Drugs, Inc.: DMT: A Psychedelic New Drug
A user explains how a new drug called DMT causes users to hallucinate and black out.
WOW, this is a terrible presentation of DMT. First of all,it is plant matter that teaches you. It is not a recreational act. It is done in a ceremonial setting. DMT is not comparable to crack and other drugs. It is magic, and thru it,the veil is lifted.All realms exposed. Sound waves and all that is is revealed. It is not something you want to do again right away. It can be frightening to all of a sudden know all truths. Best thing one needs to do in preparing to partake is to rid of fear judgement greed or any negative behaviors.Have your body fit and healthy for traveling around the astral realm. DMT comes to you when knowledge and truth is to be discovered. I don't like the depiction of this shabby video FAILING to represent the truth about spirt matter. DMT is extremely sacred. It is true magic.:.I feel for those who portray it wrongly or abuse its essence.
Around 18 years ago i started to wake in the night and experience vivid hallucinations. I would see alien faces swirling with colours, these colours would be shining with light. I would see complex mathematical equations, fingerprints that would spiral fractals of colour and light, forests of colour and light. Only recently have i heard of DMT. I now know that this is what i have been experiencing for all of these years, nothing else can describe the things that i have been seeing. I only ever see these hallucinations in the night, after waking from a dream. I suffer from migraine headaches and see visual disturbances in the day time and i think this has something to do with what i see in the night. I have never heard of anyone else experiencing these hallucinations without taking an external dose of DMT. I have been researching tryptides and think this has something to do with my migraines and nocturnal hallucinations. I certainly think DMT needs to be researched further, it is an interesting chemical and should not be treated as a 'Drug'. Has anyone else ever had any hallucinations when waking from a dream? They tend to be closed eye hallucinations, with vivid colours and light seems to shine from the colours. By the way, i do not suffer from any mental health problems such as schizophrenia, i do not take drugs and i do not believe in aliens or gods etc. I am intrigued by the the whole experience of these hallucinations and am interested to see if anyone else has experienced this?
Really? DMT is not new. Nor is it a "drug"... I've seen it change peoples lives for the better. It has been used by shamans for a very very long time. People who are terminally ill have used ayahuasca (aka dmt)to come to terms with their death. And they did. Also, DMT is produced in small amounts in your own brain!! I believe it is a medicine and should not be taken for fun. How many people have had hallucinations and blacked out on pharmaceutical drugs.. Make an episode about that
DMT is pure truth. It is absolutely wonderful to see people commenting on this video and rightfully defending the gorgeous substance. The fact is that DMT is sacred and enlightening, and it carries itself with integrity, as shown all over the internet with comments like the two left here by Justin and Nick. My point is, we don't have to argue about whether DMT is 'good' or 'bad'. If you've tried it and have experienced a full-blown connection with the "other", you simply know. All else is a lie, all else is an attempt at manipulation or just a flat-out display of ignorance. It's very, very silly. Go toward the truth - it's easy to see.
DMT is an intelligence, and it's alive and it works through us for the good of all things... Sound familiar?
Woah, I really hope nat geo doesn't go on and make dmt seem cool, or "new"... Dmt is medicine in more ways than one. It would be nice to see if the use of dmt to treat addictions like alcohol, cocaine, or herion are mentioned. In many cases, patients completely come off the drugs after several 'breakthrough' doses. A breakthrough, for those who don't know, is when the user smokes enough of the substance to have a complete level 5 psychedelic experience. It is extremely safe considering the LD-50 is [possibly] hundreds of times higher than any possible means of taking it because the user would fall asleep long before ever reaching that point, also its metabolized and broken down extremely fast, and is produced endogenously in the brain and lungs. its kind of hard to overdose on something that isn't toxic at all on the body.
This is where the user loses complete touch with reality as we know it, leaves the body, and enters a state of consciousness that experiences 4 and 5 dimensional reality instead of the 3 we're familiar with. This place that the consciousness goes most would call Heaven. It is to experience your death, and come back again, parallel to a NDE or Near Death Experience. Most people would say this as being a 'life changing, religious experience' that can completely change a person's outlook on life, the meaning of life/purpose of existing as they know it, relationships, improving ones self, and to help others. Users become humbled, more sympathetic/apathetic, completely lose fear of the anxiety associated with death/dying, depression is either greatly reduced, or gone completely, and in some cases people may develop emotions and senses they never had previously.
The level 5 experience:
With all that said, I really hope this doesn't butcher DMT, a substance that demands so much respect. Psychedelics (Tryptamines specifically, DMT, Psylocybin, Bufotenin, etc) and cannabis are the future of medicine. DMT is not a recreational drug, it isn't for everyone. DMT is a tool for knowledge, and a medicine for the mind and soul. Respect the substance.
