DMT or Dimethyltryptamine is one the strangest/mysterious molecules known to man. When smoked or ingested DMT can cause intense visions and cause users to enter a completely different "environment" that some have likened to an alien or parallel universe. The transition from our world to theirs occurs with no cessation of consciousness or quality of awareness. Almost all people encounter these foreign "beings" which communicate with the user. The beings appear to inhabit this parallel realm. The DMT experience has the feel of reality in terms of detail and potential for exploration. The creatures encountered are often identified as being alienlike. Almost all users believe the experience with these beings in the "other world" are in fact real.
Even author Terence McKenna has used DMT and feels that, "Right here and now, one quanta away, there is raging a universe of active intelligence that is transhuman, hyperdimensional, and extremely alien... What is driving religious feeling today is a wish for contact with this other universe." The aliens seen while using DMT present themselves "with information that is not drawn from the personal history of the individual."
People who have used DMT feel that the molecule is a bridge between the physical world and spirt world. They feel that humans are supposed to have access to this molecule through their pineal gland since it's naturally found in the human brain and releases when someone dies. Interestingly enough, its potentially found in all living beings. The question is why? Why do all living things have the capacity to naturally produce DMT? What role does DMT have on life and even death?
