DMT or Dimethyltryptamine is a chemical compound produced naturally in the pineal gland inside your brain that belongs to the tryptamine family.
This naturally occurring substance is produced and excreted by the pineal gland during sleep and is structurally similar to serotonin. It is found in both animals and plants and is pretty much connected with everything alive on this earth.
The reason this chemical compound gets so much attention is because it is the active component in psychedelic substances such as ayahuasca. Though scientists are still very unsure of its function in the body it is believed to influence our ability to dream visually.
How DMT Works
“DMT binds to serotonin receptors in a manner similar to how psilocin does. This causes neurons that would normally be triggered by the release of serotonin to fire when no actual serotonin is present.
This leads to visual hallucinations and feelings of being separated from reality. Users become more introspective, but also report seeing or “visiting” another reality or dimension, and being completely removed from this one.” -thinkingzygote.com Continue reading →
Minute Physics provides an energetic and entertaining view of old and new problems in physics — all in a minute! And this topic is really important because, well, we are all made of these quantum objects that behave so mysteriously.
“Wave-particle duality” simply means that a quantum particle has the ability to be measured and observed both as a solid stable object located in a precise location and space, and as a non-physical non-local wave smeared out across space where it can be measured as being in more than one place at the same time. It literally flips-flops in and out of being a solid object and a wave. These objects, such as electrons and protons, make up atoms which are the building blocks of all physical reality.
Here are two very short and concise videos talking about this phenomenon:
We experience a world of physical matter, but in reality, matter is just empty space and electrical spin. There is still so much we have to learn!
Mr. Henry Reich has put together a collection of videos explaining sweet and simple science and modern physics! These videos are amazing, and I couldn’t help but share them with you. All of these videos are on Youtube, and you can get there from www.minutephysics.com
