Hi Jim. Not sure if spelling is right something like Ayurvedic. Think it is the juice of a plant. I know the Ancient Indians used it.

New one on me. I just don't get it; it's not what they think it is. Shows just how far off track we are.

i guess it's a long shot but i wonder if it has more to do with the development of the pineal gland than external stimuli administered to the brain in the form of halucinogens .i have wondered this for a long time perhaps our evolutionary path is taking us away from it's purpose ( and why we would have needed it ) and we have almost lost the use for it now ? i wonder if anyone has been able to ascertain if it was more developed in our ancestors but soft tissue does not survive the ravages of time so maybe no way of knowing now .

I had gotten an email from Rick Strassman ... bottom line - after all this time - "We don't know very much about the endogenous DMT system."

As far as the ancients creating more endogenous DMT than we do today ... they don't know. They aren't even sure yet where it comes from. All I can say is that religion seems to have come from this source, however, the differences in all the stories, age after age (including the biggest change from polytheism to monotheism), shows that it is NOT a "reliable source" for data.

Hi Jim. Just looked up the proper spelling to that drug my friend tried in Peru, it was Ayahuasca, maybe that will make more sense to you.

Ayahuasca, well that would certainly make you vomit according to Graham Hancock's experience with it.
and its form contains DMT.

Traditionally among Amazonian tribes, the B.Caapi vine is considered to be the "spirit" of ayahuasca, the gatekeeper, and guide to the otherworldly realms.

Ahh .. yeah ...

I just don't understand why people would choose ANY alternative to learning beyond picking up books and engaging the constructivist approach. The ancients may have had an excuse, but we don't.

Part of my approach is the "experiencer vs experiencer" methodology used to "teach." Are there really "otherworldly realms?" Yes. Is there a "gatekeeper?" You can use that term, but whatever you want to call it, mine came to me with the "door" wide open ... I was never "asked" to do anything. I was presented with a picture I didn't understand, and it was up to me to follow it if I wanted to. Who was this "gatekeeper?" I have no idea to this day - even when I ask to "meet" someone ... it never happened. Every aspect of these "trips" (like all the other "experiences" I've looked at) are the direct opposite of what I went through. Why is this? NO ONE - to this day - has come up with an answer.

Everything for me boils down to Henri Bergson’s line: “The present contains nothing more than the past, and what is found in the effect was already in the cause.” I mean - seriously - how simple is that?

The perfect analogy....
