Where do we go when someone gives our system a hard shut down?
Waking up not knowing what happened, why you’re laying down and lack the balance to stand up. We are all on here describing trips, I wanna know about your trips caused by passing out, blacking out, getting knocked out. You can breathe your ass off to release dmt, you can ride the Gforce thing where jet pilots experience 9gs and when the blood pulls from their brain, black out and have a dmt trip. Is this realm the realm we experience on psychedelics? Do different psychedelics take us to other dimensions existing on the same plane?

Neither of those will cause the release of endogenous DMT. Specifically, in both of those examples, the mechanism behind the loss of consciousness/altered state of consciousness is acute hypoxia, meaning the brain is not receiving enough oxygen resulting in grossly impaired cognition and highly abnormal brain states.

Not to be a dick, but it's pretty clear from your post that you have little to no working concept of how the brain and consciousness actually function.

To preface my long-winded response (understatement of the century), good thread man. I like discussions like this but don't all that often really see them on /psy/ even though you'd figure it would be full of them. They show up, they're just surprisingly sparse. Also, I apologize for my bluntness, please don't take it personally. I don't say it intending to insult you, I'm just being forthright. I can definitely be a bit of an asshole.

>Where do we go when someone gives our system a hard shut down?
I think a more important question to ask prior to even attempting to ask yours is "where", if anywhere, are we when we're awake and cognizant? Is it even correct to conceptualize our conscious experience of the self in the context of existing located in some kind of tangible physical setting? In order to go "somewhere else" while knocked unconscious, we must actually be "somewhere" to begin with.

To give you my answer, I don't think it even makes sense to consider ourselves--that is to say, our conscious minds--to be existing in any given place. The mind is a metaphysical phenomenon, meaning it does not physically or temporally exist anywhere within the physical or temporal planes and therefore does not correspond with any spatial or temporal coordinates. There is no way we can hypothetically navigate through space time to a given physical and temporally location and actually stumble across the entity that is the conscious mind.

Consciousness and the mind are emergent properties that result from the physical interactions of specific discrete, localized (in terms of both space and time) components of energy and matter. Therefore, the existence of the mind exists in the imaginary plane, which is like a kind of an "upper" or perhaps "lower/sub" layer that exists beyond the boundaries of the physical and temporal planes (spacetime). It technically exists, but as the name implies, it is entirely imaginary. It is not strictly subject to the limitations and restrictions imposed on the energy and matter within spacetime. The imaginary is allowed a much greater deal of fluidity regarding its state of existence.

>---Part 2---

The imaginary plane consists of realized information created by physical interactions, it's a like a storage device used to contain information so that it can be communicated/trasnmitted and received by the components(energy/matter) of spacetime. The information stored can only be accessed by the localalized components interacting with one another responsible for creating it. Information is created by essentially all physical interactions and the systems they belong to. What I mean by a system is something very broad. It's just any set of components working as part of some interconnected network that takes a form of input and generates an output through the functional interaction of its components. You've got weather systems, electronic communication systems, biological systems, ecological systems, etc.

Well, just as it so happens, consciousness/the mind is the output of our central nervous system, which itself is a system comprised of many biological systems existing with ecological and environmental systems, etc. This means the mind/consciousness/the self (and therefore you, me, and anybody and everybody else) is information that exists in the imaginary plane that is stored, communicated/transmitted and received by the various components of your central nervous system and can only be accessed locally by the system that generated it (you) until some new system is invented or utilized whose mechanism bridges and connects our individual minds to a system that is comprised of an interconnected network of minds.

One such way of connecting an individual human system (from here on out referred to as being a person) is through the creation and manipulation of soundwaves that correspond to sounds and words that are themselves part of a system of language allowing for the meaningful ocmmunication of information by allowing it to be interpreted by the person receiving the information. Another way is through the use of discrete symbols that represent corresponding sounds and words within that language system that can be communicated through a visual medium. The internet itself is an interconnected network allowing for the mass storage and communication of information encoded in visual and auditory formats.

Knowing that, "where" is the internet? Sure, it's run by physical servers connected to one another all over the world, but the internet itself is not located within those servers, they're merely the localized systems generating the imaginary space storing the information comprising the internet. The internet is the whole that is greater than the sum of its parts--a unique entity arising from the mechanism driving the function and interaction of the system's components. It is the manifestation of the unified experience of its system, through its components, operating in harmony.

I think what will help illustrate this a bit more is by asking the same question again, but about something else. So, where is "English"? Where are any of the various languages? Dictionaries? Of course not. The dictionary is merely a documented lexicon of a given language. The words of a language are not the language itself but rather are merely symbolic signifiers of the concepts individual words signify. The rules of a language aren't the language either, but merely the manner in which the components/signifiers of a language (words) are to be oriented to facilitate meaningful communication.

Imaginary entites such as the mind are in fact imaginary systems that utilize the stored information in the imaginary space they exist in to generate new information themselves in I guess what you'd call extraimaginary or superimaginary spaces they generate (this is a recursive process that can be repeated without any real theoretical limit as far as I can tell--the imaginary space is already imaginary so it can't really get any more imaginary from there, it's just a quirk of metaphysical phenomena that it can be repeated infinitely; this isn't the most accurate analogy, but it's a bit like utilizing the identity property in mathematics for algebra problems to help solve them by replacing a number with numbers and the operation of equivalent value). Therefore they do not exist locally in any physical or temporal location, but as functions of local systems located in a given physical and temporal location.

>The summed up conclusion
You do not "go" anywhere when you lose consciousness because you never actually were anywhere to begin with. The mind is metaphysical, imaginary. It is simply the output of a system's operation. "You" only exist in a very loose, indefinite manner that does not fit the understood everyday classification of "existence." You are somewhere between being real and not being real. You simultaneously possess the characteristics of things that can and indeed do exist, and things that cannot and do not. Things that exist in the imaginary plane seemingly both exist dualistically and monistically--it is why you posses characteristics seemingly polar opposite of one another depending on the context you consider things in or the angle you view things from. It's why all truths are but half truths. Logically, what is true cannot be false, but yet any truth you observe is highly conditional and easily becomes false given a simple change of context. A phenomenon's truth is only true provided it can be falsified... that is to say, there exist conditions under which that truth can be false.

The answer here is highly unintuitive; it simply is what it is. It certainly takes a lot of thinking to eventually wrap your head arount it.

How about the other way around...
>The imaginary plane consists of realized information created by physical interactions
That would make imaginary plane conditional on the physical, where as when you understand that both are imaginary, you recognize that the imaginary is the foundation, not the physical.
>it's a like a storage device used to contain information so that it can be communicated/trasnmitted and received by the components(energy/matter) of spacetime
Yeah, that sounds accurate, maybe a simpler way to put it is that it's the nature and structure of existence and so all energy, information, ideas, whatever ARE it.
>Well, just as it so happens, consciousness/the mind is the output of our central nervous system
It helps shape the consciousness into what we experience as consciousness, it's not the source of consciousness/infinity/existence. There are many forms of consciousness and self awareness very different from ours, like a tree or even a rock, they don't have brains...
>and can only be accessed locally by the system that generated it (you) until some new system is invented or utilized whose mechanism bridges and connects our individual minds to a system that is comprised of an interconnected network of minds.
I don't want to start a discussion on this, but FYI we can access each others consciousness by resonance which means we won't become each other but for all intents and purposes we will be partly thinking the same thing (vescica pisces). This is btw quite simple to explain if you subscribe to the non local consciousness understanding of things. If all information is just a set of frequencies and made from the same clay so to speak in the same place then it would make sense that they are connected... I'm not saying this is a good explanation, but at least the realization confirmed by results IRL doesn't boggle my mind like it would for many people who's worldview is a little more narrow. All vibrations being in the same sea of vibrations, when one resonates with another, they interact... Empathy is the first step to telepathy.

