M U S I C : OSSA DI MARE
It’s time we discuss the absolute profundity of an experience that changes people’s lives forever. In a matter of seconds, everything you know about the world in front of you is ripped away, catapulting your awareness into a dimension of foreign abstraction and pure astonishment.
The most fascinating thing about DMT, or N,N-dimethyltryptamine, is that it occurs naturally in the human body, as well as in many other animal and plant species. Think about that one for one second, the most potent psychedelic known to man, and we are born with it in our system. It is theorised to be produced in the pineal gland, a small marble sized organ in the anatomical center of our brain. DMT is thought to be released from our pineal gland during Near Death Experiences (NDEs), during birth, and when we dream. Structurally, it resembles a common neurotransmitter, serotonin, which is responsible for most of our thoughts, feelings, and reactions. Although the brain denies access to most drugs and chemicals, it takes a particular and remarkable fancy to DMT.
This video is a conceptual representation of what a DMT trip takes you through, this was based by a personal experience which indeed expanded my perception of this reality and connected my self deeper with my purpose as a human being and as an artist.
As Terence McKenna said:
“Psychedelics are illegal not because a loving government is concerned that you may jump out of a third story window. Psychedelics are illegal because they dissolve opinion structures and culturally laid down models of behaviour and information processing. They open you up to the possibility that everything you know is wrong.”
