Short Synopsis
Clinical psychiatrist Rick Strassman explores the effects of DMT, one of the most powerful psychedelics known.

Full Synopsis
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 René 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 so-called 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.

"Fascinating and provocative. A remarkable exploration of the boundaries of science and consciousness itself." ---Rupert Sheldrake, author of The Presence of the Past

"This book is essential reading for anyone with an interest in the mind, philosophy, the nature of reality, and spirituality." ---Karl Jansen, M.D., Ph.D.

"What you will find is a thoughtful, well-written report about another of life's mysteries." ---James Dekorne, Fortean Times
