Hi Seasmith,

I must admit, I still like the esoteric theosophical descriptions (etheric realm, astral realm, devachanic realm, etc.). It’s evident that science re-baptises with new nomenclature, for example: hyperspace.

...even the most hard boiled materialist has to recognize that there is something between the physical existance and spirit.

I’d really like to think so - thankfully, that seems to be the general direction of travel.

The question of psychedelic nomenclature is intriguing. From my layperson perspective, I see some of those those within academia, relative to this topic, exceptionally keen to coin the next widely used descriptive. I have given the matter some thought and particularly enjoy ‘psychedelic’, on the basis it defines as mind-manifesting. That’s arguably what occurs under psychedelic inebriated, and is, in my opinion, especially appreciable with DMT inebriation, because the substance not only manifests one’s mind-stuff (or whatever nomenclature is eventually agreed upon), but arguably also attracts the attention of powerful minds from hidden nature (non-physical entities, or whatever nomenclature is eventually agreed upon). I’m also comfortable with using ‘entheogen’ (‘generating the divine within’) but I’m not sure that’s it’s consistently and comprehensively apt.

...because ultimately the aim of the experience is after all, transcendence.

In pursuance of the mystical, yes indeed, that’s the ultimate aim. But what about a psychonaut wanting to engage with non-physical entities and subjectively investigate the esoteric mechanics behind those interactions? In that scenario ‘entheogen’ doesn’t seem quite so accurate.

In DMT & My Occult Mind 2 - not wanting the academics to have free reign on nominating psychedelic nomenclature - I proposed Pneumadelic (Pneuma being Ancient Greek for ‘breath’, and in a religious context refers to spirit or soul, and delein/delic to manifest) - Spirit Manifesting. It’s novel, but I don’t believe it’s comprehensively apt.

One place to look for clues is in the often similar phenomena of NDE's.

Absolutely agree! NDE literature had a significant impact on my outlook pre-DMT and some of what I had read really came to the forefront of my mind after multiple experiences with DMT. Thank you for the recommended reading, which I have bookmarked. The following are also recommended to me and are sitting upon my bookshelf:
