Under the influence of mushrooms, overall brain activity drops, particularly in certain regions that are densely connected to sensory areas of the brain. When functioning normally, these connective “hubs” appear to help constrain the way we see, hear and experience the world, grounding us in reality. It seems that a lot of brain activity is used to keep the world very ordinary and very familiar. They are also the key nodes of a brain network linked to self-consciousness and depression. Psilocybin cuts activity in these nodes and severs their connection to other brain areas, allowing the senses to run free.
Rick Strassman claims that DMT, which is one of the most powerful psychedelic drugs, can provide a reliable and regular access to the other planes of existence.
Have you ever wondered about the possible alternate realities out there that we will never know about? Well, actually “parallel universes” are always there around us, but we cannot see them because we are simply not designed for this. A few seconds are all that is needed for this spirit molecule to reach the brain and change the mental channel, opening our minds to other planes of existence.
Theoretical physicists believe that the existence of parallel worlds is based on the phenomenon of interference. Parallel worlds interact with each other when the interference occurs. There is an unimaginably huge number of parallel universes, or multiverses, each of which is similar to our own and is subject to the same laws of physics. DMT can allow our brains to feel the Multiverse! DMT can alter brain functions as to grant access to parallel universes, however David Deutsch (a physicist), highly doubts this since quantum computing is required which needs a temperature close to absolute zero.
Nevertheless, Strassman says that establishing contact with parallel universes could be possible since DMT is the key substance that changes the brain’s physical properties, so quantum computing may take place at body temperature.
The study confirms previous research by Imperial College London, that psilocybin, a naturally occurring compound present in “shrooms”, stimulates new brain cell growth and erases frightening memories
