PBbytes - I strongly suspect that there are mutual apriori agreements involved in some of this. The film Avatar comes to mind.

PBBytes - I totally get this feeling. When I look back on how I've reached my own metaphysical conclusions I see an Initiation, the postfacto knowledge that I was indeed led. .

PBBytes - there's a sign of higher intelligence, being able to spin one's departure in a way that the other finds "very" beneficial!

PBBYtes - One final question. The image I have of Ayahuascans is one of group activity; people going off to South America mainly, all gathering around a shaman, imbibing as one. You sound like you've gone solo with DMT and long and deep that way? Am I right? I would think that your experience doesn't get diluted from group think, with the Messaging being uncluttered.
Does that describe you, and what are your thoughts on the matter of doing DMT solo vs in groups?
