Our brain naturally produces it in our sleep. When we have a near death experience the Pineal Gland excretes a large amount of it into our bodies, causing our ‘Out of Body Experiences’. But what is it really? DMT can be explained as such:
“N,N-DMT is a psychoactive chemical in the tryptamine family, which causes intense visuals and strong psychedelic mental effects when smoked, injected, snorted, or (when taken with an MAOI such as haramaline) when swallowed orally. N,N-DMT is most often called just “DMT”, although this name sometimes causes confusion with its chemical cousin 5-MeO-DMT. N,N-DMT is present in thousands of species of plants and has been used traditionally in South America both in Ayahuasca brews and snuffs since at least the time of first European contact. N,N-DMT gained significant notoriety in the last 15 years from Terence Mckenna’s many glowing rants about the strange visions it can precipitate.”
For as long as history has known anceint civilizations have been ingesting DMT as part of a ritualistic tradition to help them contact the spirit world. Modern science has taken a look at this, especially Dr Rick Strassman in his book titled ‘DMT – The Spirit Molecule’. Could this chemical be the missing link between our reality and the higher levels of conciousness? We won’t be able to find that out for sure until underhanded drug profiteering that is occuring around the world by the highest echelons of our governments stop – and they actually start utilizing these natural substances for the benefit of the human race. Here are some awesome links for more research.
