Great post! Maybe this should be a separate thread.
I appreciate your efforts to integrate a number of diverse themes and topics familiar to veteran GHMB and AOM participants--and you've certainly identified some links. Your presentation follows an alternative integration by Jude Currivan:
Jude integrates physics with human consciousness, while you associate enlightenment with symbolic metaphors, ultimately translated through experiences with substances (is that correct?).
I'm somewhat familiar with the DMT literature, and have special interests in cognitive processes, and I'm not nearly as convinced about the spiritual significance of "The Spirit Molecule" as is Dr. Strassman.