I think this is already being done and we call it music, but as you can see the symbols aren't very well defined in such a communication system. If I misunderstood what you meant, I'd really like to hear an elaboration. As for visual symbols until we can create and exchange them freely on the spot via the internet and AI maybe this has a serious bandwidth problem, nut I agree this is an option especially if geometry is utilized in a smart way. Actually such medium has advantages over the primal communication of direct vescica pisces based on resonance. Just how our languages although always getting us lost in translation serve a purpose that would be defeated by too strong a telepathic communication which is btw always happening behind the scenes.
>Knowing that, "where" is the internet?
I concur with your general answer to OP, but not with the details. In this case the internet is an idea that you interpret from the physical reality you interface with. Just like a tree falling in the woods, which is interpreted by you as a sound, if there is no one to hear the sound the falling tree didn't make a sound even though it made the air vibrate if you catch my drift. So as with all similar questions the internet exists in our consciousness which as we have already agreed is non local. The internet being a specific interpretation of the happenings is also a result of our unique perspective on the matter at hand. Just like a sound can only be heard from a perspective of a brain with ears.

When you get knocked out, you don't trip. Because you...

...are knocked out.

If you're unconscious, you can't trip because you need CONSCIOUSNESS to enter a state of ALTERED CONSCIOUSNESS.

Do you not see the point? Yes you are... knocked out.. UNconscious.. yet I have heard people with stories of what happened while they were UNconscious.. from passing out from seeing blood or a friend getting a piercing, to getting punched in the face, they have vivid memory of what they saw. Even if they came two a moment later.

But my friend, you have not mastered telepathy

Telepathy is a form of astral communication

The imaginary plane you speak of is actually the astral plane, and it is a solid (well, sort of), connected plane like the one our bodies live on. Everyone's mind exists on the same plane. I first accomplished long distance telepathy (not in the same room as somebody, this time not even on the same side of town) by using astral projection to travel to a projection of someone else's consciousness and ask them a question. And they gave me an answer. And when she came over the next day I asked her if she heard me and she remembered what I asked her. And she said yes, and she repeated the question I'd asked (in her own words), and then she said, "and I told you..." Unfortunately I don't remember what the question was, but it's the accomplishment that counts. Telepathy is easy. You just form a thought and push it out to the desired receiver, basically. It all comes from the mind, use of the mouth is completely unrelated. As far as I can tell, you are sending the thought as a vibration, which is then received by the brain of the other person, (if they are open to receiving vibrations,) and the brain then decided it into their own thought pattern. Basically their mind might word it differently, but those words would have the same meaning.
This also signifies that the vibration itself is somehow the core of all this. Very interesting, isn't it? This is a wonderful discussion.

I think the main point was solely about how near death experiences send you into never land, gobbledegook land, what ever anyone chooses to call it. When you fall asleep you go to gobbledegook land, when you have a religious experience, when you go thru the G-force machine at nasa. Just drugs aside, we go into that astral plane that drugs tap into. Might have just been making connections where it isn’t necessary to connect them. And in my opinion, OP is right.. there is no difference between where you go smoking or drinking DMT, salvia, datura, meditating, NDE, some people go on day long marathons.. get lost and in that state of dehydration they have hallucinations, you fall off a cruise ship into the ocean and a week goes by before a ship comes yet you’re still alive, but have all these stories about the people you saw and talked to that said a boat would be by yadda yadda. Knocked out? Dreaming, I smoke dmt and I get solid darkness. Sound is what plays a roll in my experiences. Never places or beings. Oh I didn’t break through? Let me try yours. BUT yeah, tldr

Saying something is not proving it. I think most endogenous DMT trippers are claiming they are training their body to produce it and use it more efficiently than a dullard, which seems doable imo.

