My search to understand the nature of consciousness has led me to a startling discovery and I want to share it with you. The story starts with the work of a cognitive neuroscientist Dr. Michael Persinger out of Laurentian University in Sudbury, Ontario. His research focused in what is term neurotheology, or the study of explaining religious or spiritual occurrences through neuroscientific terms. Personally, I doubt science can explain all possible spiritual occurrences, but the interesting part of of Dr. Persinger’s work is in the basic promise that for every psychotropic drug, whether it would be chemically based, such as LSD or naturally based such as ayahuasca, depends on receptors in brains designed for these compounds to work. Otherwise in the case of ayahuasca, it’s main ingredient being dimethyltryptamine (DMT), a very powerful hallucinogen that our brain produces, is the compound that is responsible for powerful hallucinogens experiences. DMT has been called the “spirit molecule,” because it induces experiences in people that range from seeing E.T.s to seeing angels and whatever paranormal cryptic experience you can imagine. The compound that induces this chemical has been used by the indigenous populations in the Amazon basins in Peru, Ecuador and Brazil. For thousands of years, shamans have guided people through shamanic experiences in order to help them reconnect with the spirit world, but also to purge them from negative energies, fears, anxieties and anger. In fact, in Peru, ayahuasca is called “la purga” which translate to the purge.
The work of Dr. Persinger indicates that ingesting a compound like ayahuasca is not the only way to inhibit DMT in our brains, according to Dr. Persinger, any kind of psychotropic experience, whether it would be the experiences produced by marihuana, heroin, hashish, LSD, you name it, can be induced through exposing the brain to extremely low frequency (ELF) waves. In fact, during his research, Dr Persinger and his team created a helmet to accomplish just that. They termed it, the “God Helmet,” and they even allowed individuals such as celebrities to come from all over the world to Sudbury, Ontario and experience the effects of the helmet. It is said the effects were like consuming psychotropic drugs. If this is a fact true, you have to wonder why there is still a consistent production of chemicals which induce hallucinations and altered stated, from heroin, meth, cocaine etc. We have war on drugs and an industry in Mexico which is causing thousands of deaths every year, not to account to the related disappearance, kidnappings and killings of many. Thinking about it, a device, could be a helmet, which causes the effects of ayahuasca? Allowing people to connect with realities outside of our five senses, and in many cases has benefitted many, while at the same time, we have legalized drugs like alcohol, caffeine etc which harm so many people? If we can replicate the effects of psychotropic drugs via ELF waves, can’t we do so instead of using anti-depressants? Or any other psychotropic chemical drug which is prescribed by millions of psychiatrists? Why are there chemicals in their place? Chemicals which are proven to induce addiction, and if you read my other posts, perhaps responsible for things like shootings and more problems than solutions?
