not that i want to stick up for palin, but i don't think this is that bad. she was given the phone by an aid and told that it was sarkozy--why would she doubt it? and yeah, he starts asking ridiculous questions and saying some stupid shit, but she was led to believe it was sarkozy, and she sounds like she's just trying to be diplomatic with him. even if he's saying some ****ed up shit it's really not her place, if she IS talking to a head of state, to put them in their place or to start correcting them if they are factually incorrect.

I kinda agree with Msun. She probably should have caught on eventually mind you.
I actually thought that the news guy in the next video if you let it keep playing was even dumber. He kept saying that they should have realized that those were bad fake French accents. Meanwhile those guys are actually French and they were real accents.

Haha yea I saw that too, however I thought he meant she should have been able to distinguish from a France french accent and a Montreal one, not too hard to do, however to someone who has probably never met a french person, I guess it would make the task more difficult. Still, 7 minutes in she still had not caught on.

They were saying that it took several days to set it up. Her advisers likely told her that this call was coming for a few days. Then when she gets the call she is likely a little nervous and it's a French sounding guy. Why wouldn't she think it was him?

I really don't think she should be VP and I am pulling for Obama big time, but I gotta be fair. It isn't like she was sitting at home and the guys just called randomly.

yeah, the truth is, i wouldn't put those sorts of comments past berlusconi... they were outlandish, certainly, but just because somebody is a head of state does not necessarily mean they have tact or class.

it's kind of ridiculous that she didn't seem to catch on towards the end, but like HP said, she must have had some doubts. she was in a bad position, though. if she says something condescending or puts this guy down, and it turns out to really be sarkozy, she could hurt the campaign, so i think she was just treading carefully.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TGJaZNxDGok

wow! i LIKE!!!! i know the breakdown of genres is a complete waste, but since you're asking about it, i figured i'd mention... it's not death metal, it'd be more likely classified under some sort of hardcore (to the naked ear... it's all the same, but metal and hardcore have vast differences... not to be confused with vas deferenses which would be the muscles in your penis), more than likely subgenred as a relatively technical brand of electrocore light on the electro. in my opinion, it's pretty f'n solid though. the lead vocalist is ballin, and the lead guitar is clean... they would DEFINITELY get the pit jumpin. i'd give it about a 6 or 7 out of 10. it would be higher if the lead guitar was a little more technical (ie. chaotic, frenetic, but precise). :cheers2:

oh and so as not to come off as some sort of elitist prick. i know that in the grand scheme of things, hardcore would technically be subcategorized under metal, but as an avid hardcore fan and a former huge metal fan... there IS a difference. you listen to enough of it and it kind of jumps out at you. most metal to me, these days, is boring, but hardcore has more of an edge to it (but not that christian militant straight edge "we're better than you cause you drink" type of hardcore. attitude plays out on a fretboard in the style that i get down on!).

you'll often hear hardcore referred to as "math metal."

LSD is good. But it's easily DMT >>>> LSD as far as psychedelics/hallucinogens are concerned.... I mean, if you really want to step out of yourself and go to another universe to experience the ride of your life, and expand your mind like you never have before and never will again, that's the ticket..... For a lot of people it is a life changing experience for the better, not just some trip with a few trails, brighter colors and some giggles.

Someone describing DMT in the link I provided. And I agree 100%.. Been 7 years since I last tried the stuff. But damn holy smokes what a journey. Nothing remotely close to that ever.. BTW, I don't care for the "feel good" drugs, never did- why I would never try heroin as it's like an orgasm times 1000- and I would never try the ego boosting drugs like coke.. hate that sh*t and know I wouldn't like it as I used to hang around some monkeys who liked coke all the time- don't want to be like that, ever... I care for the mind expanders.. Or at least "cared" for them years ago.


Ever wanted to fly a rocket ship? That is what is feels like. Blasted off really fast into the vast unknown of your consciousness.

You completely leave your body and explore the wonders of what only you can create!

DMT is like experiencing Kundalini awakening without the years of meditation and mantra practices.

LOL.. Funny, that's what most of them say about people like you.. Not that I am condoning the use of drugs or anything...

And why is toking different ? Why is alcohol different ? Why is nicotine different ? Lung cancer, directly related to smoking, is one of the top killers.. Obesity leads to heart disease, is yet another top killer.. Why aren't you complaining about McDonalds since crap like that kills so many people everyday? The truth is, abuse of anything is bad. But done responsibly, and moderately, there is nothing wrong with it. Just like you don't think marijuana is bad.

The scientist who invented LSD lived till he was 102 and was in perfect health throughout his life. Didn't matter that he took hundreds of hits, if not more. Because he did it responsibly and it was clean.

And they wouldn't take it once in awhile if that experience could be had from a book, don't you think ? unless it's like the book above ;) .. Next time you feel like toking up, or going out drinking with your buddies, stay home and read a book. Because you must be poorly adjusted and under-stimulated.

I love it when hypocrites talk sh*t down.. Toking is okay, for you. And what BB&W and I pointed out aren't even addictive drugs, they're clean. Unlike marijuana for a lot of people, alcohol, other light and hard drugs, and prescription drugs that are very addicting, cigarettes, bad food, which are all addicting and uncontrollable to a lot of people.

I don't mind a joint here and there, very casual with it (maybe 4 times a year), but it's funny that you think a drug that makes you lazy and stupid (and kills brain cells) is okay (not to mention it makes your skin and clothes stink), yet drugs like BB&W and I described you'd rather put down.. And drugs which are clean, non addicting, and are far better experiences than pot.

EDIT - And maybe it's a good idea for you to throw out all your CD's and most of the art (including movies, paintings, music etc etc) you own that has enhanced your life- because........

LN. It's a matter of degree. Binge drinking is not okay...but having a few beers is. Having a few tokes is okay too, but smoking each and every night is alittle much.

