causes severe hallucinations.
It is well-known for triggering the same chemical response as when you die, as well as in lower amounts when you dream. The hallucinations that are triggered are distinct from those caused by any other medicine.
A surprisingly high percentage of DMT users, including many scientists, have claimed to have encountered or conversed with aliens or extra-dimensional entities while taking the drug.
DMT: The Spirit Molecule author Rick Strassman claims that almost half of the DMT users he interviewed found themselves in worlds populated by intelligent “beings,” “entities,” “aliens,” “guides,” and “helpers.”
For different people, these creatures took on varied shapes, but the most popular were “clowns, reptiles, mantises, bees, spiders, cacti, and stick figures.” The entities are described as “self-transforming machine elves” by Terrence McKenna, a famed ethnobotanist.
There are no other psychedelic drugs that regularly generate the presence of sentient creatures from the outside world.
In an interview, Strassman recounts the ‘beings” various experiences:
“At times, they were a humanoid, insectoid, reptile, and plant-like.” To varying degrees, they were aware of the volunteers.
They looked to be anticipating the volunteers and were relieved to see them, so they started engaging with them right away. At times, they seemed surprised and enraged that, at the very least, the volunteers’ awareness had intruded onto the creature’s range of action. Sometimes the volunteers were treated or experimented on.
From time to time, they had intimate relations with the aliens. Future scenarios were provided to some. Others were written down in some way for future reference. Others showered them with compassion and light. Others were guides who guided them to another area, such as a tunnel that led to a normal near-death or spiritual experience.
Some of the themes were classic science fiction tropes, such as flying toward a space station or a space ship, or automatons or robots going about their work. Hybrid creatures – machine/animal, even furniture-like combinations of beings — were sometimes difficult to classify.
I learned a little bit about dark matter, which is a non-visible matter that neither creates nor reflects light but accounts for 95 percent or more of the universe’s mass, despite the fact that I’m no expert in quantum physics or any of the more absurd hallucinogenic concepts of cosmology.
It seemed to me that if it makes up that much of the universe’s mass, it could very well be inhabited and that all it would take to perceive things that were previously imperceptible would be to change the receiving characteristics of consciousness through the chemical changes that occurred with DMT.
DMT might be the conduit via which we interact with other animals.”
We’ve previously spoken about how sophisticated extraterrestrial technology and dark matter could be connected. We were taken aback to learn that Strassman has publicly stated his idea that DMT might be the key to communicating with aliens who live on other levels of reality made up of dark matter and other planes of existence in the cosmos.
In the film Enter the Void, DMT is linked to Tibetan Buddhist cosmology teachings on the Six Realms of the Book of the Dead; it is a doorway to the afterlife and rebirth.
