Fellow disinfo psychonauts might find this of interest… Researcher and DMT-Nexus member Andrew R. Gallimore, PhD., has published a new paper on DMT in the Journal of Scientific Exploration. It is currently being hosted on The Nexian news site, and is free for viewing/download. The role that DMT and its tryptamine relatives- such as 5-meo-dmt and bufotenine -play in the nervous system, and its evolution, is far from fully understood. Hopefully works like this could help shed some much needed light on the subject:

Abstract—Arguably the most remarkable property of the human brain is its ability to construct the world that appears to consciousness. The brain is capable of building worlds during waking life, but also in the complete absence of extrinsic sensory data, entirely from intrinsic thalamocortical activity, as during dreaming. DMT, an extraordinary psychedelic, perturbs brain activity such that indescribably bizarre and apparently alien worlds are built. This property of DMT continues to defy explanation.

The Nexian – Official Magazine of the DMT-Nexus

Screen Shot 2014-02-14 at 11.06.46 AMVia DMT-Nexus comes news of a new electronic periodical of potential interest to some disinfonauts:

The Nexian is a so called e-magazine (e-zine) with contributions from members of our site, the DMT-Nexus. These contributions can be articles about a wide variety of topics including experience reports, growing techniques, extraction teks, interviews, and so on, along with lots of visionary art, all made by DMT-Nexus members.

The DMT-Nexus is the leading source of in-depth and quality information about DMT on the internet today. Our members are engaged in a number of projects, such as a Wiki page, Hyperspace Lexicon, Coalition for Entheogenic Liberty (CEL), Collaborative Research Project, and more. Members have even given presentations at key psychedelics conferences, such as MAPS Psychedelic Science conference in 2013. We are dedicated to the sustainable and safe use of entheogenic plants and substances, and we would love for you to join us and get involved!

Graham Hancock Tries Changa

Graham Hancock has been very outspoken on the issue of sovereignty of one’s own consciousness in recent years, and has been quite open about his experimentation with hallucinogens including Ayahuasca, ibogaine and DMT. In a new article on his website he describes his new experience with changa (a smokable blend of plants including some with DMT):

One recent evening six sovereign adults, taking full responsibility for their own consciousness and their own bodies, gathered for sacred ceremony with changa, a herbal mixture rich in monamine oxidase inhibitors and infused with the forbidden fruit of DMT. I was one of those adults and the two bowls I smoked were respectively my twelfth and thirteenth journeys with inhaled DMT. I have done regular work with DMT over the years in its incarnation in the Ayahuasca brew, more than 50 journeys since 2003, but as everybody who chooses to explore these realms knows, drinking Ayahuasca is special, there is usually a fair degree of negotiation with the brew, the experience is drawn out over several hours and the loving spirit of the vine, Gaian mother of our planet, is the guiding hand.

DMT Use Skyrockets Among American Users

Dmt ideaDisinfonaut DMT tales welcome in the comments! Addiction and recovery site The Fix takes an interest because “Despite powerful hallucinogenic effects and intense vomiting among users, DMT has also been seen as an alternative treatment for addiction”:

DMT, a powerful hallucinogenic compound used in religious rituals among Amazon tribes, has now become a popular recreational drug among U.S. residents.

According to recent reports by the Global Drug Survey and the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, the number of people in the U.S. who have used DMT in some form has risen every year since 2006, with over a million users reported in 2012. The drug is a key component in ayahuasca brew, a combination of two plants grown in South America that has been used as a medicinal and religious aid for tribal peoples in the region for countless years.

One of the plants in the brew, Psychotria viridis, contains dimethyltryptamine, or DMT, which is a common element in many plants and even the human body itself, which neutralizes the potency of the drug.

Substance Analysis Kits – Find out whats in any plant or drug!

http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/substance-analysis-kits-down-with-adulterants

Paranoid about what substance are really on blotter? Or just itching to explore the biochemical treasures hiding within your local plants?

This non-profit harm reduction project from TLConscious is one of its kind and employs an easy to do TLC method for identifying chemicals that goes far beyond a simple test to see if your LSD is truly LSD (but it can do that to).  Its made by those with extensive experience in both the psychedelic and harm reduction community. Even the DMT-Nexus has publicly given the project its full support.

With the plethora of new and old psychoactive chemicals surging out into the cultural ocean, and the urgent need to identify more local DMT and psychoactive containing plant medicines, this project would be a huge step in furthering not only our harm reduction efforts, but our exploratory interests as well. These plants and compounds have an immense  power for unlocking humanities potential, along with deep therapeutic uses.… Read the rest

Coming Out of the Dark Ages, Psychedelic Science, and Freedom Over Consciousness: Introduction to the Benefits of Cannabis, Psilocybin, Ayahuasca, LSD, DMT, and Ibogaine

via chycho

Psychedelic Science1

Robert Anton Wilson, summarizing the works of Dr. Timothy Leary, stated in “The Eight Systems of Consciousness” that we are living through the Dark Ages “like the scholars of the Inquisitorial era”.

“None of Dr. Leary’s most important studies have either suffered refutation or enjoyed confirmation, because enacted law, statues enacted after and because of Dr. Leary’s research – makes it a crime for any other psychologists or psychiatrists to replicate such research. I know you’ve heard that the Inquisition ended in 1819, but in many areas of psychotherapy and medicine, the U.S. government has taken up where the Vatican left off.” – Robert Anton Wilson

Robert Anton Wilson: Consciousness, Conspiracy & Coincidence

The tides, however, are turning. With the federal government stating that they will not interfere with the legalization of cannabis in Washington State and Colorado, and corporate shills like John McCain and mainstream pundits like Dr.

Your Religion Might As Well Be Football

The 12th Man Never DiesAhhh Football season. The crisp feel of fall winds and the sound of drunkenness in the afternoon. There is absolutely nothing more distinctly and disturbingly American than football culture. So, you get a bunch of dudes who may or may not drink very often incredibly drunk in the middle of the afternoon. If their team wins, they get increasingly wasted and elated. If they lose they get dangerously sauced and pissed off. Yeah, that’s gonna end well for the kids.

Don’t fool yourself. Football (or any sport for that matter) wouldn’t exist in its insanely bloated capacity if weed and hallucinogens weren’t outlawed back in the day. People would probably be more into fucking and playing the electro delay sitar. Maybe there’d be porno sitar players. I don’t know. What I do know is that alcohol is legal and because of that, football culture is fucking PERFECT. You work a dumbshit job all day but hell, it’s all worth it because on the weekend you get to throw back drink after drink and yell at people who could kick the living crap out of you.… Read the rest

Visual Diagrams for Administering DMT and Ayahuasca

Screen Shot 2013-08-22 at 8.48.37 AMPerusing the web one night, I stumbled upon these interesting diagrams on the DMT-Nexus. This sort of information can be key to successfully entering the psychedelic state with as coherent and calm a mind as possible. There are solid tips for integration, combinations, efficiency,  and procedural information on things such as brewing, dosages, safety, and so on.

Unfortunately not everyone who would benefit is aware of these things, even if much of it seems like common sense. And there is not many places where it is available all in one package in a format that is easy to digest and share. Having it compiled in such a simple way lends the knowledge to being much more effectively circulated. So have a gander and share these with friends.
