Check out his interview here first!
Rick Doblin, is an ordinary guy with an extraordinary vision. He started off with an idea, he dropped out of school for ten years where he spent his time tripping and figuring out his life. Then he enrolled back into school and with the help of networking and meeting certain people, he ended up finishing his dream: being the founder of MAPS.
I didn’t want to be a criminal. I didn’t want to be underground. I wanted to be a mainstream, normal kinda guy who just happened to be interested in psychedelics.
This is my favorite quote from his interview:
At the same time, I had graduated finally in ’87, and I had planned to go get a clinical psych Ph.D. to learn to do psychotherapy outcome research with MDMA. I almost got into several pretty great clinical psych Ph.D. programs, but in the end nobody wanted to let me in. That was 1998. Then I was like, what am I going to do with my life? So I went home and smoked a joint.
I want to do the same exact thing as he did…get a clinical psychology Ph.D in psychotherapy with a focus on psychedelics instead of MDMA, but my chances are slim and the path to get there is very rough. But now he’s inspired me to go out and persevere…even if I don’t get what I want the first time, there’s always another way around. It may be harder, but hey I want it badly enough to do whatever it takes to pursue my passion. I’d rather live a life of meaning than half-ass my way through it. Anyway, Rick is my new role model and I hope I get the chance to meet him one day…maybe even go on a “trip” with him if I’m lucky 😛
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
