Pressestimmen

"This book will be of profound interest to . . . anyone with a deep interest in the study of consciousness, visionary states and/or psycho-pharmacology."

Kurzbeschreibung

A clinical psychiatrist explores the effects of DMT, one of the most powerful psychedelics known.


• A behind-the-scenes look at the cutting edge of psychedelic research.


• Provides a unique scientific explanation for the phenomenon of alien abduction experiences.


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.

Format:Taschenbuch
Strassmans Forschungen führen in die verschiedensten Welten des Bewußtseins. Dieses Buch berührt, macht Spaß, provoziert und regt an. Es führt weit über die klassische Betrachtungsweise des Szientismus hinaus und sprüht vor Wärme und Inspiration. Die dargestellten Erlebnisse und Daten zwingen den Leser zu einer Beteiligung an der Frage nach "Realität", Spiritualität und Evolution. Strassman fordert den Leser in einer einzigartigen Weise heraus.
In einer beeindruckenden 5-jährigen Forschungsarbeit hat der Psychiater (und praktizierende Zen-Buddhist) Dr. Rick Strassman eine Reihe von grundlegenden Untersuchungen zur Psychopharmakologie von N,N-Dimethyltryptamin (DMT) durchgeführt.
DMT gehört in die Gruppe der kurzzeitig wirksamen Tryptamine und wird in der Forschungswelt häufig als das stärkste "Psychedelikum" überhaupt bezeichnet.
Das DMT wurde intravenös appliziert und auf diese Weise erhielten 60 gesunde Probanden nahezu 400 Einzeldosen. Das besondere an dieser Arbeit mit DMT:
1. Dies ist die erste amerikanische klinische Studie seit vielen Jahren, in der die Wirkungsweise eines "Psychedelikums" umfassender getestet werden durfte. 2. DMT ist in der Pflanzenwelt sehr weit verbreitet 3. DMT befindet sich in nennenswerten Mengen im menschlichen Nervensystem (vor allem in der Zirbeldrüse des Gehirns. Es kann also als ein endogenes "Psychedelikum" bezeichnet werden).
Dieses Buch ist in VI Teile gegliedert:
Im ersten Teil gibt Strassman einen Überblick über den anthropologischen und historischen Hintergrund der "psychedelischen" Forschung, sowie Informationen über die Psychopharmakologie von DMT und dessen Zusammenhang mit der Zirbeldrüse.

5.0 von 5 Sternen EXTRAORDINARY RESEARCH INTO CONSCIOUSNESS 1. Juni 2003
Format:Taschenbuch
The book reveals and analyses Strassman's clinical research into DMT, a plant-derived substance which is also produced by the brain. As such this is one of the most thought-provoking studies on altered states and the nature of consciousness. The volunteers reported an amazing array of positive mystical or frightening hallucinatory experiences including encounters with intelligent entities.

Strassman's research connects DMT with the pineal gland; this corresponds to the esoteric belief that the pineal, connected with the Crown, Keter or Sahasrara chakra, eases the spirit's movement into different levels of consciousness or various dimensions of existence. Graham Hancock's Supernatural similarly explores the use of psychedelics to induce altered states or allow the soul to explore other dimensions.

Psychedelic substances in science and society, the chemical qualities and molecular structure of DMT, the pineal gland and its role in the psychedelic experience are all discussed in the first part. Part Two relates the history of the author's research, from the actual research proposal through the process of obtaining permission; this section may be skipped by the average reader.

Next Strassman describes the process of selecting volunteers, obtaining DMT and the first experiments, whilst in Part Four he examines the case reports: what the volunteers said and did, their behavior, etc. This makes for strange and fascinating reading. Some experiences were positive and illuminating, resembling uplifting meditative states, whilst others were eerie or deeply unpleasant.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Nüchterner als erwartet 12. Oktober 2014
Von Luigi
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Das Coverbild impliziert ja meiner Meinung nach, dass die Großartigkeit von DMT in diesem Buch angepriesen wird, aber der Autor baut langsam Zweifel daran auf, ob Psychedelica überhaupt Nutzen haben in der klinischen Medizin. Nichtsdestotrotz ist es ein sehr interessantes Buch. Falls man sich noch mehr für die Wissenschaftliche Seite von DMT oder anderen Psychedelica interessiert findet man genug Verweise auf Studien oder andere Bücher. Sofern bekannt werden auch die verschiedenen Wirkmechanismen der Psychedelica erklärt, wobei Marihuana ausgelassen wird.