It doesn't have to be all or not. I drive 120 km/h on the highway, but that doesn't mean I condone going 150 km/h.

Indulging in alcohol or weed (which I don't do) as a relaxant I can justify. Going on a hallucination trip I can't. And you can't say it's harmless...just cause one guy lived a long life. Lots of smokers live long lives, but that doesn't suggest that cigarettes are bad.

Obviously my post was meant to be inflammatory. I don't actually think picking up a book is an alternative. I just have never been able to condone the use of heavy drugs, no matter how clean you claim them to be.

During my third year of university i lived with a guy who would smoke up about a dozen times a day. He spent the entire year stoned and didn't think anything was wrong with it. At one point during the year he tried to stop smoking up, this was prompted after he got a paper back from one of his courses. The TA literally wrote on it "were you high when you wrote this?"
His abstinence only lasted a day.

I have no problems with people who like to smoke up every once in a while. Just like i have no problems with those who like to drink every so often. The probelms arise when you do it on a daily basis.

Yeah, forests have a really great effect. In fact, that's the place to be, outside in the countryside.

That DMT was the most amazing and most beautiful experience of my life- aside from my kid being born, getting married and all those things people have to say.

Did it twice, but WOW. Glad it is not addicting. I am sure I will try it for the third and final time in the future. You literally go into another dimension, everything is so clear and beautiful (not blurry like other stuff), you wouldn't believe what you see and where your mind goes.

The thing that bothers me about weed is the people who say it's not addictive. It may not cause chemical dependency, but to quote some comedian "anything that makes you feel great all the time is addictive." A lot of my friend, some of the smartest and most entertaining ones, have stumbled down into a mental pit because of smoking pot every chance they get, 3+ times a day, all the while saying "It's non-addictive."


It's ridiculous that the legalization lobby keeps pimping that point at the expense of many, many less mature users. A 15 year old doesn't know the difference between "Addictive" and "habit forming," so there are hundreds of thousands of tokers who are making no effort at all to make sure it doesn't become a habit or a psychological need.

Interesting HP.. I wrote which by far the best musical composition on guitar I ever wrote while tripping on shrooms (can't do that on DMT as it takes you to another world and it's too intense to write something because you're so busy and blown away by the magnificent beauty).

To this day people will come over and it's always the same reaction- "that sh*t sounds magical", "why aren't you on tour?", "one of the best things I ever heard" etc etc etc.

Okay, I just heard the whole thing on that youtube clip. Last heard it a couple years ago so bare with me.

Let me add that you do remember and have recall, he said it is fleeting but it isn't.. Because I remembered, clearly. My hypothesis is that he took the 5-DMT while I took the nn-DMT (as it shows on the video)..

If everyone tried this stuff just once, and only once, and connected with the other side of their minds, I am convinced that it would be a much MUCH better world.. It has that much of a profound and powerful effect. It totally wakes you up and makes you see yourself and everything around you in a totally different/better/much more beautiful light..
It's unlike anything else.. Again, the most powerful, and by far the most beautiful experience I have ever had

I love how people's natural reaction is to literally put yourself at the door so that you literally have an escape/flight path out of an uncomfortable situation.

I remember when I was younger and you'd click a title on rotten.com and I would literally have my eyes squinted and leaning back from the computer waiting for the picture to load (back when it was dial up) and occasionally I would get half way through the picture and either say... "oh that's not that bad............... or HELL NO, I don't need to see anymore thank you."

You ever see the guy in the emergency room from a motorcycle accident and no helmet???? let's just say his head is okay, yet the entire bottom half of his face is gone, and his jaw has teeth on either side of the opening.. like predator or the vampires in Blade 3. Nasty.

This is similar to my experience in the 2nd experience here, and part of the first account in feeling too, however mine was better. Again, I would have to write a book to describe it's beauty (and even then, it still could never fully be explained). Because it is just about impossible to describe it's beauty when you see the universe all around with no depth perception like your eyes see, and not like looking at a picture on a piece of paper or a movie screen. It's far better.. See and "feel" complex machines this world has never seen or ever will see, so deeply, that you totally understand every intricate detail of their inner workings... You are in a total other dimension of all knowing and power, not just with what you see, but it's far more deep than that spiritually.

I think it's how you feel as a spirit in the afterlife- my conclusion. And I have absolutely no fear of dying as a result. There is no sense of time. Your ego is totally stripped, there is absolutely no concept of ego whatsoever. And the colors you never knew even existed, and beings, WOW. In my experience I felt loved like I have never felt before, not even close. Imagine all the people that have loved you in life, your parents, spouse, kids, family etc, then condense a lifetime of love into 1 minute, then multiply it by 10 million times.... I felt like I was seated in the hand of the pure all-loving God while he was giving me a tour of the universe. Not only did I just feel like it, but it was so clear and real that I am convinced I did. Nobody can tell me otherwise. The human mind alone cannot ever grasp and possibly imagine such beauty, it's just impossible. I heard The Doors wrote "Break on Through" (to the other side) via their experiences with DMT.

http://www.bluelight.ru/vb/showthread.php?t=260170

"DMT

That's three letters spelling a four letter word.

But are you sure?

The universe is enclosed in a hard shell the size of a pea, under high pressure. Now imagine placing that within the middle of your brain. Now detonate it. Then imagine you're at the middle of an atomic implosion, the entire universe returning to something the size of a pea. Rushing in faster than speed itself, and its all within your head.

There's very little point in attempting to describe DMT in a rational fashion. Any trip report that tried to encompass what DMT feels like, would come across as word salad. Its such an all encompassing feeling, and yet a nothingness. If God is the concept of a being which is in some way able to be all seeing, all knowing, and all encompassing, present in everything, and yet present in nothing. Then perhaps you could describe DMT as experiencing what GOD is. Except you are merely human, without the ability to withstand such a sensory assault with your dignity and 'self' intact.

Before I presumed that I was a humble man.

I did not understand the meaning of the word.

