Falling into God – DMT, 5-MeO-DMT and mystic – Magdalena Jany
In 2012, the lecturer dealt with the subject “Reality Presentations in the DMT Scene” in the field of anthropology at the FUU and wrote a work based on interviews with consumers, online trip reports, books and podcasts of the key figures of the US American 5-MeO-DMT scene. She came to the conclusion that DMT represents a party drug for the fewest consumers, but is mainly used for the purpose of a psycho-spiritual search for meaning, which has clear references to Western / Far Eastern mysticism. The lecture will focus on the lesser known substance 5-MeO-DMT, whose effect consumers often compare to near-death experiences, enlightenment experiences or mystical states. sy-de