Leider geht der Auto nicht wirklich auf seine Theorie mit der Nahtoderfahrung und DMT ein. Wer mal ein Buch über Nahtoderfahrungen (ich kann Embraced by the Light von B. J. Eadie sehr empfehlen) gelesen hat und diese Erfahrungen mit den der DMT-Tester vergleicht merkt schnell, dass Nahtoderfahrungen doch komplexer sind, als es in diesem Buch vermutet wird. Auch der Niederländische Kardiologe Pim Van Lommel ist der Meinung dass unser Bewusstsein keine Funktion des Gehirns ist. Letztendlich lässt sich die Frage nicht auf rein materieller Ebene klären denke ich.

Wer etwas über DMT und Psychedelica lernen will und auch über deren klinischen Gebrauch und alle Hürden die damit verbunden sind, sollte dieses Buch lesen. Auch wenn ich mir im Nachhinein nicht sicher bin, ob Strassman mit allem Recht hat was er schreibt war es doch sehr interessant zu lesen!

1.0 von 5 Sternen Ein anderes Urteil 28. April 2003
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Das Buch ist alles in allem schnell gelesen, wenigstens bis dahin wo es selbst dem geduldigsten Leser zu schal wird. Was an dieser Arbeit revolutionär sein soll ist fraglich, vielleicht ja bloß die Möglichkeit ihrer Durchführung bei bestehenden Rechtsvorgaben. Der aufgegriffene Grundgedanke ist für sich ohne Zweifel höchst Bedeutsam, dass er mit diesem Buch jedoch so verwässert auf die Bühne tritt ist bestürzend. Alles was dem Buch wissenschaftliches Gepräge verleihen könnte fehlt, das ganze Material wird als eine wissenschaftlich unaufbereiteten Kost serviert, die sich ganz und gar der Alltagssprache bedient, und unter keinen Umständen vergleichbar ist mit Autoren wie Stanislav Grof. Das macht es zwar leicht verständlich aber banal. Ganz zu schweigen von den Ausführungen jahrelanger rechtlicher Streitereien die einen Großteil des Buches ausmachen und die weis Gott keinen Menschen interessieren. Man erfährt einige allgemein wissenswertes über die Zirbeldrüse und dem Melatonin als N-Acyl-5MetO-DMT, die Apparative Forschung und wissenschaftliche Fundierung bleibt jedoch auf der Strecke, wie der Autor selbst zugeben muss. Worauf man stattdessen überall stößt sind unästhetische Kommentare und Zitate selbst in Kapiteln wie „Death and Dying" und „Mystical States". Dieses alles macht das Buch wenigstens für mich unverdaulich und zu wirklich keiner Bereicherung. Wer an wirklich sachlichen Ausführungen zu diesem Thema interessiert ist nehme den GROF zur Hand.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A fascinating exploration of bios, nous, theos--and xenos. 22. August 2001
Von Soulplex - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Although this book reads more like a journal paper than one might expect based on the trade paperback format and trippy Alex Grey cover art, Dr. Rick Strassman is, after all, a research scientist, not a novelist, and thus may be forgiven for not having a thorough grasp of pacing and the value of dramatic intrigue. Specifically, about a quarter of this book deals with Strassman's convoluted attempts to gain permission to study DMT (which is, for the unfamiliar, LSD's faster-acting, shorter-lasting, knockout-punching cousin), which is admittedly an interesting story, but I am sure I'm not alone in wishing he'd given us a few extra chapters of DMT case studies instead.
And the case studies are intriguing indeed. Through various permutations of set, setting, and dosage, Strassman's volunteers experience DMT trips ranging from explorations of personal emotions and thoughts to full-blown sojourns into Cosmic Consciousness. And somewhere between these polarities of personal ego and impersonal Absolute there reside experiences of an altogether different order. It is these experiences that perhaps set the DMT molecule drastically apart from the other major psychedelic drugs. They're perhaps best explained with an example, and generally go something like this: A person is injected with DMT; within fifteen seconds the person feels a rush and suddenly finds him- or herself perceiving a completely different environment, with no major alteration in the quality of awareness, and usually there appear one or more "beings" in this environment who interact with the person and are felt, with certainty, to be entirely "real" entities, independent of, but not exactly separate from, the DMT tripper's mind. Here is how one of Strassman's subjects describes his experience:
