Survey of entity encounter experiences occasioned by inhaled N.N-dimethyltryptamine: Phenomenology, interpretation, and enduring effects 


  • It discusses commonly reported encounters with seemingly autonomous entities following the inhalation of the psychedelic DMT.
  • I know this one might seem a little weird, but I think it’s well worth reading. For a long while now, I’ve been starting to feel that the reality we experience is actually just a sliver of a much larger whole (that usually goes unnoticed). Anecdotes, such as those discussed in the research above, seem to be pointing to the fact that DMT might be able to serve as a bridge to dimensions of the universe that are usually obscured. Time will tell if this is actually true.
  • In addition to being present in many plants and animals, DMT is produced endogenously. As far as I can tell, you can actually release it without the ingestion of a foreign substance, by performing certain forms of breathwork. 


  • “Although 41% of respondents reported fear during the encounter, the most prominent emotions both in the respondent and attributed to the entity were love, kindness, and joy.”
  • “More than half of those who identified as atheist before the experience no longer identified as atheist afterwards. The experiences were rated as among the most meaningful, spiritual, and psychologically insightful lifetime experiences, with persisting positive changes in life satisfaction, purpose, and meaning attributed to the experiences.”


Journal Excerpts

If you want to climb a tree

Holding on is essential

And so is letting go


There are so many lies on the internet

In the forest

There are none