Now, and only now, can I be truly humble."

"dmt gives new meaning to the word awe for me as well"

"Researching dmt is something I can never get enough of. Every story written is simply the best reading you can find via internet. Some of the most fascinating journeys I have ever learned were dmt reports."

---------------------------------------------------

And-

http://deoxy.org/h_dmtess.htm

Please don't think you know DMT from having read this, you don't. But DO please go and try some, go extract it from a plant - then you will KNOW. Oh, this is my experience, you can ask me any questions you like. Everything here is with closed eyes unless otherwise indicated - this is really the only way to go DEEP.

The small wooden pipe was in my mouth and a match was coming to light it. The scenario almost seemed like smoking pot except I knew the taste to be very wrong as the complex, sweetly acrid smoke filled my lungs. Anyway, my pulse never raced like this from the anticipation of getting stoned.

The first thing was a sense of dropping away, but to say downward would be too simple. There were all sorts of frequency modulations and crescendoed stacatto pops as the trip descended. This sound data was quiveringly involved with these visual architectonic dream waters that were beginning to emerge, dripping and slipping amongst themselves, and my being became overwhelmed by vacuous, gravity-like suction experiences which impelled me further in. Around me I felt a crowding in of beings as if the Celtic Faerie land of Fay had become momentarily co-present with where I was. I sensed them, but did not experience these creatures. The sucking experience took over for a while then, driving the morphological acrobatics of spacelove that lay before me.

There was something about it that makes me think of a voluptuous alien seductress with big, fat lips pulling me to her body in the weirdest feeling embrace ever. It felt like I was being smeared sensually and lustfully around the space in some sort of vacuum-tube funhouse. At this point (maybe a minute into the experience) I started picking up something like the Escher painting of all those sets of stairs with figures descending by all manners of gravity, only its surfaces were emerald isles of what I can only describe as fractal Medusa liquid, serpentine and sexy. There was a thought that I was in a room full of aliens and they were playing with me, but that somehow they had conspired to make me this way - the alien carney music bar on the planet Tatooine in the Star Wars trilogy seems relevant.

Then I had the thought (which just seems to pop up and not really pertain): "What have I done! How did I get this way?" Meaning, how did I come to enter something so foreign that my petty human ontological premises and hopeful body of knowledge seem like a wrench trying to adjust a camel? At that point I lost any touch with my body and was thrust forward into complete and utter amazement. The world became so crammed full of intricacy to the nth that it seemed every nook and cranny in my spacetime was exfoliating little crystalline dancing worlds, bellowing ecstasy. It moved like snakes move: all rippling of muscle and sun glinting scales. I cannot emphasize enough the catapulting, titanic motions of this iridescent zigzag bottlerocket, this nuanced, whittling circus of form, this Brobignagian roller coaster safari across the jeweled plains of wonderland, straining the limits of the knowable.

This is where I was when I felt a certain sort of shockwave across the dome of the sky which gave me memory of the real world. I then entered this whole journey that I would call extrication. Going in was "intrication" or delving into intricacy, so coming back out was sensibly extrication. The experience was very literally an incedible groping back out of this wild wooly thing until I made it "out", which afterwards I realized was only the physical action of opening my eyes. The pipe was in my mouth - its touching my lips had been the reality shockwave I'd felt. The woman who was handling the pipe for me looked like a fractal Medusa as well, but incarnate - she was buzzing all over with this really freaky energy. I said something like, "You expect me to call this a mouth?", a comment which was silenced by the stem of the pipe. One toke and I was out of my body again, yanked back through the scrim of the worlds into the blast furnaces of heaven.

I "came to" in some sense at this point and realized that I could do anything in a space like this, could instantly unfold my richest possible imaginings. "O.K.", I said to myself, "What about trying to do what you believe possible by your perceptual theory of higher dimensional experience?" You see, I got the idea that there is no reason why, in an inner experience, one has to have visions only in front of one. I began to believe this was an imprint that years of bringing the external world into construction of inner spaces had created, but was not necessary. I then tried to imagine what it would be like to see in every direction at once, i.e. what would a ball look like if you could see every side of it at once? I could sense it but not imagine it in my mind. So this is the challenge I set myself. It not only seemed to work (though with everything else going on inside, it was a bit like trying to do a sensitive physics experiment in the midst of a drunken bacchanal) but it did so immediately. I rushed upwards into this superspace that was a spun galactic ecology of stars, a swarming hive of dragonfly constellations. soalien . . This was very profound, but in doing it, it seemed I had reduced the alien quality of what had been going on previous to this excursion.

I let my will go then and tumbled forward into elfland. Terence McKenna is apt in calling these entities "elves". They are elves/not-elves. They don't appear, they kind of ooze out of the woodwork seductively and before you know it they're there - the whole realm is infested with these creatures like nothing else you could ever imagine. They do sing things that are like "self-dribbling jeweled basketballs" or whatever you want to call them. They make Faberge egg concoctions with ingredient lists like: 1) space, 2) lust, 3) politics, 4) circus sideshows, 5) time, 6) gall bladders, 7) existential notions of polyfidelity, 8) cucumbers, 9) Beethoven's 5th symphony, 10) the smell of petunias, and so on. This is somewhat of an arbitrary list, but the point is, all my categories of mind fell away because they were being ceaselessly synthesized and re-synthesized into these hyperdimensional objects, undulating, ululating along. It makes me think of getting home from school when your mother says that she's baked you some treats, only these are like no treats Mom ever made, and when you see them you almost want to say, "Aw, mom, you shouldn't have. I mean you really shouldn't have". What you do with these elves is some sort of a game of catch, only the physics of the game has been replaced by the physics of synesthesia.

In catching the things they threw, in playing with them, I participated in the ineffable mysteries that they were. This place is the Joycean "Merry go raum". Being there I came to understand the Heraclitus fragment: "The Aeon is a child at play with colored balls". It is this. As well I understand, "Still the first day, All Fool's Day, here at the center." It is this too.