Pardon me, but you sound incredibly ignorant. There was one day I had not smoked any DMT (in at least several days, which is more than enough for my high metabolism to flush out anything, since you want to be so technical) and I felt the essence of DMT crystals in my brain and tripped out minorly walking in the parking lot. You don't have to believe me, but it happened. DMT is the molecule that causes dreams. It is released in every plant species, why is it so crazy to realize that yes, it is created in the human mind? Furthermore, misrepresenting meditation how? You can use it for any purpose. You can use meditation to clear the mind or to accomplish something. I'm not going to be a dick and say you're misrepresenting meditation as a whole, but you're definitely limiting it. I think maybe if you were more focused on the fact that I encouraged him to meditate rather than get himself knocked out you would have a more upbeat attitude about this

Nothing was proven one way or the other mate, and for the record, I wouldn't want people on here trying to prove their point of view to me. For the ones who are open to it, great. Honest question: if you're not taking /psy/s to connect to all things, why are you taking /psy/s?

It's very strange to me, like people who have never thought outside the box or at least never been successful at it

Yes, that was my point, lol. It's the same place and it's all connected. If there's no oxygen maybe this leaves nothing but the cerebrospinal fluid containing the DMT and perhaps this ratio of low oxygen to high DMT is what causes the trip, and perhaps this balance can be achieved by adding DMT through smoking it or by losing oxygen by...losing oxygen. Or the 3rd option we discussed, which is training your brain to make more. Trust me, as long as you're well fed and perhaps rested enough, you can signal your mind to produce or release endorphins. I've done it before just to prove that I could do it. One can say, well that's a placebo effect! But a placebo effect involves a dopamine release. ;) What I'm getting at is that I think OP is on to something, but like I said he should aim for meditation because depriving the brain of oxygen is stupid lol

you have to have SOME kind of worldview. if you don't have a worldview, you aren't even conscious. you have a point, but you're falling into the exact same trap he is, ironically enough. your idea that you shouldn't have any worldviews is in fact a worldview.

while you somewhat asked my question in the literal sense, i was asking "what does this even mean?" more in the sense that what you were saying seemed to have little actual relevance to what you were talking about or his response. what does materialism specifically have to do with anything, it seems more like you are opposed to dogmatic thinking than materialism in particular, which is funny considering, as i already pointed out, that you seem to be in the exact same position he is, but just on another team.

what i was trying to point out about the materialist comment you made was just how little sense it actually seemed to make given what you actually appeared to be trying to say, and you did the same thing in your response to me with this "don't have world views, that's the first mistake" comment. what does it even mean not to have a worldview? as i already said, not having a worldview is impossible unless you're dead or otherwise unconscious/non-living. i get what you're trying to say, more or less, but you're essentially just spouting nonsense that fits in with your own worldview.

Telling someone to take MORE drugs then reevaluate themselves is usually(of not always) a sign for you to take LESS and do that very thing. I didn't mean to start a shit storm by saying your body doesn't produce enough DMT to trip off of but it doesn't. I didn't mean you couldn't coax it into doing weird shit. You didn't shut anyone down and by your own logic you can't even do so in this type of conversational platform.

Now to explain why even IF you were making yourself produce DMT it wouldn't work. It's simple logic really, if you coaxed your body into slowly producing more DMT then your tolerance for the substance would increase accordingly as ambient levels of the substance raised in blood plasma. Unless of course you could prevent your body from producing MAO and other related oxidizers and enzymes. You couldn't generate bursts like that, it's just not how a byproduct like that works and though it's theorized its stored for its neuroprotective properties during hypoxic crisis it would still be localized and in micrograms(probably less), not a systemic effect. As for your other comment it's all together possible that you're using less of your brain not more. When brain scans were done on one woman while she was "speaking" in "tongues" there was observed decreased activity in her pre/frontal cortext. So ya never really know.

Brother, all I wanted was for you to stop being so sure that you are right and that everyone else is wrong. Maybe we won't call it shitting you down. Maybe we call it knocking down a few pegs. There's nothing wrong with that. My point was not that it's all caused by DMT, though we're all pretty sure it is. My point was that it's the same headspace. But yes, like I also said, I have experienced endogenous DMT release, and tripped very minutely from it. My point, further, was that there is no point in you arguing that I did not have this experience. I appreciate you changing your tone a little bit. The whole "I'm right and you're wrong" attitude is what was really getting on my nerves. Not the fact that we disagree. You haven't had the same experiences as me so how could I be mad? Some people might want to have that experience though. And considering it's a real possibility to do it without drugs or through meditation, you shouldn't be coming in here trying to say it's not, based on nothing other than the fact that you haven't experienced it. We all need a level of humility.

