Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.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 Rene 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 ""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.

Jeg ble rett og slett sjokkert over at så mange i den yrkesgruppen selv har brukt det vi kaller rusmidler (narkotika). Også at forsøkene som har vært gjort med studenter er under påvirkning av rusmidler. Det er vel ikke slik man får "virkelige" åndelige opplevelser. Hele boken er jo bare en fornektelse av realiteter.

"A dazzling journey through psychedelic drug experimentation and a tantalizing peek into a new model of how the brain and mind work. Strassman's research points toward a physiological basis for spirit and its interaction with the human body; his data suggests that our brain chemistry allows us access to other realms of existence just when we need it most, and his story recounts both the dangers and promises of entering this brave new world." * Bruce Greyson, Editor, Journal of Near-Death Studies * "Highly readable, intriguing, provocative. . . . [An] intellectually courageous book. . . . Will be of great use both to researchers and clinicians, as well as to laypeople." * American Journal of Psychiatry, 2002 * "In the end, I felt the most important element of the book was the contextualization of the questions most important in psychedelic research. Strassman keenly recognizes and extrapolates the areas that appear to be most vital in the further study and theory of psychedelics." * The Psychedelic Press UK, Sept 2009 * "Fascinating stuff! If this kind of thing interests you then pick up this book today." * Loretta Nall, blog by former Alabama Gubernatorial Candidate, June 2009 * "[Strassman] is a gifted writer and makes scientific jargon easy to read. The book gives very interesting examples of what the volunteers envisioned and how they felt throughout the experiences. . . . It is important for us as a society to look at legal, controlled, and supervised experimentation with psychoactive drugs with open minds, and with eventual scientific benefit in mind." * Levi Cox, FLC Law and Society Science & Metaphysics Blog, Feb 2009 * "Near-death experiences. Alien abductions. Lucid dreams. Even gods and goddesses. Try DMT for an explanation and it all holds together. It's brain chemistry. It's neuropharmacology. It's quite possibly other realms. Whatever it is, it's the new frontier, a closer examination of consciousness, and it's very, very exciting!" * betaphilings.com, Dec 2008 * "[Strassman's] account, written more for the layman than the specialist, is ground-breaking, and raises the interesting question as to what is truly a psychedelic experience." * Peter Fenwick, The Scientific and Medical Network, Summer 2007 * "Rick Strassman's experimentation with the psychoactive substance DMT is taking up where Leary's 1950/60's LSD experiments stopped." * Rev. Dr. S. D'Montford, New Dawn, Jan-Feb 2006 * "This book is a highly readable, intriguing, provocative description of Rick Strassman's theories and research concerning the effects of DMT." * Alissa Hirshfeld-Flores, M.A., LMFT, The American Journal of Psychiatry, August 2002 * "The account of the project is an excellent inside view of human drug studies, especially those with psychedelics." * Paul Von Ward, The AHP Perspective, June/July 2002 * "This is probably the most thorough book on the psychedelic, DMT--its history, chemistry, uses (legal and illegal), and its effects. This is a very compelling, thoughtful book, written by a scrupulous scientist with the soul of a meditator." * The Book Reader, Spring/Summer 2002 * "Strassman's research was an important step, one that will potentially illuminate the path for future researchers and volunteers alike, and this book is a great contribution to the ongoing dialogue surrounding psychedelics." * Scotto, Trip, Fall 2001 * "What you will find is a thoughtful, well-written report about another of life's mysteries." * James Dekorne, Fortean Times, November 2001 * "DMT: the Spirit Molecule is an enriching journey into one scientist's courageous attempt to solve a bit more of the brain/mind/spirit mystery at the center of human existence." * Vicki Ecker, UFO Magazine, December-January 2002 * "Strassman's psychonauts regularly found themselves hurtled into alien laboratories, high-tech nurserie
