“They also may dismiss the proposal that DMT can allow our brains to perceive dark matter or parallel universes, realms of existence inhabited by conscious entities.” ― Rick Strassman, DMT: The Spirit Molecule (Book)
DMT is one of the most interesting psychedelic drugs out there to research as not all about it is known. Informative at its core, it displays the substance that is found in all forms of biology in life. The serotonergic dimethyltryptamine (DMT) acts as a serotonin receptor and a chemical antagonist. With the element generating how we dream, this documentary explores the science and the volunteers who experienced concentrated doses.
Based on the book written by Rick Strassman, this adaptation visually displays peoples stories. While there were artists, writers and mystics in it as experts, there were also scientists’ research studies as well. Complementing each other it takes you between metaphysics to accredited documented roles of this drug affect contemporary life.
For an introduction to the Spirit Molecule, it does a lot while could have been double as long. The production contains all sorts of interviews, animations and segments that emphasises points trying to be made. Enough to make you curious about it although waiting for the right information to come to you. Not for everyone but delivers on a decent entertainment value if sceptical about this topic.