As for your comments that endogenous DMT release would not work due to tolerance, that's simply not true my friend. My little DMT experience in the parking lot was not brought on by smoking DMT. It just happened. I know what DMT smells like and how it feels when it touches the brain. So while you have a nice theory that sounds solid, in reality, it has not worked out that way for me. Also, my understanding is that tolerance for DMT declines pretty rapidly, but maybe that's just my friends and not yours? Who knows.

But we do know, scientifically, that psychedelics do increase brain activity, not decrease it. This was found when scientists did a study on mushrooms and found that the brain seemed to make more connections. This goes along with my first experience of LSD, but which felt like a veil being lifted, and boundaries destroyed. The "boundaries destroyed" was apparently just new connections being made. So for me to take what I've learned from psychedelics and apply it to sober living does mean that, yes, I'm learning to use more of my brain. People who come in here ready and waiting to doubt everything they've never experienced don't give themselves the chance.

"My" tone changed because I'm not the guy you were bickering with, s/he was defending my point, albeit cruelly so. I've experienced ranges of phenomenon from the beginning of kundalini syndrome to countless psychedelic experiences(hundreds) and dissociative(hundreds) as well as many others, it's not a pissing contests. DMT doesn't touch the brain, that is, it does not. It works on a series or set of different receptors in the brain that then causes a systemic perceptual change. It could be any potential set of receptors being buggered by your hooblablooblagoo or whatever the fuck you wanna call it. It's not that I'm right and you're wrong, I'm simply presenting facts(with minimal flavor text). The DMT tolerance I spoke of would simply be due to up regulated levels of neurotransmitters or neuropeptides that result in the production of DMT as a by product. It would mean overall higher ambient levels of DMT.

Fun side note, when I was helping a buddy write/birth a research paper on DMT we found a trial in which DMT was being tested on felines and "schizophrenics"(severe schizoaffective afflicted peoples). Interestingly enough they found that the tolerance is VERY temporary, about 24 hours with a definite ceiling. Also, they found that the schizophrenic patients seemed to have a natural tolerance. Which could mean anything, but also that it could mean the downregulation of first pass oxidizers and other metabolizers of tryptamines is really REALLY bad for regulation of the perception of reality.

I digress, with up regulated ambient levels of DMT the aforementioned tolerance ceiling would thusly rise PREDICTABLY meaning you'd need a bigger burst of that singular substance to generate the effect or affect the individual at all. It would be all together more likely that you're touching HPPD or that something else interesting is going on. Alllllllll of that said I have to ask, how old are you? And yes that number is very VERY relevant.

Meant to also say on the trial bit that the overproduction of tryptamines could also be a factor in the schizophrenics natural tolerance. There wasn't much interest at the time due to when it was conducted, the 50s or 60s I think. Meaning an overproduction of indigenous psychedelic tryptamines is NEVER a good thing.

I'm sorry, I didn't realize you weren't the same person. You seem a lot more intellectual than the other guy. I should clarify one thing to you: when I said touching the brain, I meant the drug entering the receptors. Why I felt the form of actual crystals in my brain, I have no clue. Perhaps a lot was released at once for whatever reason. This was an isolated occurrence unlike dreams and what have you. But I knew what it was and I have no other explanation. I also know it's not a pissing contest, that's why I was trying to tell the other dude I didn't give a shit about proving anything to anyone. You feel me? It's just a conversation to me. I haven't used Facebook in like a week or so because it's just not stimulating conversation to me, at all. It's a bunch of people trying to prove each other wrong, and a bunch of other "useful idiots" trying to ban guns and bring in socialism, thinking they know what "useful idiot" means.

