The DMT Molecule and the Pineal Gland
What actually is the DMT molecule ?
DMT(N,N-DMT) or N,N-Dimethyltryptamine is a molecule from the tryptamine family . The DMT molecule can be naturally found in many animal and plant species including humans .
In his book "DMT:The Spirit Molecule" , Richard Strassman says that DMT , one of the most powerful naturally occurring psychedelics , can establish a constant and reliable connection between different realms of existence . That it can carry our consciousness to other dimensions and parallel universes . The native South American population has a long lasting connection with the DMT molecule . It is an important part of the spiritual practices and shamanic traditions of the indigenous population . The spirit molecule is the main ingredient in the sacred brew of Ayahuasca and the Yopo sniff . It has been their portal to the divine realms and their way to communicate with the spirits . The DMT molecule possesses unique properties . It tunes our minds differently . It can open our eyes for the world and to teach us how see it differently .
In regard with the DMT molecule and its effect Alexander Shulgin wrote in his book “Tryptamines I Have known and Loved” :
“How long will this last, this delicious feeling of being alive, of having penetradet the veil which hides beauty and wonders of the celestial vast? It doesn’t matter, as there can be nothing but gratitude for even a glimps of what exists for these who can become open to it ”
What is the pineal gland ?
The French philosopher Rene Descartes called it the “seat of the soul”. The pineal gland is positioned on the best and the most protected place in our heads . Right in the middle of the brain . Furthermore it is the only part of the human brain that doesn't have its specular projection in both hemispheres . The pineal gland may look small and insignificant , but the studies has found that it is crucial for the physical , mental and the spiritual health of the individual . This small cone-shaped gland also releases melatonin , which regulates the sleep cycle . Many believe that the pineal gland is the so called Third Eye . The invisible organ that can pierce to realms beyond our own .
The relation of the DMT molecule and the pineal gland .
According to Sergio Felipe de Oliveira , doctor of science at the University of San Paulo, and director at the Pineal Mind Clinic, the activation of the pineal gland is closely related to consciousness altering experiences like these in visionary and meditative states .
Richard Strassman suggests that the DMT molecule is naturally produced by the pineal gland . It produces DMT in large quantities during mystical experiences , dreaming , birth and death . In his research on the DMT molecule Richard Strassman has worked together with the British scientist David Deutsch - a theoretical physicist at the University of Oxford and author of the book: “The fabric of reality” . They discussed the possibility that the DMT molecule can alter the brain functions in such a manner , that the consciousness as to become capable of entering parallel universes . The physicist doubted this possibility , as accordingly to him such thing would require a quantum computing .
“could distribute components of a complex task among vast numbers of parallel universes" he says "and then share the results. One of the conditions required for quantum computing is a temperature close to absolute zero.”
However Strassman notes that the DMT molecule is a key substance that alters the physical properties of the brain . Because of that it may be is possible the quantum computation to occur in a regular temperature.
According to the scientific studies the pineal gland becomes visible in the human fetus on the 49th day .
This is also when the gender of the fetus is determined . Accordingly to the Tibetan Bon - 49 days is the time needed for the soul to reincarnate to the next life . Strassman goes even further in his suggestions and connects the DMT molecule with a significant event in the life circle :
“When our individual life force enters our fetal-body, the moment in which we become truly human, it passes through the pineal and triggers the first primordial flood of DMT.”
Many describe the DMT experience as a journey . A journey to other dimensions , a meeting with entities unfamiliar to us . These who has worked with the spirit molecule , describe it as something real , rather than just simple hallucination . The DMT molecule has changed the lives of many . It has showed them a different path . It has brought them to places otherwise unreachable .
The pineal gland and the DMT molecule exist in close collaboration .
They are responsible for many of the most sacred experiences we have . Together they form a sort of organ with unique properties . We still don’t have the scientific answer on what the DMT molecule really is , why it is produced in the pineal gland and how this affect us as human beings . Later studies proved that the DMT molecule has a variety of applications . It has proven quite successful in treating mental problems like PTSD , anxiety and depression . Furthermore , everyone can now buy DMT online . This gives a whole new field of opportunities for explorers and psychonauts to work with the Spirit molecule and to analyze it from another perspective . A perspective rather different than the pure scientific approach .
Maybe the truth about the DMT molecule and the pineal gland lies beyond science , beyond reason , beyond our universe …