So for what seemed like centuries I played with the trippy freaky elves and they kept bringing me into atrium after atrium in the antics annex, and all I could do was wonder when we would get to their front door. As far as I know, we never did. Instead they said many things, though I can't say they used what we would call a voice to accomplish this communication. I remember only parts of this. At first they said, "Build this", indicating hyperspace. Later they amended this by saying, "Build it. He will come." from the movie Field of Dreams. Very funny.

Then it was as though alarms started to go off, and the whole space was going through these quivering emergency elaborations. I get the image of a submarine movie sequence when I think back on this, just when it has been discovered on the surface, the periscope retracts and the whole interior goes into haywire, preparatory gymnastics as all the hatches are battened down. There is a phenomenally high-energy dynamic associated with this part, as they try to get you out and shut the great bronze dancing doors of hyperspace. It is as if everything is charged with imponderable electricities and is racing around because someone shouted: "Places everyone!!" They start cramming your soul out of there with a million hands at once, grabbing you by twelve dimensions you never knew your body had. Finally, the thing shuts and there is a sense of finality to that, but just as soon you are on to the next thing.

Slowly then it begins to make farewells and say its goodbyes. Ancient mythos holds that the world is supported by turtles "all the way down", but as I came out of it, my sense was of jeweled great glass revolving elevators all the way down. I remember thinking that I was passing back through the 50,000 veils that the Sufis say the mystery has, one by one, and I clearly remember the awe I felt that each one of them was closed, sealed, and put away in a unique and voluptuous, succulent Hyperspatial Entelechy way. It was without question the most beautiful goodbye I have known in this life. There was no regret of leaving or longing not to leave, just an overpowering acceptance of the imminent return. This went on and upon opening my eyes I had this very zap experience and I was right back in this world, amazingly enough, only ten minutes gone. Slight tracers on light and then these gone too. I was amazed of the idea that one could go back there, could in fact just go there, that where I had been felt entirely like it was a whole hyperspace, raging right next door.

I remember saying, and being very sure of this as I still am now, "Those are the gods". By which I meant, of all the things I've experienced in life, they are the most like real living gods, and should be called that. It was very interesting to me that I didn't need to process a whole lot, which I usually require after the mushrooms. Instead, I think I was in a state of being so existentially surpassed by the quality of what I had just been a part of, that I couldn't muster any sort of conceptual or descriptive response to it at all. By default, I was left with just a purity of acceptance for it - I just simply had nothing to put to it in any sense. Instead I resorted to looking wildly and deeply into other peoples eyes and by some existential-perceptual force, to impress upon them the utter beauty of what I had just been. This seemed to work somewhat, though probably not. I definitely felt I had been closer to the core of the real than ever before and that this mystery is front and center to who we are as humans, who we really are. I felt very connected to my universe, very sensitive and strong and in touch with things. Because I apparently have the gift of being able to remember it quite well (others do not), I have to live with memory of its being out there somewhere: very real, very powerful, very alive. There has not been an hour to pass since I did it that I haven't thought of it and tried again to reference it to this world, failing.

I do feel it is a very important experience to have as a human being, and in some sense a whole lot safer than mushrooms or acid. I say this because I am aware that I usually have time and opportunity in a traditional trip to come up with weird ideas and believe them which can be hell to integrate when things return to normal. DMT seems to be so awe-inspiring, one is just so floored by it, that there is no chance for trying to figure it out.

And what the hell, just one more experience by someone-

http://www.lycaeum.org/drugs.old/other/gandz/gandz.dmt.html

I exhaled, took a third toke, and was able to hold this last lungful. suddenly i began to hear a loud, moderately high-pitched carrier wave. immediately, the room started vibrating in sympathy. the pattern on the wall hangings oscillated madly in time to the buzzing that overlaid the carrier wave's fundamental tone.

simultaneously, a heavy, trembling feeling swept over my entire body as if i were being propelled at multiple g acceleration by some giant rocket engine. my visual field dissolved in the most amazing colors. i could not see the room over the intensity of the visual effects. the events of the preceding paragraph occurred in the space of a few short seconds.

closing my eyes, i got a glimpse of several entities moving in front of a giant complex control panel. the visions were not crystal clear and seemed as if i were viewing it through a scrim. the creatures were bipedal and of about human size. it was impossible to say more other than they did not move like the giant insect creatures i have seen clearly under the influence of stropharia mushrooms. there was a direct awareness of an overwhelmingly powerful and knowledgable presence! it was neither frightening, nor encouraging. it was just mentally there. a thought came, unbidden, into my head. i realized that i was viewing "god central." the central panel i saw was the control panel for the entire universe.

the vision was fleeting and dissolved into a vision of much greater clarity. a gaggle of elf-like creatures in standard issue irish elf costumes, complete with hats, looking like they had stepped out of a hallmark cards "happy saint patrick's day" display, were doing strange things with strange objects that seemed to be a weird hybrid between crystals and machines.

this vision was also fleeting, and it dissolved into a visual pattern unlike that experienced by me on any other psychedelic or combination of psychedelics. the visuals were interlocking sinusoidal patterns arranged in a japanese chrysanthemum pattern that filled my entire visual field. the pattern was ever-changing and the colors of the individual patterns changed independently of the underlyng pattern. the colors were intense and came in a magnificent variety of colors: metallics, monochromes, pastels, each flickering in and out of existence as if obeying some undetected ordering principle.

an idea came into my head that i was seeing the "true universe" or universe as it really exists. that is to say, i was seeing directly the vibrations of every particles in the universe that "i" was somehow in contact with. "i" was directly "seeing" the universe without ordering it into an arbitrary reality tunnel -- i.e., perceived "solid, objective reality." the visual pattern seemed to be a sort of n-dimensional lissajous curve formed by the intersection of "i" with the shock wave of space-time causality.