Writing a research paper on DMT? First of all noice. XD here's the thing with schizophrenia. I believe that all things you see and experience are real on some level, because the human body is a finely tuned machine, including the brain, that has had tens of thousands of years to develop to what it is. Genetic defects are caused by synthetic chemicals abridging the DNA by overloading the body to the point that it is able to penetrate into the cell nuclei. This is of course my hypothesis, but I'm right a lot, because of exactly what you mentioned: pattern recognition. Pattern recognition is what causes people to associate DMT with all the things we've discussed.
I have no doubt your hypothesis is correct about the downregulation (you do mean overuse or a sort of burning out, right?) of receptors for psychs being bad for perception of reality. I've learned so much from taking psychedelic drugs that it has changed my life, completely for the better, but when I started to overdo LSD, taking it all the time just because I could, I started to get really loopy. So here's the thing with schizophrenia: it's a heightened level of awareness that an individual does not know how to handle. These people are connecting to spirits and realities that exist on frequencies that do not vibrate between the vibrations of red and violet, which are the lowest and highest vibrations we can perceive visually. There is of course a limit to what we can hear, a decibel range. But these limits are not the end of reality. They are not the edge. There is an infinite range of vibrations. When people speak of alternate dimensions, I'm sure they are speaking of these vibrations that we are as yet unable to perceive. This is a digression for sure, but I enjoy talking about this stuff. In other cultures, people who are gifted with these visions are considered many things, but never crazy. Think about shamanic cultures and things like that, where they practice having visions. Do you think they are all crazy? It's a different way of life, for sure, but I suppose it's what I descend from, because it's what my soul is most accustomed to. If we taught schizophrenic people to use their minds to their fullest potential, instead of medicating them (people who probably don't even need psychedelics to begin with), we would perhaps not have schizophrenia. Perhaps we would be closer to indigenous cultures.
To answer your question, I'm 25.

A few things:

Can I get that link to the study? Sounds fascinating. Second, it's "endogenous" not indigenous, just an fyi. Third, don't psys usually RAISE pattern recognition? Thta's been my experience, and low level, endogenous release of DMT in schizophrenics sounds a lot like what they describe: seeing more patterns everywhere. I think the whole deal with schizophrenics is that their natural state, releasing more DMT than normal people, is underutilized and turned into a shameful thing, something to be "beat down" with antipsychotics. Why not cultivate their "abilities" for lack of a better term and let them see those patterns most people don't. Ever seen schizophrenic art, some of it is AMAZING and psychedelic without them ever having to touch the stuff. All in all, Nobody knows, DMt could connectour souls to Hyperspace or just be "crossing the wires" as some hard-headed materialists will tell you. We don;t know, is the only current answer, but I'd rather have my telescope pointed towards the unknown in case I see something new, y'know? SLAYER

From what I've read there is more evidence pointing to accidental production of bufotenin (a different psychedelic tryptramine) that causes the schizophrenic visions. It's the active component in yopo style snuffs and it's some dark voodoo that I personally would not touch again. It's similar to a DMT breakthrough but it's like it's mad at you for existing.

The overwhelming feelings of terror it causes seem much more in line with what the schizophrenics report to. It's interesting stuff, look into if your hip to, but as with all of this we don't really know. The human mind is still a huge mystery to us.

That makes sense, I wouldn't be surprised if they were all analogues of each other, or if the DMT in our mind is actually just a different molecule that follows the same concept like THC compared to endocannibinoids. Which brings me to my next point...

I literally genetically come from those cultures, at least partially. If you've ever had any conversations with schizophrenic people then you know there's no magic there, just crazy and a lot of it. Trust me, I've spoken with more than a few and it's all bad. As for some of what you see under the influence of those substances it is all together possible that some of what's seen is just filtered bits of information. I imagine the reticular activating system is going bonkers and stuff is building up or slipping through but it can't be good on any level. By definition being less able to perceive survivable reality is less awareness in general. As for sounds we can't hear some are perceived emotionally/mentally ad seen with infrasound in some instances, it's well documente. There's danger in letting belief cloud your judgement and not being able to critically scrutinize them is the basis of delision, so beware.

