DMT – Nature’s Quest for Consciousness

DMT – Nature’s Quest for Consciousness

by Andrew Rutajit

Our perception of reality is strongly based upon a delicate balance of chemicals. Altering these chemicals, often resulting in altered states of consciousness and profound inner visual experiences, has been the goal of the shaman for millennia. Today, we have all but abandoned this technique; we are derailing millions of years of human evolution by saturating our reality with materialism, religion, porn, and fried food on a stick. We have traded altering our consciousness via plant-based shamanic techniques for altering our consciousness with electronic media and sugar. A global return to the shamanic techniques of ecstasy could get us back on track. However, power-hungry men on religious crusades long ago demonized and criminalized these shamanic techniques. They wedged themselves between the “pagans” and the direct blissful experience provided naturally by numerous ethnobotanicals. Still today, these people have positioned themselves in such a way that they have become the only “religious experience” available. The foundation of human evolution has been laid upon a persistent quest for more and more consciousness. This combination of religion, materialism, and addiction to entertainment has all but suppressed our natural desire to expand our consciousness. Ironically, an archaic revival may be a giant step to regain a forward direction in our evolutionary drive for more and more consciousness.

DMT, the most potent psychedelic compound known to exist, is manufactured in the ventricle (third eye) system in the human brain. Previously, anatomists relegated these ventricles to a position of little importance; simply calling them bags of fluid used for shock absorption in case of trauma – such as a blow to the head. Occult anatomists, alchemists, and symbolic mythologists have known for millennia that these fluid-filled sacks and the pineal gland that lies directly in the center of it all are connected to consciousness. It has long been speculated that our consciousness exists holistically within the entire chemical and cell composition of the brain. Consequently, the ventricle system of the brain, cerebrospinal fluid, and DMT are all now in the game as a players in the complex question of consciousness. DMT is present in our brains in higher than normal doses during the birth process, higher than normal doses of DMT (possibly a result of REM) may be responsible for vivid dreams during sleep, and DMT is also present in our brains in high doses at the time of death. It is also the active ingredient in the Amazonian shaman’s psychedelic brew called “Ayahuasca.” This is important. It is worth reiteration – this naturally occurring, extremely psychedelic compound is the chemical link to the profound inner visual experiences reported by Amazonian shaman, lucid dreamers and those reporting near death experiences.

Researchers question the ‘worrisome’ trend

By Jennifer Thomas
HealthDay Reporter

MONDAY, Jan. 4 (HealthDay News) — The rate of children aged 2 to 5 who are given antipsychotic medications has doubled in recent years, a new study has found.

Yet little is known about either the effectiveness or the safety of these powerful psychiatric medications in children this age, said researchers from Columbia University and Rutgers University, who looked at data on more than 1 million children with private health insurance.

“It is a worrisome trend, partly because very little is known about the short-term, let alone the long-term, safety of these drugs in this age group,” said study author Dr. Mark Olfson, a professor of clinical psychiatry at Columbia University in New York City.

Prescribing antipsychotics to children in the upper range of that age span — ages 4 and 5 — is justifiable only in rare, intractable situations in which all other treatments, including family and psychological therapy, have been tried and are not working, Olfson said.

Hemp Oil and Cancer

Hemp Oil and Cancer

The American College of Physicians (ACP) issued a new policy statement last week endorsing medical marijuana use. The group is urging the government to reverse its ban on medical treatments using marijuana. “ACP encourages the use of non-smoked forms of THC (the main psychoactive element in marijuana) that have proven therapeutic value,” the new policy statement said. The Philadelphia-based organization, the second largest doctors group in the United States, cited studies into marijuana’s medical applications such as treating severe weight loss associated with illnesses such as AIDS, and treating nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy for cancer patients.[i]

Medical marijuana is becoming more and more associated with anti-carcinogenic effects, which are responsible in preventing or delaying the development of cancer. This means that cannabinoids offer cancer patients a therapeutic option in the treatment of highly invasive cancers. Before we look at the hard medical science that sustains these statements go to http://www.youtube.com/chrychek to see a series of videos that will convince you of the validity of these statements on cancer. The American College of Physicians wants it made legal as do millions of other people. If you or one of your loved ones every get cancer you will be wishing that the government would begin to listen to this medical organization.

12 Million new cases of Cancer Diagnosed in 2007 in the US. In addition Cancer also killed 8 million people worldwide in 2007

After reading the science and watching this video series I am certain that any sane person with cancer or any late stage chronic disease will want free and legal access to hemp oil with a maximum concentration of THC, the active ingredient that is illegal in most places in the world. [ii]
