Thanks to you all for making this such an enjoyable and rewarding experience. I really had a lot of fun here and feel I’ve kindled a few friendships. I will do my utmost to keep in touch with those who made this experience memorable and magical. I genuinely appreciated everyone’s input, and even though I’ll miss engaging in this space, I’m grateful that I was given the opportunity to be here. The

Hi Seasmith Have to say, I sincerely enjoyed reading what you wrote and how you phrased it. The latter half of your last but one line really aroused my curiosity: Quote ...bearing mind that it is the User's energy that is being used up. I’m intrigued by that. I have wondered whether repeatedly and powerfully projecting my ‘astral beacon’ through using DMT should be considered as health

Hello Justin Thanks for commenting here - you’re not too late at all! My position on entities being non-physical beings from hidden nature (rather than products of my mind alone) stems from my practical research smoking DMT within both indoor and outdoor settings and particularly by maintaining a preference for experimenting with eyes open and daylight or illuminated conditions. Had my

Hey Drew Quote Can you think about situations where you have acted as though you were slightly influenced by DMT but had none at all in your system? Yes indeed! It’s like I said to PBB, I suspect exogenously administered DMT alters the pristine normalcy of the pineal gland; evident to me as a very subtle but nonetheless significant increase in my stream of consciousness, which has increased

Intriguing reading! Was the kundalini experience from a meditative practice? Quote experience that began with the sensation of a switch being turned on in the physical centre of my head - that being the general location of the Pineal. Very interesting, because I recall the commencement of a DMT experience wherein I had very pronounced interiorly perceptible and interiorly audible ‘click’ of

QuoteThis suggests to me that you have acquired an unusually heightened sense of the reciprocal nature or your inner and outer worlds - one that you seemed to have concluded must carry over from DMT into your mundane interacts which DMT has somehow informed you are far less mundane than previously imagined. How am I doing on that...? Sounds pretty good to me PBB! It also brings to mind a passag

QuoteIf you do read this before the end of the month, I hope you will quote one message which has made a significant impact on the world and which has not already been said one way or another before. And, yes, I do think you will not find such a one!! It’s unrealistic to expect significant global impact from a single passage taken from a book on such a rarefied topic. Perhaps the subtitle misle

That’s an enjoyable read, Drew! I especially savoured the following: Quote...we're all still in a great big womb, being supplied with so much of what we need in order to grow, and yet we have little idea what is awaiting our 'birth'... Quote experiences look to be one of two things: the mind offering up hidden parts of itself in order for them to be aware and have relevance in their exi

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. Quote...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

Hi Yve, Thanks for sharing that link and for your thought-provoking comment. The link is certainly of interest to me. I understand by the ‘little death’ you are referring to where one’s ego dissolves - to some degree - through psychedelic inebriation. I’ve experienced that more on LSD and on psilocybin, than I have with DMT. The Spirit Molecule is unusual and quite unique in that more of

Hi PB, To answer this, I’ll first refer to my smoked DMT experiences, wherein oftentimes my sense of self and my capacity for rational cognition remained intact (a surprising and somewhat unique effect for such a potent psychedelic). This to the extent I feel sure I had capacity to hold normal conversation with, say my wife - despite it appearing that I’m in an exceptionally hyper-defined real

Hi Drew, Where to begin? I read that fully and thoughtfully - links included. Hmm! Without wanting to appear overly gushing, I’ll measure my reply to a short and sweet respectful admiration (and a healthy degree of intrigue) to both you and your post! Okay, due praise paid, the question of fragrant smells and entities is a fascinating one. I do believe that is entirely possible, and I ven

Hi Drew, That was a long read but it wasn’t time wasted! I think I have a grasp of the gist of what you state. And it was impressive hearing how you could control your mind to seemingly control or restrict the extent of expression from a herpes simplex virus. I can buy that! Am I correct in reading that you’re essentially saying the DMT experience and perceived entities are all products of br

QuoteDick, if I may, can you ask the differences that you notice, and how that changes the way you interact and react to the machinations of real world business as usual and the prevailing dourness that seems to accompany it so often... A wonderfully thought-provoking question. If I understand what you’re asking - and I can only really answer specific and limited to perceived changes in my pers

Hi, QuoteMy understanding of people on aya is that some can function quite normally while on it.... I'm thinking basic stuff, like going into supermarkets and being able to buy things without calling attention to yourself, or getting petrol...Thoughts? I’ve not heard of people undertaking those everyday basic activities under the influence of ayahuasca and I wouldn’t recommend it or seek to

Hi, QuoteSo, you see aya ceremonies as being recommended, but not enough to go to South American yet enough to find one in the UK... I would definitely recommend an ayahuasca ceremony to anyone that feels they may benefit from the experience. I suppose the majority of attendees undertake some prior research and have an outline idea of what’s involved. I would jump at the chance to experienc

QuoteThe image I have of Ayahuascans is one of group activity...what are your thoughts on the matter of doing DMT solo vs in groups? Smoked DMT, I certainly preferred to be on my own and I suspect that preference will continue. I haven’t smoked DMT in a group setting. Going long and deep with smoked DMT experiences is relative. The autobiographical books truthfully document what capacity of cou

Hi PBB, QuoteInvasive is a very interesting term, but I doubt that you mean it in a necessarily coercive sense...? You’re correct. Even though invasive was the most accurate descriptive I could think of, I’m conscious that it has the potential to conjure up discomforting feelings. I think it’s relevant to say that I was seemingly led, by degrees, into this aspect of the experience, and I don

SD: Why, if such 'beings' actually existed outside of the human imagination, do they need a human to take DMT to produce them? DK: I don’t believe the human taking DMT produces them, but I do believe the human taking DMT gives them licence (on a one-to-one basis) to profoundly interact with the user in a manner that is beyond the users imaginative capacity.

Hey Susan, I was thinking of you only yesterday. I’ll return to that momentarily. ‘Lite’ in the title differentiates between the original and retired DMT & My Occult Mind and this much smaller revised version: DMT & My Occult Mind - Lite. The original was too wordy, in my opinion, comprising >200,000 words. The Lite version was whittled down to ~45,000 words. Lite was (and st

Hi, Just to acknowledge and thank you for sharing those thoughts. I appreciated your mention of alcohol (I remain abstemious since beginning my research in earnest), and I especially enjoyed with your comment referencing telescopes and microscopes. Those same thoughts have passed my mind. How incredible that with DMT we become an instrument of uncommon perception into unseen realities. More t

Hi Drew Thanks again for your very encouraging comments about the article. You ask simple questions, but I find I cannot answer them without some considerable mental effort. I guess that’s a long-winded way of saying they are thought-provoking - and welcome!

Hi PB Bytes, Thanks for your kind comment about the article and for such a welcome and thought-provoking question. 1st question: It seems to me that progression was a factor of being persistent in commitment and wilful observation, coupled with being subtly led, by degrees, from the visual to the invasive and then, when outdoors, the revelatory experiences whereby a magnificent and size

Hi Mo, During the initial stages of my research I was absolutely open-minded because I genuinely did not know what I was experiencing, but I was very determined to find out. As the hallucinatory aspects began to diminish, I was far better able to appreciate those very powerful non-physical beings that are behind these interactions and from whose constitution the illusory scenery (be it clowns,