the carrier wave remained strong throughout the experience. while definitely the same type of phenomena as the carrier wave heard under the influence of psilocybin mushrooms, the dmt carrier wave was much louder than even the loud carrier wave heard under the influence of ten grams of very potent, dried stropharia mushrooms. also, by comparison to the mushroom experience, the carrier wave sounded as a "purer" tone -- i.e., the sinusoidal component dominated the buzzng component. my throat was too sore from the harsh smoke and the control of my breathing was hindered by the intensity of the expereince, so i was unable to sing or even generate a solid tone, to attempt audio driving of the visuals.

the overwhelming sense of a presence did not disappear when the vision changed to visual patterns, but remained an almost palpable entity as long as the visuals remained intense. i never felt the foreboding -- let alone the direct challenges -- i have felt under the influence of stropharia mushrooms whenever the feeling of contact with the presence has been strong. the presence was just there and very powerful. i felt that i had glimpsed whitehead's god.

the period of intense visuals lasted about eight minutes. the side effects remained unpleasant, but easily ignorable. the dmt left me euphoric and very bemused for about an hour.

definitely far out and very impressive!


-------------------------------------------------------------------------

NOTES ON THE VISUAL STAGES OF A DMT TRIP:

0 - 20 seconds - a scratchiness in the lungs

20 - 30 seconds - a buzzing starts in the ears, rising in tone and volume to an incredible intensity. Its like cellophane being ripped apart (or the fabric of the universe being torn asunder). Your body will vibrate in sympathy with this sound, and you will notice a sharp blood pressure rise. You may feel like you are deeply under water. Wearing a unitard or leotard and tights helps to minimize this sensation. Your visual field will also vibrate in resonance to the sound and will finally be completely obscured by the visions.

30 seconds - 1 minute - You break through into DMT hyperspace. Often at this point, users believe that their hearts or breathing have stopped. This is not true. To an outside observer, you are breathing normally and your pulse, while elevated, is strong. We believe that this subjective effect is due to your "internal clock" being slowed so greatly that the subjective time interval between breaths or heartbeats seems like an eternity. Synthetic DMT has been extensively tested by medical authorities here and in Europe. It is perfectly safe with no lasting physical effects at these doses. However, since smoked DMT causes an abrupt blood pressure increase, it is probably not good for people with abnormally high blood pressure.

1 minute - 2 - 5 minutes - depending on dosage: DMT hyperspace. For all practical purposes, you will no longer be embodied. You will be part of tne intergalactic information network. You may experience any of the following:

* Sense of transcending time or space
* Strange plants or plantlike forms
* The universe of formless vibration
* Strange machines
* Alien music
* Alien languages, understandable or not
* Intelligent entities in a variety of forms

Do not be amazed and do not try to actively direct your observations but merely pay attention. The beings can show you amazing things, but if you try to impose your personal trip on the DMT you will find that you cannot and may become frightened.

At the end of the "flash" of the visions you will have an after-vision of circular interlocking patterns in exquisite colors. It has been described as looking at a vaulted ceiling or dome. If you did not "breakthrough" to the levels described above, this "chrysanthemum" pattern, as we call it, is all you will see. It is worth the trip, too.

You may begin to wonder how you will ever find your way back to your body. If you have taken enough DMT to fully "breakthrough", by the time you can even wonder about it, you are almost back. Trust in your own wetware; your psyche and your body will be reunited. Worrying will only prolong the process.

5 - 12 minutes - The visions have subsided. There are still patterns when you close your eyes, but with eyes open the world is back. At this point a flood of information may rush through your mind. The phase is fleeting. In order to preserve your DMT ideation, we recommend that you begin talking as soon as you come out of the visionary state. Don't try for complete sentences but get as many ideas out as you can while you can. Have a tape recorder running during the trip and you can review your thoughts at a later time.

15 - 30 minutes - The ideation flood subsides leaving you euphoric. You may still have a trace of the vibrations in your body.

30 - 60 minutes - The euphoria subsides.

60+ minutes - You are completely down.

Received two PM's from people since my earlier posts. Thought I would just lay the response here... A lot has to do with your brain releasing DMT the most in 3 stages of life: 1) When you're born 2) When experiencing Death 3) When you're in your dream state.

Just impossible to describe for the reasons I mentioned earlier. I guess the accounts of others is the best way to describe it in the human realm.

http://www.answerbag.com/q_view/349790

Endogenous DMT release has been linked to religious experiences, out of body experiences and alien abduction. It's been speculated that the reason for the presence of DMT in the brain (since it's produced naturally by the pineal gland situated around all the emotional and sensory systems in the brain) is that it is the chemical bind for the soul to the body- as two major DMT releases are a specific period during birth (about the same time that the gender becomes apparent) and before death (the soul leaving).

DMT, reportedly (I haven't had the opportunity to embark on this trip yet) takes you to a completely different dimension. In many cases, the subject has been taken to the same place...There is a feeling of being under an indescribably enormous dome, and specific entities approach you (self-transforming machine elves, as deemed by Terence Mckenna) speaking a strange, high pitched, and rapid language and making gifts for you- also, many times, the gifts are sort of faberge eggs made of many random things- some of which are not actually tangible. Upon smoking it, you are supposed to hear crackling sounds, like plastic wrapper crinkling or a flame- then a high pitched tone that gets higher and higher. You expand- get bigger and bigger, faster and faster until you "break through" The fabric of reality, physically enter a completely entranced state, and jump into this alternate universe. Some thing that this is one of the stages of "heaven" or something similar, in that you can't really get past that stage as passing that area (which seems to be a fixed dome) means never returning.

Terence McKenna described it as such:
"[The feeling of doing DMT] is as though one had been struck by noetic lightning. The ordinary world is almost instantaneously replaced, not only with a hallucination, but a hallucination whose alien character is its utter alienness. Nothing in this world can prepare one for the impressions that fill your mind when you enter the DMT sensorium."