The crazy in schizophrenics is because of how we handle their mindsets as a culture and society. Everyone knows about neuroplasticity and the power of a strong mindset, they probably wouldn't be as scared and paranoid if it wasn't basically illegal to think in ways that the general hoards of society don't allow into the zeitgeist. OH NO! I SEE SPIRITS, THAT'S NOT ALLOWED IN THIS CENTURY, I AM GOING TO GO TO THE LOONEY BIN! Shit like that I can easily see why schizophrenics get worried, whether "spirits" are real or not is another discussion entirely, but if they are tapping into that shit, it would be really sad if they were getting chemically lobotomized for being able to contact the spirit world, like indigenous cultures say their schizophrenics/shamans do regularly. Whether that;s true or not, I cannot say, but if you think a schizophrenic is any crazier than some CEO with billions of dollars basically all coming from slave labor, exploitation of people and the planet, all for status or money, you're dead wrong. Thing is it is "ok" in the zeitgeist to want more and more money for no reason, and it's not ok to talk to your ancestors or "hear the voice of God", motherfucking rofl

You're thinking of neurogenesis, neuroplasticity is where you rewire your brain by thinking thoughts you WANT to have vs. thoughts you have but don't like. It's a rather simple way to get yourself out of any mental illness. I know some people may find this hard to consider or even taboo to think, especially if they or someone they know has had one but has been kept on medication for it for a long time, but training and rewiring your brain connections by simply strengthening the good ones by using those connections more than the bad ones, I've seen it work personally and get people out of mental issues and illnesses.

Just because you can get visions in meditation, doesn't mean you're tripping balls on DMT. FFS, if I close my eyes and concentrate for half a minute, I can see mental visions right now - completely sober. AM I MAYBE TRIPPIN ON DMT ALL THE FOOKIN TIME????!!??11

The visual systems that normally are used to project your senses into your brain are also used by your imagination to... imagine... things. No DMT needed.

Wow, it's almost like that's the exact theory for endogenous DMT secretion into the brain, some have even called it the "imagination molecule" for that very reason. These would be sub-tripping levels, obviously, but I find it interesting if DMT played a role in how our brain works even while sober. It's in the cerebrospinal fluid, and almost certainly in the pineal (according to studies on smaller mammals), so I see a role in brain function rather elementary.

Not the ones I've met. They were paranoid but not because of anything external. These poor souls were walking in a constant hallucinatory state and it looked exhausting. The delusions of grandeur are also super annoying and deeply disturbing. It's not a mindset man. I've had people look me in the eye and tell me they're the second coming of jesus and they have tiger blood because that's the king of the jungle and eagle blood because they rule the sky. Everyone knows you don't disagree with those people so they actually almost never encounter resistance or persecution outwardly in the modern day so a lot of their paranoid behavior is internally generated. It's not spirits someone's seeing when they tell me Barry Manilow is making rap music and that I'm putting piss and cock roaches in their food. They make models of schizophrenia by using substances like Mk801 to damage rats' brains and watch them trip endlessly. It's just bad stuff man, all bad stuff. Now whether or not spirits are real is a whole other thing.

This is certainly true. The only real difference is in the motivation and intent behind the speculation. It just so happens that there is a greater chance that a scientist speculating about something is actually searching for real answers that they can devise some method to actually test for, even if that ultimately proves them wrong. Scientists are human too and speculate things that confirm their biases, but they're at least trained in the process of putting that to the grindstone and are equipped to actually do that.

>I'd say it's more likely that self-taught people will take the risks to research things the professionals won't, even if it's just because they aren't held back from exploring by widely-held taboos or dogmas in the field.
This is definitely a real problem for the scientific community, unfortunately. Still though, it really depends on what you mean by "doing research" when it comes to self-taught people investigating more taboo subjects. Without the tools and manpower science has, a lot of that research isn't really going to amount to much. That's not to say it doesn't have value, either. This is just one of those regrettable facts about where we're at technologically and culturally today and it's definitely a shame.

I was hoping to make it clear with how I said "Achually", but I was really just kinda making an enthusiastic shitpost to poke fun at you somewhat.
