Ray, the only way for you to answer this question is by trying Aya yourself, then you won't need others to make the same subjective comparison for you.
In the meantime, I strongly suggest that you don't judge it.
I intend to try Aya, eventually BECAUSE if the testimonials of others. I'm reminded of Rick Strassman's work on DMT: as I recall, in his government sanctioned studies he came away finding that most subjects ranked their one DMT sessions as among the most richly spiritual experiences in their entire lives.
And on that note I would like to invite Daniel to discuss his Aya experienced, perhaps in a new thread.
What"s so great about it Daniel?
