From 1990 to 1995, Dr. Rick Strassman at the University of New Mexico did DEA-approved clinical research injecting sixty volunteers with DMT, one of the most potent psychedelic substances known to us. His extensive and detailed account of these sessions is a fascinating exploration of the nature of the human mind and the therapeutic potential of psychedelic substances. DMT, a substance obtained from plants that is also formed by the human brain, repeatedly led to near-death experiences and mystical experiences. Many of the volunteers reported encounters with intelligent, non-human beings, especially "extraterrestrials". Almost everyone felt that the sessions were one of the deepest experiences of their lives. Strassman's research connects DMT with the pineal gland, which the Hindus consider the seat of the seventh chakra and René Descartes called the seat of the soul. The book argues for the bold claim that DMT naturally released by the pineal gland promotes the movement of the soul in and out of the body and is part of the experiences of birth and death; it also seems to be involved in the highest states of meditation and in transcendent sexual experiences. Used wisely, DMT could usher in a period of remarkable advances in the scientific exploration of the most mysterious, mystical regions of the human psyche and soul.
