DMT-The Spiritual Molecule (Documentary)

In this very interesting documentary, we can see various theories outlined about why the brain generates DMT (Dimethyltryptamine) and what this substance does (one of the greatest mysteries of modern neuroscience).
On the one hand, DMT is molecularly similar to serotonin and meets all the conditions to be a neurotransmitter. But this doesn't answer the question of why the DMT is there and what it is doing (it doesn't help that it is illegal to study it).
Dr. Rick Strassman believes that DMT could be synthesized in the pineal gland, since it has all the enzymes and precursors necessary to do it (Dennis Mckenna says that in reality all living things in nature theoretically have the chemical bases to synthesize DMT and that this could be the basic element of the language of nature).
The pineal gland historically is the spiritual center of the human organism, seat of the third eye. René Descartes himself, father of rationalism, wrote that the pineal gland ‘secretes spirits’, something that was received as a delusion, but which in the light of the new science could be a moment of great clarity. Strassman believes that it is possible that the DMT secretion goes hand in hand with religious views reported by mystics since the dawn of history. The documentary even explores an interesting possibility: that the pineal gland controls the entrance and exit of the spirit to the body; this would explain the similarity between near death experiences and DMT trips. This is reinforced by the fact that the pineal gland is detected in the human fetus at the seventh week, which is equivalent to the 49 days that - it is said in the Bardo Thodol (Tibetan Book of the Dead) - it takes a soul to reincarnate.
Terence Mckenna's brother Dennis leads us to another remarkable aspect of DMT, its unmatched ability to produce religious visions of cosmic unity. Mckenna says that it is an "instantaneous pill of supreme metaphysical realities" and that the human being has a "detector of divinity in the brain"
The release of this molecule is increased by the gland during sleep states, meditative states and near death experiences. Each case mentioned is questioned by skeptics as a physical-chemical phenomenon limited to the brain organ. However, at the moment there are no valid hypotheses that relate the reason for the release of DMT (and the consequent formation of images) in near-death states.
As recognized by Rick Strassman, famous protagonist in exhaustive studies of the effects of DMT in humans, the pineal gland would be nothing more than the sixth chakra or ajna of which the Vedic tradition speaks, the window of Brahma that is named in Hinduism , the celestial eye of which the ancient Chinese speak, the Niwan palace that the Taoists know or the "seat of the soul" that Descartes exposed. In either case, science and reality seem to have found a possible point of contact in a millimeter space, lost right in the center of the brain.
DMT or Dimethyltryptamine, is a powerful psychoactive, which is present in many plants and is even produced in small quantities by the human and animal brain, it is responsible for generating from dreams to altered states of consciousness, freeing the mind Of many of the psychological barriers that it creates during the life of the human being, it opens the doors to experiences so powerful that those who have tried it say that they were never the same again.
DMT is an alkaloid present in many types of European and Asian plants such as Acacia, Mimosa, Virola and in some South American plants with which Yopo and Ayahuasca are prepared. Its chemical name is Diemetriltryptamine and its effects appear quickly and are short-lived, so in the 60s it was baptized with the name of Businessman's trip (the trip of the businessman)
DMT was first synthesized in 1931 and its hallucinogenic characteristics were discovered in 1956, but this drug is also produced naturally in our brain during dreamy states. All ancestral cultures discovered very similar ways of using it and for all of them the DMT was the gateway to other planes of existence, other dimensions where time and space collapse
