We also have an altered state of consciousness that all healthy humans experience, sleep, where almost everyone experience strange phenomena by dreaming.

And while some might use dreams as evidence of mystical, spiritual, religious or other esoteric phenomena, even among those very few would claim that what happens in dreams actually happens.

What is at least undisputed and understood is that the brain is more than capable of on its own to produce what appears to be sensory experience , and it can do so convincingly and vividly.

Personally I do not find the spiritual interpretation of sensations experienced during altered states of consciousness very compelling. It seems more like using thunder as evidence of gods riding their chariots in the sky than anything else. Iow. a pretty story, but not a good explanation.

So did you order this online from some random company in China or something like that? Out of simple curiosity, mind telling us how much (grams) you ordered and how much you paid?

Assuming you did order it from an overseas supplier, how was the package labeled in order to clear customs?

Regardless of how you sourced it, that was a crazy (and very funny) story. LOL @ what Billy Haywood wrote--"Congrats on still taking risk like a teenager."

Almost unfathomable that you decided to try DMT alone w/out any psych experiences in nearly 20 years. IMO definitely heed what others have already stated regarding set & setting & having a coach / sitter with you.

Re: DMT and knowing

I'm no mod, but an open forum thread is probably not the best place to discuss how to procure DMT and get it past customs.

Not that it is the most likely scenario, but I'd certainly prefer not to be someone's google hit for such a thing.

Why you and most of us cowards don't make as much money or have as much influence as Rogan.

Good point.

That said, I'm not sure I want influence these days. It seems it comes with the price of having to sound like a broken record and only saying what your audience wants to hear.

Re: DMT and knowing

Come to think of it...

This is one of the funniest stories I've ever read on 2+2 forums. Deserves medals.