------------------------------------------------------------------

it is absolutly life changing.

lulzhai's did a good job of explaining what a dmt trip is like, but the surprising thing is that everyones dmt trip is almost, or exactly the same. heres how i would explain a dmt trip ( remember that anything i say is VERY under-exagerated because there are simply no english words that even come close to describing any feelings dmt gives you.)

your hear a loud vibrating buzz that gets louder and louder and bigger and wider and you feel like you are being propelled into space, but that is just the very start.
when you actually do "break thru" you dont really realize where or whats going on and have no memory of smoking the dmt. you dont realize whats going on because there is no "you" to realize whats going on. you are simply everything, and nothing at the same time. and that is an extreamly life changing feeling.

you feel like the entire universe is pilled on top of you. and the universe, is a dome of INCREDABLY complex geometric patterns, interchanging and intermingeling within each other. i cannot begin to descirbe to you how astonishing and ridiculously comlicated these patterns are(so astonishing that it can make a normal person like me rabble on like a stoned hippie).

after a little bit of "time" goes by, some sort of beings start to apear in front of you. they are not facing you, but you know they acknowledge you behind them. even tho thease "things" have barley moved they seem indescribingly important.
thease thing were not god. i have talked to people who have apparentlly been in the same situation with a single being who they without a doubt described as the "highest" being.
but anyway i started to come back to earth right after i saw the "things" but lots of other people say they come in contact with several different and seperate visitors who sometimes give objects to you that can seem more precious then life itself.

----------------------------------------------------

I found myself in the universe, and there were alien worlds, and spaceships, and alien beings.
Then I realised that the whole of life is a dream, span out by the mind. When ego is gone, death and birth have no meaning.
And then I was in Nirvana, perfect peace, and universal consciousness.

LN, I appreciate these posts.... they really have me thinking. That two things are possible..

1. DMT allows one to see the universe as it truly is... or
2. That DMT is just a chemical that allows you to see what others have experienced and that they have in the past described as God, and heaven, and transcendentalism.

In other words, is it real, or have we just found out that everything is fake and a creation of a chemical in our mind.

The fact that DMT is pumped into our mind upon death, could be just the bodies way of calming us down before our demise, and that it really is all over. OR it is our soul.

I would absolutely LOVE to try some, but at the same time scared shiitless to. Who knows how much, who knows how pure etc. scary to me.

Hoss, DMT is totally safe to take with absolutely no physical or mental after/side effects. McKenna, one of the most knowledgeable and well versed people in the field, will tell you that it has absolutely no judgemental factors on the mind like other drugs have. It cannot damage your brain or affect your mind.. Because DMT doesn't lay a hand in your judgemental machinery like feeling anxious of a high coming on... Plenty of books on it with plenty of studies on it concluding that. . It has been well documented. Psychedelics are pretty much the safest things you can take when you get it in pure form. And DMT is pretty much the safest of them all. Found in over 1000 plants and in animals. Hell, it's in your brain. You can extract it from plants in the comfort of your own home.

"DMT: The Spirit Molecule", is another good read from what I gather.

But I will tell you that the experience wasn't just a figment of my imagination. It was as real, or far more real in fact, than the air I am currently breathing. Far more real than than the world you and I see.

I know that may sound crazy saying something like that with such conviction. But again, it is impossible to explain fully unless it is experienced. Once experienced, there is no longer any doubt. It is way too encompassing, fantastic and impossible (as far as the objects you see which cannot be manufactured in any way) to think otherwise.

Like McKenna said, it is not just incredibly intricate, it is flat out impossible. Like someone described- like being at the beginning of time and the end of time and everything in between at once amidst the great inner workings of the universe.

Do you remember Jodie Foster in the movie "Contact" ? Remember how she went in a time warp to other worlds of beauty and it lasted less than a split second on earth ? Well that's how beautiful my DMT experience was but multiply it by a Billion..... And remember how no one in the movie believed her story, but you as a viewer witnessed it, she witnessed it, and it was more real to her than anything else ?

No one there, not even her closest friends could ever contemplate what she saw/experienced. But to her, her experience felt real and true, if not more real and true than the air she was breathing. Well,,, there you go.

You, how you are, and I, how I was before going through with it, just cannot come close to comprehending it's magnitude. The meaning of meaning is totally turned up on it's side twisting in a quad-zillion directions during and after the experience. Trying to figure it out is trying to figure it out in a primitive way, the human way- which 1 million Albert Einstein's in a room could never grasp.

Hoss
05-23-2009, 11:52 PM
I love the movie contact... and one question that I had after watching it numerous numerous times (I show it to my grade 6 kids.... get them to listen and question)

the idea that what she experienced was actually "heaven" and that heaven is not a real place, but rather a trip to some other dimension in a sense. The fact that they appear as people you know is from the "downloading of your thoughts" so that you feel comfortable.

One question... I understand the concept that "it is something your body produces anyways" but has there ever been any longer term effects on say the pineal gland..... ie maybe with the introduction of "foreign" dmt, the pineal gland would produce less in REM sleep, or more or whatever. Have you add any issues with sleep or your dreams???

I have been perfectly fine in every way, nothing has changed one iota physically, emotionally or in the dream state. Again, it is perfectly safe and has no long term effects if taken correctly (and if you don't have very high blood pressure).

The medical doctor/researcher/scientist and author of "DMT: The Spiritual Molecule", above, with that groundbreaking work, also has a new book out titled "Inner Paths to Outer Space" . His website is here with his books on the subject (they can also be searched on amazon.com and you can read the glowing reviews)-

http://www.rickstrassman.com/


For thousands of years, voyagers of inner space--spiritual seekers, shamans, and psychoactive drug users--have returned from their inner imaginal travels reporting encounters with alien intelligences. Inner Paths to Outer Space presents an innovative examination of how we can reach these other dimensions of existence and contact otherworldly beings.

