Dimethyltryptamine(known as DMT) is, I would say, the molecule with the most elusive reaction ever. This molecule is apart of the tryptamine family, a family that includes serotonin & such neurotransmitters. So, as you can assume, this compound “DMT” is actually produced and found naturally in leaves, animal skin, and, the most important, the human brain. In the human brain, this compound is released once three months into the development of a new born baby in the womb, and once when the mind and body undergo extraneous pressure and stress, mostly responsible for the “near-death” experiences. DMT is also a naturally occurring, and one of the strongest, psychedelic drugs known. This is why people claim to have seen a white light and various indescribable figures for a brief moment in time before they are rescued from the “near death”. Now, this compound is retrieved in a crystalline form by separating the alkaloid property of the specific plant or animal part through certain chemical procedures (quite simply, it is kind of like cooking). If the extraction provides a crystalline drug as a result, then it is smoked, while the impure alkaloid gummy-ish solution is meant to be swallowed. After ingesting and/or inhaling the drug, the compound reacts with the hypothalamus in an almost instant, and users report seeing their body as they fly out into what they can only describe as the “tenth dimension”, which is an exaggeration of the “trip” they are experiencing. Experiences have an almost exact report of various colored figures and entities, a light that cannot be described, and basically everything that would be considered a metaphysical wonder to the human mind. In other words, the experience is ineffable. Now, in multiple religions, the soul is transferred into the body(while in the womb) in what would be the first trimester, which is when the DMT is activated in the hypothalamus gland. Coincidence? Maybe not. Everyone should definitely read up on this and form their own opinions!
