DMT: A Lost History
DMT is a molecule found in some plants and animal species, that when ingested can cause a profound hallucinogenic spiritual experience with God. It is thought that shamans in the Amazonian rainforest of South America are its first modern users. They prepare a brew containing DMT, named ayahuasca, by mixing two specific plants that are ingested as a ritualistic drink. Western anthropologists were curious to find out where they came up with the idea to combine those two plants to produce this potent drink. The shamans explained that the plants themselves had revealed the secret recipe. There is evidence that the first ritualistic use of this substance in South America was at least 4,000 years ago.
Apparently DMT was also used in Ancient Egypt. Although the plants used to produce ayahuasca are not native to Egypt, DMT containing plants can be found all over the world. The Acacia bush is one such plant that is well known throughout Egypt as the Tree of Life.
One drawing that shows up a lot in Egyptian hieroglyphs is the “Eye of Rah.” This drawing is very similar to a transversal cut of the pineal gland, which is also known as the Third Eye. This is thought by many to be responsible for dreams, the meditative state and even near death experiences.
Looking back on ancient Hindu artwork, there are many commonalities with modern psychedelic art. DMT might have been responsible for this because there are many DMT containing plants found in India. The same can be said for a lot of the breath taking art found in mosques in Iran.
Many reputable researchers around the world believe that the burning bush that Moses saw in the Old Testament was none other than the Acacia bush. The fumes from this burning bush would have been enough to cause a profound entheogenic experience.
When it comes to our times, some people believe that the Freemasons drink a ritualistic elixir that may be just another DMT brew similar to ayahuasca. Apparently, this substance has been consumed by many different cultures since the beginning to time. Watch this film that traces the history of Dimethyltryptamine.