Based on their more than 60 combined years of research into the function of the brain, the authors reveal how psychoactive substances such as DMT allow the brain to bypass our five basic senses to unlock a multidimensional realm of existence where otherworldly communication occurs.

They contend that our centuries-old search for alien life-forms has been misdirected and that the alien worlds reflected in visionary science fiction actually mirror the inner space world of our minds. The authors show that these “alien” worlds encountered through altered states of human awareness, either through the use of psychedelics or other methods, possess a sense of reality as great as, or greater than, those of the ordinary awareness perceived by our five senses.

I guess you can read his documented works with the enormous amount of case studies he has conducted to gain a clearer understanding, and any potential answer you are looking for.

McKenna, also has some books out regarding the topic, as well as others which are listed here-

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss_b?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=mckenna+dmt&x=0&y=0


And, once again, Strassman's earlier book-

http://www.rickstrassman.com/pages/dmt/

DMT: The Spirit Molecule

In 1990, I began the first new human research with psychedelic, or hallucinogenic, drugs in the United States in over 20 years. These studies investigated the effects of N,N-dimethyltryptamine, or DMT, an extremely short-acting and powerful psychedelic. During the project's five years, I administered approximately 400 doses of DMT to 60 human volunteers. This research took place at the University of New Mexico's School of Medicine in Albuquerque, where I was tenured Associate Professor of Psychiatry.

I was drawn to DMT because of its presence in all of our bodies. Perhaps excessive DMT production, coming from the mysterious pineal gland, was involved in naturally occurring "psychedelic" states. These might include birth, death and near-death, psychosis, and mystical experiences. Only later, while the study was well under way, did I also begin considering DMT's role in the "alien abduction" experience.

The DMT project was founded on cutting edge brain science, especially the psychopharmacology of serotonin. However, my own background powerfully affected how we prepared people for, and supervised, their drug sessions. One of these was a decades-long relationship with a Zen Buddhist training monastery.

The Spirit Molecule reviews what we know about psychedelic drugs in general, and DMT in particular. It then traces the DMT research project from its earliest intimations through the maze of committees and review boards to its actual performance.

Our research subjects were healthy volunteers. The studies were not intended to be therapeutic, although all of us believed in the potentially beneficial properties of psychedelic drugs. The project generated a wealth of biological and psychological data, much of which I have already published in the scientific literature. On the other hand, I have written nearly nothing about volunteers' stories. I hope these many excerpts from over 1000 pages of my bedside notes provide a sense of the remarkable emotional, psychological, and spiritual effects of this chemical.

Problems inside and outside of the research environment led to the end of these studies in 1995. Despite the difficulties we encountered, I am optimistic about the possible benefits of the controlled use of these drugs. Based upon what we learned in the New Mexico research, I offer a wide-ranging vision for DMT's role in our lives, and conclude by proposing a research agenda and optimal setting for future work with DMT and related drugs.

The late Willis Harman possessed one of the most discerning minds to apply himself to the field of psychedelic research. Willis, earlier in his career, had published the first and only scientific study using psychedelics to enhance the creative process. When I met him 30 years later in 1994, he was president of Institute of Noetic Sciences, an organization founded by the sixth man to walk on the moon, Edgar Mitchell. Mitchell's mystical experience, stimulated by viewing the Earth on his return home, inspired him to study phenomenon outside the range of traditional science, which nevertheless might yield to a broader application of the scientific method.

During a long walk together along the central California coastal range one day, he said firmly, "At the very least, we must enlarge the discussion about psychedelics." It is in response to his request that I include highly speculative ideas and my own personal motivations for performing this research. This approach will satisfy no-one in every respect. There is intense friction between what we know intellectually or even intuitively, and what we experience with the aid of DMT. As one of our volunteers exclaimed after his first high dose session, "Wow! I never expected that!" Or, as Dogen, a thirteenth century Japanese Buddhist teacher said, "We must always be disturbed by the truth." Enthusiasts of the psychedelic drug culture may dislike the conclusion that DMT has no beneficial effects in and of itself; rather, the context in which people take them is at least as important. Proponents of drug control may condemn what they read as encouragement to take psychedelic drugs and a glorification of the DMT experience. Practitioners and spokespersons of traditional religions may reject the suggestion that spiritual states can be accessed, and mystical information gained, through drugs. Those who have undergone "alien abduction," and their advocates, may interpret as a challenge to the "reality" of their experiences my suggestion that DMT is intimately involved in these events. Opponents and supporters of abortion rights may find fault with my proposal that pineal DMT release at 49 days after conception marks the entrance of the spirit into the fetus.

Brain researchers may object to the suggestion that DMT affects the brain's ability to receive information, rather than generating those perceptions themselves. They also may dismiss the proposal that DMT can allow our brains to perceive dark matter or parallel universes, realms of existence inhabited by conscious entities.

However, if I did not describe all the ideas behind the DMT studies, and the entire range of our volunteers' experiences, I would not be telling the entire tale. At best, The Spirit Molecule would have little effect on the scope of discussion about psychedelics; at worst, the book would reduce the field. Nor would I be honest if I did not share my own speculations and theories based upon decades of study, and listening to hundreds of DMT sessions. This is why I did it. This is what happened. This is what I think about it.

It is so important for us to understand consciousness. It is just as important to place psychedelic drugs in general, and DMT in particular, into a personal and cultural matrix where we do the most good, and the least harm. In such a wide open area of inquiry, it is best that we reject no ideas until we actually disprove them. It is in the interest of enlarging the discussion about psychedelic drugs that I've written The Spirit Molecule.