Thanks, Nick for your comment. :)
Wow, National Geographic... nice making out DMT as some new, sinister substance. I'm sure the interviewee is really, really happy about your sinister twist. Is, "May cause psychosis" something you mob just stick on every illicit drug? Coz, it's starting to sound ridiculous. COFFEE may cause psychosis... working too long hours may cause psychosis... seriously guys! Psychosis is something that can occur under a great myriad of circumstance. DMT, which is a class of chemical similar to serotonin is a terribly interesting substance that many regard quite highly and with a certain kind of reverence. It'd be nice if, instead of acting like the rest of the tabloid trash, you listened to your interviewees with more care, put your ignorant bias to the side and perhaps read a bit of the literature available on DMT.
Also - DMT is NOT new. LSD is newer. And that's 60+ years old... which would not generally be referred to as new.
You rightly expressed your concern about holding the proper perspective when approaching the subject of the sacred herbs. The second and a very important concern often missed in any discussion on DMT or Ayahuasca is that in taking these compounds externally (unnaturally), one does so without the regulation and balance benefits of the pituitary gland. Our brain consciousness bandwidths, especially the higher bandwidths were designed as a complex system which is regulated by the pituitary gland.
I say the following from my Cree Shamanic perspective. Hitting a DMT pipe is like discovering a Ferrari in the drive way and redlining the engine in neutral, yes the exhaust pipes sound great but you are not going anywhere. That's not to say there is no value in the DMT experience but after the joy riding part of it, lets get serious and use it as it was intended.
Peace and Bandwidth.
@John Smith My younger brother experienced those hallucinations as a child. He also has migraines. He has begun to experiment with DMT and he does believe in gods and aliens. The association you made seems very realistic to me. My brother is demonstrating some psychotic features, but he is also doing drugs so it's impossible to know if the cause is organic or chemically based.... Have you learned any more about it since you last wrote that? I appreciate you sharing your story here!
@John Smith Hey John, you should do some research on this guySrinivasa Ramanujan, he is one of the greatest mathematicians to ever live. He claims that these formulas came to him in a dream.
You may have some active brain chemicals going on.... totally normal and to not have brain glandular secretions going on is really the problem with the world today.
I have experimented with DMT and have now learned to access these brain chemicals organically from my pituitary and pineal glands. Most of what you can find about DMT online is from cosmic cowboys who are fearlessly venturing forth into transdimensional space. What these consciousness cowboys do not yet realize is that the pineal gland and its dmt secretions are part of a larger integrated system. My own research tells me that pineal gland DMT should only be driven from the pituitary glad as that is how we were engineered and designed.
This is important work and I just wish Terrance McKenna had lived long enough to learn to access his own brain chemicals. You can be busted for smoking DMT but not for squirting it in your brain (at least not yet). When I say important work I mean that we live in an insane world because we do not know how to use the brain at the higher bandwidth levels and because there is no place to learn this important work. We each are responsible for operating a powerful biological entity with complex software and hardware and they forgot to leave the owners manual.
I have put online simple instructions to access your own brain chemicals on a blog. See: http://fukushima50.blogspot.ca/
It still amazes me that what supposedly distinguishes us from the beasts in consciousness and yet we live on a planet with 7.5 billion people and not a single school of consciousness exists. How messed up is that?
A normal alpha state of consciousness is about 2000 bytes/sec and when we brain chemical kick it up we can go past the dosage blink-out point and skip into the delta brain state and 4 billion bytes/sec bandwidth.
I believe that civilizations come and go... they fail when they achieve a technological prowess without the corresponding gains in consciousness to be able to transcend the primal limits and we are near that fail point again.
Problem solving becomes quite simple at the higher brain bandwidths and I have now learned to make gold from silica dioxide using LENR interferometry with a home grown microsmelt lab. To see a Kickstarter preview vid, go to: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/56975959/1553855031?token=23604946 Making gold is really quite simple but I would never had the mind to do this work without a functioning relationship with reality and nature and certainly not with out the pituitary and pineal glands.
step into the realms of the unknown
nice post, dmt is not ayahuasca though...dmt is a reactive triggered in your brain by several ways, one of them, ayahuasca...
@Erica Tilghman-Gust THANK YOU! NG IS NOTHING BUT PROPAGANDA BULLS*T!
@Justin Otte @Nicholas Hatcher Justin-None of what you said is really accurate. You are just describing a few common experiences on DMT. Early psychonauts that experienced IV DMT HCl said they felt it was similar to a dream, and NDE. Later Terrence Mckenna said the same thing about smoked DMT freebase There isn't any scientific research to support those things you're saying, just feelings. If you believe your feelings before they're substantiated by experiments, you're gullible. The easiest person to fool is yourself; all psychedelic compounds teach us this integral lesson. Experience doesn't speak to anything, it only speaks to experience.
@John Searcy @Nicholas Hatcher right, i agree with you, which is why i say "it is thought to be" rather than establishing what i said as fact. its all in theory unless proven otherwise, of course! question everything, and answer questions with questions. there is never a final answer, only more clues to the fill in the bigger picture. peace be with you.