"I felt like I was in an alien laboratory, in a hospital bed like this. . . . A sort of landing bay, or recovery area. There were beings. . . .
"They had a space ready for me. They weren't as surprised as I was. It was incredibly un-psychedelic. I was able to pay attention to detail. There was one main creature, and he seemed to be behind it all, overseeing everything. The others were orderlies, or dis-orderlies.
"They activated a sexual circuit, and I was flushed with an amazing orgasmic energy. A goofy chart popped up like an X-ray in a cartoon, and a yellow illumination indicated that the corresponding system, or series of systems, were fine. They were checking my instruments, testing things. When I was coming out, I couldn't help but think `aliens.' "
As Strassman explains, it was these consistently similar experiences with what could only be identified as "aliens" or "elves" that he found most baffling in the course of his DMT research, and these reports eventually persuaded him to alter his whole relational approach to his volunteers. Rather than interpret and explain away, as psychiatrists are wont to do with just about everything, he decided to proceed with an open mind, to listen and encourage, and then later try to fit the pieces into some coherent theoretical framework, perhaps even invent one if current preconceptions of the nature of reality couldn't accommodate the data (such a novel approach!, sadly enough). It is this open, inquisitive attitude that makes this book eminently satisfying, despite any narrative sluggishness, because rarely does one find this caliber of fastidious, empirical-phenomenological research coupled with investigations into alien encounters, near-death experiences, and ecstatic glimpses of God. Usually, a researcher with this degree of scientific experience has already been too thoroughly digested by the modern religion of scientism to be able to see the very real duality between mind and matter, let alone to entertain such ideas as these: (1) that DMT is produced naturally in the human body by the pineal gland, and the appearance of the pineal gland in the developing human fetus at 49 days post-conception corresponds to the arrival of the soul in the body (with the DMT chemical serving as a kind of doorway between material and astral worlds); (2) that certain meditative practices, such as chanting, cause a vibratory effect in the brain that stimulates the pineal gland to release DMT, thus inciting certain spiritual experiences; and (3) that the phenomenon of alien abduction is so similar to certain DMT trips that they're likely the same thing, which in no way diminishes the "reality" of alien encounters, because, as Strassman theorizes, "Returning to the TV analogy . . . DMT provides regular, repeated, and reliable access to `other' channels. The other planes of existence are always there. . . . But we cannot perceive them because we are not designed to do so; our hard-wiring keeps us tuned in to Channel Normal. It takes only a second or two--the few heartbeats the spirit molecule requires to make its way to the brain--to change the channel, to open our mind to these other planes of existence" (pp. 315-316). A typical alien abduction, then, might either be caused by an unusually high, but naturally occurring, release of DMT by the pineal gland in the brain, or by a similar release of DMT effected by an external, alien source: in both cases the same effect is achieved, and one is able to perceive that "other plane" whence the little gray men spring forth. (And while not as far out as those ideas, Strassman's proposal that an aberrant, consistently high-enough emission of DMT in the brain forms the basis of schizophrenia is also very persuasive, and anyone with some experience with psychedelics should appreciate how someone who had this problem could go completely crazy rather quickly.)
In conclusion, if you're at all interested in psychedelics, brain/mind relations, or parapsychology in general, this is definitely required reading. And if I could recommend only five books from the voluminous library of ufology that are actually well worth reading by any sensitive, intelligent human being, they'd be (in this order): "Angels and Aliens" by Keith Thompson, "Dimensions" by Jacques Vallée, "Communion" by Whitley Strieber, "Abduction" by John Mack--and "DMT" by Rick Strassman.

