There are many pieces to the puzzle, this one will simply be a review of some of the known Mechanisms modulating our daily reality.
These partial transcriptions of the documentary 'DMT: The Spiritual Molecule' and two lectures by Michael Persinger, will be inter-spliced with a few scholarly quotes in order to further our current understanding of Endogenous Chemical Release via Space Weather's effects on the Human Condition.
(1:40) One of the things, besides what it does, one of the things about DMT that always fascinated me was the fact that: it's such a simple molecule.
[Dave Nichols, PhD - Medicinal Chemist]:
(1:51) DMT stands for Dimethyltryptamine, N,N-Dimethyltryptamine. If you actually look at the ring structure of DMT itself, you only have really four positions that you can attach things to. So, you can make Diethyl, or dipropyl; there are some other types of carbon chains you can attach to that end that do give you compounds that do have activity, but very different from DMT.
[Dennis McKenna, PhD - Ethnopharmacologist]:
(2:20) Biosynthetically it's two steps from tryptophan, right, two trivial enzymatic steps from tryptophan. Well, tryptophan is an amino acid, of course, and it's everywhere. So, all organisms have tryptophan. And all organisms have the two key enzymes that lead to the synthesis of DMT. And these enzymes are very ancient enzymes, they're all over the place, they're again part of basic metabolism; so theoretically anything could synthesize DMT.
[Graham Hancock, Writer]:
(3:02) DMT is astonishingly, widely available in plants and animals all around the world, but so far nobody really knows why it's there or what it's function is.