Different than the vid I posted earlier. Say what you want about him, but he is so spot on here it is ridiculous. F*ckin accurate from saying how it will totally change your perspective on life for the better (I said earlier how I think if everyone tried this stuff it would be a far better world, because it would wake people up to see who they really are) , I agree with him mentioning how mindblowing it is how there are actually people on this planet who go through life without this experience- how tying to explain this is like trying to explain a kaleidoscope to a blind man.. The only thing I will disagree with what he says here, is during the very end he says it gets lost like a dream. This is because he took the 5-DMT not the NN-DMT which is far better, and takes you out of your body to multi-dimensional real worlds of beauty of all knowing and power that I and others described above).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smoked_meat


Smoked meat is a method of preparing red meat (and fish) which originates in prehistory. Its purpose is to preserve these protein-rich foods, which would otherwise spoil quickly, for long periods of possibly lean times. There are two mechanisms for this preservation: dehydration and the antibacterial properties of absorbed smoke. In modern days, the enhanced flavor of smoked foods makes it a delicacy in many cultures.

since when is smoked meat a euphemism for dick?

Got to say I understand those cops. You wish you could always be calm and level-headed in all situation but when a guy tries to run over your colleague obviously you'll want to break his face, especially with all the adrenaline from the chase. Can't say I wouldn't have done the same in their shoes.

Btw is the guy dead?

No, the guy is alive, with surprisingly minor injuries, apparently.

I have a hard time siding with the cops on this one. Of course the adreniline is through the roof, but they really whaled on that guy when he was down.

Given the circumstances (trying to kill one of the pursuing officers) I think they should have been suspended without pay, but not fired altogether.

The problem was that incident happened in Alabama, by white cops, against a black man...public pressure was through the roof to make this a racial issue.

This could be one of those cases where everyone got what they deserved. The Guy definitely deserved a beating for trying to run down the cop. The cops probably deserve to be fired too.

That's interesting, because the video was ultimately a defence of scientific method and rejection of superstition, the "paranormal", etc. In the North American politcal narrative, it would be largely an attack against the right wing - e.g. Creationists who attack Darwinism, climate change skeptics, and the like. Having said that, we could easily say the "faith-based" environmentalists are just as unreasonable.

Firstly, I doubt there are many who doubt that the earth is changing (though it isn't necessarily getting warmer - it's actually gotten cooler over the past decade).

But also, his breakdown of open-mindedness destroys the key argument to the average global warmite. "Come on, look at how many cars are on the road, how can that not cause global warming". All they've proven was that there are lots of cars on the road, not proven any undeniable connection.

Obviously counting cars is silly, I don't really think that's a credible example. Now, scientists studying ice cores from Antarctica is a serious business. But I'm sure Rush Limbaugh and and Glenn Beck would argue "it's just a theory" - and those guys get a lot more press than the Sierra Club. So I have no compunction of accusing the political brand of the anti-climate crowd; nor do I have any patience for the political brand enviro-nutbaggery.

As far as the real science is concerned, that's a different issue.

But you have to admit the anti-science crowd on the right (in the US) is a lot louder and way more politicized than the new age quacks on the left.

I've never heard anyone claiming to be knowledgable about climate change stop at "look at how many cars are on the road" as far as making the connection. Even people with the most basic knowledge of the mechanisms can tell you that it's the tailpipe emissions, about how much each car contributes and all that. They can, when pressed, provide hard evidence.

Doubters, on the other hand, tend to provide silly things like "it's cold here today" or "hey look, Mars is also warming/cooling, so it's not just us"(regardless of the article stating it's a seasonal thing in Mars). That's the basic type of thought that the video was taking issue with.

I don't really think the video is well suited as an allegory to the climate change issue, but I think if you must read something into it along those lines, it comes down on the side supported by scientific opinion and research, which right now is human-caused climate change.

And I'm not sure if you know, but the anti-science crowd is littered with scientists. Why would that be? Maybe because despite the UN's report stating a consensus, there isn't one at all? Pro-global warmites have completely abandonded scientific debate on the issue. It's a group of like minded green-beanies who aren't interested in other theories. Their mind is made.

They can, when pressed, provide hard evidence. I didn't say "knowledgable" I said "average". And of course, I wasn't referring to counting cars, I was referring to the exhaust that the cars produce.


it comes down on the side supported by scientific opinion and research, which right now is human-caused climate change.Because that is what pays the bills today. Goto a University and try to get funding on an alternative cause of global warming...a market has been created to defend this theory, and it's harmed scientific process.

Not to mention the earth hasn't heated up in 10 years, and water levels haven't risen in any consequential way.

Oh, and I'll never understand how were going to have a water crisis in this world if there are all sorts of icebergs melting into the ocean.

You can't say 1/50,000 to begin with.

Because to begin with, the chances of a foul ball behind the plate are far greater than a home run.

And I don't think there were 50,000 people there. Even around the kid it was full of empty seats. Upper deck is totally bare.

And I don't think there were 50,000 people there. Even around the kid it was full of empty seats. Upper deck is totally bare.

There are about 50,000 seats. A ball can only go to one seat, so for the purposes of guess-timating it's a good figure to start with. The number of people there is rather inconsequential.

And I've caught two home run balls at the RC in my life. If you sit in the right-field bleachers it's not particularly difficult. The chances of catching a ball twice in the same place in the same at-bat are astonomically rare.

LeafNation
08-24-2009, 04:49 PM
Not really. Considering that the chances are greater a ball will go there somewhere behind the plate in a lower deck, rather than the outfield for a home run, or the upper deck.

So not a good start to guesstimate really.

JaysCyYoung
08-24-2009, 04:50 PM
Yes really. And stop arguing -- that's not the point of the video. It's the fact that it went to the same place to the same kid in the same at-bat.

What's accurate is that your number of odds was way too high. On espn they broke down the chances of catching a ball. And the lower deck behind and both sides of home plate is where the large majority of balls fall.

JaysCyYoung
08-24-2009, 05:08 PM

ay yay yay.. I never said catching two wasn't rare.

But you said to begin with the odds are 1/50,000 to catch one. And that is just not true.

That's it. I'm not trying to argue about it, just pointed that out. Don't blow a gasket over it.
