A clinical psychiatrist explores the effects of DMT, one of the most powerful psychedelics known.
• A behind-the-scenes look at the cutting edge of psychedelic research.
• Provides a unique scientific explanation for the phenomenon of alien abduction experiences.
From 1990 to 1995 Dr. Rick Strassman conducted U.S. Government-approved and funded clinical research at the University
of New Mexico in which he injected sixty volunteers with DMT, one of the most powerful psychedelics known. His detailed
account of those sessions is an extraordinarily riveting inquiry into the nature of the human mind and the therapeutic
potential of psychedelics. DMT, a plant-derived chemical found in the psychedelic Amazon brew, ayahuasca, is also
manufactured by the human brain. In Strassman's volunteers, it consistently produced near-death and mystical
experiences. Many reported convincing encounters with intelligent nonhuman presences, aliens, angels, and spirits.
Nearly all felt that the sessions were among the most profound experiences of their lives.
Strassman's research connects DMT with the pineal gland, considered by Hindus to be the site of the seventh chakra and
by Rene Descartes to be the seat of the soul. DMT: The Spirit Molecule makes the bold case that DMT, naturally released
by the pineal gland, facilitates the soul's movement in and out of the body and is an integral part of the birth and
death experiences, as well as the highest states of meditation and even sexual transcendence. Strassman also believes
that "alien abduction experiences" are brought on by accidental releases of DMT. If used wisely, DMT could trigger a
period of remarkable progress in the scientific exploration of the most mystical regions of the human mind and soul.