5.0 von 5 Sternen DMT: A real trip 22. Oktober 2004
Von David J. Kreiter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Rich Stassman's account of his ground-breaking research program with the psychedelic drug DMT is more than a scientific chronicle. His tale of the rigors of such an extraordinary undertaking, from the years he spent gaining permission for the study, getting access to the drug, and carrying out the experiments with human subjects, is suspenseful to the end.

DMT or di-methyl-trptamine is produced by many organisms and is found abundantly in plants and animal tissue. In humans it is believed that it is produced in the tiny pineal gland, which is situated deep within the brain. Its location in the brain corresponds with Eastern Ayurvedic traditions of the highest "chakra". In reptiles, the pineal is a light sensitive organ, and though this function has been lost in humans, it has been referred to as the "third eye". Descartes called it the "seat of the soul", and in modern times it has been a focal point of consciousness research.

Though the academic purpose for the research at the University of New Mexico from 1990 to 1995 was to find the purpose and function of "endogenous" (produced in the body) DMT, as well as its relationship to psychosis, it was Strassman's emersion in the teaching of Buddhism that was his inspiration throughout. Ironically, the findings of his research undermined many of his beliefs and left him alienated from the Buddhist community.

Many of his research subjects were experienced psychedelic users, but they were unprepared for the intensity of DMT. One volunteer described his acute ten minute voyage into another dimension as being hit by a "nuclear cannon." While LSD allows the user a self-guided trip, the DMT experience has its own agenda, stripping the subject of any goals, expectations, and ego. As Stassman said, "DMT as the true spirit molecule, gave the volunteers the trip they needed, rather than the trip they wanted."

But it wasn't only the volunteers of the experiments that were shocked. Strassman was completely unprepared for his subjects' reports of contact with alien beings, reptiles, and other strange entities. In other cases, they described out-of-body experiences, going through tunnels of light, and meeting relatives, spirits, and angels. Strassman soon realized that these reports were very similar to the modern cultural phenomena of alien abductions and near death experiences (NDE)--neither of which were familiar to him prior to his research project.

He theorized that these two phenomena might be caused by excess releases of endogenous DMT from the pineal gland under conditons of stess, such as child birth or severe trauma, causing an NDE. Similarly, a close cousin of DMT, namely melatonin and perhaps DMT itself, is released during the nighttime hours. This, Strassman thought, could give rise to the alien abduction experience, which most often happens in the early morning hours.

Near death experiences have often been used to support religious teachings. Perhaps the reverse should be considered. Religion was invented to explain the strange phenomena experienced due to an excess release of DMT in the body.

Because of the intense reality of the DMT experience, and the volunteers' rejection of psychological, or biological explanations for their journey, Strassman was forced to consider an even more intriguing explanation. Perhaps, DMT does not cause hallucinogenic experiences, but rather, allows our brain to sense different forms of existing reality. The information we receive from the world is limited by our five senses. It is possible that DMT allows us to sense other dimensions and other realities.

In the end the rigors and stresses of the study took a huge toll on Strassman costing him his job and alienation from the Buddhist communtiy. Even though many of the monks, had entered the monistary as a result of the influence of LSD use, their rise to elected power left them unable to support Strassman's research. AS Strassman stated, "Holiness won out over truth."

Rich Strassman's writing style makes this book extremely readable, and the DMT subjects' reports and anecdotal stories make the book difficult to put down. This book warrants a "5 star" rating. I highly recommend DMT the Spirit Molecule.

The book reveals and analyses Strassman's clinical research into DMT, a plant-derived substance which is also produced by the brain. As such this is one of the most thought-provoking studies on altered states and the nature of consciousness. The volunteers reported an amazing array of positive mystical or frightening hallucinatory experiences including encounters with intelligent entities.

Graham Hancock's Supernatural similarly explores the use of psychedelics to induce altered states or allow the soul to explore other dimensions.

Psychedelic substances in science and society, the chemical qualities and molecular structure of DMT, the pineal gland and its role in the psychedelic experience are all discussed in the first part. Part Two relates the history of the author's research, from the actual research proposal through the process of obtaining permission; this section may be skipped by the average reader.

Next Strassman describes the process of selecting volunteers, obtaining DMT and the first experiments, whilst in Part Four he examines the case reports: what the volunteers said and did, their behavior, etc. This makes for strange and fascinating reading. Some experiences were positive and illuminating, resembling uplifting meditative states, whilst others were eerie or deeply unpleasant.

Part Five takes stock of these reports and considers the question of whether the experience was worth the effort for each individual that took part. Strassman attempts to assess the ultimate benefit that each person derived. Definitions come into play and determining something so subjective is difficult but it would appear that the experiments did reward each individual in some way or other.

Then follows a discussion of the soul/psyche and states of consciousness. It seems that spontaneously occurring psychedelic experiences are mediated by elevated levels of endogenous DMT. This `spiritual' molecule thus unlocks unknown territory. If the brain is a receiver, DMT fine-tunes this organ so that the individual consciousness moves beyond familiar awareness into other realms, most of which are inhabited. Many volunteers mentioned a `ripping' sound as they made the transition.

There's a difference between this awareness and normal dreaming. Current psychological theory does not satisfactorily explain the phenomenon or the peculiar experiences, especially as regards the entities encountered. This leads to a speculative discussion on cosmology, the possibility of parallel universes, a multiverse and dark matter with reference to David Deutsch's book The Fabric of Reality.

The author concludes his extraordinary work by looking at the practical use of psychedelics in therapy, as promoters of creativity or as entheogens (substances that trigger spiritual/religious experiences). In this regard I recommend Huston Smith's Cleansing the Doors of Perception: The Religious Significance of Entheogenic Plants and Chemicals.

A varied body of literature is available, from the old classic Phantastica by Louis Lewin through Aldous Huxley's collection of 1960s essays Moksha, to the more recent contributions by Abraham, McKenna and Sheldrake and Giorgio Samorini's Animals and Psychedelics. Plants of the Gods by Schultes et al is a valuable encyclopedic reference work on ethnobotany that is occasionally revised and updated.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting, but needs work... 16. Mai 2004
Von Michael Dickson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This is an interesting, sometimes confusing, work about DMT, probably the most powerful of psychedelics (entheogens). It is interesting when it focuses on the personal experiences of the individuals in the research study that is the focus of the book. It is confusing in that Dr. Strassman at the onset stresses the importance of "setting," the physical environment in which entheogens are taken. He then goes on to give DMT to his research subjects in a hospital room with all manner of distracting noise frequently going on just outside the door or window. This can be highly counterproductive. Strassman knows that, but he carries on the research in that environment anyway. (True, he had no legal alternative.) I was surprised more people did not go bonkers. A few did.

Strassman seemed to undergo a change of heart during the studies. He started with a scientific outlook, which is not surprising. He is a psychiatrist. Toward the end, he began to see that he was in a realm he could not really understand. That is because entheogens have the capacity to alter our reality in momentous ways. They are beyond our science, and they can do things we cannot fathom. Strassman was in over his head.

As my old daddy used to say: It is like trying to explain the workings of the internal combustion engine to a dog.

The book has one huge problem: It is in sore need of an editor's red pencil. Almost the first half is devoted in excruciating detail to the intricacies of obtaining official permission to do this type of research. This book, literally, should be about half its length.

Start reading about halfway through. It gets interesting.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Bold Study of Chemicals and Consciousness 25. März 2001
Von "well-traveled" - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Dr. Strassman describes his research with dimethyltryptamine (DMT), a very powerful psychedelic drug that can produce very profound experiences that go beyond the explanations of our current scientific model. In this bold treatise he explains how this simple chemical induces mystical states that were previously reserved for religion and the occult. Not since Robert Monroe and his Institute's "Hemi-Sync" sound technology have I seen such potential to facilitate such events.
I was relieved to read that this Doctor of Psychiatry didn't reduce these extraordinary experiences of the volunteers down to creative imaginations, and I was impressed with his mature methods of studying a psychedelic drug. This isn't Timothy Leary tuning us in so that we can drop out. This is a scientist who is sincerely searching for something that can enhance our lives in areas such as creativity, therapy, and spirituality.
Dr. Strassman has a good grasp of our culture's perceptions about drugs and he not only discards the militaristic attitude against drug use, but also the naive acceptance that they are always beneficial. His clear insights allow this book to have a wide appeal to a mature audience. Hopefully, as he states, this research will at least be the start of more open discussions of practical applications of psychedelics.
